SOURCE: My Maytag dryer buzzes when I push the start

Remove the belt from the motor and push 'start'. If the motor makes loud noises, squeals, or the shaft has side play in several directions, then it probably is the motor. Replace it. If the the motor runs quietly, then check the drum by hand to see if it is making excessive noise while turning. There should be a little resistance to turning, but not real difficulty. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My son's maytag dryer heats up but the drum wont

The belt would not be the normal cause for this. the contacts in the motor may be dirty.check the motor and if there is any lint built up on the motor then bry and vaccum or blow all the lint out of the motor,if this does not solve you issue then the start winding in the motor have fone bad and you need to replace the motor.

My Maytag gas-electric dryer just developed a problem. You can't 'start' it. When you hit the Start button, it clicks on only for the time you are holding it In. When you release it, the dryer...


All I can tell you is that usually when you have to hold the push to start switch has to do with a relay or the motor itself. Some push to start switches have a relay incorporated. I would first check to see if your machine has a belt safety switch, either belt is broken or the switch is bad/tripped or not aligned with the idler pulley correctly, it will be located on the motor and have two little buttons on it, one is a reset the other is to trip it. Hope this helped Tim

Maytag DE303 Dryer


first check and make sure the power breaker is on. next the door when it closes there is a safety switch normaly there is a small hole around the frame of the door. when you push on it, you shoud hear a clicking noise. if you don"t, that switch will prevent the tumbler from turning another thing is the belt that goes around the tumbler if it's loose or broken the tumbler will not turn. that can be checked by accessing the bottom panel in the back the belt should be tight. good luck!

Gas dry is not heating enough to dry clothes


There is two possible causes. Either your gas coils are going bad late in the cycle or your venting is restricted. I would go outside check to make sure you have good airflow. If you have good airflow outside the only common cause of gas dryers failing to heat late in the cycle would be gas coils. If you have a peep hole on your dryer look in it after your dryer has been running for approx 30 mins and see if the ignitor glows and then shuts off. If the burner does not kick on then you have bad gas coils. They are part number 5303931775.

Let me know if this helps _MJ_

MAYTAG DRYER LDE4914ACE BELT CHANGE


The belt goes around the pully so that the pully tension takes the slack out of the belt. Just like the serpentine belt on your car.
