I have a Maytag Dryer. Model # LDE8414ACE. The dryer is approx 11 years old. The belt was replaced about 5 years ago.
Problem: The dryer makes a loud, continuouis noise while running. Sounds like a cross between the belt squealing and metal on metal. The dryer also takes a little longer to dry clothes. The drum is turning and the dyer does get hot.
Before I start taking the thing apart, I was wondering where I should start, try a new belt?
