Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

My Maytag Dependable Care dryer, model MDE9206AYW has begun sueaking very loudly when running. The noise sounds like it may be a rubbing-type of a noise, or possibly a belt. I have not tried to take anything apart yet, but believe I could correct the problem if I had a repair manual for the dryer. The dryer still works fine, but the noise gives me the impression that I should not use it the problem is corrected.

Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.Here is a link to the part in case you need it.

I have a Maytag Dependable Care Heavy Duty dryer and it makes an awful noise when it runs, also it isn't heating what should I do?


the knocking is either a belt that is going or one of the wheels is broken(they ride on three or four wheels). and those fixes are fairly inexpensive. but if it is also not heating, that can be inexpensive or not. maybe a new one, or fairly new via craigslist. how old is your dryer. over 10-12 years, maybe replace this one

Thumping/Screeching sound, MD:LDE8616ACE. Rollers? Idler Pulley?


Your description sounds like one or both of the rear drum supports (rollers) is bad. A quiet thumping is almost always present as the weld in the drum comes in contact with the drum supports. A binding support will squeal, and the thumping could be worse at that time. After running the dryer until the noises are present, once disassembled, you can tell if a support is bunding or rolling normally by spinning it by hand. The same goes for the idler pulley. Make sure power is disconnected from the unit befor attempting any repairs.

While the unit is disassembled for repair, make sure your your old cat is not inside.

I hit the start button on my maytag MDE9206AYW and it don't start


Sounds like the motor is going bad. If you keep going like that eventually you will hear a loud noise, and it won't even start.

Maytag dryer not heating up thus not drying clothes


This is usually a simple heating coil malfunction. The coil may have breaks in it causing it not to work. It could also have something to do with 1 of several heating sensors that may be broken, telling the dryer's heating coil that the dryer is too hot, in effect turning off the heating coil. If your dryer has a round lint filter in the rear of the drum, it was 1 of 2 models of Dependable care dryers produced in the 1970's. If this is the case, i supose it would be up to you whether you want to try and get it repaired or not. If you have one of the more recent models,,, the lint filter is directly behind the door, at the front of the drum. and in this case it would probably be a good idea to get it looked at it as Maytag is a relatively dependable brand.

one of 2 things can be wrong. Back bearing if bad will sound like a bird chirpping, front bearing glide will be more constant squeek. both need to be fixed by experienced tech.
