Question about Dryers
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.?
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
