Question about Maytag Dryers
The dryer acts like the motor is overloaded then overheats and occasionally will not start. The empty drum turns - by hand - but seems way too hard. The rollers in the rear seem to turn ok when the drum is lifted to free them. Does the front of the drum have a friction support? If so, how can it be checked and if necessary replaced or repaired?
GE dryers tpically use polyethelene slide strips located at 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock. There is a special grease specified by GE to lower friction and increase the life of the slides, with the key feature being that the lube does not damage the poly slide strips. The strips are available in a kit or premounted on the steel bracket. If you are comfortable with drilling out the rivets that hold the strips in place, just get the strip set - about $ 18 a year ago. The premounted strips will be less aggravating with only a slightly shorter install time.
You'll find the strips mounted inside the front cover just below the door opening.
