Default Dryer squealing, now won't start
Model Number: LDG8704AAE   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Our Maytag dryer was squealing yesterday and after I stopped it to check it, I had to hold the start button in to get it started. It seemed like it might be binding, which makes sense from the squealing. Today it won't start up at all. It does hum when I push the Start button, but I don't want to hold it too long and burn something out. This has been an awesome dryer. I just replace parts each time something happens and it keeps on working. I am just wondering where to start.

It could be your idler pulley or the rear rollers or the motor's bearings could be causing the problem.

The only way to find out is to get in there and check the parts. Don't forget the front glides. If you haven't rebuilt it for a few years it could have multiple bad parts.

Yes, these were long lasting machines. Built to last.

Thank you ThatGuy, I ordered parts after your Reply. When I received the parts, I replaced the rear rollers, the front pads, and the belt the night before last. They all appeared to need replacement (and after 20 years that makes sense). Anyway, the dryer started, but it was squeaking a lot. The squeaking seemed to go away and my wife ran a couple loads yesterday. Late yesterday she went to use it again and it is not working. You push the power button in and it hums like it is trying, but nothing. I can't bypass the door switch and push the drum to start by hand either. I am lost.
