You could save yourself a lot of money it this soultion works out for you.


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.
Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical consol with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
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.

Could be the bearings going, other possibilities could be that the drum is slightly misaligned and scraping against the housing, although that's not very likely, or a bad belt.

Although sometimes it's some obscure thing, I could be compleatly wrong.

drum rollers/glides, may be that the motor needs to be oiled, in which case you will need to unplug dryer and drill a hole in the casing not to deep just to where it goes through the casing, then moisten the cotton fabric. Hope this helps Tim:

Maytag Dryer, 25 year old dryer has a loud squeak


Hello.

The squeaking is coming from the rollers that the drum rides on. If you take the model number to a local appliance service store they will have the parts and be able to direct you on replacing them.

Extremely loud noise during spin cycle of my Neptune dryer--just started happening in the last month. The dryer is probably 7-8 years old, so it's not the newer Neptune model.

You can generally access the unit from the rear panel. Try and lube the joints around the pully for the belt and any other moving parts. Hopefully you won't have to replace any parts. Good luck

Need to know how to remove the motor on a Series 80 elec dryer.


The motor should be removable from the back and will require removal of the back panel. The bearings on these motors are brass "bushing" type, not ball bearing. You may have some success oiling them with a straight weight oil like 30w, but it may not last too long. Once the bushings start to go, it's usually time to replace the motor. You should be able to get another motor for the unit from Sears Parts Direct. I applaud your efforts!
