Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Old (approx 30 years) gas dryer. It's been great.

Old (approx 30 years) Maytag gas dryer. It's been great. The drum has stopped turning. I assume there's a simple-to-replace broken belt. I can't figure out how to get the back off. The back is not a separate piece.

The fron comes off. Two screws located toward the bottom front (where the front panel angles in) hold the front on. Then you need to remove the front bulkhead/duct work.

Putting the belt on the idler pulley is the trick. If you get this far and need more help, let me know.

After 15 years of service I imagine it will be hard to get the parts you want to repair it.. Newer machines may not dry as quickly as the older types but they use less power to do so.. Consider a new machine for the sake of the economics of the problem

Drum runs and does not heat. The dial does not move. It does not shut off. It is a Maytag gas dryer about 12 years old. Has worked great untill this problem.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Our two year old Maytag gas dryer is making a rattling noise. The noise is intermittent. Also, when the dryer turns off and the drum stops turning something else seems to "run on."


this is most likely a broken wheel which is a wheel that the bearings have worn out on.If it is a wheel you should replace the set because if you replace just the one the others will wear out faster than they should.
Ps if it is only two years old it may still be under warranty!

No heat in the dryer. It is Maytag Neptune gas dryer about 9 years old. The drum rotates just fine but heat stopped a couple of days ago.

Dryer drum wont turn


These units use two circuits to operate. It is entirely possible that the circuit breaker for one is open. The breakers are linked units...generally 30-40 amperes. Turn both off and then on.
