My Maytag Neptune dryer makes a horrible screeching sound when the drum turns. Could this be the part identified as the "tumbler bearing"?

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.

I have a Maytag Heavy Duty Quiet Series 200 Dryer, and when I turn the dryer on is makes a horrible screeching sound. Like metal grinding against metal. What do I do?


That's easy, first of all you must have the Dryer on flat floor I mean verticly right. And try not to put too many clothes to get dried.

- very loud squeaking sound


Hello JewettKann,

Typically, on the Maytag Neptune dryers, it is the felt gasket that is the cause and source of the noise you're hearing.

There is a felt gasket that runs all around the front and rear of the dryer drum and cabinet door edge (on the backside lip). As the dryer ages, this felt wears out and needs to be replaced to prevent the awful screeching sounds you'll experience, once the metal to metal contact becomes constant.

You can view the parts that need replacing at the following link (Item #17B on the drawing) Called a sound damper pad on some models.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=MDE4000AZW&productCategoryId=0151200&brandId=3048&brandDescription=MAYTAG&modelName=MAYTAG-LAUNDRY&diagramPageId=00004&componentDescription=DOOR&documentId=M0402169&blt=06


This was a fairly common problem with the Neptune line. You can see for yourself by simply turning the drum with your hand and feeling and listening for the rubbing/grinding noise, along the top of the door opening.
If you can get the complete model number off your dryer, you can select the exact line drawing and parts list at the link below to make sure you're looking at your exact model.

Loud screeching noise at times when in use!


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

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
