The belt is worn out. Have the whole unit cleaned, and the bearings checked.

SOURCE: Maytag dryer does not maintain heat and clothes smell

Save yourself the repair call and replace the gas coils. They're a $30 part and it takes all of five minutes. Works like a charm.

Try Repairclinic.com for help and parts. You are going to need heat resistant grease, and probably snap ring pliers.

TRY SPINNING THE DRUM BY HAND. IF IT SPINS EASY, YOU HAVE A BELT BROKEN.
MOST LIKELY THE BANG WAS WHEN THE BELT BROKE. YOU NEED TO PULL THE DRYER OUT, OPEN IT UP AND REPLACE THE BELT. A SERVICE APPLIANCE REPAIR WILL NEED TO BE CALLED. - - SORRY

It is making a horrible squealing nose when it runs and takes forever to dry. it is a maytag atlantis 7600 electric dryer.


The squealing noise you are describing sounds like the drum rollers in need of lubrication or replacement.
The problem with the drying could be a faulty heating coil and or faulty thermostats.
If your machine is a front loading machine:
Unplug the power cord to the dryer, remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum and belt, then remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in one Oil. If the drum roller is worn or have flat spots on them, then you may need to replace them.
Remove the back of the machine and this will expose the air tube, find the air tube from the blower to the drum, normally inside this tube you will find the heating coil and thermostats.
Good luck, I hope this helps

My maytag neptune gas dryer model #MDG3000AWW When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't and then it gets this smell like something is burning?...


It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.
