What could be the reason why my 2005 Maytag dryer is rattling? It seems as though the air vent line is loose inside the back of the dryer. it is a metal sounding rattle. I've tried reconnecting the outside air vent line... didn't help.

Could be a loose belt or pulley or just a screw loose. Unplug the dryer, and turn the drum by hand (Anti-Clockwise) and listen for the sound, if you hear it, its something to do with the drive/pulley/belt or something that is supposed to move. If it has no sound it must be a loose part that not driven, either way, you need a repair man. If your a little mechanical minded you may find the noise by removing the rear panel. Unplug before though, good luck.
