Hi, newbie to this forum:

I have a 5 year old Maytag dryer that makes loud clanking type of noise when running. In fact when the dryer stops the noise continues for a second or so longer... Do you think I have a belt slipping??

Heating is not a problem at all.

Thanks in advance,

Harry

The "D" shaped part in the middle of the fan blower rounds out and the blower makes rumbling noises.
