UNPLUG DRYER, 220v is not fun
You get in the back of the dryer, from the front.
maytag dryers have two screws in the curve of the bottom of the front panel. (Note:screws may be torx-secure screws, cut a slot in them and use a flat screwdriver or pick up a torx-secure #20 bit at a tool shop, star shape with a pin in it)
remove the screws and the front panel can be swung up from the bottom and unhooked.
unplug door switch wires
reach under drum, for belt tensioner, pull belt off tensioner. and motor pulley
lift drum up and slide out forward
under drum are 2 rubber tired rollers, check for free motion, replace both if either is seized
the drum has felt bushes on it
examine felts for wear, replace if worn.
ensure all felt and adhesive is scraped from drum before fitting new felts, if there is any left, it bumps/thumps and knocks every rotation (best adhesive is Hi temperature red silicone)
use 2-4 pairs locking pliers(visegrips) to install felt

  • put adhesive on drum edge
  • clip felt in place at one point with visegrip
  • pull felt around drum, clipping in place as you go
  • let sit in clamps till adhsive sets
reassemble drum in reverse order
maytag atlantis - 38d7d07.jpg while you got it apart is a good time to clear any lint from exhaust vents and squirrel cage fan,
felts last cost $30/pair rollers $9/pair
takes 45 minutes now to change felts, I do rollers while the adhesive sets, had a lot of practice, replace the belt, cost is minimal, it has been *****ed pulling the drum against the worn felts or rollers, and will break soon, dont want to open up again

Loud noise as the tumbler is drying


Front or rear? Rear is probably center bearing. Fornt is front tub wheel or glide worn out. If noise is in front remove front and inspect.

We've got a Maytag MDE6000AYQ dryer that we love. It started squeaking two loads ago. It would squeak off and on during the cycle. This next load seemed to squeak worse, so I'm worried to use it any...


The squeak is most likely from the drum support rollers or the drum bearing. If it's the rollers, they're fairly easy to replace and often a drop of lubricant will solve the problem. This is just one supplier of such parts:
