Question about Maytag MED6400TQ Electric Dryer
I set everything and click start, it goes to sensing and the drum turns a few times with a loud noise then stops. Stays on sensing, timer will go down but thats it. I just changed the plug from a 4 prong to a 3 prong to fit our socket and I bought it used
It sounds like the pullies (drum guides ) need attention the motor is having trouble rotating cause of pressure of not being balanced ,

The following link explains how to connect a power cord to your appliance:
Now keep in mind, some newer appliances REQUIRE a 4-prong plug in order to work properly. You may consider having a four-prong outlet installed to accomodate your dryer.
You can try these steps by referring to to section that discusses converting from a 4-prong to a 3-prong power cord.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Always disconnect electricity before beginning this process.
All the 4 wire cords I have seen are color-coded. The white wire goes to the middle terminal, the green wire goes to any screw you can reach that goes into the metal case of the dyer. The red and black go to the outside terminals of the block and while it doesn't matter which color goes to which terminal I usually follow the color code of the interior dryer wiring that already exists. Good Luck.

NO. YOU HAVE AN ELECTRIC DRIER--THAT REQUIRES A 220 VOLT OUTLET. THE REGULAR OUTLET LIKE A LAMP WOULD PLUG INTO IS A 110 VOLT. IF ALL YOU HAVE IS A 110V OUTLET BACK THERE THEN YOU NEED A GAS DRYER OR HAVE AN ELECTRICTIAN RUN 220V FOR YOUR DRYER.
