Maytag Dependable Care Plus squeaking
 
My Maytag Dependable Care Plus dryer (model LDE5914ACE) started making a loud, high-pitched squeaking noise all of a sudden. I noticed it this evening-this is the very first time it has happened.

After turning it on, it has the high-pitched squeak for about five minutes and then it stops. If I open the door and stop the dryer, then close the door and start it again, it does the same thing over again (squeaks for five minutes or so and then stops).

It is most likely the drum rollers. That is what I always find. There are 2 of them. Part # 12001541. Tom ********************************************

Thanks for the information! Are they difficult to replace? (Husband is fairly handy.)

Actually, I have a way I do it, where you dont have to take the belt off, or the drum. He takes the front off, and then he takes the front blower housing off, which has 4 screws holding it on. 2 on the right side front, and 2 on the left side front. Then he removes the blower housing. Then just pull the dryer drum off the rear rollers, and it will kind of sit down, and then he can get to the rollers. He will need a snap ring plyers to take the rollers off. Once done, lift the drum back on the rollers, and put the blower housing back on, and then the front, and instant quiet dryer.
