The most common cause of a squeal is the drum roller, of which there are 2. It is usually a good idea to replace both rollers, roller shafts and drum belt at the same time, as they have a tendency to wear at the same rate. You must also use the proper lubricant on the roller shafts, (Syl-Glide), or you will have a recurrence of the squeal.

If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers 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.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

your clothes are getting caught between the drum and the rim due to bearings out of the wheel guides. These guides are what the drum rests on when it is turning. Most dryers you can access these guides by taking the front off the dryer. Not a big expense just a little difficult to get to .

This is a pretty simple dryer. Unplug it and pop the top then remove the front. The heater and limits are all mounted on the lower left hand side on the heating element.

While you is in there do a good cleanup and oil the rollers and idler. Use zoomspout oil.
Replace the belt if she looks worn out.

My Maytag Performa Dryer model PDET920AYW will heat but drum will not turn. Belt is not broken. Can you help?


It is possible that the motor start/run capacitor has failed, rendering the motor unable to get going. The capacitor will look something like this

Maytag gas dryer about 10 years old leaving black smudge marks on clothing. The wheel was hanging up on the dryer drum. Could there be other causes for the smudge marks?

I have a maytag performa dryer wont heat up sometimes


Hello there:
If there is no heat or heat sometimes please try these solutions
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.
