Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Maytag stactable wash/dryer LSE7806Ace

Dryer "clunks" when starting and when "stops."  Large belt around drum seems to not catch to whatever is behind face plate on lower left of unit.  How can I access this unit on the lower left below the drum.
Or do you think something else is doing the "Clunk."

    I was thinking maybe the blower wheel because the belt seems to slip when starting and stopping the dryer.  When you say "rear bearing" so you mean the wheel on the back left of the dryer?  Also do you know how I access the inside of the dryer.  It is stackable and the dryer is on top and I can't seem to get to the "guts" of the unit? Thanks

    Same problem here as described by the other member. Sounds like the belt has loosened. I'll be watching this thread -- thanks for the input!

part number 208823,all it is is a safety so the washer can't run with the lid open so it will fill and then stop because the switch is bad.

I have a Maytag LAT9400AAW. I started a (large) load and it filled and started screeching and smoking. I thought the dryer was on fire until I unplugged the dryer and got behind it. I stopped the washer. ...


You have overloaded you machine. The sound you hear is the belt burning of the machine, Please limit the size of the loads and hope you did not do further damage to you machine

Drum doesn't turn in maytag neptune MDE9700AYW


Just remove the screws around the vent tube in the back and you can see the belt tensioner laying there on the floor of the dryer.
Most likely someone turned the drum the wrong direction and the belt came off.
The belt goes through the opening in the tensioner and under the idler pulley and then onto the motor drive pulley. Make sure to have the tensioner mounted into the floor first.
It just slides over into a slot and then over to the other side as tension is put on it.

Dryer makes a loud noise then stops


If it stops running when hot it may be the motor. The belt or drum rollers would not stop it from running.

Noisy dryer


Don't turn the tub to much this may make the belt run off track . If the machine makes a rumble at the beginning and at the end or when u stop the machine and restart it it is probably the blower wheel,it is made of plastic ans wears out on the motor shaft.
