Question about Dryers

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

Maytag ldg26cs gas commercial dryer never shuts off, runs normally and drys clothes but never stops or goes into cooldown mode.

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

Washer dryer comb. Washer is noisy in spin cycle, sounds like a bearing surface is starting to wear. Any normal wear parts that would do this or do I need to take the machine apart and look into it?

You have answered your own question. Any noise not normally there needs thorough investigation to find the cause. All parts wear normally. If you can fix anything without taking it apart........I cannot help you!

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.

Amana Dryer will not work,will not stay on,makes funny noises

during the process of moving your dryer, it sounds like the drum became dislodged. With the dryer off, open the door and try to move the drum by hand, if it sounds like something is 'dragging' them the drum is off its bearings. IF it is, the quickest way to get help to take it apart is go online to youtub, type in your dryers name and model number and ask how to replace drum

Maytag Neptune Dryer making vibrating noise while working

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
