Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200
I keep hearing really bad squeaking noises in my dryer and i dont know if its the belt or the pulleys in the bottom of dryer. was wondering if i could get manual or a diagram on how to get the pulleys or the belt off to check I have a very similar problem, however I was told by a tech that the problem is common with Maytag, and it seems to be "brake" related. That is it makes this very loud squeaking noise just before it stops. Not sure if what's the "real" problem is, however it's getting louder and louder.
Yes check the brake. Just open the back panel and look under the machine. Check the brake latch and make sure that when the unit starts to spin that the brake backs itself off and also make sure that the bad is not worn down. If it is then replace it. A few screws and off it comes. To check the pulley and the belt there is really no wrong way to do it. First look at the belt and make sure that it is not cracked or really smooth. If that checks out ok then make sure that it is attached to the pulley fully and that the pulley is not bent
