My maytag neptune dryer mdg5500aww is making a screeching sound. It is drying the clothes but it is getting louder by the day. What part needs to be replaced?


There are 2 wheels in the rear that the drum rotates on - one could be binding. The tensioner has a wheel, check it for rotation. Belt slipping? Check motor for operation - check that plastic blower isn't rubbing in its box. Dryers are easy to disassemble - check YouTube for procedure.

Maytag Legacy series dryer making loud noise. Sounds like something flapping.


A common problem on these dryers is the blower wheel itself will wobble out and make noises. Pop the top with a putty knife then remove the front panel. Check the blower housing for looseness.or something in it. I worked on a monkey wards dryer with a bad blower wheel and made crappy movie on my phone:

I have a Maytag Atlantis Dryer Model MDE6400AYW - it is making a loud screeching noise which seems to be coming from the rear of the dryer. I have unplugged it and removed all the lint from every possible...


If you remove the screws from the lint trap shute, unscrew the 2 screws on the back side of the control panel, on the outer back, and take a flathead screwdrivew or putty knife to the front corners of the lid, you can pop the tabs and lift the top to remove the front of the dryer, to access the drum and motor.

Loud screeching noise at times when in use!


Normally loud screeching noises come from the drum rollers being dry.
They need lubricant, or replacement

Very loud metal on metal screeching noise maytag model LDE8414ACE


Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Loud metal-metal "screeching" sounds will eminate from the front bearing glides, (click on link below), for a picture of the glides. Link provided by www.repairclinic.com, they provide repair parts, disassembly procedures and diagrams.
You may also want to inspect for foreign objects in the front and rear drum seals and in the blower.
Drum rollers may sometimes cause loud noises also.

Maytag sde3606ayw make loud screeching noise


You Need to replace the drum Rollers. They cost around 10.00 Each online, 20.00 Each at your Dealer. Please Dont try to Put Oil on The Roller Shaft. It will come off and make its Way To Your Clothing. Martin Appliance Sells Specific Oil for the shaft for around 8.00. Thanks Sean
