Maytag performa model PDET910AYW--sounds like a belt that needs dressing--loud squeaking sound at times but at other times no sound at all What can this be?


its the drum rollers at the rear of the drum inside the machine,they get dried out from the heat and do capture some lint,then they squeal and chatter,you need to remove the front cover and drum belt and drum to access them,then remove e-clips that secure them to the spindle they ride on and clean out both spindle and wheel center,lightly oil with a very small amount of a dry lube like silicon and replace also do this to the idler pulley as they can also squeal while you have it apart

Getting Full Yield in Brother Printers - Preventing Early Supply Failures


Brother laser printers, fax machines and multifunctions all use a toner reclaim system. That means the used or left over toner (along with paper dust and debri) is recycled into the new toner cartridge supply. There is no waste section for the leftover toner and debri. This design is efficient however their are some short falls that you need to address. The toner cartridge supply is slowly contaminated with debri and dust that will send the cartridge down prematurely if your not using a good quality paper.

In addition, Brother Drum Units (ie DR-400, DR-500, DR-510, etc...) are expensive and suffer from the same premature failure problems. There is a charging brush and transfer roller inside the front top inside of the drum that drags on the drum surface to charge and discharge it properly for toner transfer. If you use poor quality the built up paper dust and debri interferes with this system and ultimately prevents it from working prperly. Here's a photo of a newer drum that failed due to the use of poor paper. Note the paper dust embedded in the transfer roller (top), caught up in the charge brush (center) and actually laying on the drum (bottom).

Here's a closeup of the charge brush so you can see the problem better below.

Below is the damage that bad paper caused. This DR-520 drum pictured is rated for 25,000 pages but due to low quality paper lasted just over 7,000. This was caused by a "Store Brand" paper.

Here below is a photo of the inside of a brother toner cartridge contaminated with paper dust and debri due to la ow quality super store brand paper. Note all the white paper dust in the toner.

To get the full yield from your Brother supplies, simply use GOOD QUALITY PAPER. STAY AWAY FROM STORE BRAND PAPERS as they go out on low price bid rather than to meet a tight quality standard. I would recommend a HP Brand paper as it's an "ALWAYS KNOWN GOOD" paper. The cheapest on the HP branded papers is HP Office and it works well.

Hope this has helped you understand the importance of using good quality paper in your brother machines. If you found this helpful, please rate it with a FIXYA as significant time and effort was used to help you.

Thanks and Happy Printing

My dryer makes a loud noise when turned on seems to be comming from the back of the drum


Hello there: Here is the only things that noise could even beginning to come from so please read the entire list i have provided below Rear drum bearingSome dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

I have a rubbing noise noise when dryer is on on my Maytag PYG 2300 AWW


Unplug dryer and turn off gas. Lift the hinged top of dryer up and prop back far enough on wall so it will stay back. There are some tabs located just under the front of the lid that pop up easily. If not use a flat blade screwdriver and push in gently on tabs to release. Use a flashlight to locate tabs. Un-clip door switch from inside of front panel and set to side. No need to remove the wires from the switch. Remove screws (one on each side) at top front corners of unit that hold the front panel on. Remove front panel and set aside. Get a second set of hands and remove drum by pulling forward and lifting slightly while the second person slides belt off the back of drum. At this point all your components and parts are exposed. My problem ended up being a simple one and I fixed it without cost. There are two rear support pulleys that the drum rides on located at the back of the dryer cabinet. They are white pulleys with black rubber treads. These should spin freely and one of mine was not spinning and causing the dryer to squeal and moan terribly when running. In my opinion it is a design flaw and here is why. Upon closer examination I found that the rubber on the pulley that wears over time got down between the pulley bushing and the spindle it rides on and melted. This caused the pulley to sieze up. It melted due to being located directly above the heating unit. The fix: Remove pulley which is held in place with a snap ring, clean spindle and inside of bushing with denatured alcohol, and reassemble in reverse of dissasembly. Tip: Remove and clean both pulley assemblies while you have the dryer apart. Mine not only had melted rubber on the one above the heating unit but also I found a fair amount of hair around both spindles. I used a bit of graphite on the spindles before reinstalling the pulleys. Also as soon as I removed the drum I found LOTS of lint, hair, and other stuff in the bottom of the cabinet. Get a shop vac or use your home vaccum with and attachment and clean all this out to lessen fire hazard and increase dryer life.**** Make sure your unit is unplugged before doing this.****

Dryer squeal @ start up; access


Below are some links, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, that will assist you in diagnosing/repair of your dryer. You may have to enter your model number in the search box to access some of the information.

Below is a parts breakdown/disassembly procedure for your dryer.
http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Electric-Maytag-Style-Appliance-Diagram


It sounds as if you have a dry rear drum roller. Check the above link first for parts and teardown.

You can also obtain more appliance information at my website, www.homemanagement.services.officelive.com

If your dryer is noisy, check these:

Rollers
Idler pulley
Glides
Rear drum bearing
Blower wheel
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

White 'dandruff like' flakes blowing from front & back of air con


this stuff is mold and mildew that builds up in the blower and evaporator section of your unit the unit needs to be cleaned out i'm not familar with this particular brand so I cant tell you how to pull it apart but since it is a split system this means the freon lines will most likely have to be pulled loose. you may try removing the covers and vacuming the unit as well as you can and possibly blowing it out with compressed air. aside from that I would recomend alling a qualified service comapny. good luck peyton
