Unplug the dryer and remove the bottom service panel on the front of the unit.Use a putty knife to release the clips on each side of the panel and pull it off.With the panel pulled off, you should be able to see the drive belt and motor.Turn the drum counterclockwise by hand and see if you hear the squealing.
This is a very common issue on the unit and the problem is the likely going to be the idler pulley wheel.You can remove the screws coming in from the back of the top panel, then remove the top panel and remove the control panel, finally remove the front panel.
My dryer squealssqueaks when starting up then goes away.Is this my belt slipping due to being stretched out.Ive since replaced the drum wheels in the rear and the loud squeak is now gone but then the drum would not turn.Terrible squeaking and squealing noise from maytag mde4000 dryer i have already changed both drum rollersdrum.
After turning power on, drum started to turn and could tell the noise was coming from as i am facing unit, looking over top from the right rear.After reviewing the manual and callout drawings i found thanks again jake, i stopped the dryer and inspected carefully the track that the drum rollers would use on the drum.
