I have a maytage dryer model# mde2706ayw and it is making a loud squicking noise on and off. it is sometimes really loud and only last a few seconds on and off during the whole cycle


Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

When the dryer is turned on, it usually starts slow


Could just be the drive belt, or the motor starter is faulty.

When dryer start button is pushed it hums and whirrs but most of the time it won't start. WHen it does start it seems to overheat.


Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt or a belt that is slipping. ALL WAYS UNPLUG YOU DRYER BEFORE DOING ANY WORK ON IT.
It will turn the drum slowly and cause the blower not to turn up to speed causing an overheat problem. Sometimes the overheat problem is also caused by the thermostat/thermistors being faulty. You would have to remove the back of the dryer to look for the air tube going from the blower to the drum. This is normally where the thermostats/thermistor is located.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Model no. LDE8506ACE has a noise when running seems like maybe drum rollers or belt. how do I get to drum?


This link is provided by www.repairclinic.com and shows parts breakdown/disassembly procedures, etc.
A faulty blower could also cause a noise during operation and as the motor slow rpms on stopping.

If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.
