Question about Amana Dryers

1 Answer

The dryer drum is making a noise like it's loaded with bricks

I took perfectly working dryer from shed, and put it back in garage to use. Plugged it in and started it. Forgot to check inside dryer for empty jaegermeister bottles and crown royal bottles. After removing broken glass and still intact bottles, when running dryer it sounds like the drum is out of kilter or off balance or something. I removed the back panel to expose the drum but it exposed nothing. Do i need to get to the drum through the front and top of dryer! If so, how do i go about it.

The top pops up from the front and then you will have access to the drum by removing the front.

    At this point you will have to physically inspect the drum and the rollers it spins on. To remove the drum you will have to work the narrow belt towards the rear off. Once off, the drum basically sits in there. You will have to pull it forward a bit then up and out. You will see towards the rear a felt type gasket which holds the heat in. Try your best not to damage it.



    At this point, without sitting in front of it, is all the advice I can give you. It's pretty simple as you will see once apart. A large, belt driven, drum that rides on rollers with a felt gasket which seals and centers in at the rear. You should be able to see any problems from that point.

Maytag Dryer- Drum not rotating (belt and motor both work)


I surely do hope this fixes it all.
The pulley that fell apart is supposed to. Well, not quite. It is not fastened inside the machine, and comes off easily. It is the belt tensioner. It fits into 2 slots on the bottom steel panel of the machine (The base)
You will be finding it is a pain in the neck to put back on, but you can do so. The belt goes with the grooves toward the drum, not away from it. The belt goes in a S shape around the motor pulley and the tensioner pulley. One you put the tensioner back in it's place nin the two slots, you will push (or pull) on it against the spring arm to "bend" it so as to get the belt back on.
Be blessed.

I took apart my dryer to investigate a noise. While it was apart I noticed arcing at the terminals. L1 had completely melted. I purchased a new terminal block and installed it. Everything went back...


Hi herbert hurt...
The noise you are hearing could be your drum rollers.
They could need cleaning and lubrication or replacement.
If they need lubrication they will make a squeeling noise, if they have flat spots on them they will make a thumping type of noise.
If that is you noise then take the dryer apart and lube,clean, or replace the drum rollers
Please take time to rate me

Dryer making noise and quits running


You may need to replace the drum rollers and front drum glides. The motor definitely is bad and should be replaced.
A Maytag dryer is worth investing the repair cost.

It Is fixable.All you need to is try to balance the load or a perfect concrete flat surface for the machine.

Drive belt and noises.


your drum shaft is broken this is making the pulley wobble causing the belt to come off and it will also explain the noise. This is a very expensive job sometimes requiring the complete tub to be changed might be time for a new machine
