IF IT IS A LOUD DEEP HUM WHEN YOU FIRST TURN IT ON AND GOES AWAY AFTER IT IS RUNNING, THE MOTOR BEARINGS ARE WEARING OUT AND WILL FAIL IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
IF IT IS CONSTANT SQUEALING NOISE, THE IDLER PULLEY OR THE DRUM SUPPORT ROLLERS NEED REPLACED.

I have a Neptune electric dryer model MDE4000ayw. The clothes keep getting stuck around the barrel as the dryer is operating. What is the problem? It also makes a very loud noise as it operates.


You need to disconnect the dryer from power source, open the unit, it sound like the drum has holes on it that stucked your clothes when turning. this problem common to all maytag dryers. The front support glide had chop up . You might likely change the drum or tumbler.

Comment if the solution solve your problem

Neptune MAH5500 Neptune has progressively gotten louder on spin. Very loud noise sound like bearing going. Continues to get worse. Can it be fixed or too expensive to justify?


Hi.

If you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise is louder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, Check if the drum has excessive play.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

To get a quote on repair call Maytag at the number listed on the owner manual, the machine may still be worth repairing.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

Hi I have a Maytag MDE4000AYW dryer. It is making a squeeking sound off and on when it runs. I took the front off and kinda lifted the drum up and down and it made it without the belt actually turning,...


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
You did the right thing by removing the front of the machine, that is how you check the drum rollers, idler arm with pulley and the motor.
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.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

It is a mod MDE4000AYW. How do I put the belt back on?


Hi welcome to Fixya

You must pop off the top of the dryer then remove the front after the front is off you can remove drum .
The belt goes around the drum and the motor pully and under the tentioner wheel after you get belt on replace front and top.

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG FROM POWER THIS IS 220volts AND CAN HURT YOU BAD

Thank You For Useing Fixya

Neptune dryer model 4000, <10 y.o., hums, but won't start.


I wouldn't know about the warranty, but the dryer motor may need only a start relay, which is usually attached to the motor. Usually, this is a centrifugal device. By that I mean the contacts on the relay are normally closed to give the motor extra starting capacity when you first turn it on. The contacts open after the motor get up to full speed.

Changing the drum rollers on a Maytag MDE4000AYW Neptune Dryer..


The instructions above are perfect for most Maytag Dryers, but the Neptune MDE4000AYW is built differently from most. To open it, undo the two screws that run through the door hinges, and remove the door, then undo the two other screws that are on the opposite side of the doorway. With these four screws out, you can lift the front panel UP and out. Make sure you unplug the dryer first :-)

Change rollers on a Maytag Neptune Dryer


You have to work from the front. Pull the top then the front then you will be able to see everything. Pretty self explanatory.
