Question about Dryers
Maytag Neptune MDG3000AWW
drum moves very slowly when on = clothes not drying
1) I tried removing some of the clothes thinking maybe the load was too heavy; did not solve
2) I opened up the exhaust hole in the back to see the motor wheels spinning, but the belt not "catching"...
Do I need to replace the belt? Or is the drum gummed up somehow and not spinning freely enough? How can I tell?
If the belt looks worn you should replace it. But it sounds like the idler pulley has gone out of position or possibly broken. The idler pulley adds tension to the belt and keeps it from spinning on the drum surface. Check the path of the belt on the bottom of the dryer. That is where the idler pulley is.
