Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Change belt I have a 10 year old Maytag MDE6000AYE clothes dryer. The belt is making a lot of noise. I want to chage the belt. I am having trouble getting the top off the dryer in order to get to the belt area. Under the electrical control area are 2 metal tabs that act as hinges. There is some kind of locking mechanism on the front portion of the top that I am unable to see. There must be some kind of release mechanism there. Can you help?

I have a Maytag Dependable Care Heavy Duty dryer and it makes an awful noise when it runs, also it isn't heating what should I do?


the knocking is either a belt that is going or one of the wheels is broken(they ride on three or four wheels). and those fixes are fairly inexpensive. but if it is also not heating, that can be inexpensive or not. maybe a new one, or fairly new via craigslist. how old is your dryer. over 10-12 years, maybe replace this one

My dryer is making a bumping noise, almost ike something is rubbing, It sounds like tennis shoes are being dried. If I put mt head near the bird cage I can hear a little noise. If I grab the tub I can move...


Without a model number all I can do is pass you a generic response. There are 2 sizes of repair kits that include drum rollers (Flat spots on yours) a belt and a drum felt. 27 inch and 29 inch. Having said that... the drum rollers are what are causing your thumping noise. PN: 303373
I would also replace the belt: 31531589 the drum glides 306508 and the drum seals Multi-listing here: http://www.repairclinic.com/Maytag-Dryer-Gasket-Or-Seal-Parts?z=50 also inspect the idler pulley and bearing. Not sure how old your dryer is but by doing the above you should get more than 5 years good service out of your dryer. It is worth the time effort and expense to repair it.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

My Maytag dryer is 14 years old. Now it makes a


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.
Yes, replacing the drum rollers is fairly cheap especially if you do it yourself, saves you the price of a new dryer for a few more years maybe.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps
