ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine.
Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical consol with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Serpentine belt not broken but will not run on pulleys engine starts but belt stays still


Did you recently replace the belt? If so, did you get the right belt ( not to short or to long). If not, was there any noise before it stopped moving? If the belt hasn't been touched, then it sounds like another component has seized and isn't allowing the belt to move. You could have oil, transmission oil, or anti-freeze on the belt / pulleys allowing it to slip. Belts become glazed with age and also need to be replaced. I would start with checking all the pulleys for smooth noise free operation, then clean all the surfaces, and change the belt. I like the Goodyear Gator belts.

Maytag bravos washer making a grinding noise. It seems to make this noise when the drum is moving, any suggestions?


Unplug machine and tilt it back. Pull down the white insulation board. remove the two screws holding the white/clear plastic guard in place 5/16 nut driver. and check the gear and belt ours had come off. Now it works just like new you will need a 13mm hex for putting the gear back up.

The dryer was making shrill noises for some time, then a thump noise, now the drum wont turn. I think it is the belt, but the belt is still intact... Where on the drum does the belt go? and what else might...


The belt may have jumped off the tension pulley. Check to make sure the belt is tight around the drum and all pulleys, then check whether all pulleys and rollers turn freely.

My belt on a 1989 suburban is scretching. how do i tighten it?


The drive belt has an automatic tensioner pulley. It will be a pulley on it's own attached to an arm. It'll be the top left pulley under the drive belt if there are only 2 at the top, or it'll be on the top righton top of the drive belt if there are 3 or 4 pulleys across the top.

Check to make sure it is moving freely. You can do this by attaching a wrench to it and moving it down if it is under the belt, or up if it is ontop of the belt. It should require a bit of force. If it doesn't move or is easy to move then it needs to be replaced. If it feels like it's moving freely and the spring seems strong then your belt is stretched past it's limit and needs to be replaced.

Alternatively it may be screeching due to a pulley seizing up. Check to make sure things like the idler pulleys or the A/C and Alternator pulleys move freely.

Tensioner Pulley


LET CAR BE COOL YOU WILL NEED ANEW BELT, OF COURSE. TOOLS: APPROPIATE CUBES AND RATCHED SET. AND AN ADDAPTOR TO FIX RATHED TO THE SQUARE HOLE IN TENSIONER PULLEY. REMOVE UPPER SIDE OF FAN COVER (YOU WILL CHECK PRINTED INFORMATION ON IT TO ORIENT YOU ON THE BELT CORRECT POSITION) RETIRE REST OF THE OLD BELT PLACE THE NEW BRLT ON POSITION AND PLACE THE RATCHED WITH THE ADAPTOR IN THE SQUARE HOLE IN SUCH WAY YOU CAN PULL THE PULLEY WHILE THE BELT IS TAKED TO ITS POSITION. GENTLY RELEASE THE PULLEY AND CHECK BELT IS ALLIGNED IN ALL THE PULLEYS. REMOVE TOOLS AND START ENGEINE. CHECK BELT DOESN'T MAKE STRANGES NOISES OR MOVEMENTS. TURN OFF ENGINE, PLACE THE UPPER SIDE OF THE FAN COVER AGAIN

Ac makes noise after replacing the serpintine belt


Did you check your ac pulley before installing the belt? check for some play on your ac pulley. your ac pulley bearing must have been worn out and needs replacement.
