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.

Dryer hums but will not start


bad motor,if it does start and runs then shuts down and you can't restart it until it cools down you have a bad motor,or open the door and see if you can spin the drum,i found a dryer that the belt cut through the pastic belt pulley and the motor couldn't turn,also something could be stuck inthe blower wheel but if you can spin the drum then it's the motor.the noise you heard is either a bad roller,the belt pulley or the motor bearing.next time send the model number and i can look up you dryer to see what parts are in it.hope this helps.

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 dryer (LDE5914ACE) loud slipping/thumping sound


yes, it's called a blower wheel... it is what blows the air into the dryer to blow out the humidity through the vent... it has a D fitting and as you use it, the D rounds out and the 'squirrel cage' stops spinning and begins to slip... if you continue to use the dryer without replacing this, you could burn up your dryer motor... it will just over heat....

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

My 15 year old Maytag Dryer is starting to squeal from the drum rubbing metal to metal up front. The Belt is in good shape. What else could be problem?


Time for a new one I think, but here goes.
The drum guide rollers at the rear or the guide pads at the front will be worn out, due to the age parts may be difficult.
To inspect:
Electrically Isolate the machine, at the joint between the front panel and top panel insert a flat blade 4" from each side to release the top catches and tilt the lid back to open, remove the front panel internal screws and remove the front panel.
The drum and machine internals can be seen.
Remove the drum belt - note the belt path direction around the motor and belt tensioner.
The drum removes by rotating and easing forward, there will be pads or rollers that support the drum, check these as they are the most probable cause.
