Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer
I want to stop the belt from squeeking and I thought I would put a little wd40 on the pulley.
These are not the "same" problem.
1. The squeak typically will be from dryer fuzz getting into the mechanism. If you MUST spray WD40 then watchout where you spray it. If you get it on the belt then the belt will degrade and break in a very short period of time. If you spray WD40 on electronics they will probably short the electronics. It may also be a worn out pulley or motor bearing.
2. You must remove the pulley bolt on many dryers, place the belt on the pulley and then thread the bolt back on the arm or nut.
3. Most of the Maytag washers you must remove the doors first and then there are clips that hold the frame together. They are "pop off" with a scredriver and a bump with a gloved hand.
4. see 3. to get the cabinet off. If it sounds like a bearing then it probably is and you will have to replace the pulley and integrated bearing. It may also be a worn-out motor bearing (replace the motor).
