We have a maytag neptune dryer md-6 and the dryer squeeks and squeels while drying close. Do I need to replace the belt or the drum wheels? Are all three?

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.

You will need to check the tub roller wheels. This is a common noise when the wheel bearings start to ware down. They are not expensive, and you should be able to do this yourself. Good Luck Friend.

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

Drum support rollers. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Squeeling noise


It could be just a dry belt and pulley. You could try the old squeeking car fan belt trick and rub soap on the belt. You can even buy sticks of anti-squeek from automobile outlets.
