Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer was stored for several years, when hooked up drags and sounds as if the belt is dragging. Takes a while to spin if load is very heavy.

If it was me I would oil the rollers and idler. To do so you must remove the front and get the drum out. It might not hurt to clean her up real good. You might find some spare change. My home videos

SOURCE: Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes

Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

SOURCE: My whirlpool dryer heat up. But does not spin.

Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Check for belt on drum half way back on the drum running from left to right. If belt is missing or broken replace with part number 341241 later in this process.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a 5/16" hex head screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior. Rotate front panel to right to get it out of the way watching to ensure wiring is not damaged.

Place new belt over drum groove side down if old one was broken. Check white idler pulley for free rotation before installing in holes of floor under motor pulley. Replace with part number 691366 if rotation of pulley is not free or if it appears worn. Loop belt with ribs inward and pass through the open space in the idler arm below pulley then pass loop over motor pulley rib side down. The configuration at the motor should now look like the Whirlpool model in the image below:

Belt and pulley configuration

Grasp front edge of dryer drum and rotate counterclockwise slowly to align idler and motor pulley and to remove any twists in the belt.

Reverse disassembly process to re-assemble.

SOURCE: How do I change the drive belt?

Unplug the dryer.
Remove the lint filter.
Remove the 2 screws at the lint filter opening.
Use a putty knife between the top lid and the front panel to release the clips.
They are about 2 inches in from right and left sides where the top meets the front panel.
Lift the lid towards the rear of the dryer.
Look inside the top right and left corners of the front panel and remove the screws holding the front to the cabinet. Remove the door switch wires and set the door aside.
Place the new belt over the drum,ribbed side towards the drum.
Look under the drum for the belt tensioner. It is S shaped with a wheel on it.
Place the base of the tensioner in the slots below the motor pulley.
Feed the right side of the belt through the opening under the wheel with the smooth side of the belt touching the wheel.
Place this side of the belt over the motor pulley with the ribbed side touching the pulley.
Replace the front panel.
Hook up the door switch wires.
Replace the panel screws.
Reattach the top lid and lint filter screws. Replace the lint filter.
Plug in the dryer.

Maytag electric dryer drum starts and stops turning but keeps going


Hello,
I would think you are on the right track, possibly a belt, I would also check all the rollers or idlers while you are replacing the belt.
Enjoy and best wishes

We have a MMDE9206AYM model dryer that makes a low humming sound but will not start. Last night it also produced a burning smell. I assume either the belt is gone or the motor is overheating although it...


Sounds like drum is locked and motor is running and burned the belt. Try to spin drum by hand, Might check drum ends felt seals, Teflon bearing strips located on the bottom lip of front drum end for wear causing drag. Also check 2 drum support wheels to see if they spin freely, take the belt off motor pulley and spin drum by hand, if easier & motor runs drum is dragging. How is the spring on tensioner, does tensioner pulley spin free? Hope this helps locate the problem.

With heavy loads in the machine, it will not spin down the load. The load is very wet at the end of spinning. If the load is reduced it spins okay. New drive belt has been installed with the same results.


I'M HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM IM DOING AN EXTRA HEAVY LOAD WITH 2 PAIR OF JEANS IN IT SO THAT IT RINGS OUT COMPLETELY.

I HAVE HAD THE PLASTIC AGITATOR PIECE REPLACED SEVERAL TIMES.

THIS IS THE WORSE WASHING MACHINE I'VE EVER HAD. I WILL NEVER BY WHIRLPOOL AGAIN.

PLUS THE DRYER IS TERRIBLE TOO!!!!

Dryer is 11 years old. Hard starting( moans and struggles), and if I spin the drum it will start. the drum turns ok, it may be a little harder to spin than normal but not sure.


I think you need to check your belt and drum rollers.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Check the condition of the belt and replace it if it is worn or cracked, it may have slipped off of the idler pulley causing drag on the belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers. Your drum rollers may be dragging or in need of lubrication.
Check your rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If they don't have flat spots on them, then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
http://www.partselect.com/
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

When I turn on the dryer you can hear a drag and turns loudly


Sounds like you may have a sock or something stuck between the drum and the front felt seal...or maybe your drum roller needs lubrication or replacement.
If you have a front loading machine you would normally pull the front of the machine off, that will expose the drum and seal, if you remove the drum, then that will expose the rollers.
Lube the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as
3 in One oil.
I hope this helps
