My maytag performa quiet series dryer just stopped working. I'm pretty sure that it may be the belt. I'm trying to take it apart. I have the front and top off, but do I need to remove the drum and how?

Following this link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, disassembly procedures, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.

You did not provide a model number, and since all models are different, I can only say that the drum does not need to be removed in most cases. Refer to the site link below for disassembly procedures. Note: you will need to enter your model number. This is located on the product data tag, which is affixed to your dryer.


Hope this will provide enough information to you, if not, post me back for more assistance.

MAYTAG QUIET PLUS II DRYER IS SQUEAKING


It seems to me you need a new belt that go over and around the drum in witch you put the cloth first you have to go on line and find the rubber belt to replace it, may need make and modle or part number. you will have to take the top off first by removing the screws and then the front panel - the front panel has the electric on/off switch connected to it so be careful not to pull it apart. The rubber belt fits around the drum and then is attached to the pulley/drive motor. have a vacume handy to clean up the worn off pieces from the damage belt. Reattache the front panel and top of the dryer.

My Maytag Performa dryer is making a horrible sound...still working though. Wondering if it is a belt?? Can I fix myself?


go to Sears and purchase the belt with an idler pulley with it. It comes as a kit. The pulleys bearing has dried out bearing that went flat in spots which causes this horrible noise
the top and the front of your dryer needs to come off to access these parts

Maytag Performa Electric dryer timer is bad


Look up an appliance parts store in your area. If there is no appliance store, try www.searspartsdirect.com.

If it does not turn off during timed dry then it for sure has gone bad. If it takes a while on timed dry then it is most likely that your thermal fuse/ valve coils are going bad.

Maytag Bravos dryer tearing the "felt ring" on front of drum.


Mostly likely the cause was the skid pads came off or were missed aligned. You could have also jarred the drum but it doesnt matter because you want it fixed. So take off the front of the dryer after calling your local maytag dealer and making sure they have the felt, skid pads, belt, and rear rollers (just in case you find more problems).

Once you have this apart make sure you clean it good, take out the lint catcher and vacume all of the lint. No reason to put back together a nasty dirty dryer. Make sure you check the rear felt carefully and the rollers. This is a very simple job and shouldnt take more than about an hour. Make sure you take the door off first then the front panel and you have someone to help hold your tools while you think. Have fun

Maytag electic dryer noise


First, pop up the top of the dryer -- use a large slotted screwdriver under each corner of the top. There will be screws holding the front of the dryer -- take these out and take the front off. The squealing is coming from roller bushings which need lubricating. Apply machine oil to all the axles/bushings -- this most likely will stop the squealing -- and don't forget to unplug it first.
