Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

I have a maytag med5770tq0 Dryer that got a shoe stuck when it was drying. When the shoe got stuck, the dryer stoped working. I removed the shoe and now nothing but the light inside the dryer will come on. I have removed the back, but I cannot figure out how to remove the top of the dryer so that I can get inside to where the belt is. I would definitely like to know how to remove the top, and also any suggestions on possible fixes and probable cost. thanks

Here is a couple pictures on the complete disassembly of the top of your dryer - Could be the belt. Belt cost is not to bad if you replace it yourself. The cost to have someone else come out and replace it will vary. Cross fingers the motor did not burn up.Hope this helps.

Maytag model #: med5770tq0 won't dry. Please help


Dear Emily.
Several problems.
First, did this dryer ever work properly hooked up as it is?
I mean hooked to the roof event?
If it used to work just fine, then I suspect the vent to the roof is clogged with lint and is not allowing the heat to escape.
If it never did work right,(for example: it is new to us) then I'd venture dryers are not supposed to vent their hot air that far away, they do not have a strong enough blower to push that air that distance.
Then, you might try to find another place to vent the hot air, with a total distance of only 10 feet from the dryer, even if you only vented it while you were actually drying clothers.
I doubt if the last item is for you, but I have sometimes seen where the washing machine did not spin all the water out of the clothes, and then the dryer needed all day to get the clothes dry.
Be blessed.

Maytag Neptune dryer won't start/


I do not have that specific dryer but try these simple steps.
Maybe they will help you.
1. Shut the electric breaker off to the dryer for about 30 seconds and and back on.
2. Open the dryer door and inspect the switch that tells the dryer the door is closed. work it by hand just to make sure it is not stuck.
3. Spin the timer controls to another setting and see if the other setting will work.

That's all I've got for now...

Thumping noise in atlantis dryer after drying heavy mattress pad


Have you husband do a visual inspection of the drum and literally feel it to see if anything is caught or stuck on the drum. The motor also may have something caught in it as well. This would be the motor that turns the drum.
