Dryer Drum Won't Spin

I have a Maytag Washer/Dryer combination which is about 16 years old - Model # LSE7800ACW. When I turn the dryer on, it heats, but the drum won't turn. What could be the problem?

Thanks for your help.

Reach inside and grab ahold of the baffle. Try to spin the drum, it should have resistance. If it spins freely you have a broken belt. Hope that helps. Dave ww.washermd.com

I have a maytag lse7800acw stack on with some years on it which always ran like new until the dryer completely lost power the timer dial won't even tick when you turn it to start it


First, have you check to see if one of the breakers have been thrown?
Second, if the breakers are good, check the "thermal cutoff" for continuity. It is located on the blower housing. Here is the part to order in case it is bad.
Post back your results.

Dryer is about 5 years old. Has begun to squeak loudly when clothes begin to spin


Are you comfortable taking the dyer apart? There are just a few simple screws to remove. It sounds like a bad blower wheel. If you follow the link you should be able to trouble shoot the issue.

CHANGE THE DRYER BELT MODEL LSE7800ACW MAYTAG WASHER/DRYER COMBO


Hi...you can go to the following website and check out how the belt goes on the dryer.
On a front load dryer, you would normally remove the front to expose the drum and belt, after you remove the drum then that exposes the drum rollers, motor, idler arm pulley, etc.

Hope this helps

Model PYE2300 AYW the dryer turns on and provides heat but the drum does not spin


your belt has come off the drum or has broken. Take the model and serial number to parts house for replacement. The belt should be accessed through the back of the dryer. Good Luck on your repair. Make sure to disconnect electricty before removal of back.

Maytag Dryer MDG9700AWW has split into the metal drum at the seam


I'd say take the 50% off offer. Dryer drums are very thin, and a weld would most likely still make a thump noise every time it passed the drum supports. (two thumps per revolution) I've seen this on other brands which use thin stainless steel drums. (I didn't look up your model to see if the drum was SS or powder coated metal, or galvanized, or whatever) It is not a real common thing, but certainly not unheard of. I'd say it was indeed a poor weld, but the manufacturer's generally won't help much once it makes it past the warranty period. Don't bother rating this, as anything but a FixYa lowers my rating. Thanks.
