Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise


The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

High pitch squeal-metal on metal contact


A lot of dryers have plastic or felt slides on the drum. This is to reduce friction as it rotates. They are probably worn off.

My Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer makes a loud noise when it is running. It works fine except for the noise. I have had the dryer about 5 yrs and this noise just started several days ago.


is it a high pitch noise. Like a noise that sounds similar to a old freddy cruger movie when the little girl on the tricycle passing by. If it sounds like that, then maybe you idler pully needs to be oiled..the idler pully is what keeps tension on the belt and lets the belt rotate smoothly. just like a pully. That maybe needs to be oiled..try doing that and see that works.

Loud squeaky noise when dryer starts, noise stops after several minutes


I would replace the belt that turns the drum. It is probably wearing out and that is causing your noise.

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine


1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.

Maytag electic dryer noise


First, pop up the top of the dryer -- use a large slotted screwdriver under each corner of the top. There will be screws holding the front of the dryer -- take these out and take the front off. The squealing is coming from roller bushings which need lubricating. Apply machine oil to all the axles/bushings -- this most likely will stop the squealing -- and don't forget to unplug it first.
