Question about Magic Chef CYG2000AWW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

My dryer stopped working. A technician told me that the motor is damaged. I want to order a new motor but can't find a site with this motor, the price and how much it would cost to ship it to my island Aruba. I have a Magic Chef Dryer, model cyg2000aww. It has another problem too. The timer knob will not move by itself so it stays at one cycle. Maybe this caused the motor to burn. Si I need the switch too I think

Turn table stops turning, then motor shuts off

George A Faria,
I understand that the turntable stops turning and then the motor shuts off. I also see that you're stating the appliance works fine without the belt on it. My suggestion would be not to run the dryer without the belt. This can cause wear on the motor itself. What I would suggest is to put the belt back on. If it still stops turning and the motor is shutting off, I suggest contacting either the manufacturer or a local authorized technician. This way the root of the issue will be found and your dryer will last longer.

-Best Regards-

After fitting a new time to a hotpoint CDT00

Sometimes even one connection can make the circuit non functionable and so it can be due to a wrong connection. I request that you check once again and logically check the lines to go in order to start the cycle, INLET, cut off from the water level sensor, Start motor, stop and drain, spin and rinse, fill water and then for final dry and drain pump.
Check for all leads to be correct, check if the stepper motor works in circuit to move forward after the main power is switched.

Dryer runs approx 10 min then stops

Sorry for the trouble but it sounds like you have a bad motor. I would recommend a qualified service technician come look at it and replace the motor they can be tricky a new motor will run you $125-$150 and whatever the tech charges for labor. If this is a older machine I would recommend you buying a quality used one or a new one I hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya!

I have the heavy duty 4 cycle Amana dryer. When I turn it on it is very loud and stops after about 20 minutes. It smells really hot so maybe it's overheating? But why?

sounds like motor bearings are failing. causes motor to overheat and cut out on motor protector. I'm afraid a new motor is in order.

Trying to replace timer 8299771. Can't find my

On the new timer , you have 2 wires comming of the timer motor . The blue wire should go to one of these terminals on the timer itself . The place where there is ONLY a timer motor wire going to , is where it should go .

Dryer heats for a bit then stops.

Looking in the wrong place. i see this 3 to 4 times a week. you have a bad motor. Motor will continue to run if the gas does not light. Just like it runs on air only. The motor stops due to internal switch that keeps it from catching on fire. Sorry someone put you on the wrong track but you will need to replace the motor.
Please rate this solution if helpful.

Spin Dryer doesn't work on Hoover 500M

Most probably the solonoid (also called brake motor). This is a 5 rpm motor that activates the drum to spin. I just replaced it two days back in my machine (Model 500M0AUS - you'll have to be specific when ordering or better take the old one to the spare part shop) which had a similar problem. The new soloniod I bought had a shorter cable length so I had to improvised when fitting. If soloniod is the problem then make wure the steel brake lever tooth fits perfectly in axle groove when you finish replaceing it. Do the replacement when the machine has fully stopped after completing its wash cycle.
Repair technician quoted 250 while the solonid costed me only 86. I did not charge labour to myself:)
Hope this is helpful.

It could very well be a thermostat problem, however, it could also be the drive motor itself starting to burn out. Some dryers are equipped with a "Thermal Limiter" that will cut the power to heat. It doesn't seem to be the case for you. I would defiantely look into another thermostat but if it comes down to the motor, depending on the price, You may want to buy a new dryer.
