« on: November 16, 2010, 11:35:28 AM »
The sound it is making is like drying a pair of tennis shoes. Not sure what parts I might need to replace? I dont have the model number just yet. Maytag Atlantis Dryers

You will have to have the model number. If I had to guess I would say the rollers are bad but we need the model number to make sure it even has rollers.

Most of them did so assuming it does the drum rides on rubber rollers (two at the back and maybe one at the front). When the rollers fail/wear out it can sound like the dryer is going to fall apart.

Also Maytag dryers are bad about the blower wheels stripping out. When this happens the motor turns but the blower will not so you will get a horrible noise.

We will be able to tell you more with the model number.

an easy way to locate the noise is turn the dryer on  an dstick your ear to the lower  front corners of dryer if noise is  coming from front its the blower wheel if from back of dryer it rollers my guess its blower wheel

My guess is the blower wheel. Common Maytag issue.
