Our maytag neptune dryer is squeaking. Can u please tell me the part needed? thanks


Hello,

the most common problem on this unit is the rollers, one sits above the heater and the bearing dries out. I provided you with two links one where you can purchase the drum rollers you need two, the other link explains how to access the dryer to repair it.

My maytag atlantis dryer is making a loud squeaking noise. sounds like metal on metal. possibly a bad bearing? any ideas...


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the
idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

We've got a Maytag MDE6000AYQ dryer that we love. It started squeaking two loads ago. It would squeak off and on during the cycle. This next load seemed to squeak worse, so I'm worried to use it any...


The squeak is most likely from the drum support rollers or the drum bearing. If it's the rollers, they're fairly easy to replace and often a drop of lubricant will solve the problem. This is just one supplier of such parts:

Makes a loud squeaking noise when drum is turning


The felt on the front of the drum is probably worn out or the bearing on the rear of the drum is getting bad.

My Maytag dryer (model # MDE4806AYW) makes a grinding sound all of the sudden. Sounds like the cylinder drum is scraping on something. The dryer is only a couple of years old. What do you think needs to be...


Could be your front glides on your drum housing. They are just Teflon pads that the front of the drum rides on. If they wear down you will get a metal on metal rubbing. The part number is 40116501. The other possibility could be your rear rollers going bad but they usually will make almost a squeak usually. They are what support the rear end of the drum.
Hope this helps _MJ_

When the dryer is running it is really noisey. We should have returned it but didn't


Sounds like something is caught between the drum and dryer (inside) or the drum bearings are going bad. Normally sounds like a squeaking then get to a grinding noise (not good)

Dryer noise


A drum support wheel bearing could need lubrication or be replaced.  Also some drum support wheels have a rubber coating that wears off causing misalignment and noise.  Possibly drum gasket (sometimes felt material) where drum meets rear panel is worn allowing metal-to-metal contact--should be replaced.
