Recently my maytag dryer 2000 series ,the outlet screen cover broke in half during use. I collected the broken parts. I continued 2 use my dryer 4 serveral more loads. I now hear strange noise while in use. I order the outlet screen cover.
There is a possibility that something has gotten down into the blower because the outlet screen cover not being in place. You will want to unplug the unit and take the front panel off and the blower housing cover off to check for debris in the blower wheel.
