I am glad to have found this forum. I am puzzled over troubleshooting what part I need to replace on my Maytag dryer, model number lde9306ace
. Thank you in advance to anyone who is kind enough to repond.
Anyway, I think that I may need to replace my idler pulley, or perhaps the kit which includes the "idler pulley & sleeve kit", part # W10116792
BUT, I could be totally wrong, hence my posting to this forum.
Problem - noisy dryer - loud clicking/popping sound. When I remove the rear panel that allows you to access the motor/drive belt assemble, the noise seems to come from the idler pulley assembly. While the dryer is running, if I carefully reach in and grab the spring and reduce the tension on the idler pulley assembly, the noise stops. What do you think? Anything else to check? Any advice is greatly appreciated.
