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

Hi, this is a belt issue. make sure the tension on the belt/motor is sufficient. adjust to specs. if the belt is fine, this will be bad bearings in the roller assembly.

Replace the rollers in this case.

SOURCE: Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise

Maybe your problem is coming from the bushing shaft part. Mine was so used that it made a terrible and high pitched sound.

Try to look behind your machine, remove the part hidding the bushing shaft and check if everything is ok.

My bushing shaft was make of metal, and I replaced it with a teflon one. Everything is working fine right now.

Have a good day.

High pitch squeal-metal on metal contact


A lot of dryers have plastic or felt slides on the drum. This is to reduce friction as it rotates. They are probably worn off.

Thumping/Screeching sound, MD:LDE8616ACE. Rollers? Idler Pulley?


Your description sounds like one or both of the rear drum supports (rollers) is bad. A quiet thumping is almost always present as the weld in the drum comes in contact with the drum supports. A binding support will squeal, and the thumping could be worse at that time. After running the dryer until the noises are present, once disassembled, you can tell if a support is bunding or rolling normally by spinning it by hand. The same goes for the idler pulley. Make sure power is disconnected from the unit befor attempting any repairs.

While the unit is disassembled for repair, make sure your your old cat is not inside.
