Old Maytag dryer started making loud noises. Dryer was in house when I bought it. About 15 years old. Opened and cleaned out pounds of lint. Found drive belt frayed. Ended up replacing: Tumbler and Motor Belt, 2-Drum Support Rollers, Idler Pulley and Blower Wheel. Essentially rebuilt the rotational mechanism in the dryer. The noise making component appeared to be the blower wheel - the hold for the shaft was round and not "D" shaped - lots of wobble in the blower. Now it is quieter than ever and dries much faster! Easy to follow video directions. Thanks!
