Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer
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,
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
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.

I recently replaced the rear drum bearing on this dryer, and once you
find the part, the change is a snap. The dryer actually uses Whirlpool
parts, and the rear bearing is just a plastic bushing that the shaft of
the drum rides in. It is accessible behind a small cover on the rear of
the machine. Pop the top off the machine (so you will be able to support
the drum, to remove the old bushing), remove the five Robertson screws
holding the rear cover and bushing in place,remove c-clip at end of
shaft, remove old bushing. After applying some high quality lube (I
used a molybdenum based product), reverse assemble, and enjoy the now
The part # is 35001012, made by Whirlpool (Maytag/Samsung), FSP on the bag.
