the maytag has a bearing made if a cloth material that is at the front of the drum. when this wears down drum is grating off the metal drum support, hence the grinding sound. the bearing is fairly straight forward to replace.

My dryer is making a loud grating sound like metal on metal,its at the front of the dryer,is it the felt round the drum i think it has come out??


sounds like a seal, it must be replaced, in some instances if you hear a grinding noise the drum and the bulkhead must be replaced if this is an older dryer and there is no warranty you might have to pay alot for a new drum and bulkhead not to mention the labor. most new drums come with the felt seal,

Maytag bravos dryer makes loud grating sound


UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
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.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't 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 will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Makes loud noises


Although there may not be any gas parts involve you should have gas technician work on the unit. Depending on the noise your hearing it could be a number of things, if its making a scraping noise it could be that your front drum glides are gone allowing the drum to ride on the frame of the door. glide part numbers are 306508. if the noise you hear sounds like a grating sound it could be that your blower wheel has something caught in it and is now rubbing on all of the fan blades on the blower.blower part number is 33002797. if you hear a loud banging noise you could have a rear bearing issue. both roller bearing part numbers are y303373.hope this helps

Thanks

Two things: I would like to disable the annoying buzzer that sounds which sounds when the drying cycle is over. I want to clean out the slot where the lint filter sits, but am afraid to pull very *******...


Hello Walky,
The vent cavity can be cleaned fairly easily without removing it by adding a section of flex tubing to your vacuum cleaner. Most hardware stores sell clear plastic tubing in various sizes so choose one that will fit inside the lint trap area ( normally ~ 1/2" or so and add that to your vac hose with duct tape or equivalent)... If you slash cut the end of it....you can better vacuum the grated surface inside that filter housing.

The buzzer module can be unhooked from inside the dryer. Try this website for location details
http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php Slide 3 Control Panel shows the wherabouts of the buzzer ( item 11 ) which you should be able to disable by removing or cutting the wire ( please do this with the power disconnected . Also , make sure that you cover any exposed wire ends with an electrical tape, wire nut or some insulator to prevent accidental shorts.

Hope this helps you..

Drum in dryer not turning but still heat


Sounds like you need a new dryer belt, call sears for new belt. Install the new belt around the drum and to the motor located near the bottom of the machine.
