Belt Broke

  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I watched the video to know how to change the belt. I removed the front panel and slid the belt over the tub (you will have to pick the tub up a little). Then I reached around with one hand and slid the belt over the pulley. Then I used the same one hand to push the tensioner back and slip the belt behind it. You will be doing most of the work by feeling not by vision but that's where their video is helpful. I paused the screen on my laptop where it shows how the tensioner goes around the belt. Also when you slide the belt over the tub look for the grove the previous belt left for alignment. It took me 10 minutes.

Read the Use & Care Guide! I spent several hours trying to repair a dryer that was not broken because I was unaware of the "lint signal". While replacing a burnt out heater element I apparently disturbed the flapper on the lint signal box and it stuck in the open position. My wife who does the laundry has always kept the lint filter clean so we had never heard the lint signal and I assumed that the high pitched sound I was hearing must have been from a faulty gasket, belt, roller, pully, or motor. Boy is my face red!

The dryer stopped rotating and moter smelled funny

Watched the how to video on the parts select site. The job to replace the motor was easy although I had some issues with the blower fan wheel as it is made of plastic and was frozen to the motor, yes I turned it the correct way for the left hand threads. I ended up distroying the blower fan wheel and had to buy a new one. I had to remove the rear plate to get at the fan component, but thta was easy to do also. This site should add a "Sometimes bought together" comment for the motor replacement. After all was done I read some of the other comments and found some others had the same problem with the fan wheel. Once I had all the parts the dryer went back together fairly quickly. The job was easy to do and I would believe almost anyone could do it.

Dryer started making a squeeking noise and would shut off after only 3-4 minutes of drying.

It is a washer/dryer combo. First I unplugged the unit. I had to remove the top and front of the dryer, remove the belt and remove the drum. I then removed the side panel that the motor was on. That was a little tricky getting at a couple of the screws. I then took the flywheel off which was somewhat difficult. It screws off in the opposite direction and was hard to get loose. I unplugged the motor, no wires to connect. There is a clip on the front and back of the motor holding it in place. Take them off and the motor comes right out. Replace the new motor and screw the flywheel back on. Install the clips, plug the motor in and put everything back as you took it apart.

Unplugged dryer. Removed lint tray screws. Opened top of dryer and removed the two face screws then removed front of dryer. Released the belt tensioner. Then removed the drum. Disconnected the wiring clip and with a creseant wrench held the back of motor and turned the nut in the front clockwise to loosen the motor from the vent fan. Then simply pulled the old motor out and reversed the steps and now have a great working old dryer again.

motor was bad in my dryer

  • Customer: jerry from atlanta TX
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set

I had to take the top loose and raise it up. There are two screws in exhaust vent you have to take out then you can raise the top. When you raise the top you will have to take the front loose and open it up enough to take the drum out. Go to the back and take the lower cover off and take the screws holding the exhaust vent out so the vent will come out the top. When you take the vent out you will see a fan on the end of the motor shaft. The fan is threaded on the shaft and it is left handed threads. As you face the fan you will have to turn the fan to the right to get if off. You will need someone to hold a back up on the motor shaft inside the dryer to keep it from turning. Take the motor out then get the new motor and wire it according to instructions. Install the motor on the motor mount, put fan on then put everything back in reverse order that you took it apart. The hardest part for me was putting the clips on the motor when I put it back together. Hope this helps you.

Machine would not power up

This is a long, sad story, but I'll cut to the chase. I was told by few appliance repair guys that my problem was most likely due to the motor being bad. I had checked the thermal fuse, the door switch, and the power switch, and all were good so that made sense. I then saw a video which made it seem fairly straight forward to remove the old motor and replace it. So I ordered the motor from Part Select. Turns out it's impossible to remove the motor without also removing (and replacing) the blower. The video never mentions that. Also FYI, I found out that my dryer switch WAS broken, and nothing was wrong with the motor, so I spent $250 on a repair that should have cost %40. Oh well ...

Dryer would only run for a few mins and then not restart. Also there was a grinding noise.

I replaced the entire motor in the dryer and the belt while I had it open and it is working great! I just watched the short video on the site to learn the tricks and did it myself.

I replaced the Cycling thermostat. At first I thought I may have blamed the wrong part because the ohm meter read almost the same for the old and the new part. It took less than a day for the part to come probably because it came from Jacksonville. I haven't guessed how much I saved by not calling a appliance repair.

Went on the website to diagnose the problem and ordered the two most likely components for the recommended "fix". Watched the video that was associated with the tracking information that was emailed to me when the parts shipped. Walks you right through the entire process. My daughters could do this. I call myself the "Maytag Repairman" these days and the wife was quite impressed!!! Of course I didn't clue her in to all the help I received from you guys...made her think I was a GENIUS!!! ;)

Replacing the cycling thermostat did not fix the problem on my whirlpool gas dryer. I then did more research on the internet and found that a likely cause was the 2 solenoids coils that control the gas valves. I replaced these and this and now the dryer works great. I had no idea how to open up the dryer to get at these, so it took a little while to figure out. 1) Lift up on front of dryer top to pop top off of 2 spring clips. 2) Reach down through top opening and find 2 bolts that attach dryer front to dryer body and remove with a nut driver. 3) Lift up on dryer front to release it from 2 hooks that it hangs on. 4) Remove 2 screws for bracket that holds coils in place. 5) Unplug coils and put in new ones. 6) Reinstall in reverse order. Problem solved. Great service from your site. Received parts 1 day after order using regular ground shipping.
