Maytag Stacked W/D SE 1000

THe dryer motor humms and then stops when I try turning on the dryer. It gives off that ozones motor smell. I think the tumbler mechanism is jammed. How do I get to the motor to fix it? Coming at it from the front of the machine the lint trap is in the way.

    Thanks for the reply. I finally got fed up and opened the front of the machine and figured out how to get the motor out. That's all I needed to know from this site. Took the motor to my local independant repairman to see if he had a used one in his bin. He didn't so I ordered a new one on tthe web for $126.00 + s/h. Its cheaper than a new machine.

Had the exact same problem. Just had a repairman look at it. I need to replace the motor. Probably won't.

Maytag model 2400 stack dryer has error code 3e motor hums but wont spin the tub to dry clothes-also an electrical smell like burned motor windings

Either the motor has gone out, the transmission has locked up or if it is a direct drive system there could be something in the pump that is binding the motor preventing it from turning therefore causing it to over heat giving you the electrical smell.

The dryer work sometimes and sometimes it don't...meaning it will spin sometime and sometime it won't

More information needed.
If you push the start button, do you here a loud humm and /or the lights dim down? Do smell a electrical smell? Do you here a click after a while?
Or do you hear the motor come on, but the drum does not come on.

Maytag Neptune Dryer smells like burning rubber or plastic...

The drum belt could be rubbing on something inside. Does the dryer make a squeeking noise? Se if there are small rubber particles on the bottom, this will indicate a deteriating belt.
