Could be overheating. It just may need a good cleaning. and make sure the dryer vent is clear with no obstructions. You may need to take some panels off. Also may be the gas valve solenoid.

How do you install the belt on a Maytag Atlantis Dryer?


Ya gotta remove the front panel to get to the innards on this beast.
Take the door off. Opposite from the door hinges is 2 more screws that are used to hold the goalpost shaped front panel on there. Once them screws is out the panel pops off and you raise the top after removing the holddown hooks.

Need help replacing dryer belt on Maytag MDE9306AYW


Hi, Remove the screws in the door opening. Two screws hold the door hinge but, the door will stay in place. Once you get the screws removed, the front panel will lift off. Once you get the front off, you will see the drum and what it will take to thread the belt around it. Make sure the rib side of the belt is touching the drum and the ribs need to set into the ribbed pulley on the motor. The idler puley is spring loaded and will need to be moved with one hand while you thread the belt with the other hand.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

You need to do a continuity check on the dryer cord. Also manually reset the breakers and make sure you have power (both legs). After this and you still have trouble, do a continuity test on the door switch. The door switch will keep a dryer from operating. After that, you will need to check that your motor is being called to come on. Also check the capacitor and that it is reading the correct microfarad's with in 5%.

Replace dryer belt


Pull the front panel off, remove the top screws and tilt top back. Rout the new belt around drum at the old wear spot with the grooved side against the drum. Next remove the back access door and rout the belt around the idler pulley and motor pulley. There is only one way to do this and get proper tension on the belt.
Also, when you order the belt, ask if it has a belt routing diagram on the belt package.

Take the four screws, out of the door and remove it. The front of the dryer will fold down and lift off, you will be able to see in side the dryer. If you want to lift the top remove the screws that are now exposed. Along with the brackets the top will now lift up.

This should allow you to access the tumbler.

The groaning sound seems as if the belt is broaken and the motor is trying to spin a little too fast because it doesn't have a load on it. Take a look to see if the belt is broken and if so, you can purchase a replacement belt at Lowes for approximately $7.00.
