Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
Dryer is has a high pitched squeeling noise (hurts my ears) when operating and out of operations and you manually turn the drum. The dryer will operate, however, just a very loud squeeling noise and after it runs I smell a burning smell (like an old sewing machine smell, if you know what I mean - maybe oil)
Turned the drum support wheels; no noise. Turned the motor pulley and that is where the noise is coming from EEEKKKKK. Is this hard to fix?? Do I have to replace the motor???
thanks - Diana
Are you saying that the motor squeals when you turn the motor shaft? if so a bearing in the motor sounds like it would be bad. you should be able to buy another motor in that case but the cost may warrant you just buying another dryer. maybe you could find a used one from an appliance repair man.
