Maytag dryer clothes gray soot around the drum and door


Sounds like drum belt is out of alignment and rubbing. Check the rotation/alignment with pulleys and drum. If belt is worn replace it. Hope this helps.

Just replaced the belt & it spins until I put clothes in it?


It sounds like you didn't get the belt tight enough to handle the load of wet clothes. Suggest you use something to put more pressure on the belt while tightening the motor bolts. Although there is a recommended torque for the belt, most technicians don't measure when they replace a belt.

Dryer can't turn on. Start button just buzzes.


replace the "Broken-Belt" switch by the drum motor,when the belt breaks it shuts off the heating element so as not to burn the clothes because the drum can't turn to produce air flow to dry the clothes as they tumble,when you replace the belt it will make the switch close the circuit again and it will start

Here is a diagram from kenmore corp. that should help you out
Maytag Dryer Belt Routing

This is the most common belt routing found on most Maytag brands clothes dryers.

Since you will have everything disassembled to change the belt, this is an excellent opportunity to vacuum out the cabinet to remove dust and lint and perform preventative maintenance on your dryer. When replacing the Belt is is a good idea to also change the Drum Support Rollers, Drum Glides, Idler Pulley and Clips. All of these items are easily changeable when replacing the belt. The upside is that your dryer will operate like new.

Maytag Performa PYE G2200 gas dryer, the dryer seems to turn on but the drum will not turn.


Based on the information provided, it sounds like a broken drum belt is at fault. Below is an illustration of the drum belt.

Here is a parts/disassembly diagram:

Here is a belt installation diagram:
Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

My dryer wont tumble


Your belt is not installed correctly. The weight of the clothes is making it slip.

Maytag gas dryer squealing


Hi, this is a belt issue. make sure the tension on the belt/motor is sufficient. adjust to specs. if the belt is fine, this will be bad bearings in the roller assembly.

Replace the rollers in this case.

Dryer won't turn


The problem is likely a slipping dryer belt. The belt tensioner is not working or the belt needs replacing.

GAS DRYER, JUST REPLACED BELT BUT DRUM WILL NOT TURN WITH CLOTHES IN IT.


My guess: bad motor bearings which let the rotor move off-center and bind.
Usually the motors are not repairable
