HI. I suspect that your belt has failed. If you can clearly hear the motor running, but the drum dose not spin, this will confirm that your belt will need to be replaced or re-applied.

Use this instructional video to help gain access to the belt for inspection:

The dryer drum belt has broken and you need to remove the top and front cover to replace this belt

    if the drum belt isnt broken,then it could be the idler pulley that keeps tension on the drum belt to turn the drum,or the drum motor isnt running either no power from the control board or the motor is bad

My Maytag Performa Dryer model PYG3360AWW wont turn on it just buzzes when I push the start button. what do I do to fix it?


See if you can turn the drum by hand, there should be some resistance. If its locked you will need to disassembly the dryer and see what is binding. If everything(motor,rollers,pullys)spins freely they you most likely have a faulty motor winding and will need to replace it.

Maytag washer squeaks when spin cycle stops


We have a Maytag Performa G3300 that we bought on 8/13/2001. It still works great, but on 2/25/10 it stopped heating. We found that by removing the front panel and vacuuming the accumulated lint on the inside of the dryer and the door, the problem was resolved. There were no parts to replace, just vacuuming.

Dryer will not turn


There is a belt like a fan belt that goes around the outer tub and onto a pulley that turns the tub, it may have slipped off, you should be able to take the top off of the dryer to check it.

Maytag performa runs no heat how do I access the heating element?


Well if it runs then the fuse is ok so what you need to do is pop the top and check the high limit thermostst and heating element located at the rear of the machine. The top on most of these machines comes up easilty if you use a putty knife or five in one. Be sure to disconect the power source. a12fee1.jpg

Dryer Drum Won't Spin


Reach inside and grab ahold of the baffle. Try to spin the drum, it should have resistance. If it spins freely you have a broken belt. Hope that helps. Dave ww.washermd.com
