Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

Open Question

What is the ordinary life span of a dryer? My Maytag dryer is about 10 years old and has begun to squeak loudly. Is this a fire hazard? Should dryer be replaced or will a repair do the trick?

SOURCE: 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.

Either one of the rollers or the idler pulley is causing the squeak. Most common to go bad in a maytag dryer is the roller on the right, it sits just above the heating element. You need to take the drum out and spin each of the rollers and the idler pulley to determine which one is the problem, and replace it. good luck. Shane

SOURCE: Dryer is about 5 years old. Has begun to squeak

Are you comfortable taking the dyer apart? There are just a few simple screws to remove. It sounds like a bad blower wheel. If you follow the link you should be able to trouble shoot the issue.

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.
