Question about Dryers
Maytag MDE4658AYW. I've got the dryer open, the top is up and the front is off. But how do I get to the motor to replace it? It's completely hidden, and I can't take the drum out because the belt is around the drum.
You must remove the drum. Reach underneth the drum and locate the tentioner, then create some slack by pushing on the tensioner. Remove the belt from the tentioner and then the barrel. If you havent yet remove one end of the dryer where the barrel rides on the carpet sleave ring you will have to do that to get the barrel out. WATCH YOUR FINGERS. But before you dive off into this how are you sure that the motor is the issue? Dont work to get to the motor unless you have check all other components to ensure that the motor is realy the issue. A simple bad door switch will keep to motor from running, thats just onething of many that will keep it from running. Not trying to talk down to you I just dont know your level of knowledge. Hope this helps.
