Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Noisy dryer , rough sound sometimes knocking

Maytag commercial dryer. how do you get it apart. Normally I know how to start taking something apart. but this is confusing. I suppose because it is a commercial one. I searched the internet and couldnt find a repair manual for it?
Even here when I entered the model number it kept asking me to pick a valid model number so I had to take it off and enter it here.. MDE10CSACW Thanks for your help

    Does that felt pad on both ends of the drum, ever need replacing?

  • vpolzin Jan 09, 2009

    OK , here is the answer. You take out two phillip scres on the bottom front and then raise the front out at a 45 degrees and the two spring tabs on the top release, Be careful of the door safty wires. My problem was a bad blower wheel, it was out of round and loose on the shaft. Thanks for your help. Vern

Start by pulling up the top more than likely it is the drive wheel or possibly the belt has come loose but there is a spring on the drive belt tension arm that gets worn or the plastic wheel that rides on the drum that needs replacing

Sounds like timer is stuck in one place and not counting down, can it be done manually? If so replace timer.

Brand new dryer is working but noisy


Aha: slope front dryer. Could very well be something down in the blower housing making the noise. To get into these you remove the door then the front panel comes off then the top can be raised so that you can get the front shroud off there to get the drum out. You cannot work from the back of this dryer. I have an older slopefront dryer service manual

The dry will not start the display or dig. Controls wont engage anything the start button keeps flashing was just working great


Bad Heating Element
Most clothing dryers heat up and dry clothes with a heating element inside the appliance's body. Maytag dryers are no different and sometimes these heating elements break down or burn out, making the dryer cease to get hot. Make sure the dryer is unplugged and the breakers that run the dryer are switched off before inspecting so you don't electrocute yourself. The heating element is in the bottom panel of the dryer and is often a silver part which heats up when the dryer is on. Sometimes the heating element will be cracked or burned out, which means it is broken. Other times it won't look damaged but may not be working. Replace the heating element if this occurs, to see if this is the main problem.
Broken Motor
Maytag dryers have motors which turn the dryer drum, tossing the clothes so that air and heat can help dry them out completely. When the dryer drum is not turning it means there is something wrong with the motor or that the motor is not getting power. Unplug the dryer and take it apart to inspect the motor. Once you have found the motor, plug the dryer back in and use a meter to see if the motor is getting power. If it is, and isn't working, then there is something wrong with the motor and how it is operating. If the motor isn't getting power, then there is something wrong with the circuits or fuses which disperse power to the motor itself.
Bad Switch
When Maytag dryers won't tumble or heat the clothes which have been put inside of them, this means there could be a number of different things wrong. However, sometimes there's a simple solution to this problem: The switch on the door of the dryer itself may be faulty or not making the electric connection it should to allow the dryer to run. This is a cheap fix and worth troubleshooting before tearing your Maytag dryer apart. Remove the switch and inspect the two leads to make sure they haven't broken or are still transferring electricity. If they aren't you will have to replace the switch

HiMy name is Ray and i would like to increase the drying time on a maytag commercial dyer model lde19cs


i just got off the phone with Maytag Commercial Laundry customer service, because i needed to know how to adjust the run times on this dryer model. here is what i learned:

there are slots in the timing cam into which fit a white pin for adjusting the run time. the letter settings on the cam are set at 12 minutes apart:
E = 12 minutes
D = 24 minutes
C = 36 minutes
B = 48 minutes
A = 60 minutes

if your dryer is running 48 minutes, that pin is likely in the 'B' slot. remove the pin. the built-in stop at the 'A' position is for 60 minutes.

a bearing in the back for your drum sounds like what you describe. It needs to be taken apart and the bearing lubricated with high temp grease
