I would replace the belt usually over time the belt streaches due to the weight of the clothes. the screaching ou are hearing is probably the belt going aound the drum instead of turning the drum.

My dryer will run and dry clothes but as soon as the drum starts to turn it has a constant squeeling noise ( not a squeek like the wheels would cause) what is my problem and how can I fix it?


some dryers has a center bearing on the rear of the drum, once this bearing dries out it will make noise along as the drum turns.

The idler bearing that keeps tension on the belt is going out due to heat leaching the grease out of it. Have it replaced.

Dryer is squeaking i can move it around and it stops, why


the front drum seal is dried up and so can the belt around the drum. Check the bearing on the tensioner also for squeeks

Maytag Neptune Dryer -5 years old squeeks Now it wont start.


There are four small plastic guide wheels that surround the drum in order to keep it aligned. These will wear after a period of time. The wheels have no bearings, they just ride on a metal shaft. You may either try lubricating the rollers or replacing them. Thank you, Dana

I need the diagram for the belt on a Maytag MD-6 Neptune Dryer. I just need to get the belt back on the tensioner.


Go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link. On the following page, look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section. Scroll down to Maytag (diagram E). I hope this helps you.
