The problem sounds like your drum rollers, you can try to lube them by pulling the front of the dryer off and removing the drum. Or you can replace them by removing the front of the dryer and removing the drum.

Maytag neptune mde5500ayw chirping, buttons wont do anything. was told to replace control board. that did'nt help at all. any ideas?


The blower wheel on these tends to wallow out. That makes the dryer overheat and take twice as long to dry the clothes. Lint begins to build up in the filter housing. Finally the temp exceeds 350 and the round white fuse on the blower housing melts. Boom you has got a dead dryer. To get into the slopefront type dryer seems a bit intimidating bit really is not. Remove the door. The door is reverseable so 2 more screws opposide need to also be removed. Then the goalpost shaped front pops off. Then that reveals the top hold down straps. Remove them and top can be popped. Next you remove the front shroud the drum rides on. then get the drum out. Did I mention you do not work from the back at all on this model? Do not try to fix it in the wash room. Take it ouitside and put it on the picnic table or a tailgate to repair it. You will need a phillips head screwdrivers pliers 1/4 and 5/16 nutdriver and snapring pliers.
Shopvac to clean it up and probbaly a new fuse and blower wheel.

Maytag Performa PYE2200AYW drum turns until I put clothes in it, then it slows and stops.


You have the belt on wrong. There is a side with numbers or writing on it and ribbed side like treads. The tread side should be facing down, making contact with the drum. If the other side is touching the drum then whenever clothes are put in the belt will slip causing the drum not to

Chirping noise


Probably bad drum rollers. Or they need cleaning and lubrication. They are under the drum on the back wall of the dryer.Remove the front panel to access the rollers.

Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes


Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

Check drive belts. If too loose or too worn it will not spin at proper speed.
