Check for lint and loose blower wheel. Replace the belt using one hand. Ribs to the drum No twists. Use your left hand to ease the idler over the motor and loop the belt onto the motor pulley. That is how it is done.

My Maytag Performa Dryer model PYG3360AWW wont turn on it just buzzes when I push the start button. what do I do to fix it?


See if you can turn the drum by hand, there should be some resistance. If its locked you will need to disassembly the dryer and see what is binding. If everything(motor,rollers,pullys)spins freely they you most likely have a faulty motor winding and will need to replace it.

When pushing the start button dryer hums but does not spin. when u release start button dryer shuts off


Sounds like a bad motor. Check to make sure the drum isn't stuck, if you can spin the drum put some tape on the door switch and press the start button while you spin the drum. If the drum continues to rotate, you have a bad motor.

My maytag dryer won't start. When I push the start button it makes a "errrrrrr" sound but won't start. Any ideas?


Stuck drum or failing motor. Try turning the drum by hand. It should move fairly effortless in one of the directions. If it does - the problem is in the motor. If it does not rotate - check if something is stuck between the drum and rear or front panel. Good luck Motor part number is 31001589. Replacing it is fairly hard for untrained.

Get a putty knife, release the top by pressing the springclips between the front and top.

Then remove the front. The blower wheel may be the problem. They get loose.
