    Dryer makes screeching noise when started, after minute or two becomes quiet and operates as expected. What is problem with drum and is it fixable?
    For model number MDE4000AYW
    Hello Thomas and thank you for writing. Of course, this can be fixed. It certainly sounds like it could be a faulty drum support PS1570070 and/or a faulty roller shaft PS11743031, you should check for signs of damage, and replace if necessary. You should also check your belt PS11741110 to make sure it did not become loose or defective. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime if you require further assistance.

      noisy rollers, broken latch
      first, I unplug the power supply of the dryer then I removed the two screws at the bottom of the dryer then pulled out the front part of the dryer,unplugged the blue & yellow wire for the on/off switch for the door,at the back of the dryer I unscrew the pannel for the belt,disconect the belt,and I unscrew the four screws on both side of the front pannel to remove the front cover of the drum. Once I removed the front cover of the drum I can now remove the drum itself to access the drum support roller. I unscrew the rollers then replace it with the new once. It was an easy job.
      Thank you.
