Check the rollers,the pulley and if it shakes as bad as it sounds the blower wheel is probably damaged

My 13 year old Maytag Dryer rumbles to a start when you turn it on and rumbles to a stop. Sounds like the belt is slipping to me. Should I contact a repairman to replace it?


I would check the drum rollers and glides first, the other cause may be the idler assembly which is next to the motor, it keeps tension on the belt. Since you will have it apart you can check the belt for cracks and wear, if it looks good then I would not replace it. eBay is a cheap place to find dryer parts, here is a website on the rollers/glide you can go to the virtual repairman and it will help. I think it is a good site to troubleshoot just about anything you may have problems with, Good Luck Tim.

Grinding Noise


Hi,

Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

Hope this helps.

God Bless.

Maytag gas Dryer is Noisy


If the noise is like a shaking of rattling , like coins being shaked , then it is an object trapped inside the drum.

If instead the noise is a loud grinding , that may get louder on high speed, then it is usually a bad drum bearing.

If dryer is not cooling, check that the noise is not coming from the ventilation fan.

Rollers and belt tensioner can also make noise.
