Hello; At the very front of the drum on your machine there is often a round felt type seal. This seal wears down over a period of time and causes a metal to metal contact. I believe this is what you are hearing. Depending on your mechanical expertise you may be able to replace this your self.

Either one of the rollers or the idler pulley is causing the squeak. Most common to go bad in a maytag dryer is the roller on the right, it sits just above the heating element. You need to take the drum out and spin each of the rollers and the idler pulley to determine which one is the problem, and replace it. good luck. Shane

Dryer is about 5 years old. Has begun to squeak loudly when clothes begin to spin


Are you comfortable taking the dyer apart? There are just a few simple screws to remove. It sounds like a bad blower wheel. If you follow the link you should be able to trouble shoot the issue.

No heat in the dryer. It is Maytag Neptune gas dryer about 9 years old. The drum rotates just fine but heat stopped a couple of days ago.


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

My dryer squeaks model #mde3600ayw


Many reasons for this to happen. First the seal surrounding the drum to the front panel maybe dirty causing this squeak
In the other hand most squeaks are caused by the dried up bearing inside the roller for the belt tensioner. If so replace the belt and tensioner pulley for the belt gets stretched by a worn pulley and will break eventually too
