Cloth not dry


Check for a build up of lint in the exhaust duct, an excessive build up will block air flow.

Also 220VAC electric dryers use different legs of the electrical supply. (two 110VAC legs tied via a common neutral make 220 VAC) One 110VAC leg runs the motor and controls while the other supplies power to the heater.

It is possible that one side of the 220VAC has a blown fuse and is not supplying power to the heater element.

Other possibilities:

Blown out heater - requires replacement

There is a safety switch attached to the shaft of the motor. THis switch relys on centrifical force to close and is intened to kill the power to the heater if the motor and its attached blower stop turning.

If the motor is not turning fast enough of the switch is worn then it is possible that power to the heater circuit is not being completed. It doesn't take must of a speed reduction to cause a problem. Lint build up on the drum bearings can cause enough drag to slow the drum slightly. Combined with a worn/dirty switch and the switch fails to operate.

Finally there is a blower attached to the motor shaft. The blower is made of plastic and somtimes the blower comes loose on the shaft. Usually you hear a rattling sound or sounds after the dryer drum stops as the loose spinning blower spins to a stop. ( A tight blower stops with the dryer drum) A loose blower doesn't move enough air and causes your dryer to run longer.you can find about uniforms: https://www.mysocceruniform.com/customsocceruniforms.html

Maytag electric dryer drum starts and stops turning but keeps going


Hello,
I would think you are on the right track, possibly a belt, I would also check all the rollers or idlers while you are replacing the belt.
Enjoy and best wishes

We have a MMDE9206AYM model dryer that makes a low humming sound but will not start. Last night it also produced a burning smell. I assume either the belt is gone or the motor is overheating although it...


Sounds like drum is locked and motor is running and burned the belt. Try to spin drum by hand, Might check drum ends felt seals, Teflon bearing strips located on the bottom lip of front drum end for wear causing drag. Also check 2 drum support wheels to see if they spin freely, take the belt off motor pulley and spin drum by hand, if easier & motor runs drum is dragging. How is the spring on tensioner, does tensioner pulley spin free? Hope this helps locate the problem.

Maytag performa electric dyer makes dragging noise drum turns but acts like something catches and makes a dragging or scraping sound


assuming nothing is stuck around drum pull off the front and check the fan. If it is noisy for a few seconds after you stop the dryer then the fan may be stripped on motor shaft. while off you can check the front glides and the rear rollers

Today our dryer quit drying. It hums but is not tumbling.


Dryers are belt driven. Something has locked the drum or motor, and that is why you hear the humming sound. With the dryer turned off, reach inside the drum and try to turn it. It should turn pretty freely. There will always be some drag. If you need a lot of effort to turn the drum, then it is time to investigate what is causing the drag. Probably, something has gotten wedged between the drum and the front wall of the dryer.

If you cannot find anything there, then it could be helpful to remove the outer shell from the dryer and investigate further to find the source of the drag. This requires some mechanical skill, so think carefully if you want to try it or call a service company or simply replace the dryer. A used dryer can cost $100 or less.

My maytag dryer makes a loud noise when on. It sounds like a belt. Can I fix it and how? It's an older model, I don't know where the model number would be. It's loudest when first turned on. Thankyou


To remove the belt go the the rear of the dryer and remove the two or four screws holding the inspection door near the bottom corner of the dryer.Remove this small door. Unplug the dryer. Look inside and see how the old belt is positioned on the pulleys. Releive the tention on the belt by moving the belt tentioner and sliding the belt off the motor pulley.
Go the the front of the dryer and remove the two screws holding the front panel on. Tilt the dryer front forward and remove. Mark and remove the two door switch wires and move the front panel out of the way. Undo the four screws holding the drum support from the front of the dryer and remove. Grab the drum and sllide it forward out of the dryer.
Vaccum the inside of the dryer and inspect to make sure the rollers move freely. If they don't move freely or show wear, replace rollers and lubricate with light oil. Replace belt.
Put belt over drum. Reinstall the drum into the dryer. On some of the older dryers there were teflon drum gliders located inside the front drum support. Inspect glides and replace if needed.
Reinstall the front drum support and four screws. Reinstall the front panel with two screws.
Replace door switch wires.
Lift the top and make sure the belt is positioned on the drum where the old belt was.
Go the rear of the dryer and pinch the belt sliding threw the belt tentioner under the pulley and over the belt pulley.
Reinstall the rear door with all the screws.
Faster the top down and plug the dryer in and test.
Your done.

My maytag dryer won't start. When I push the start button it makes a "errrrrrr" sound but won't start. Any ideas?


Stuck drum or failing motor. Try turning the drum by hand. It should move fairly effortless in one of the directions. If it does - the problem is in the motor. If it does not rotate - check if something is stuck between the drum and rear or front panel. Good luck Motor part number is 31001589. Replacing it is fairly hard for untrained.

Amana Dryer will not work,will not stay on,makes funny noises


during the process of moving your dryer, it sounds like the drum became dislodged. With the dryer off, open the door and try to move the drum by hand, if it sounds like something is 'dragging' them the drum is off its bearings. IF it is, the quickest way to get help to take it apart is go online to youtub, type in your dryers name and model number and ask how to replace drum
