Maytag dryer motor problem

Dear Customer Support,


I have a problem with the 12 year old Maytag dryer. Unfortunately I don't know the exact model. I opened the dryer and it looks like the belt is broken.


It would be great if somebody in San Diego area can come to my house to estimate the problem.


Thank you,

Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

There are many variables!
Every year thousands of people die trying to repair electrical appliances them selves!

You are worth more than that!
Bless you!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505 near me they only charge $75 service call which is reasonable in today s market!

Unfortunely, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

SOURCE: Belt change on a Maytag DE410

Most of the time these models have screws in the back of the machine on the top lid. You'll need to get over behind the dryer to access this panel. You'll need a "star" type screwdriver (most come in a set). Remove the top lid to expose the drum. The belt will run around the drum and down around the safety cut out switch. This switch is most likely a teflon or plastic wheel that the belt loops around. After installing the belt, replace all of the screws and you're good to go!

Maytag dryer does not heat.

If the dryer comes on but doesn't heat, it is probably the heating element. If the dryer doesn't come on at all, it most likely is the dryer's motor.

HiMy name is Ray and i would like to increase the drying time on a maytag commercial dyer model lde19cs

i just got off the phone with Maytag Commercial Laundry customer service, because i needed to know how to adjust the run times on this dryer model. here is what i learned:

there are slots in the timing cam into which fit a white pin for adjusting the run time. the letter settings on the cam are set at 12 minutes apart:
E = 12 minutes
D = 24 minutes
C = 36 minutes
B = 48 minutes
A = 60 minutes

if your dryer is running 48 minutes, that pin is likely in the 'B' slot. remove the pin. the built-in stop at the 'A' position is for 60 minutes.

Just had the idler pulley replaced on my Maytag dryer (loud banging noise)but it now has a very high pitched squeal sound (awful)! When I called the repair guy back he implied that the part might need to...

Most Maytag products have a 2 yr. parts warranty from the factory, so if you need a motor replaced, do it before your warranty expires. Check your warranty certificate for your particular units coverage.
I never heard of a self-lubricating idler pulley and this problem should not cause you to have to replace the dryer.
Note:Maytag produces several different designs and purchase prices of dryers with their name on it, so it would be beneficial to have a model number, so that we can provide more accurate information.

Let us know if we can be of any more assistance
