Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200
Hi ! I have a similar problem. The dryer heat was working and the drum was turning but the clothes were not drying. I took the back off and found the fan belt was broken. So I replaced that and while the back was off I decided to clean up the dust build up on the fan, the inside of the cabinet and in and around the motor. I used q-tips wetted with wd40 oil to catch and pull out the dust from the motor. Anyway got everything back together but the dryer would only run if you kept your finger pressed on the start button. So I don't know if I bumped something when I was cleaning? Also there was some smoke from somewhere. I wasn't very thick. I think it might be from the wd40 burning off the motor? What do you think?
Replace it ,its known to weaken after awhile,remember this W-D 40 is very flammable ,NEVER spray it near anything that can spark.Also never oil a appliance motor it will only mask the problem for a short time and alot of times it will smoke.Self lubricating bearings are not to be oiled .I'll be happy to guide you through any repairs you need.
