I own a Magic Chef model YG225LV and the drum stopped spinning. Looks like I need to disconnect the vent and gas lines and open it in back to get to the belt for replacement. Can you confirm that?

Yes, on most dryers that is correct...
There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

Here are a couple of tips that I wrote will help you to figure out why your dryer will not run...

Magic Chef electric dryer YE20HN3 doesn't stop automatically. Timer? Just keeps going and going.

No power (electricity) is getting to the machine.


It would either be a poor wire connection (usually at the terminal block where the cord attaches) or a bad motor that is overheating and shutting down. The motor is part number 2200376 and runs about $140.00.

Dryer stopped working, sounds like timer still running


I suspect it is the thermal fuse. Seen here. You will need to determine what caused it to blow. on these machines the blower wheel is notorious for getting loose and causing the element to over heat. This makes the heating element shut down faster and takes a long time to dry the clothes. 7fc125e.jpg

Magic Chef electric Dryer won't start


Do you have power going to the receptacle. You can first go to your house panel and look for the circuit breaker for the dryer (usually a 30 amp 2-pole brkr.). It could be tripped. So first, put your dryer in the off position. Next, go back to your circuit breaker in your house panel. Turn off the breaker, and then turn it back on. This should reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Then go back and try turning on your dryer. If this doesn't work, feel free to contact me again. However, this would seem to be it. Good Luck to you!

Dryer makes squeaking noise ,then dryer shuts off. mdl.#CYG4000AWW


Hello, sounds like the rear drum rollers are in need of replacement which is causing the motor to get hot and cut out on the thermal cut out. It can be tricky to service if you not handy. Good Luck
