Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Neptune gas dryer rattles sporadically when running.

My gas dryer rattles like there is something metal/tin sounding loose, but that is not the case. The drum is intact, do the rollers need replaced or is it something else? It works and dries correctly, just very loud.

Sdg109wf when running it like rattling sound coming out. what do i\I have to do?

You may have to find a way to identify the location of the sound; type of sound..metal on metal, like something is loose?
The only thing I know that rattles in a dryer is if something got into the baffles/the wings on the inside of the drum.
If this is the case you have to open the top of the drum and unscrew the one baffle that that has something loose in it.

Re: Samsung DV419AG (gas) Dryer.... This dryer is quite new, but has developed an internal rattle, which increases in intensity as the dryer heats and is used. It sounds like either somthing loose, or...

I just had a similar problem. The tech said that is a bad gas valve solenoid and its common for new dryers that have been sitting around for a while. The solenoid coils/springs don't get exercised so over time, the coil loses its "spring" and the valve is just loose and rattles. It was fixed under warranty at no charge.

The tumbler makes a terrible noise - I'm sure it's just a coin or a screw rattling around in there. I can't figure out how to get inside to look around the tumbler to see what it may be. And once...

Open the door and look inside - yes, you can see everything inside the drum. Sometimes buttons, especially the metal ones on denim pants, can make a pretty good racket.

If you don't find any foreign objects inside the drum, and the dryer makes noise even when it's empty, it may be time to change the drum rollers or the belt tensioner pulley. It's also remotely possible that there's something batting about in the blower housing, but if that is the case, it would probably be a screw or something broken off of the ductwork, or the blower itself is loose on the shaft. Post back if you need instructions for checking the mechanism underneath the drum.

Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer - rattling noise

Your probably going to have to remove the rear panel and take a look to see what is causing the noise.
Disconnect the power cord and exhaust tube, remove the rear panel and check for anything loose.
You can also pop the lid and fold it back to inspect the top of the tub and belt. Roll the drum all the way around and inspect the belt for "chunks" missing.
If you include your model number, I can send you a web site that will show you an exploded view of the dryer.

Can the Maytag Neptune Gas dryer converted to electric?

A gas dryer is dedicated to the use of gas to supply its heating function. It works on 125 volts. No way can a gas dryer become an electric one. UNLESS!
you just want to hang out yer clothes under the sun and use the dryer as a way to fluuf up yer clothes OR you could place the dryer into a box and make a condenser dryer out of it. Like cool hand luke you will toss that dryer into a rigid metal box in direct sunlight so that it can be an unbearable 140 degree up in there. then grab yer clothes and toss em in there and close that tar paer lined tin box up my friend.Let the sun do its thang. I think i just invent the redneck dryer! we don't need no stinking gas. Green power to the people! LOL
