Question about Dryers
I have a Maytag DG712 dryer. It sounds like it is popping pop corn. I replaced the drum belt & idler pully. The shaft for the idler pully was shiny no wear and I put bearing grease on the shaft. I thought I fixed it. It was sounding good. But now it's worse than ever. It seems to me to be coming from the motor area. The exhuast air is a strong flow. So could it be a bad motor/bearings, or blower wheeel? Appreciate your help! Thank You, David
You may want to open up the blower wheel housing in the front part of the unit there may be an obstruction in there or a loose blower wheel .Try to move the blower wheel by hand and see if it is loose.If that does not work you may have an object in the inner drum fins or the three tumblers in the the drum.To remove them you need to lift the top and use a 5/16 nut driver .Hope i fixya :)
