Hello Calvin,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you've described, specifically " will not turn the tumbler itself without starting the turning of the tumbler by hand " indicates the motor is faulty...or at least it may be.

Here's what to look for ( I cannot locate that model number, though I know WTXL is a good start, but since they are made by Bosch this should apply)

Remove the back of the dryer, remove the drum, and clean out the unit thoroughly...especially the motor. It may be just "gummed up" from lint and dirt etc. If it won't start after it is most likely the motor itself, specifically the "start windings".

If you are unsure on how to do this let me know if it is a full size machine or the compact and I have directions for either one.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I bought it in 2003 neptune dryer and the 3 bar inside the dryer broke and the dryer is not working right . we have to dry them 3 time before they are all dry


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Phillips-head screwdriver
* Replacement belt

1. Disconnect the power cord of the Maytag Neptune dryer from the dryer electrical outlet.
2. Open the dryer door, and locate the four screws on the inside lip of the door opening. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the four screws. This will disconnect the front panel from the shroud assembly.
3. Grab the front panel on each side with your hands. Lift up on the front panel to unhook it from the retaining tabs on the side panels. Remove the front panel, and set it out of your way.
4. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the four outside perimeter screws that secure the shroud and tumbler front to the dryer cabinet. Pull the shroud and tumbler front away from the tumbler while lifting the top panel partially up.
5. Reach both of your hands underneath each side of the tumbler. Use your left hand to grasp the idler pulley, and pull it to the left while using your right hand to slip the belt off the motor pulley. Pulling the idler pulley to the left releases tension on the belt. You can now slip the belt off the back of the tumbler.
6. Take the old belt with you along with the model number of your dryer to purchase a new belt. Most appliance repair shops will have replacement belts in stock. Make sure that the new belt matches the old one by comparing the two.
7. Slide the new belt over the rear of the tumbler with the ribbed side pointed to the inside. Using both hands under the tumbler, route the belt around the motor pulley and idler pulley. Pull the idler pulley to the left while routing the belt, and carefully allow the idler pulley back to the right to apply tension.
8. Reattach the tumbler front and shroud to the front of the cabinet using the retaining screws. Place the front panel over the side retaining tabs, and push it down to lock it in place.
9. Open the dryer door, and secure the front panel to the shroud using the retaining screws. Close the dryer door, and plug the power cord back into the dryer electrical outlet.

Hi i went into my dryer and pushed the tumbler the wrong way and heard something pop and now the tumbler doesnt rotate how do i get to the belt this dryer is very old but looks like this one .thank you oh...


You broke the belt. To replace it, pop the top ... use a screw driver. Remove the screws at the top of the front, remove the front, the drum will fall free. Take Pictures.

Tumbler belt came off


  • Unplug your dryer from the electrical outlet. Remove the lint trap by lifting its cover and sliding it out. Use a screwdriver to unscrew the two screws that hold in the housing of the lint trap.Lift up the top panel of the dryer and take off the holder for the door switch wire. Look for the screws that hold in the front panel of the dryer, located on top of the front panel, and unscrew them. Take the panel off the dryer by lifting it off.Look inside the dryer, find the broken dryer belt, and before taking it off, note the way it is routed around the pulleys, then take it off. Install a new Whirlpool dryer belt by slipping it around the tumbler with the grooves facing the surface of the tumbler. Ask an assistant to hold up the tumbler while you move the belt into the proper place, aligned with the black line around the width of the tumbler.Wrap the new dryer belt around the pulleys as noted in Step 3. If you don't remember how, or the old belt was snapped and not aligned properly, look at the dryer belt diagram in your user's manual.Align the front panel of the dryer with the tumbler. Put back in the two screws that hold the panel in place. Open the door of your dryer and with your hand, turn the spinner one time counterclockwise. Reconnect the holder for the door switch wire, being careful that it doesn't touch any moving parts.Use the screwdriver to carefully position the rubber seal along the back of the tumbler. Make sure the seal is on the outside of the tumbler and that none of it sticks to the inside of the tumbler.Slide the lint filter and housing back into place, and screw in the two screws that hold it in. Plug the cord of the dryer back into the electrical outlet and check that it spins properly.

    Problem with Miele Touchtronic T 9800 Dryer end indicator


    You've most likely got a bad control board. You'll have to install a new one which can be a bit expensive but cheaper than a new machine by far. I recommend getting a service tech to replace it for you however if your handy you could replace it yourself. Just get the new control board from an appliance parts store, they should be able to look up which board you need as long as you bring them the model number.

    Dryer makes a grinding type noise as it drys. i


    Depending on the kind of grinding noise your hearing, it could be a number of things.If your dryer has been doing this for quite a while it could be that the front and/or rear felt have become worn or broken. if these are gone the drum will make contact with the inner rim of the door and the back portion of the dryer part number for both front and back tumbler seals is 33001807. If however the noise you are hearing has just recently and suddenly happened, this could indicate that possibly something has got caught inside the these same felts or seals. If the noise you are hearing is more of a loud buzzing this could indicate that something has obstructed the blower wheel inside the dryer, and is now rubbing against the fan blades of the fan. part number for the blower fan can vary depending on your SERIAL number. If you want to take a look insaide your dryer. FIRST UNPLUG IT. then with the door removed there should be two screws at the bottom of your unit. once removed you can now remove the "U" shaped bracket around the base and door. now you will be able to see inside. if you need to lift the top there are two screws at the left and right sides that hol brackets to the top. remove these and you now have access to the whole dryers drum, heater etc. Hope this helps

    Thanks

    Electric dryer makes a rumbling when tumbler is turning.


    Check the drum bearing, a load noise, and often spinning problems are symptoms of a bad drum bearing.The bearing is at the base of the drum and accessing it is not easy.

    You can find diagrams and replacement parts entering model number here.

    Loose Tumbler Fin In dryer


    most maytag dryers have push type clips that hold the top to the front. look between the top and front with a light and find them about 3-4 inches from the outer edges. once you get the top up then there will be screws that hold the drum baffles to the drum. just put a new screw in them and all will be ok. no need to replace them, just use new screws.
