The belt may be worn and squealing because it is slipping.  When it warms up it stops slipping.  It will have to be replaced soon. A worn bearing on a support wheel could also cause intermittent noise.

My 80 series Kenmore Dryer is heating up, tumbling, but my clothes aren't drying. It's taking 6-7 cycles to get anything dry, I have checked the vent hose and everything. All seems to be checking out ok....


You need to check your vent, or your vent system in your dryer. You also need to check to see if your clothes are tumbling. If not then your belt could be broke. Good luck!

My tumble dryer doesn't dry the clothes


Check your breaker - a dryer will spin at 120 volts but needs the full 240 volts to dry. If that's not it, check your vent going outside the house and the hose coming from dryer. If its clogged, that's your problem. If not, you'll have a heating element issue which involves two separate fuses (and the element). Its best to hire someone if it gets to that point. Good luck...

Dryer squeeking while tumbling & leaves black smudge on clothes


it sounds like a drum support roller is going bad or the belt idler pulley. i think maytag has a kick panel on the bottom that can be removed. look inside with a flashlight and you may be able to see something. if not, you may have to take the drum out to get a really good look. make a note and study how the drive belt serpentines around the motor, pulley, and drum so you can get it back together.

My dyer heats and tumbles, but doesn't dry


I'd check first for clogged vent hose or clogged lint filter or clogged vent flap on wall (outside).

If that's not a problem, it may be a faulty thermostat. Heating element is probably okay if it heats some of the time.

More info, let me know.

Mayteg model DE313 clothes dryer that stopped drying clothes.


That is a very accurate assessment of the problem. Check the element for continuity between its two contacts. If there is none, replace it. If there is, look for a fuse on the side with two wires going to it. Test it for continuity. If there is none, replace it.

Clothes dryer


washer dryer and dryer ony machines differ in a huge way. the big diff. is the drums on each are completly different sizes. the conventional dryer has the bigger, giving better air flow and tumble to clothes. the w/d has a smaller drum thus less air flow and less tumble between clothes. the best way to see this effect is remove half the clothes after a wash and then select a drying cycle. u will see that by giving the clothes more room to tumble free of each other rather than tumbling in a large ball will dry them. washer dryers are really only a marketing tool.
