Hi,

I own a Maytag model MD6000 gas dryer and it is making a very loud squealing sound why drying.  The cloths seem to dry ok, but the noise is killing me.  It sounds like a pully wheel needs to be oiled or replaced, but before I take it apart, I was wondering if anyone had some advise?

Thanks,

You could have bad drum rollers, a bad idler pulley or something stuck in the blower housing rubbing on the blower wheel.  Or something stuck between the drum and the front seals.  You will really need to take it apart to see what is causing the noise.  Pegi
