Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
I have the Maytag Dependable Care Quiet Plus Heavy Duty Intelldry Control, Model: LDE8616ACE Seral: 10579851SB.
When the dryer runs it makes a thumping/screeching sound and then every once in a while it will add a third sound. The third type of sound is almost like an old cat moaning or squealing very loudly. Its extremely annoying and almost haunting.
Do you think its a bearing, the rollers or the idler pulley?
Your description sounds like one or both of the rear drum supports (rollers) is bad. A quiet thumping is almost always present as the weld in the drum comes in contact with the drum supports. A binding support will squeal, and the thumping could be worse at that time. After running the dryer until the noises are present, once disassembled, you can tell if a support is bunding or rolling normally by spinning it by hand. The same goes for the idler pulley. Make sure power is disconnected from the unit befor attempting any repairs.
While the unit is disassembled for repair, make sure your your old cat is not inside.
