When dryer rotates, i hear a squeal or screech. what is wrong? Also, how old is this dryer, as I am not original ower?

drum rollers/glides, and check the idler pulley:

Don't know how old the dryer is, but cost versus price so buying a part is usually cheaper then replacing a machine..Tim

Dryer is a gas dryer, when rotating it squeals as if it needs oiling.

There are several parts involved with the drums rotation and some are customer servicable, if you are handy give it a try, if you are bothered by working around gas then give the job to an appliance repair person.

My maytag dryer has a loud squeal. I replaced the belt, but the squeal persists

Check to see if the belt has landed in the groove instead of on the outside of the drum. One might assume that the groove is there for the belt, but inspection of the drum will show previous belt location about an inch beside it. To fix, rotate the drum counter clockwise while pulling the belt away from the groove on the bottom of the drum. Once it has rotated a complete revolution, it should be in alignment and the noise should disappear.

Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise

The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

My dryer is squealing like crazy when rotating.. It's level and belts attached correctly. Everything seems to be rotating fine.

Sounds like the drum support rollers. They wear out after several years of operation.

See this link, and look at the parts under the schematic area labeled "Tumbler" , part description #24. Also check out the Motor Drive section.

High pitch squeal-metal on metal contact

A lot of dryers have plastic or felt slides on the drum. This is to reduce friction as it rotates. They are probably worn off.
