Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE6400AY Electric Dryer
I can't get to the back of my dryer due to a casted broken leg.
I have a Maytag Atlantis electric dryer purchased at Best Buy and delivered on 16 October, 2003. I don't remember it being the highest-line model they carried. I think Best Buy may have had their own specific model numbers, but I'm not sure. The delivery service botched the vent connection badly and I had to revise it, but other than that it has worked well. We average about one heavy load a day.
About a week ago I noticed a cyclical clunking sound while the machine was running. I thought at first of a knot of tangled clothes banging around, but when I pulled the clothes out there were no tangles. I restarted it empty and the clunk was still there. It clunks at about the same point of each revolution of the drum.
As I said, I'm a bit incapacitated right now, but any suggestions will be pursued as soon as I can.
The machine is opened and inspected from the front
opening from the front there is no heavy lifting or moving of the dryer needed,
the usual causes of a ' cyclic clunk '
a worn spot on a drum felt. when that area reaches the bottom, the weight of the
drum causes a clunk.
a damaged belt that clunks when the tear hits the drum
a collapsing drum roller(replace in pairs)
each is easy to fix, cheap,
