Hi. My Neptune dryer was not sounding as I remembered it. A higher pitch than usual while it was drying clothes. Then I noticed it was reluctant to start when pushing the "start" button, with...


burning smell is because the drum is not rolling and the motor is trying to turn, hopefully it did not damage the motor: more then likely it the drum rollers/glides, might want to check the idler arm here is a website that will help. depending on fast you need your dryer a good and cheap place to buy parts is on eBay, of course they can be purchased locally, Good Luck Tim:

Dryer won't heat up! It tumbles fine, but no heat! My Maytag dryer is only two or three years old!


This problem is normally caused by a faulty thermostat and or heating element. Test and replace if needed

Dryer makes a whining noise when drying


The belt is not the problem but more likely the drum rollers or drum bearing will need to be replaced.

Maytag performa dryer doesn't fully heat


A couple of suggestions. STOP, be sure the gas it turned off before disconnecting the line. Move it to an open area and check all venting. A good cleaning makes a huge difference. I believe your problem to be the heating coil is on it's way out, "works sometime". Write down the Make, Model, Seriel Number & Year of MFG...someone may ask for it..Check Your local appliance store for price & availablity Easy to replace on most model dryers.
When reattaching the gas line, be safe not to overtighten the coupler. A safe test for leaks is NOT a match... a drop or two of dishsoap around the fittings will bubble if it is not sealed. Good Luck

High pitch squeal


IT IS MORE THAN LIKELY A STUCK DRUM ROLLER OR IDLER PULLEY. I HAVE SEEN IN WORST CASE SCENARIOS WHERE IT HAS BEEN THE MOTOR ITSELF WHEN SUBJUCTED TO LOTS OF LINT AND DUST FROM PLUGGED VENTING. I WOULD CHECK THE FIRST TWO AS THEY ARE THE MOST COMMON. DO NOT OIL THEM.

Maytag SE1000 Dryer - high pitch buzz, then total non-start


Often, after a power surge that exceeds the parameters of surge suppression devices on the circuit board, the unit will do this. You will more than likely have a failed control board now and will need to replace it.

Samsung SlimFit 30" high pitch whining noise


I have had the same high pitch tone problem for several months after about 20 minutes of use. It is so bad it's rendered the TV almost unwatchable. I contacted a repair place from Samsung's website. I was told that is likely the flyback transformer. I don't know what it is, but it sounds cool like a flux capacitator. I was told it would be about $100 to fix. However, I have had very little luck getting the repair shop to order the part and do the work.
