Question about Maytag HYG2460AWW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

I have an LD9334 Dryer with a noise when the drum turns. One of the fins inside has a loose screw and is hitting the top as it goes around. Does the top of the dryer come up or do I have to fix from the bottom?

I fixed mine it by opnening up the gray vent panel in the lower right corner on the rear of the dryer. By spinning the drum, I was able to loom inside with a flashlight and see the loose screws holding the loose baffle in place. I was then able to tighten it.

Inside the dryer there are 3 bars that stick out to help tumble the clothes. One of them has come loose and I'm not sure how to tighten it. It appears to be attached with screws that come thru the drum...


With the front off look up in the top left and right corners for some screws that hold the top of the dryer to the side panels. Depending on your model, there can be different styles. The old maytags used 3/8 in screws up inside the corners and the newer models had 5/16 screws right up front.
Once you get the front of the top loose you will be able to lift it like the hood on a car to gain access to the drum.
Rotate the drum by hand to put your loose fin at the top and tighten up your screws. Sometimes the screws will round out the holes on the drum too much and you may want to put a washer on the screw to secure it better.
Good luck!

When drying clothes, there is a loud banging noise, almost like if the clasp to overalls is hitting the inside of the dryer. Right now I am drying towels, so there is nothing metal or hard that could be...


Hi,

Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight. Loose cabinet screws may cause a banging sound. Make sure nothing is loose inside the drum. Remove the lint trap and look below the lint trap holder for any loose items that may have slipped through the cracks.
Check to see if the drum is supported on wheels or rollers. Sometimes these can wear and require replacement.

Good luck and have a nice day

Fins inside drumare loose


Open the top ... held down with spring clips ... remove the front panel ... probably 2 to 4 screws ... be careful of the wires ... unplug the machine of course. Remove the drum ... but first observe the belt arrangement so you can reinstall. Tighten the 'fins'. Reverse the procedure.

You can use a pry or large screw driver to pop the top. Be careful of the finish.

Sounds like something is loose inside the dry drum


Unplug dryer!!

There should be 2 5/16th screws on the bottom panel in front. Then there are 2 more on bottom of top panel. Take off wires to door switch. Take off 4 screws to front bulkhead. Pull it off. Note how belt goes on. Take it off and pull drum.

I would first rotate drum by hand and see where noise is coming from. If inside one of the baffles in drum, you can easily lossen up screws to remove baffle to get things out.

Repair loose tumbler fin


Pop the top, remove the front, the drum will come free. Take pictures of how the belt goes around the motor. Fix your "fin" and reverse.



The top is held down by spring clips.

Loud bang during dryer rotation. front loaded dryer. dryer is six years old. bang is with evry rotation of drum.


not nkowing what brand, I would guess its a maytag or one of their brands. It sounds like a screw that mounts one of the paddles inside the drum has backed out and is now poking out the out side of the drum hitting the cabnet as it goes around. Un plug it , pop the top open , rotate the drum clock wise by hand slowly to see if a screw is standing up on drum.
If its a whirpool dryer with the lint filter inside the door, the top cabnet is dented down, hitting the drum.
someone sat on the top, bent it down.

Maytag dryer making clanking noise


I had this problem and the cause was a loose screw holding on one of the "paddles" inside the drum. I removed the door, front panel, lifted the top, manually rotated the drum until I saw the screw head which had worked loose and was slapping the side of the dryer. A quick tighten of the screw and the noise was gone.

One of the fin inside dryer drum has come loose,howdo I open top of dryer to tighten fin


Depends on the model. The easiest one's you will be able to insert a small flat head screw driver between the front and the top panel and push on the green clips (a flashlight makes a world of difference here). With this style you just need to install a screw back in the loose fin that keeps it tight. The slightly more difficult style, you have to remove the 2 phillips screws from the door hinges and the 2 screws straight across from them. This will let you get your front panel off (remove by twisting the tops of the panel slightly and pulling) There will be 2 5/16" screws to remove that hold the top down. Same procedure, install screw in the fins to keep them tight. How do I tell which style I have you ask? Simple. If the front panel goes all of the way across at the top, it's the first solution. If the front panel goes about 2 " then the door, then another 2", it's the later plan.Message me back if you are still having trouble.
