Your drive belt is old and has glazed. It will likely break soon. Replace it. Make sure the belt contact area is clean and free of any kind of dirt or grease.

MED9700SQ dryer sensor light comes on but will not run

I have the same problem with the same model Maytag dryer. I called a repairman and paid a hefty service charge and the repairman found that the electronic control board needed to be replaced. This particular part (Part #8558455) costs between $250 and $350. Evidently there are many people with the same problem.

Loud squeling

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the dryer ID doesn't mean very
much to me. Over the years, I haven't had much
trouble with my dryers. However I can refer you to where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair information on dryers and
other appliances. I think you'll find what you need
there. If you have an error code you can probably
find the meaning of it there. Good luck with it.
If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

Maytag dryer model#PYE2300AYW turns on but makes loud noise when tumbling. whats wrong with it?

If it is a metallic noise, it can either be a pulley with bad bearings, or possibly the rear drum support/ bearing. If squeeling noise, possile belt. I would open the unit and check it out. Keep in mind that, in many cases, the repair can be more than buying a new unit. I bought a good, new dryer from Lowes for around $200. It would be hard to get a repair guy to come out and do the repair for that amount. Choose wisely grasshopper.
