Question about Dryers

Have a "finshing" noise even when drum stops a turn

Maytag dependable care dryer - 1997 or 1998. I have a noise when the drum turns but only when it reaches a certain spot. Also, it will do it when you manually spin the drum by hand when it is off. One thing I noticed is, looking in from the back plate, that when the motor and drum stop, the noise keeps going and seems to be coming from inside the front lint screen cover on the lower left side front of the drum. Could this be worn-out inside motor bearings or the vent blower bearings? Should I replace whole dryer or just motor or lint screen blower unit.?
Thanks,
Bob

I had a similar problem and found a screw had backed out on one of the turning paddles inside the drum but the screw was on the under side , and could reach it through the access door , just had to turn the drum by hand till the screw was in sight.

just turn the drum inside by the paddles and shake them to make sure they are tight , thats how i found my problem and noise

good luck hope this helps , wayne t

My Maytag Depenable Care Gas Dryer has become very squeaky when the barrell spins. i took off the front panel and sprayed WD-40 on the backsides with the Plastic wheels and it went away for about 10...


Probably best to grease the wheels (called drum support rollers) rather than use WD-40 because that strips away the lubrication. It will also pay to check the drum support glides under the front of the drum. Worst case you may have to replace the support rollers.

Rumbling noise in maytag gas dryer DG110 series 01


Unplug Dryer first: Page 3-11 of full service manual at link below will get front off. The most common solution for your problem is the blower wheel loose on the shaft. Hold drum and see if you can turn blower wheel (lower left plastic squirrel cage) separately. If you can turn the plastic wheel while you hold drum still, replace blower wheel.

ELECTRIC DRYER MODEL# PDET910AYW


When you turned the drum backwards you caused the belt to come off. Put the belt back on.
While you have it open to re-install the belt check the blower wheel very carefully for the noise. It is probably loose and needs replacing.

Dryer stops in the middle of cycle


The door latch has failed, that's why your dryer stops. When the door opens it stops the drum and turns off. Fix the latch.

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.
