Just moved, dryer won't tumble with a load. Error code PF
Just moved and set up dryer, Attached gas line and vent added a load of clothes and machine began clicking when I pressed the start button and showed PF on display. I removed clothes and tried again with the machine empty after a few clicks dryer began to tumble and heated up like normal. Tried the load again and the machine just clicked repeatedly again and wouldn't start up. Could this be a leveling problem or a belt slipping? The tumbler appears to be rubbing inside when I attempt to turn the drum manually. How do I get a look inside the dryer to check the belt?

Did it get tipped in the move? I don't know about the specific model of Maytag, but on my old Kenmore the belt that ran the drum also had a wheel and kind of like a pulley that it had to seated on in order for the belt to stay centered on the drum and turn properly.I don't know how you get the shell off the front to get at the drum, the Kenmore had screws that you had to take out and lift the control panel off and then back to get at the inside. Sorry

pf is power failure because you unplugged it,is it gas or electric,that could be anything,you need to open the door,look around the opening and find the model number and send it,if it is gas you could have bad gas coils located on the gas valve,they will work for the first 15 to 20 minutes and when they heat up they will fail only if they're going bad so the clothes will feel warm but not dry,also you still could have a block in the vent line or in the duct where the lint filter slides into,there's a blower wheel in there that blows the air around,remember all a dryer does is move hot air around to dry the clothes,the easiest way to check the line is to remove it from the back and run it,but first clean out where the lint filter slides into
The control unit on the tumble dryer will vary among
different makes and models. The main purpose of the controls is to allow
the user to select the drying cycle. You can choose the time and
temperature setting on most units, while others allow custom settings
such as moisture sensors and end-of-cycle alert signals. The controls
may include a dial or a touch panel and LED screen display. Some tumble
dryers allow you to independently select the appropriate time for the
load you are drying and separate programs for temperature.
The motor inside the tumble dryer spins the basket to allow
the clothes to tumble while being dried. The tumbling action allows the
air to pass through the clothing to dry them faster. Heating laundry
that is stagnant will likely dry the clothing on the outside while
leaving damp clothing inside the pile. The constant motion, along with
the heat and steam created by heating the clothing, reduces wrinkles.
The motor also powers the fan that delivers the heated air to the basket
of laundry. The heater can be an electrical element or gas powered.
what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know
DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER. RUN ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF THE LOAD DRIES O.K., THE EXHAUST DUCT IS RESTRICTED. CLEAN OUT THE DUCT WORK. IF IT IS FLEXIBLE MATERIAL, REPLACE WITH RIGID METAL DUCT WORK.
