There is something causing the drive motor to bog down. This means the fan isnt spinning fast enough and the whole unit is overheating. Check for anything around the edges of the drum, coins keys etc. The squeal is the belt from the drum being stuck. See how hard it is to turn by hand.

SOURCE: Very loud metal on metal screeching noise maytag model LDE8414ACE

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Loud metal-metal "screeching" sounds will eminate from the front bearing glides, (click on link below), for a picture of the glides. Link provided by www.repairclinic.com, they provide repair parts, disassembly procedures and diagrams.
You may also want to inspect for foreign objects in the front and rear drum seals and in the blower.
Drum rollers may sometimes cause loud noises also.

SOURCE: Whirlpool 7 cycle 4 temp dryer won't start. I can

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair. It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing, if there is continuity then the problem is with the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Maytag Neptune dryer timer won't stop


If the timer is not stopping as it goes around then it's for sure the timer. The timer does pretty much all the work with controlling the dryer. And if it's physically not stopping going around then it has broken.

Dryer stops mid cycle-restarts when cooled down--is it some sensor?


Good day,
Yes it's a sensor, but if you have to restart it manually after the cool down period, it is the sensor built into the motor.
That sensor measures motor temperature and current draw. It locks out the motor until it reaches normal temperature.

If it restarts on it's own, then post back with the complete model number. It would be a different problem.

My dryer has been difficult to start lately especially if stopped mid cycle. The lights are all on but it won't start up. Today I only used it 2 times and it was very difficult to start after pressing many...


You may be experiencing "Heat Retention" by stopping your dryer mid-cycle, which you should NOT ever have to do! If you have a minor vent restriction or if you open the dryer mid-cycle when the heat is on, this will cause a disruption in the airflow and rising temperatures can keep the dryer from restarting until it has been cooled long enough.
Check your vent all the way to the outside for restrictions/obstructions every 6 months. Clean your lint filter after each load and DO NOT stop the dryer mid-cycle!
Note: Stopping the dryer mid-cycle can also cause severe burns and even melt polyester fibers.
