Question about Maytag Dryers
I have a kenmore elite he4 dryer and I have pulled the bottom front panel off and can see the pulley but it hard to reach. What do i need to pull off to access the pulley?

There is a pulley that holds the belt tight (a tensioner) that usually is the culprit. Opening the dryer differs depending on which model you have. Most open by releasing the spring clips on the left and right sides of the front panel where the top meets the front. The top then tilts back, giving you access to the screws that hold the front on, so that it too can be removed. If these instructions don't quite work, post back with the model you have and ask for how to open it.
Once you have the front panel off you can get to the pulley (underneath everything).
It needs either a drop of oil on the axle, or if it is really worn, replacement. There are also two wheels at the back of the machine that the dryer drum rolls on that might be squeaking too.
