Question about Whirlpool LER4634J Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Maytag MDG4806AWW Runs for 5 to 10 seconds and then shuts off

Installed a new motor, same issue. No resistance from rollers or guides. Only 2 years old. While everything was apart, cleaned out all traces of lint just in case. I do not have to wait for motor to cool down. I can just restart it at will over and over again. It just runs for 5-10 seconds and keeps shutting down. Gas will ignite, coils open. Help!

This is kind of unusual esp. on a newer model. Sounds like it could be the signal from the thermostat to the motor could be bad. The timer may be faulty especially since you replaced the motor.

I have a maytag dryer LDE4910, it runs for about 2 minutes then shuts off


You will need to open the cabinet and check to see if there is a blockage in the blower assembly or if the motor is covered with lint. The motor is overheating. If all is clear then you will need to replace the motor. Here is the motor to order.

Maytag neptune top load bearings seized in drum pulley , freed bearings and greased.now drum spins free but hard time to start turning is it possible motor trouble ?


I’m an owner not a repair person but I will pass on my FAV6800AW Clutch issue experience.

With an empty Wash Basket open the lid and with one finger (pinky) you should be able to rotate the wash basket with little rotational resistance. I’m not sure how else to describe normal Wash Basket CCW rotational resistance in the Spin direction of the system. In my eyes any more resistance than that would indicate some binding in the system. If the roller clutches were seized as you describe I would replace the clutch but lets discuss further.

How much CCW rotational resistance did you detect with the clutch out? Did you follow this post for the One-Way Roller clutch bearing clean up? In that post I discuss checking for CCW rotational resistance prior to removing the Clutch. Does your FAV6800AW use the upper Roller Clutch Bearing Ring as I show in this post? If so what condition was it in?

The Outer Tub bearings may be adding to the CCW rotational resistance (Leaking Tub Seal). You could remove the belt off the Clutch pulley the motor should spin freely by hand and I feel you will find that is not causing the increased CCW rotational resistance with the above check.

I would drop the clutch out again and check the Wash Basket CCW rotational resistance. That would give me a feel if the Outer Tub bearings are adding to the CCW rotational resistance. If the Wash Basket rotates CCW freely I would replace the clutch with the one I recommend in this post.

Post back if you have questions and maybe we can have another forum member speak to this issue. I could be over looking something in troubleshooting. Good Luck

Maytag dryer squeeks when I first turn it on. Started about a couple of weeks ago. Squeek would go away after a few minutes, however now it is continuous.


Hi, The most popular squeeling issue in the Maytag dryer is caused from the idler pulley. The idler pulley keeps tension on the belt. The next possible problem could be the 2 rear drum rollers. These rollers are fastened to the rear bulk head and they support the drum. The third possibility is the motor bearing. Usually, when the motor starts to squeel, the motor will shut off suring the cycle and will not restart until the motor cools down.
I would advise you to change the idler pulley as well as the rear support rollers. The cost for these parts are very costly and a little preventive maintainance goes a long way.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.


Thanks
Vic

re original issue, see if R11 is burned. if so, need to change R11 resistor and associated triac, and probably wax motor so it won't do it again. temporary fix just cut out R11, door won't lock. if your model won't spin that way, depress actuator for microswitch from door wax motor. instructions on web.
