Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
The problem is with one of three pulleys. There are two "drum rollers" on which the dryer drum rests, and then there is a third pulley which keeps tension on the belt that connects the motor to the drum. Either of these can get squeaky when the grease dries out, or when they wear from prolonged use.To open this dryer, remove the front panel (either 4 screws inside the hinge mounts on both sides, or 2 screws along the bottom of the front panel) and check with a flashlight to find these three pulleys. With the dryer unplugged, jiggle each one... if it is loose from its axle, it needs replacing, otherwise, just lube all three pulleys by removing the retainer clip and wheel, greasing the steel axle with silicone (never use oil!), then replace the wheel and clip. You should enjoy blissful silence from there.
