Hi My Maytag Gas dryer Modle number MDG3758AWW is making a very loud noise after running a couple of minutes. It still drys clothes but the roaring noise is louder than a jet plane trying to take off. Anu...

Hi evelyn1954...

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if you have to.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer by removing two screws located on either side of the top of the dryer housing and unplug the door switch.
This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.Now is a good time to replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots they will make a thumping type of noise or if there is too much wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil, or a light lubricant like Vasoline.
Reassemble the dryer.
Plug back into your electrical receptical.
This should solve your noise problem.

The drum on my amanda dryer is making a noise as it go around.

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine, Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Whirlpool dryer froze and wont tumble just makes noise where try

Hi, This dryser only has 1 belt. When you chacked the belt, was the belt located in the middle of the drum?
This model has an idler pulley that is no longer being used. They have went back to the roller style idler which is easier on the belt.
Raise the top and then remove the 2 screws holding the front to the cabinet. Remove the front cabinet and locate the idler next to the motor pulley. Look at the belt while you have the front off and see if there is any bad spots in it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dryer belt broke on my dryer.

I use a putty knife to press against the spring clips to pop the top. Then I use a quarter inch nutdriver to remove the screws holding the front panel on. I remove the wires from the door switch and lift out the front panel. I remove the drum and put the dryer on a work bench or a tailgate. I inspect the blower wheel(most of the time they get loose). I get the ball of lint out of the front panel filter housing. I vacuum out the dryer with my shopvac. I oil the rollers and idler and inspect the drum slides for wear. I loop a new belt rib side down to the drum and set it back in the dryer. With my left hand I drop the belt under the motor pulley and raise up the idler looping the belt on it and let the tension hold the idler. I manually slowly turn the drum to make sure the belt is secure and not twisted. I place the front back on. Snap the top down and give her a try. Piece of cake.

Can't Put Belt On

You have to remove the front of the dryer to
access the drum. First unplug the dryer.There are screws at the bottom of the front to remove the lower section. Once you remove that you can get to the screws for the door section. The front of the drum rides on the inside of the front panel so when you remove the panel the drum will drop down. Try to keep the drum in place with something to hold it up. Remove the old belt and place the new belt around the drum. Slid the belt back to where the belt used to ride and then loop the belt around the motor and the tension wheel. Make sure the tension wheel is tightening the belt. Hold up the drum and put the front panel back on. You may need a helper to hold things while you do this. Rotate the drum by hand and make sure it moves smoothly. Plug it back in and give it a try. I hope this helps. Any questions feel free to ask. Please rate me so I know if I'm Helping. Thanks.

Hi there I am trying to replace a belt on my old dryer how hard is it

If you have a NVL333EY which you posted under, I'd rate the repair a 4 on a scale of 1 - 10 in difficulty. That Hotpoint model is actually manufactured by Frigidaire / Electrolux and sold through GE as a Hotpoint. (Hey, it's a global economy, right?)
Disconnect power to the dryer. Use a putty knife to push in the seem of the front panel with the dryer top to release the dryer top, allowing it to swing back. You may be able to use a phillips to remove the screws holding the front panel, but a #2 square drive works much better. Slip new
134503600 belt around drum from front. Put front panel back on. Remove 4 screws (again the #2 square drive works best) holding the back access panel at lower left back side to allow you to finish belt installation. Belt grooves touch the drum. The worst part is keeping the spring from falling off when you put the belt tensioning wheel on. After you have the belt installed, give the drum a turn by hand to make sure everything is OK before you close up the top and reconnect power.

How do you put the belt on a 1996 dryer belt? The pulley had fallen to the bottom of the dryer and now we are unsure of where it is originally supposed to be.

Hi 815carey,
That is a hard thing to describe with out a diagram but I will try my best for you. First thing would be to put the belt around the motor. then take the idler pulley and pull it back and put it under both parts of the belt. This will supply the tension you need to keep the belt tight. If you are having trouble getting the the pulley inplace I would need to know the brand of dryer. In most cases if it fell off it is a whirlpool or a whirlpool made Kenmore. It that case the idler will mount directly underneath the shaft of the dryer just slightly to the left of the pulley on the motor. I really hope this helped you. mca0824
