Unplug dryer and turn off gas. Lift the hinged top of dryer up and prop back far enough on wall so it will stay back. There are some tabs located just under the front of the lid that pop up easily. If not use a flat blade screwdriver and push in gently on tabs to release. Use a flashlight to locate tabs. Un-clip door switch from inside of front panel and set to side. No need to remove the wires from the switch. Remove screws (one on each side) at top front corners of unit that hold the front panel on. Remove front panel and set aside. Get a second set of hands and remove drum by pulling forward and lifting slightly while the second person slides belt off the back of drum. At this point all your components and parts are exposed. My problem ended up being a simple one and I fixed it without cost. There are two rear support pulleys that the drum rides on located at the back of the dryer cabinet. They are white pulleys with black rubber treads. These should spin freely and one of mine was not spinning and causing the dryer to squeal and moan terribly when running. In my opinion it is a design flaw and here is why. Upon closer examination I found that the rubber on the pulley that wears over time got down between the pulley bushing and the spindle it rides on and melted. This caused the pulley to sieze up. It melted due to being located directly above the heating unit. The fix: Remove pulley which is held in place with a snap ring, clean spindle and inside of bushing with denatured alcohol, and reassemble in reverse of dissasembly. Tip: Remove and clean both pulley assemblies while you have the dryer apart. Mine not only had melted rubber on the one above the heating unit but also I found a fair amount of hair around both spindles. I used a bit of graphite on the spindles before reinstalling the pulleys. Also as soon as I removed the drum I found LOTS of lint, hair, and other stuff in the bottom of the cabinet. Get a shop vac or use your home vaccum with and attachment and clean all this out to lessen fire hazard and increase dryer life.**** Make sure your unit is unplugged before doing this.****

MAytag 2300 aww does not heat


If this is a gas dryer it may be the ignitor has failed. There should be a panel you can remove to inspect the burner compartment. Turn on the dryer and look for an orange glow if you don't see any glow the ignitor is probably faulty and should be replaced. If it is an electric dryer it may be a bad heating element. Hope this helps.

The dryer is getting a black soot buidup in dryer that is turning white clothes gray


There are a few things to check here..

Note that from what your describing you dryer should be running hotter than normal also and the burner most likely is being shut off by the high limit thermostat vs the cycle thermostat.

1. Seening soot of any form is a sign that there is an incomplete combustion of the gas. This usually is caused by an air blockage or restriction. Check the following places:

a. The lint filter and the entire area where the lint filter fits.

b. The dryer vent to the wall can be kinked or blocked.

c. The outside flapper vent can have a build up of lint in it that needs cleared.

I think you will find a blockage some where. Just make sure not to use anything sharp when cleaning it out. And a Vacuum crevice tool works great.

If none of the above work repost here and we can go from there.

Rubbing noise


Try checking the glide's under the front of the drum, the drum rest on the glide's to help it spin with little or no friction.

Dryer not starting


Sounds like a bad motor. A DIY job of about 3 hours and $125.00 for a new motor.

Dryers are pretty easy to work on if you have some tech ability and some common sense.
