Check for loose 'tumblers' inside the drum. I have heard of some cases of these coming loose and causing knocking in the drum.

Comercial maytag dryer will not shut off. tried replacing timer. heats up but will not shut offf


Hello,

When a dryer heats but the timer does not advance especially on the auto. dry setting (not timed dry) the problem is usually always a airflow problem. What needs to be checked is for lint build up in the blower housing, a blocked or restricted. Also on Maytag dryers a problem sometimes is that the blower wheel drive hub where it connects to the motor is stripped so the blower wheel cant move air,typically if that is the case a rumbling will be heard when dryer starts and once again when the dryer stops a rumblimng noise will be heard.

I have a stackable washer/dryer gas maytag. Purchased around 17 years ago. The dryer is not drying clothes. Gas is powered fine and it is heating up. The cycle seems shorter than normal


Hello,
The problem with it not drying is most likely going to be a worn out blower wheel thats slipping and not moving the warm air through the clothes to dry them properly. Always a pretty good sign the blower is slipping is,if you hear a rumble noise from the dryer at start up and also that same rumbling noise when the power stops. So if you hear it at start up...wait 30 seconds and open the door and listen for the rumble noise as drum stops. also you can check where the vent exits the house and see if their is air flow when the dryer is running.

Dryer makes rumbling noise intermittently


It sounds like a faulty roller under the drum. Need to pop the top of the dryer, then remove the front -- you'll probably easily spot the faulty part.

Maytag LDE8414RCM, dryer knocks and rumbles while running. Still heats and dries clothes for the moment, but the knocking and rumbling is getting worse. Thanks


That rumbling noise may be due to the fan impeller being loose on its shaft, or because of a worn rear support roller. If the machine is still drying, it may be taking longer than usual but you haven't noticed. This is a good sign it's the fan. There are a number of sites with good detailed procedures for getting at and replacing parts, as well as selling the parts you need (of course they would!). One of them is here:

If this solution gets you on the way to quiet drying, please take a moment to rate it. Thanks for asking here!

Electric dryer makes a rumbling when tumbler is turning.


Check the drum bearing, a load noise, and often spinning problems are symptoms of a bad drum bearing.The bearing is at the base of the drum and accessing it is not easy.

You can find diagrams and replacement parts entering model number here.
