Question about Maytag Dryers
Posted by Anonymous on
Bearings are going out and they will quit completely if not changed sooner than later .
Posted on Apr 06, 2015
The dryer drum rotates on two rollers towards the back. The bearings in these rollers dry out and freeze up or barely turn. The drum then bumps around on them making noise. Unplug the dryer. Remove the front panel by removing two screws on lower end and lift panel back and up so top comes out. Remove the frame (4 screws) holding the drum and fan cover. Unplug electric wires from door switch. Carefully pull the drum out a few inches, look thru the back of the drum and record on paper the threading pattern of the belt on the pulleys to the lower left of the drum. Continue removing drum and belt. Take the clips off of the two rollers that the drum was rolling on back there. Remove the two rollers and clean the bearing surface and shaft. Lube the two surfaces with suitable oil or grease. I use silicone grease. Also remove belt idler pulley and lube bearing surface. Reassemble all. To put belt on, hang it on the drum, slip the drum in 3/4 of the way, reach thru the drum and thread the belt on the drive and pulley correctly. Ease the drum onto the two rollers in back, rotate the drum while easing the belt into proper running position. You should be able to fit the front roller frame into the cloth lined channel, then replace the front panel. Plug it back in. Try it! Don't mess with it with the power on.

Drum support rollers. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

How old is this dryer? If it is older that 15 years get a new one. You don't want to deal with the headaches. The motor may be going bad on it and the wiring could be melting. I assume it is not working now. Have him check the breakers. Make sure the connections are o.k. in the back. Clean out the lint piping and look for lint underneath it as well.

Hello. It sounds like an issue with either the motor or a component in the motor drive subassembly. Go to http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php and enter your model number. Two versions will pop-up, but both share the same parts. Scroll-down on your left side for the motor drive section and then on you'll see an illustrated picture of all the parts there. I doubt it's the main motor, but the sealed bearings could be dried-up and needs to be repalced, but I'm leaning more towards a worn-out gear
