Question about Maytag PYE3300 Dryer
Our dryer has progressively not been drying our clothes. We have been having to have 2 or more full cycles just to get a normal size load of clothes dry. When putting in a load tonight, we hear a "pop" sound and noticed that our dryer was not turning. Upon investigation, we noticed that there was a broken belt. We don't know where to put on the new belt, and are wondering if this is the reason that maybe our clothes have not been getting dry. We have a Maytag Performance 7 cycle (model # PYE3360AYW) dryer that is only about 3 years old. Can you help please?
I use a putty knife to press against the spring clips to pop the top. Then I use a quarter inch nutdriver to remove the screws holding the front panel on. I remove the wires from the door switch and lift out the front panel. I remove the drum and put the dryer on a work bench or a tailgate. I inspect the blower wheel(most of the time they get loose). I get the ball of lint out of the front panel filter housing. I vacuum out the dryer with my shopvac. I oil the rollers and idler and inspect the drum slides for wear. I loop a new belt rib side down to the drum and set it back in the dryer. With my left hand I drop the belt under the motor pulley and raise up the idler looping the belt on it and let the tension hold the idler. I manually slowly turn the drum to make sure the belt is secure and not twisted. I place the front back on. Snap the top down and give her a try. Piece of cake.
