    I took the small gray vent plate off to try and see where the noise was coming from. It was not coming from the small wheel area were the belt goes through. It sounded like it was coming from the large cylinder drum. I was thinking it was the belt but I cannot tell.

    It gets very loud and consistent at times and them it stops for awhile.

    I spayed a little W40 on the side of the drum. That helped about 10 minutes and today it is back sqeaking it but not as bad as it was.

My Maytag dryer is 14 years old. Now it makes a


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Yes, replacing the drum rollers is fairly cheap especially if you do it yourself, saves you the price of a new dryer for a few more years maybe.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Maytag Dryer, 25 year old dryer has a loud squeak


Hello.

The squeaking is coming from the rollers that the drum rides on. If you take the model number to a local appliance service store they will have the parts and be able to direct you on replacing them.

Maytag gas Dryer is Noisy


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.
