Question about Maytag SDG4606A Gas Dryer

1 Answer

I recently changed the belt tensioner pulley and arm, when you set the dryer time and push the start button it comes on for a few minutes (1-5) then shuts off. like the switch isn't' holding or there is some other cut off on the electric motor. It was working fine prior to the tensioner pulley going bad.

Tension pulley comes off tension arm


If this is a whirlpool product I am guessing you are putting the tension pulley into the wrong holes as there are usually 2 sets of holes next to each other,you want the one closest to the motor shaft so that the belt lines up straight.

Dryer will squeak for about 1 minute when you first start drying the 1st load of clothes...does not do it for all loads after this....why ?


Hi Deb. Your dryer's belt and tension pulley are both on their last legs. Change both and the squeak will stop. If you don't change anything, at some point the dryer tub will stop revolving because the belt will break. If you want to do this repair your self you can go to this link: Searspartsdirect.com

Enter the model number and you will get a complete set of parts diagrams that will show you how to get at the belt and the tension pulley. You can also order the parts from that site.

Gearbox chatter on tick over do they suffer from dualmass problems also is there a quick way to change the cambelt


Dual Mass Flywheel, and will also need new clutch Remove the engine coverUsing a [16 mm], rotate the tensioner arm clockwise (about 14° )and remove the belt from the pulley.
Remove the power steering pump pulley, idler pulley, tensioner pulley and crankshaft pulley.
Remove the upper and lower timing belt covers.

Remove the auto tensioner.
NOTE
Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the timing mark to set the No.1 cylinder's piston to TDC (compression stroke).
At this time, the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and cylinder head cover should coincide with each other.




Unbolt the tensioner to remove the timing belt.
NOTE
If you plan to use the timing belt again, mark the rotation direction on the belt so you reinstall it correctly.

SERVICE MANUAL
Applies to: Santa Fe 2004
GROUP
Engine Mechanical System Timing System



INSTALLATION
Install the idler pulley to water pump boss.
NOTE
Insert and install the idler pulley to the roll pin that is pressed in the water pump boss.


Install the tensioner arm and plain washer to the cylinder block.
Install the tensioner pulley to the tensioner arm.
Install the camshaft sprockets and align the timing marks.

NOTE
When installing the camshaft sprockets, fasten them tightly while holding the hexagonal part of the camshaft.
Before installing the timing belt, if the timing marks of the cam sprocket and the cylinder head cover do not coincide, do not rotate the cam sprocket more than 3 teeth in either direction.
Rotating the sprocket more than 3 teeth may allow the valve and piston to touch each other.
If the cam sprocket is rotated more than 3 teeth unavoidably, rotate the crankshaft counter - clock wise a bit before rotating the cam sprocket.
Install the auto tensioner to the front case.
NOTE
At this time auto tensioner's set pin should be compressed and secured with set pin.




Align the timing marks of each sprocket and install the timing belt in the following order. Crankshaft sprocket--> Idler pulley--> camshaft sprocket (LH side)--> Water pump pulley--> camshaft sprocket (RH side)--> Tensioner pulley.
NOTE
In this step, No. 1 cylinder is in the TDC (Compression stroke).
Be very careful if you use your fingers.



Pull out the set pin of the auto tensioner.



Install the upper and lower timing belt covers.
Install the power steering pump pulley, idler pulley, tensioner pulley and crankshaft pulley.
Using the wrench [16mm], rotate the tensioner arm clockwise (about 14°) and install the belt to the pulley.
Install the engine cover.
How to adjust the tension of the timing belt
Rotate the crankshaft 2 turns clockwise and measure the projected length of the auto tensioner at TDC (# 1 Compression stroke) after 5 minutes.
The projected length should be 6-8 mm.
Verify that the timing marks of each sprocket are in their specified position.
NOTE
If the timing marks are not in their specified position, repeat from 6 above.

4cyl 2000 honda accord engine stalls while idling, recently died and will only start for short periods... possible problems/solutions?


check for spark and fuel after it dies.

If there is spark but no fuel, then the fuel pump may be bad or a clogged fuel filter.

If there is fuel but not spark, then the ignition control module or the ignition coil could be bad.

Also, check that the timing belt is timing the engine correctly.

Have to replace broken belt on a whirlpool awz 7813 tumble dryer and wondered what way the belt runs around tensioners


Double the belt and slide it between the two arms of the tension pulley. Then slip the belt over the drive motor pulley. The belt will be pushing against the tension pulley from underneath.

2001 Chevy venture belt keeps coming off tensioner pulley. Why is this happening?


you most likely have to change the tensioner assembly some people just change the pulley itself but the arm that the pulley bolts to wears out allowing the arm to shift a little bit forcing the belt to walk off the pulley thats why when it comes to changing a noisey pulley its best to change the whole tensioner

How to change serpentine belt


Most are held in place by a tension pulley. It is on a spring load tension arm. It takes a breaker bar to get enough force to move the arm. Pushing/pulling in the wrong direction loosens the nut. Make sure you are moving the tension arm. This will release the tension on the belt and allow it to slip off. Pay close attention to the winding around the various pulleys. When putting on the new one make sure the grooves in the belt get into the correct grooves on the pulleys. A smooth pulley goes against the smooth side of the belt if you get confused. Likewise the grooves on the belt go into the grooved pulleys. Reapply the tension on the tension pulley to slip the belt over the uppermost pulley (should be grooved). Check the alignment before starting the engine.

Whirlpool electric dryer. You push start button, dryer tries to start, tries to turn over, whines and shuts down, locks out and can try again in a few minutes may or may not start that time


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
If you have to check or replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console 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 machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

How do i change a fan belt on a 1994 pontiac grand am v-6


To remove the belt, put a 1/2" drive breaker bar into the receiver on the tensioner and push the bar so it moves the tensioner counter clockwise. Remove the belt and put the new one back on following the diagram on the sticker on the car. If no sticker, before removal, draw yourself one. When putting the belt back on, get everything positioned correctly and again push the bar in the same direction as you did to remove and put the belt back on the tensioner pulley. Check that all pulleys are engaged with the belt properly, start the car and watch the belt for a few minutes checking that no pulleys are wobbling etc. and that belt is running true.

Change a belt?


Replacing the belt is not that hard.
  1. You have to take the back of the dryer off.
  2. Then lift the tension arm on the motor releasing the pressure on the belt.
  3. Inspect the tension pulley, checking the bearings on the pulley.
  4. Wrap the new belt around the drum, and wrap it around the tension pulley, lifting the tension pulley to adjust the belt.
  5. Reinstall the back of the dryer.
