Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Electric dryer drum turns, but getting no heat from coil.

Date: 02-24-09

I have an old Maytag Front loading Electric Dryer, mod.#LDE9334ACE, Ser.# 16901692QK. I checked the coil with multimeter and got continuity (coil good). Next, I would like to check the thermal fuses, but need to know where to connect my test leads on these devices, and more importantly, what test results to expect if they are good versus bad.

Thanks for your help.

There's a slight burning smell coming from the dryer drum.


Some item may have gotten between the drum that rotates and the housing and during the rolling of the drum this item may be heating up from the friction. Check closely to see if you can find anything rubbing on the drum.

I have a maytag dependable care plus electric dryer LDE9334ACE. It has started to make a high pitched squealing noise. I have tried to get into it to check to see if it might be a belt. No idea how to open...


That squeal is a wheel. Most likely the one closest to the heating source. I use a product called zoomspout oil because it is safe for dryers.

Your dryer has glides on it similar but not exactly like this.
check and see if they need to be replaced. They pinch and bind when the plastic wears out.

If that belt gets down in the tub groove you is gonna have trouble. The slick side goes to the tub on this puppy also.

I have a maytag electric dryer and it will not heat and dry clothes. The type number is DWSR-ELE-2406026-CV54. Mod # MED5800TWO SER - MV4920498 The owners manual does not have any trouble shooting...


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Maytag electric dryer for months has taken about 3 times to dry a load of clothes now it has quit spinning


Sounds like you have a broken belt.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
Also you need to remove the back,
Sounds like your other problem is with the heating coil.
If you plan to try to repair the problem yourself, then the first thing you want to do is unplug the dryer from the electric.
Remove the back of the machine and try to locate the air tube going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air tube you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor.
Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

It is making a horrible squealing nose when it runs and takes forever to dry. it is a maytag atlantis 7600 electric dryer.


The squealing noise you are describing sounds like the drum rollers in need of lubrication or replacement.
The problem with the drying could be a faulty heating coil and or faulty thermostats.
If your machine is a front loading machine:
Unplug the power cord to the dryer, remove the front of the machine, this will expose the drum and belt, then remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in one Oil. If the drum roller is worn or have flat spots on them, then you may need to replace them.
Remove the back of the machine and this will expose the air tube, find the air tube from the blower to the drum, normally inside this tube you will find the heating coil and thermostats.
Good luck, I hope this helps

Electric dryer makes a rumbling when tumbler is turning.


Check the drum bearing, a load noise, and often spinning problems are symptoms of a bad drum bearing.The bearing is at the base of the drum and accessing it is not easy.

You can find diagrams and replacement parts entering model number here.
