Question about Maytag Dryers
Maytag SDE4606AYW Clothes Dryer
We just opened up the front of our dryer and cleaned it out. There was a lot of lint a debris inside the dryer as well as in the blower. We put it back together and now the drum isn't turning normally. It will spin fine until we put clothes in it. It will barely turn with the clothes - but when the weight of the clothes are removed - it turns properly. Wondering if we disturbed the settings for the pully system? How do we remedy this? Thanks in advance!
Make sure the drum belt is positioned properly. You may have disturbed it when you removed the front door panel. It should be a tight fit on the drum. You should see the wear pattern on the drum where the belt was. Check the condition of the belt and make sure it's not cracked or stretched and slipping. Did you disconnect any wires when you opened it? Double check that you didn't rehook the wires wrong and make sure the door sensor switch is in proper position. Hope that helps.
