Question about Maytag MDG6400 Atlantis Gas Dryer
I’m an Owner like you I own the FAV6800AW and have helped many folks on this and other forums with this issue.
You are experiencing a classic malfunction of the One-Way Roller clutch bearings in the Clutch Pulley assembly. It sounds like you are in the early stages of the issue. I have put together a step by step maintenance process to clean up and re-lube the One-Way Roller clutches in the Clutch Pulley assembly see this post Clutch Fix Post for what’s involved. Look on the right top back of your Console. If you can give me the first two numbers of your serial number i.e. 10, 11,12, tru 17. That will let me know if your machine will use an Upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing ring. Mechanical skill sets to perform Clutch maintenance or replacement are basic, anyone can do this it’s just a tight work area. Your option is to DIY or call in a repair service. I would ballpark the repair cost at around $300 if they know what is wrong and how to fix. DIY the fix it and you may need a a can of WD-40 and Slick 59 One Lube cost around $10 if the One-Way Roller just need to be cleaned up and re-lubed. If the Clutch pulley needs to be replaced I will show you a site where you can purchase for around $60 delivered to the house.
See this most recent post of a forum member who is back in service with my process.

This sounds like the transportation support rods have not been removed. A new machine will have two or more steel rods supporting the drum to prevent damage during transportation. These rods MUST be removed before the machine is used, otherwise the dampers that prevent excessive vibration will not be effective.
The user manual should provide instruictions for removal of the rods. They are normally accessed from the rear of the machine and usually will be labelled so that it is clear how to remove them. They pass througn the chassis of the machine and should be unscrewd and pulled out from the rear.
