Maytag Dryer Motor noise
« on: March 28, 2009, 12:01:39 AM »

For the last few months there was a loud squealing noise in my dryer that would go away after a few minutes. So i tore it down and greased the drum rollers and sure enough that solved the squealing.

Now i have a slight warbling sound coming from the motor. Any ideas? Motor is strong. Sounds like there might be slight friction in the motor and magnet.

Thanks for your time.

Model LDE9306ACE

Check the blower wheel on the front of the motor shaft. When they wear, they freewheel on the shaft causing a shuddering noise. You also have vent issues by the way of your complaints on this dryer, so look into this as a potential cause. Remember, Maytag does not approve foil vent hose on their products.
