Question and Answers

Q:

Why does my Maytag model MDE4658AYW squeak and squeal at the start of the cycle?

A:

The most likely cause of this problem is the idler pulley or the drum rollers.

The drum also turns on a felt seal and this can also be the source of the squeal and squeak.

If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself abilities there are a couple of checks you can make to determine the source of the squeal and squeaks.

You can raise the top and remove the front panel from the dryer. The dryer can still run with the front panel off and this might help to localize the sound.

The first image below shows how to raise the top and remove the front panel. With the front panel off you can run the dryer and see if the location of the squeals and squeaks can be located.

The image also shows how to remove the tumbler and drum to access the rollers and glides and idler pulley.

You can read the instruction first and see if this is a repair you'd be comfortable and confident in doing.

I hope this information helps to resolve this problem for you. If you have any other questions then submit another question with any additional details for further assistance with this problem.

Q:

How Do I Open My Maytag Ensignia MDE4658AYW Electric Dryer

A:

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. The images below will provide the disassembly instructions for this unit. From the description you give most likely the drum rollers and/or glides have worn down and the drum is turning on metal causing the grinding noise. It is a problem that should be dealt with quickly. The metal on metal can wear the bulkhead down and that's much more expensive than a roller, glide or seal. This is something a technician should check and repair but if you're confident in your do-it-yourself abilities. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, please click on this link to schedule service: Sears Home Services. Click on "Get Started" and follow the directions, click on the red "NEXT" button to continue. I hope this helps. Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help. Thank you for using Manage My Life.com.
