Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

Yes, Possibly a belt needs to be changed!
Do not put off the service call for delay may cause more severe problems if it is not a belt. ANY TIME YOU HEAR GRINDING SOUNDS LOOKOUT! A belt is usually only a squealing noise!

A good company to use that's found nation wide.

How much is a used Maytag dryer model #:MDE4000AYW. Serial #:28623615YH


Ashley,
That is a 15 year old dryer and I would not pay or sell for more that $100 for it. Possibly even less depending on how clean it looks.

Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise


The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

Maytag mde4000ayw won't start. moisture monitor


This is either your start switch or your motor that is bad. I would suggest you begin with the start switch. We love Maytag appliances and we also love the moisture monitor on this model of dryer.

Just contact us at:

http://www.fixya.com/repair/d499389-accurate_appliance_repair_service and we will get the correct switch out to you asap.
We look forward to working with you and hope to get you back to drying right away.
Happy Holidays to you!

Hi I have a Maytag MDE4000AYW dryer. It is making a squeeking sound off and on when it runs. I took the front off and kinda lifted the drum up and down and it made it without the belt actually turning,...


Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication.
You did the right thing by removing the front of the machine, that is how you check the drum rollers, idler arm with pulley and the motor.
Unplug the dryer, remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve you noise problem.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Changing the drum rollers on a Maytag MDE4000AYW Neptune Dryer..


The instructions above are perfect for most Maytag Dryers, but the Neptune MDE4000AYW is built differently from most. To open it, undo the two screws that run through the door hinges, and remove the door, then undo the two other screws that are on the opposite side of the doorway. With these four screws out, you can lift the front panel UP and out. Make sure you unplug the dryer first :-)

Change rollers on a Maytag Neptune Dryer


You have to work from the front. Pull the top then the front then you will be able to see everything. Pretty self explanatory.
