Screeching dryer and odor

Used spackle knife to pop clips on top of dryer. Raised lid of dryer to expose belt. Next used nut driver to disassembly screws from front door and then base ( bag them. Labeled bag and marked inside of dryer with corresponding number to match hardware) disassembled dryer door latch switch and marked red + and white no marking. ( Middle connection not used) removed dryer clean out screen and then removed dryer face next removed dryer blower cover no hardware ( just lift upwards see side clips) opened up side of dryer to gain more access (spread apart manually) removed belt and marked where belt was on tumbler postion with permanent marker used 2 car hold down cords to hold drum in place with back of dryer next removed belt from idler (note to make a drawing so that you know how to wrap this around the idler otherwise the belt will appear to be too large. Remember to reconnect spring. Next step was to removed drum rollers. . . This required a retaining ring pliers cost about $15. I replaced the snap retaining rings. This was easy but requires that you pull the drum forward about 4 inches to position. Next replaced belt and reassembled. Project was a success and runs like new. . . . Saved me $129 service call plus $65 parts without maytag mark-up plus additional labor for the job $130. My cost $65 + $15 tool (retaining ring pliers) $80 versus $259 + ( $65 *50%)ark up on parts) $80 versus $356 -- thanks parts select for saving me $276 during the christmas holiday.

Squealing during operation

The dryer was squealing, so I looked videos on how to take the dryer apart. After I got it apart, I spun the roller wheels, the motor, and the idler pulley, and only the idler pulley gave an indication that it was sticking or not spinning appropriately, so I ordered the part and replaced it. And sure enough, it was the problem after all!

Screaching on start-up, then continuous after time

Idler was the noise source. Drum support rollers were failing also. I almost spent $500.00 on a new dryer, glad I replaced the parts instead. Sounds and works like new. Watch the video,its very helpful. Thanks Parts Select. You should advertise your services on TV or radio. I am glad I found you.

Terrible noisy dryer.

After the dryer was opened up I took off the belt and removed the drum. To get the Idler Lever off I used a wrench to get the back of the bolt and loosened it with the socket. Then I placed the spring somewhere I wouldn't loose it while I bolted the new idler lever down. The spring stretched from the bottom to the new leveler with a little effort.

Loud sharp noise when the dryer was spinning

I found a shrieking noise repair on this website, followed their instructions (winging it a bit) and was able to fix my dryer for the price of those parts - excellent!!! As the other instructions said, mark EVERY wire.
I have additional instructions - MARK EVERY SCREW you remove. I had 4 extras when I was finished and now I'm a bit worried about where they belong :)

Dryer made horrible screeching noise

I pried open the top of the dryer with a screwdriver. i took digital pictures (for reference)of 3 sets of wires needing to be unplugged during repair. I removed 6 nut screws to get to the repair. took the barrel out, replaced the pully wheel and belt paying attention to how they were originally. The pully was a little awkward to take off and put on, but not bad. My dryer purrs now. yahoooo!

Squalling noise from dryer

Video online was very instructive...only difference was I unmounted the motor mount plate from the bottom to get to the idler lever easier.

Had nicknamed dryer squeaky!!!

Parts arrived on time as usual. Disassembled dryer and put all parts on. A small pair of snap ring pliers for rremoving the shaft snap ring and wheel of idler woud be beneficial. I did it by removing the entire idler. Hardest part was getting nut back on idler bolt. Nut goes behind mounting bracket for motor and is blocked by dryer exhaust on one side and frame of dryer on other. Used long reach needle nost to hold nut until bolt started into nut.
Reassembled dryer and ran like brand new... no more squeaky!!
