Question about Maytag MDE2400A Electric Dryer
My dryer is only 2 years old and after using it for about 15-20 minutes, it starts making a high pitch squeek. I have looked inside and everything is very clean and belt looked in good shape but I noticed the square plastic part which I believe to be the drum roller support has been worn down due to rubbing with the metal part coming out of the drum. I believe I can fix this by replacing this part and by adding a bit of oil to the metal part coming in contact with the support. Does this make sense? Are there Maytag part stores in Ontario Canada or do other stores carry this part?
You can try some very light oil on it to see if it helps. Also check the heating element housing and mounts. Sometimes you will get some sheetmetal squeeks as things heat up and cool down causing the sheetmetal to loosen and rub against each other.
I am sure you can get the parts locally, if not you can order them off the net or from Sears.
Post back to let me know what you find out.
