Dryer hums but will not start


bad motor,if it does start and runs then shuts down and you can't restart it until it cools down you have a bad motor,or open the door and see if you can spin the drum,i found a dryer that the belt cut through the pastic belt pulley and the motor couldn't turn,also something could be stuck inthe blower wheel but if you can spin the drum then it's the motor.the noise you heard is either a bad roller,the belt pulley or the motor bearing.next time send the model number and i can look up you dryer to see what parts are in it.hope this helps.

Trouble with Maytag Legacy gas Dryer


Please provide the model number and I will see if I can figure something out.
It sounds like you have covered the common problems. Usually a motor is the cause for this problem, it gets hot and shuts down until it cools off. I have had some problems with the auto dry controls on the Maytags also.
Are you equiped to do some voltage checks if we need too? This would help in knowing where you have power when it quits.
Thanks/Mike

Maytag gas dryer would run half cycle until it would shut down. now it struggles to start and then stops. pyg2300aww model.


Good day,
Every indication the motor is failing. Not uncommon.
Could be a bearing dragging badly, or idler assembly bearings, doing the same thing, but
A complete tear down of the dryer would need to be done to verify the problem.
Once again,figure the motor as the problem.

Thank you for using FixYa

Dryer stopped running with 30 minutes left and will not restart. Maytag Performa PYE2300AYW


Reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Allow the motor to cool, It has over temperature protection that will shut down the motor.

The belt that turns the drum may have broken. I am not sure about this model, but most dryers have a limit switch on the base of the dryer next to the motor that shuts down the dryer when the belt brakes.

Maytag gas dryer, model #MDG7600AWW does not turn on


a thermal fuse should read shorted until it gets hot .. the buzzing you hear might be the motor running but not turning the drum .. that would be a broken belt .. the motor is spring loaded to keep the belt tight ..the belt is long .. it goes around the drum and down to the motor ... belts are available at many appliance parts shops .. changing it is not hard for someone handy .. a bit more than you would want to handle if you are not mechanically inclined ... on some maytags the whole front of the dryer comes off with just two screws near the bottom .. that makes servicing much easier ..

My Maytag dryer buzzes when I push the start button. If you hold it in, the dryer will start but makes a noise, almost like a bad belt. After a few minutes the dryer will shut itself off and will not...


Remove the belt from the motor and push 'start'. If the motor makes loud noises, squeals, or the shaft has side play in several directions, then it probably is the motor. Replace it. If the the motor runs quietly, then check the drum by hand to see if it is making excessive noise while turning. There should be a little resistance to turning, but not real difficulty. Hope this helps.

Compare the wiring connections on both motors. They may be marked. They may be different. Careful examination will determine the start and run wires. Other wires turn on the heat once the motor reaches running speed. The thermal fuse for the motor is internal and unservicable. The hi limit sensor will control the heat, but will not necessarily turn off the motor.
