When return button is pushed, it drags and makes a scraping noise. Do not see anything obstructing return. Have cleared margins, unplugged, checked ribbon and wheel. Nothing works.

Put a little shot of WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on. If that doesn't do it you will have to psome on the carrier motor bearings it is under the case on the R. rear corner. You can reach the front one from inside the cover but the rear you will have to remove cover or fish the straw thru it.

Maytag performa electric dyer makes dragging noise drum turns but acts like something catches and makes a dragging or scraping sound


assuming nothing is stuck around drum pull off the front and check the fan. If it is noisy for a few seconds after you stop the dryer then the fan may be stripped on motor shaft. while off you can check the front glides and the rear rollers

CHECK ENGINE NUMBER IS P0102


Mass Air Flow sensor on the collar immediately behind the air cleaner on the air ducting has a fault. Plug and unplug it a few times to see if freshening the contacts helps any. To clear the code disconnect he negative lead from the battery for about 5 minutes, this should clear it. If the code returns then consider replacing the MAF. Inspect the MAF components to make sure there is no obstruction or dirt on any of the components in the air stream. If there is some evidence of dirt etc. then clean these off with electrical (non residue) spray cleaner, do not physically touch anything with we finger or cloth

How do you clear a tab someone preset. when I get to the far right of page and hit return it will on return to a tab. How do I clear all the preset margins or tabs.?? thanks


To clear margins, you have to hit the return button to find the left margin, then hit margin release and back space to move the margin left or spacebar to move to the right, then hit left margin button to set the new position. Right margin now. Hold spacebar down and find right margin position, hit margin rease and either spacebar to the right or backspace to the left to the new margin position then hit right margin button to set the new position. Tabs now. hit the tab key, when it goes to the first set tab, hit the tab clear key, then hit the tab key again, then tab clear again etc.

IBM Selectric II-return goes past the margin stop


The margin release mech. is probably gummy and allowing returns to go past the margin. If thi is a dual pitch machine see if the pitch selector lever will move easily. If not use some WD40 on the margin rack.

It sounds like the left margin is set in the middle of the page, return to the stopping place, press margin release then backspace to the place where you wany the left margin and press l. margin key.

If that dosen't do it remove the batteries and unplug the machine for a minute or two all settings will go to defalt. CAUTION ALL THE MEMORY WILL BE CLEARED!!!
