We've had this Maytag for 24 years without any repairs and it's just now that we are having trouble. Ser# 082200 NT First of all it's making this tinny rumbling sound at startup but eventually goes away. Second it doesn't get as hot inside the drum the way it used to. I guess my question to you is, can it be fixed? (I'm pretty handy) or do you think it's time to retire? Thanks Larry

I am waiting for new drum belt to arrive, I replaced the drum rollers and bearings, the idler pully with the spring attached looks ok but I noticed the assembly has side to side movement, is that how it is supposed to be? There is a small bolt/screw holding the bracket at the bottom that appears I can tighten with socket, I'm not sure it should be any tighter.???

While replacing the drum rollers and front bearing kits, is it a good idea to replace the belt. Also can all of this be done through the front or do I need to pull off the back?

I have installed the belt, groove in the belt facing away from the drum around the tumbler. Around the large white plastic idler pulley, and around the motor pulley. But the belt is hitting the metal guide by the large white plastic idler pulley and also rubbing against the belt on the machine pulley. It almost feels like the belt shul d 98" as opposed to 100" to put the right tension on the spring holding the plastic idler pulley. What am I doing wrong?

makes a rattling sound at start up and is noisy when turning, sounds sort of like a bearing, all original still and @ 13 years old, , I'm pretty handy but it looks like I need to pull out from wall and open the back to work on it. What parts do you recommend to fix?

Hello! What parts are needed to correct: The electric dryer makes a hard stop when it is finished. Makes a loud Rump kind of sound. It also rattles as it runs. What is it? when cleaning out the dust from the back -- facing back of dryer on the lower right side, your right, we took off the small opening. We could see small thin pieces of rubber on the dryer floor. When loading dryer, noticed that a thin felt piece which goes in a circle on the back of the wall, has a lump of about 2 or 3 inches where the rest of the felt is smooth.Should we be concerned about this? We have noticed that the heat doesn't seem to be as hot as it use to be. Could this be a problem? Thank You. .

Okay this a brain drainer. I push the start button and a loud buzzing sound is heard until I let go of the start button. Its like the motor is not kicking on, to turn the drum. I opened the cabinet and took a look. I pushed the button again and the motor looked like it was trying to turn (moved like a 1/4 inch. I pulled the belt which was fairly tight, but obviously worn. Is this possibly the belt or sometime else?

My dryer is making a very very loud noise that sounds like rubber against metal as it spins. It's not a squeak but more of a low pitched sound. Could it be coming from the belt? I opened up the dryer and the belt was able to be moved easily but wasn't majorly cracked or worn. Are there "wheels" that spin against the drum or anything else that might be wrong? Just looking for some advice. Thanks!
