In my Maytag dryer model SDE305DAYW the heating element works; however, the tumble drum stopped moving. What's wrong?


This sounds like the drum's drive belt broke. But also ensure there isn't a problem with the drive motor. Do you still hear a motor running when you turn it on? If so, you'll need to replace the drive belt.

I hope this helps! :)

Are you sure that you hooked the belt up correctly, as it sounds like you may have missed the tensioner pulley. As this will tighten the belt around the middle of the drum

Thump


The drive belt broke and the thumping was caused by a flatten roller on the belt tensioner. Replace the tensioner pulley and the belt to get it running like new again

Dryer blows air, but the tub inside the dryer does not turn. What is the most likely problem?


The belt has broke. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the replacement. You might have to watch a different video for disassembling your model. Enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model.

I think belt broke need to replace


Go to maytag.com then service and parts then use and care manuals then model no. hopefully you can find info. there if not call customer care 800 number. Most times you have to remove the top of dryer then the front to get to the belt. You will have to locate what type fasteners it uses some use a snap lock type fastener others use screws.

I dont think you broke the belt, I think it may have just come off the belt tensioner. Take the bottom of the back panel off and I think you will see it hanging in there. Just put er back on.

Maytag Electric Dryer - replace belt


The belt needs to be above the metal. Otherwise the repair looks good. Easy fix. Thanks for the pic.
