Customer Question
We have two commercial...

We have two commercial dryers, model mdg78pnaww20.and they both make a loud grinding/squealing sound when the machine has a damp load in it. The sound goes away after the material starts to dry. I was thinking it may be the drum rollers but not sure

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Maytag MDG78PNAWW20 approximatel 5 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

We would be to unless there are proprietary tools or parts.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The only other thing is both macines started making the noises a short time apart
