The first place is to check you incoming power a dryer will rotate but wont heat if ony one leg of the 220v pwr is coming in do you have a meter to test ?? you can also go to the breaker panel turn off and back on the breaker as a weak breaker will do this if you have done this and still no heat you will need a meter to check some things also if you remove the 3 screws on the panel between the washer and dryer you will see the element.Make sure to turn the pwr off before touching any wire connections..Let me know what you come up with

My maytag dryer is making horrible squealing and scaping sounds. What is probable problem and how do I fix it? I have dryer out but see no access to front panel.


hi the noise you hear is going to be the drum bearing it sounds like it has collapsed and will need replacing if your is the model shown in the picture then its the back of the dryer you need to get to you should then see the center of the drum and this is where the bearing is located its not an easy job to replace and if any damage has been done to the part where the bearing runs on the drum then this would mean any new bearing you put in would also not last very long so if their are scratch marks or sharp edges then this means the drum will also need replacing.

if you remove the back and take the drive belt off then try turning the drum with the belt off you should feel its a bit tight or you should feel it grinding, you could actually try doing that now open the door and try turning the drum by hand and see if you can feel the grinding.

the bearing will need replacing and possibly the drum depending on how much damage has been done to the drum due to the bearing collapsing,

if your doing the job yourself then you may need special pullers to pull the bearing casing off as the chances are this has been welded to the spline due to the heat caused by the bearing falling apart, its not an easy job to do but it can be done.

The dryer heats good but my whispering appliance now squels


The roller bearing on the belt's tensioner is at fault. Replacing the roller is the first step and also replace the belt too

Clothes getting caught between drum and front of dryer


Hello Friend, This problem is real common in Hotpoint/GE dryers. Your solution is simple. You need to replace the front drum bearing and glider pads. It's actually pretty simple to do. Just remove front of dryer cabinet. After removal just look at backside of dryer front around the inner door. You will see where the dryer drum has turned and wore a hole in the plastic piece above the dryer door. This piece is called the front drum bearing. Just unsnap this piece and snap in a new one. Be sure to replace the little plastic glide pads onto the top of the drum bearing before re-installing the dryer cabinet front. The front drum bearing and glider pads are sold seperately so make sure you have everything you need before you begin. This should solve your problem. Happy to help, Tim. Thanks.

Drum making sqeaky noise


The squeak is the rear bearing mount rubbing on the hanger ball. The plastic bearing is gone and that metal piece is cutting a groove into the ball mount. I have a picture. If the ball will be cut off and the drum will fall into the heating element and the belt will break. Not good!
8a3a785.jpgTo get to this bearing you must pop the top and get the belt loose,lift out the drum and inspect the bearing. The kit is fairly reasonable.This is something that a DIYer can easily handle.

The bearing or spindle the drum rotates on is probably bad or worn out. You can get to the back and turn it by hand and feel it when you turn it. You can tell if it is metal rubbing. If so, you can replace it.
