There is a clicking sound coming from back when running.
Answer Hello Bill,
The clicking sound would come from either the worn felt 314820 or bad rollers 12001541.
My maytag dryer is making a constant low-rumbling sound when it runs. What parts would I need to fix this? Thanks in advance.
Answer Brian, Once you remove the front panel and front bulkhead, Check the blower wheel Y303836, make sure it is "tight" on the motor shaft, there should be no "wiggle room". If the wheel is OK, remove the drum and check the rear rollers and shafts 12001541,6-3129480.
My dryer is making a loud intermittent squeaking noise. I've replaced the front drum bushings. What else could it be?
Answer Hello Ted,
You need to check the drum rollers and the idler pulley. These and the front drum bushings are all there is in there that could produce the noise unless a bushing is failing in the motor assembly.
Does the drum wheel support have a nut that screws on? I didn't see it in the picture for model# LDE312. Thanks.
Answer Hello Max,
The back of the drum roller shaft has a nut 33001443, but the drum roller is held onto the shaft with a retaining ring, (snap ring) 9703438.
The drier squeaks while operating. I think I need to replace the 2 sets of rollers. While it is apart, should I consider replacing anything else e.g belt or idler pulley?
Answer Hello John, there are numerous parts that would cause noise while the dryer is tumbling. Depending on what type of noise, it can be hard to tell without getting in there to see what is wrong. Things to check are the drum support rollers 12001541, the bearing glides 306508, and the drum seals 33001807. There are usually two of each of these parts and it's recommended that you change both at the same time. Also, you should check the idler pulley 6-3700340 and belt 33002535. Hope this helps!
