Appliance: Maytag Dryer-Gas MDG5500AWW My Repair & Advice

We replaced the drum support rollers and then put it all back together. Took us a few hours. The install was fairly easy, the putting it back together was more difficult. Turned it on and the noise wasn't fixed. Got back on line and ordered a new belt and the belt tension pulley. Took it all apart again, replaced those parts and put it all back together...this time less than an hour. Plugged it in and it works quietly. The you tube videos were extremely helpful. I just wish I would have ordered all the parts the first time. They would have eventually needed to be replaced, better to do it all at once while you have it opened up, not to mention save on some shipping costs.
