SOURCE: Dryer makes a loud squeaking/squealing noise while drying.

If the dryer model number begins with 417, the drum is supported by a ball bearing in back, and a seal and glides up front. Often, the bearing will become very dry, either from years of use, or from excessive lint blowing up into the bearing. If the bearing isn't cracked or otherwise noticeably bad, you can usually solve the issue simply by lubing the bearing with a high temp grease. While the machine is apart...(a major pain in the butt), make sure to check the condition of the seal and glides on the front panel, and replace the belt if it looks at all cracked or frayed.
If this dryer is not a 417 and/or does not have a rear bearing, it's best to get a maintainance kit (belt, idler pulley and drum rollers) and install all the aforementioned parts, as they are the most likely source of screech. Also, check the motor by spinning the shaft manually with the belt off....if that is squeeking, it's motor
time.

SOURCE: Very loud metal on metal screeching noise maytag model LDE8414ACE

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Loud metal-metal "screeching" sounds will eminate from the front bearing glides, (click on link below), for a picture of the glides. Link provided by www.repairclinic.com, they provide repair parts, disassembly procedures and diagrams.
You may also want to inspect for foreign objects in the front and rear drum seals and in the blower.
Drum rollers may sometimes cause loud noises also.

SOURCE: dryer makes screeching noise..dries the clothes

at the top of the drum there is a felt pad with 3 white nylon glides attached to it. if this is worn, and it does wear, it will make a screeching noise like you described because it changes the postion of the drum and it will also appear like it is loose. you can purchase this part as a kit along with the glue to hold it on and it is not an expensive part. hope this helps.

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.

Maytag dryer makes loud squeeling noise when it gets hot. Drys clothes but makes such a loud squeeling noise. Have to let it cool down to continue to dry.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

A loud squeal is usually caused by either an idler pulley bearing. a drum roller bearing or a loose belt.

Since you did not include a model number I have to respond with generic across the board information. Idler pulleys, drum rollers and belts for Maytags can be found on this link:
(Just past half way down the page) http://www.apwapplianceparts.com/Laundry+Appliance+Parts/Dryer+Appliance+Parts+/Dryer+Drive+Belts+Idler+Pulleys+and+Support+Rollers/default.aspx

You can enter your model number on this page and find your parts: (Choose model number)
http://www.appliancepartspros.com

If you do repair it yourself.... do yourself a HUGE favor and either take a picture of the belt routing or draw a belt routing diagram BEFORE dis-assembly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My dryer (maytag atlantis) has started making a loud clunking noise with each revolution. its still drying fine but sounds terrible. any thoughts?


A loose belt will allow the drum to slip when clothes hit the paddles in the drum. It sometimes sounds like a pair of tennis shoes are in the dryer when it slips and is usually rythymic.

These machines also use drum rollers that can make a racket when they go bad.

Good luck.

The dryer makes a loud noise when running. It still works and drys. Its a loud screeching sound. Do you think the belt needs to be replaced?


Could be the one of the 4 drum rollers, Idler pulley or belt.
I usually replace them all at once for long term reliability.

Maytag sde3606ayw make loud screeching noise


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
