Hello.

Usually when a Maytag dryer makes a noise like that, the blower wheel is bad and will need to be replaced. This is a common problem and and a fairly easy repair. Take you model number to your local repair shop and they can get you the part and instructions on how to replace it.

My dryer (maytag atlantis) has started making a loud clunking noise with each revolution. its still drying fine but sounds terrible. any thoughts?


A loose belt will allow the drum to slip when clothes hit the paddles in the drum. It sometimes sounds like a pair of tennis shoes are in the dryer when it slips and is usually rythymic.

These machines also use drum rollers that can make a racket when they go bad.

Good luck.

Our Maytag Performa washing machine began making a loud noise similar to a tennis shoe banging in the inside. Now it won't spin. Could it be the belt?


I think there is more of a problem than just a belt,If you have been actually washing shoes in there then there might be a problem with the gearbox.

Clunking noise, like a tennis shoe, top right rear of dryer


HI sounds to me like your drum support is worn, it would make a thumping sound. You have 2 you should replace them both.
If you are needing a part - call this toll free number 1 877-489-5610, I have used them many times, they are the best. Best of all overnight shipping!

Washer makes loud, thumping noises during spin cycle.


support bracket that supports the tub is breaking. stick your hand inside and push up and down and see if its coming apart. if u look at it when it runs does it wobble?(the tub) if not take a look at the pulley on the back and see if its wobbly.

How do I get to the belt on my Mdaytag SDE 3606 AYW


Its not a hard job...just time consuming because you have to remove the front panel and the front screws for the top panel, to allow it to lift up. (or on the newer Maytags, made by Whirlpool...the top may come off first, then the front). That allows access to the dryer drum and the belt runs around it. The belt also runs around the idler wheel assembly, so be sure to make a diagram (or if you have a digital camera, take a photo) before removing the old belt, so you know how to re-install the new one.

As always, before working on any electrical appliance, be sure and unplug if first. It also helps to move the dryer out into the kitchen and against a counter top, so the top lid has something to rest against when you raise the front of it up.

Here's a good website with photos that will help you better than I could explain it:
http://repair2000.com/wpoolbelt.htm
Maytag is manufactured by Whirlpool and even if your model doesn't look exactly like the dryer in the photos, it will be close enough to help you.

Hope that helps

Maytag Neptune dryer won't start/


I do not have that specific dryer but try these simple steps.
Maybe they will help you.
1. Shut the electric breaker off to the dryer for about 30 seconds and and back on.
2. Open the dryer door and inspect the switch that tells the dryer the door is closed. work it by hand just to make sure it is not stuck.
3. Spin the timer controls to another setting and see if the other setting will work.

That's all I've got for now...
