Maytag Performa Washer PAV2300AWW and Performa Dryer PYE2200AYW

So I have this pair of Maytag Performa's. They are about 10 yrs old. I have an issue with each in the same week!

The dryer is taking a very long time to dry. The lint trap and all routing outside are clean and free of obstruction. It seems as though sometimes it heats, and other times it doesn't which requires another cycle (in which case it does heat). Why would it work one time, and not the next?

As for the washer, immediately after filling, it makes a terrible grinding noise when it begins to agitate. It will fill fine, it will spin fine, it drains fine....but again, sounds like a bunch of shredded gear teeth when agitating. I checked the belt and it appears to be fine, but I have not yet tore it down.

Sincerely appreciate any help for fixing them both! Thanks!

Bad drain pump on the washer...slam dunk.
As for the dryer, I would ge checking the cord/terminal block/receptacle for a loose /burned/melted connection...

Reg, sometimes when the splined spacer on the pump pulley shaft begins to work its way out of its proper place, one edge will begin to stick out first, making it much noisier in one direction than the other.
I suppose it would be prudent to remove the pump and take a look ,as this should be visually obvious.
If this pump is ok, uh-oh...tranny time!

Thank you to all for the replies. I have one question though.... When the washer goes to agitate, isn't the water still in it? If so, then the noise wouldn't be in the drain pump. Also, I have turned the dial past the wash cycle to drain, and it sounds fine when draining...

That pump gets driven whenever the motor runs, they are notorious for making noise while agimatating - could be as simple as an item in the pump or hose.

Check the pump see if there is something on it remove belt turn it with you hand.... That dryer has issues with heat is there is poor air flow or it something is in the blower or the blower is failing... If the blower is failing it makes a rumbling noise even a few seconds after you turn it off

Make a youtube video of it most of us can diagnose from just hearing it
