Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

I moved my Maytag DE313 out of the laundry room for renovation. After I moved it back, funny sound like loud hollow metal sound and electric arcing sound appeared then the dryer will stopped and cannot be started again. I can restart only after I turned the breaker off and on, then the same thing happened. Can you help? Thank you.

    Thank you for your advice mark1468,
    Actually there was nothing wrong with the dryer. I re-wired the dryer outlet wrong :(.
    The old one was chipped so I got a new one and crossed wired it so that the motor is getting 220 volts and the heating coil is getting 110, so the funny sound was coming from the motor.

Somehow, you have a wire that is gounding to the cabinet which poses high risk of electrical shock to yourself and others.

Disconnect power and call a proffesional servicer. it is for your own safety.

My LGfront end loader washing machine is shaking so bad it actually walks across the laundry room 3 -4 feet

I had the same problem when my LG WD-8074FHB was new. LG recalled them and put a larger weight in them. The weight is a hollow piece of plastic filled with concrete in the top of the machine under the cover. It stopped it moving around the laundry.

I have a Maytag dryer which uses gas for drying,but I moved to a new house where gas is not availlable in the laundry room,what should i do?

unfortunately not much you can do short of hiring a pipe fitter to run a gas line to that location or getting an electric dryer. determine which is cheaper I guess. Unless you have a pipe fitting friend.

good luck

Dryer was running with full load of clothes. Heard a loud pop twice, ran back to the laundry room and smelled like something burning. Turned dryer off, and now it won't start back. Also, the very top of...

Well it sounds like a sound I have heard... forgetting that I had a cigarette lighter in my pocket and having it explode from the heat in the dryer. But you say you heard two loud pops?

Once everything cools down, check again and report back... does the dryer not turn on at all? Does the light come on when you open the door? Does it buzz when you push the start button? Stuff like that.

I have a Legacy gas dryer. I find lint all throughout the laundry room. Always clean front filter befor use and also cleaned discharge hose.

It sounds like the exhaust tube is leaking somewhere inside the dryer.

If you've checked the discharge hose and wherever it connects to, on both ends, while it's running, then the leak must be inside the dryer, which can be a fire hazard.

It's not too hard (if you have the room) to take the back off of the dryer and look at the ducting. Be extra careful not to put your tools or hands near the electrical connections.

Once you've found the leak, separated pipes, etc., if it is inside, you can seal it with metal flashing tape - the very shiny "chrome" looking tape. Don't use cloth duct tape if you want the fix to last more than 6 months.
