Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

Loud clunking noise in gas dryer, though it was functioning OK otherwise. Afraid it would get worse and really break something, I opened and the belt looks fine. I took out the drum and found that the noise is in the motor, when it turns. What's the likely cause? Bearings? Can it be fixed or does the motor need to be replaced? Is it worth it? Is it OK to just let it run with noise until it dies? I also found that the assembly that holds the idler wheel is loose where it attaches behind the motor, but maybe it's supposed to be.

Could be the serpentine belt rubbing on something, but is probably a bearing problem in the belt idler pulley. However, it could be the power steering pump, AC compressor clutch or generator. As the water pump is at the opposite end of the engine, it's probably not that.

Still turns after opening door


When the door is closed the switch will close, allowing power to circulate through the rest of the circuit. When the dryer door is open the switch will open, breaking electrical contact to the neutral connection of the circuit and stopping the flow of electricity. so it sounds like a bad dryer door switch.

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.

Look inside the drum at the seam, front and back side. The weld on the stainless steel drum may have cracked. You would need to replace part number 3045EL1002F. It is moderatly difficult to replace.
