Appliance: Maytag Dryer-Ele MDE6000AYW
My Repair & Advice
When my 14 year old Maytag dryer started a metallic squealing I figured I would just buy another $500 dryer. My brother, the mechanical engineer, suggested first trying to fix it myself with parts from Appliance Parts Pro. I was skeptical but figured I'd give it a shot. I replaced the drum wheels, the tumbler bearing kit, the tension pulley, and belt. By following the clear, step by step online videos, Appliance Part Pros made this repair a snap. Cheaper pricing than competition, lightning fast shipping and now I have a dryer running quiet again - hopefully for another 14 years.
