What you can try is to open the case surrounding the self-propelled drive and make sure that the belt has not either slipped off or has broken. Depending on the model, the case has two or four screws securing it to the frame of the mower. If the belt has slipped off, you can unscrew the tension screw and slip the belt back on and then tighten the tension screw so that there is enough tension on the belt to keep it from slipping off.
If the belt has become broken, you can purchase a new one from Lowes or Home Depot for approximately 15.00. The change out procedure is pretty straight forward and shouldn't take longer than 5-10 minutes.
If the belt is fine (not loose or broken) it could be a gear problem in the drive wheel, in that case you are in a little bit more trouble than simply replacing the belt.
Sounds like the drive belt is either broken or slipped off of the drive pulley. You will need to ope it up and check. If that is the case, a new belt (ordered from Maytag) will get it working again. Most dryers are opened by removing the entire front panel, door and all. Once that's removed, you should see the drum, and below it somewhere, an electric motor. There should be a belt going from that motor around the entire drum. If that's not there, you need a new belt.
Remove the screws on the back case don't for get the one where the spare bulb is kept. Also remove the two screws that hold the power cord retainer in place. This will allow you to completely remove the cover from the unit. How ever the tricky part will be replacing the belt because you will have to remove the drive shaft in order to get the new belt over the pulleys. If the belt is not broken and just slipping try cleaning it with alcohol. It worked for me but I found two idler wheels had disintegrated in the clutch assm. Good luck.
With mine, it was the drive belts for the cd drawers, which were stretched and rigid.
Open the case. Remove the 4 screws that hold down each cd drive. Push the drives out enough so you can pull the silver facing off the sliding try by pulling it up. Now you can lift out the cd drives, removing all the connectors as you go.
Flip the white plastic slider underneath each drive and you can mechanically open the slide tray. This reveals the little motor and rubber pulley belt that operates the slide tray. If the belts are broken, perished, rigid or something, get something similar from your local electronics parts store (a couple of bucks each belt), and reassemble.
The drive belt is broken or the motor's rotor is stuck. Open the door and rotate the drum manually. The drive belt is worn or broken if you can freely rotate the drum. The rotor is most probably stuck if you cannot turn the drum.
Visual check can be done by removing the back panel. Remove the screws holding it to the cabinet and pull it off. Replace the belt if it is worn or broken. Simply wrap it around the drive motor pulley and on one side of the drum pulley. Rotate the drum pulley in such a way that the belt completely wraps around it.
Try to free the rotor if it's stuck by lubricating it and forcibly turning it back and forth until it turns freely. To remove the motor, disconnect the motor wiring harness and ground wire from the terminals and remove the mounting bolt. Pull the motor out of the mounting slots. To reinstall or replace, simply slide it back into the mounting slots and secure it with the mounting bolt.
In some cases, the drum will not spin due to a broken drum pulley. Post it back if that is the case.
The small belt inside the drive is most likely out of place or broken.
That is the most likely cause, you will have to open the dvd player in any case to find out the issue and to replace the belt if that is the issue.
You can eject the drive manually to find the fault by rotating the gears once you get inside.
There are two types of pumps; direct drive and belt drive.
The direct drive is mounted directly to the motor, the belt drive is mounted to the chassis. The direct drive style can be opened for complete inspection while belt drive models may or may not be designed to be opened. You can however, still remove the hoses and inspect the ports for a blockage. Inspecting the pump is fairly easy to do, but you will most likely have to open the washer's cabinet.
Typically one of three problems occur with the pump. The first is a blockage in the pump, often from small items like a sock. The second possibility is that the impeller blades become broken or worn down and cannot move water efficiently. Finally, in belt drive models, if the belt is loose or broken it does not turn the pump.
Locate the pump, it will have two, three or four hoses. Label each hose and where it connects. The hoses should each have a wire clamp or a hose clamp with a screw. Pinch the wire tabs together with pliers and wiggle the clamp farther up the hose. Screw style hose clamps are simply loosened by turning the screw, then slide the clamp up the hose. Now remove the hose from the port.
Direct drive pumps have metal clips that hold the cover plate unto the pump assembly. Use a screwdriver to pry up the clips and remove the cover. Pull off the pump's impeller unit and inspect for damage.
Belt drive pumps vary and may or may not be designed to open for repair. Examine the pump to determine whether it can be opened. If it cannot be opened the look into the ports for any blockage. If there are no blockages, and the pump belts are optimal, this will confirm that the timer module is damaged. Replace it in this case.
This problem is commonly caused by a broken or loose dryer belt. Worse case scenario would be a bad drive motor. You will need to open the dryer cabinet in order to verfiy if the belt is still intact. A visual inspection should confirm if the belt is still wrapped around the drum and tight. If the belt is missing, the only way it will come off the drum is if it breaks. You will need to replace it if this is the case.
If you need further guidance, please post back with your brand name and model number so that I may be able to provide better assistance. All dryers are not contructed the same and I will need to be able to explain to you how to open the cabinet. I hope this helps you.
