Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
My dryer - not even 2 years old - is running louder than it normally does. Any suggestions would be great. I clean the filter with each load; not sure what else what I should do. I have treated it with kid gloves and I am the only one who uses it.
It sounds like your motor may be going out (search for motor replacement solution here).
Hopefully it is just a problem with grit in the system, or perhaps the felt gaskets have worked themselves loose. Either way, to clean out grit and inspect the system you'll need to access the interior and remove the drum. Here's how:
crosstip medium screwdriver
1/4 inch socket
5/15 inch socket
a. Remove the door and opposite side door plugs (crosstip screws)
b. Remove the front panel - this exposes sheet metal bolts (5/16 inch) some with crosstip on left and right of unit. Set panel aside (right side) WITHOUT unplugging wires
c. Unscrew all the exposed bolts.
d. Top bolts left and right secure the unpainted metal hooks which secures the top of dryer. Unscrew these bolts and wiggle the metal retainer hooks off. Lift top and support to create 6 inch gap in the front (top unit hinges in back and has electrical connections - do NOT disconnect wires)
e. Release belt from pulley by reaching left and under drum (this is out of sight)
f. gently lift out drum and belt and set aside
