The felt strip does not go all of the way around. If you remove the 4 screws around the door it will let you take the front panel off. There is another panel behind it. Once you remove all of the screws, you can take this off as well and there are a dozen opr so clips holding the front of the tub on. This will let you look all of the way around between the inner and outer tubs.

Felt belt found inside of drum

Hi - these are used to minimize the metal to metal contact of the drum & housing.

One will need to remove the top & front panels to gain access to remove the drum, afix felt to end in question and assemble the machine again.

Brownish streaking on clothes even after cleaning the gasket.

The dryer has felt strips on the front that the drum rubs on. When the felt wears out there is room for clothes to get between the drum and the felt which puts the burnt looking streak on them. Remove the front panel to access the front of drum and the felt guides.

Loud rumbling noise when spinning not the normal high pitched sound. Possibly could it be the bearings?

Yes it is very likely the rear drum bearing. unfortunately the rear bearing is not sold separately it comes with the rear tub half. this is both an extensive and expensive repair .Unless you have some kind of extended warranty you might want to use it as long as possible the replace the whole thing

Error code 0e

Hi, it is the pressure switch aka water level sensor. OE is overflow error. Pressure switch is located under top cover on front right hand side. It is round and has a rubber tube leading down to the drum and a electrical connection to the board. Paid maytag man to diagnose/install cost me about $150.

There is a recall on the circuit board for certain Maytag Neptune washers. See the link below:

Take care

The wholesale cost of the part is about $400+shipping. You'd pay more...
I'm in the business and mine did the same thing. When we couldn't turn the TV up loud enough anymore, I pitched it and bought a Duet!

Maytag super capacity washer #SAV 4655 AWW Makes a verry loud squeel in spin cycle only. Does not leak any water or oil.

This can be a symptom of drum bearing wear. A quick check for wear is to see if the inner drum moves up and down relative to the fixed outer drum. It should only move a minute amount. If it moves more than a milli metre or two, it is probably worn bearings. You can obtain bearing kits for most makes. If it is making unusual noises while washing too, check there is not a wire or similar object trapped half way into one of the drum holes. A high pitched whine is sometimes caused by the motor bearings (but most brush/commutator motors whine a bit anyway on higher speeds, it is normal). Oil sparingly so as not to contaminate the carbon brushes.
