I Have a MDET336AYW Maytag electric dryer. It tumbles and gets hot but makes an awful screech like a bearing or something it going out of it. Can you help me get it a part and find the problem?

Part 2 and 3 on this diagram are the glides and felt pad which are used to support the front of the drum and when worn out you will have metal to metal rubbing.

Part 17 is the drum support roller for the rear of the drum. You have two of them.

You'll have to determine where the noise is coming from to know which is the problem. Using the diagram for the cabinet you can remove the front to access other parts.

Neptune dryer makes noise

Check the blower to make sure it is properly secured on the motor shaft. Also check all of the bearings: motor, tensioner pulley and drum support rollers or drum bearings. You may have to disengage the belt to check the motor and tensioner.

My dryer is not getting hot. The clothes tumble, but do not get dry because the dryer is not getting hot. Could it be the thermostat or something else?

First, check the venting to make sure it isn't stopped up with lint. This is the most typical case. Also, which you probably already have done, make sure the lint screen is clean. You may have to disconnect the flexible hose on the back of the dryer to clean your vent.
