Red silicone glue will not hold the "fin" under operation. You will have to access the outside of the drum to reattach the fin Avoid removing the drum unless you have the equipment to re-install the bushing that holds the drum. Make sure you disconnect the power and gas.

This Maytag Atlantis heats too hot; I cleaned off all the lint deposit from the drier itself and from the ducts, but it is still too hot, with heat coming out even in fluff. please help.


There are high/heat limit switches in the rear near the heating element. The switch needs to be replaced because its not shutting the heat off when it reaches correct temperature. Rear of dryer needs to be disassembled for this repair...............

Repair loose tumbler fin


Pop the top, remove the front, the drum will come free. Take pictures of how the belt goes around the motor. Fix your "fin" and reverse.



The top is held down by spring clips.

How do I test my dryers heating element, and High Limit thermostat?


Both can be checked with a multimeter set to the ohms setting. Disconnect the coil from the dryer and place a test lead to one end og the coil. Place the other test lead on the opposite end of the coil. If the circuit closes, the coil is good. Do the same with the High Limit thermostat. If the thermostat is closed, the thermostat is good. (Note: that is if the thermostat is Normally Closed - opens when the temperature exceeds the temperature). You can find out by contacting the replacement parts center.

Hi, Unplug the dryer. Remove the screws on each side of the door opening. The front will pull toward you and lift off the clips at the bottom. You have the option to take the door off or leave it hang there. With the front off, you should be able to reach in and tighten the screws that hold the [addles in place. Just turn the drun by hand to get to the next paddle. You will need a 5/16" or 1/4" nut driver/socket.
Please let me know if this helps you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Maytag atlantis dryer does not heat


Perhaps the thermal fuse is open. All thermostats and thermal fuses should be closed for continuity at room temperature on this dryer.

UNPLUG DRYER, 220v is not fun
You get in the back of the dryer, from the front.
maytag dryers have two screws in the curve of the bottom of the front panel. (Note:screws may be torx-secure screws, cut a slot in them and use a flat screwdriver or pick up a torx-secure #20 bit at a tool shop, star shape with a pin in it)
remove the screws and the front panel can be swung up from the bottom and unhooked.
unplug door switch wires
reach under drum, for belt tensioner, pull belt off tensioner. and motor pulley
lift drum up and slide out forward
under drum are 2 rubber tired rollers, check for free motion, replace both if either is seized
the drum has felt bushes on it
examine felts for wear, replace if worn.
ensure all felt and adhesive is scraped from drum before fitting new felts, if there is any left, it bumps/thumps and knocks every rotation (best adhesive is Hi temperature red silicone)
use 2-4 pairs locking pliers(visegrips) to install felt
  • put adhesive on drum edge
  • clip felt in place at one point with visegrip
  • pull felt around drum, clipping in place as you go
  • let sit in clamps till adhsive sets
reassemble drum in reverse order
38d7d07.jpg while you got it apart is a good time to clear any lint from exhaust vents and squirrel cage fan,
felts last cost $30/pair rollers $9/pair
takes 45 minutes now to change felts, I do rollers while the adhesive sets, had a lot of practice, replace the belt, cost is minimal, it has been *****ed pulling the drum against the worn felts or rollers, and will break soon, dont want to open up again
