Default My dryer is screaming!
Model Number: LSG7804AAE   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years

Hi, my Maytag dryer is making an intermittent high-pitched shrieking sound. I had it repaired 2 years ago and it was fine for a while but has started up again. Sometimes it goes away, but it seems to be getting louder these days. It dries great though! This thing owes me no favors (I bought it 18 years ago), so I am wondering if it is worth repairing?

It is in a very small bathroom so access to the back is possible, but very difficult. Is it worth having it fixed again? (It cost me $130 last time). Should I try to fix it myself? What would this involve?

Thanks!

Go for a new one you got your moneys worth and if it's squeeling again after 2 years that's pretty quick for things to break again or your overloading the unit causing it to break more often. You can buy a new one for 299 on sale sometimes............it's your money your choice

Thanks, HumboldtRepairMan. I guess I'll have to get a new one. It still works well except for the noise. Can I just keep running it until it completely conks out, even with all the shrieking? It's a gas dryer so I don't want to create a hazard.

Couldn't tell you i'm not looking at it. With gas anything malfunctioning isn't a good idea to keep running because of the sparks and gas.
