I have had to replace the blower wheel on my Maytag Performa Dryer twice in the past 2-3 months. The wheel when removed looks as though it is being ground down. Could there be something else wrong?


Just check that the dryer vent out the back hasn't been pushed into the machine. Sometimes when the dryer is pushed against a wall the vent can be pushed back into the machine somewhat, which will in turn push the blower wheel housing forward and deform it slightly, causing the blower wheel to rub on the housing.

I looked up your model. The blower wheel on these 31001317
causes the dryer to over heat. The fuse kit LA-1053 mounts here:e930c75.jpg

Maytag Performa Dryer doesn't heat up properly. Takes 2 to 3 cycles to dry clothers. Recently changed elements. Maybe a little better but not much. Any ideas?


I replace an awful lot of blower wheels on these. The flat portion of the plastic blower melts causing the wheel to be loose on the shaft. I have repair photos HERE
I pop the top and remove the front, then remove the old blower wheel and clean out the dryer, oil the rollers and idler and check the glides for wear. When I gits that baby back together it be sweet.

Dryer making loud squeaking noise


Check the following:
  1. Idler pulley - It keeps tension on the main drive belt and when it is worn, it can be squeaky and noisy. Replace then.
  2. Glides - Attached to the front bulkhead of the clothes drum for support. When worn, it can be noisy and squeaky.. Replace then.
  3. Rollers or wheels - They support the clothes drum. When they are are worn, you should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.
  4. Blower wheel - It pulls air over the heat source through the clothes drum past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. It may wear out over time. If it is noisy, it may be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you need to replace it.

I have a maytag performa dryer model #pdet920ayw and when i turn it on it squeels.


Below are some links, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, that will assist you in diagnosing/repair of your dryer. You may have to enter your model number in the search box to access some of the information.

Below is a parts breakdown/disassembly procedure for your dryer.
http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Electric-Maytag-Style-Appliance-Diagram


The most common cause of a squeal is the drum roller, of which there are 2. It is usually a good idea to replace both rollers, roller shafts and drum belt at the same time, as they have a tendency to wear at the same rate. You must also use the proper lubricant on the roller shafts, (Syl-Glide), or you will have a recurrence of the squeal.

1. Drum Roller Image

If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

Maytag Performa Electric Dryer Won't Start


check the blower wheel, sounds to me like it is loose on the blower motor, common on these dryers. One sure sign would be a warped filter and a rusted top. The blower aint putting out enough and the dryer is over heating .
