I have order #4242322. I have switched out each of those parts and my dryer is still not heating. I am wondering if there is a mother board in the dryer or if you can suggest anything else that could make the heat not work?
You will want to access the heater and with the power off, remove one wire from the heater assembly. From this point you will want to plug the unit back up and turn the dryer on a heated dry cycle. You will then want to test the wire that is disconnected to ground. There should be 120 vac to this wire. If there is not then trace that wire back to its source of either the timer or the motor. If there is 120 vac then test the other wire the same and if not 120 vac then trace it back. The issue will be in one of these 2 components.
My washer does not do anything . It filled up the tub but now will not do anything. What is the problem?
Answer Hello Ila. You need to check the lid switch and see if it is bad and needs to be replaced on the unit.
Dryer squeeks. Is there a repair kit to get or just the belt?
Answer Hello Curt! Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not offer a repair kit for your model MDE5500AYW. If a repair kit were offered the kit would usually consist of the belt part number 33002535, roller part number 12001541 and belt tension pulley part number 6-3700340. I'd also check the tumber bearings 306508. Hope this helps, thanks!
We are replacing the dryer drum belt, also drum support rollers and tumbler bearing kit, do we also need the drum roller axle?
Answer Debbie, As long as there are no major wear marks or scratches, on the axles 6-3129480, you can usually clean the axle and "buff" them with emory cloth. Then lube the shafts and roller bearing (center opening) 12001541 with a couple of drops of turbine oil TJ93240. You'll also want to repeat the procedure on the idler pulley assembly 6-3037050.
How to open dryer top maytag.
Answer Hello Nick,
Between the main top and the cabinet in hte front there would be 2 clips that have to be released to lift top. If it has the lint filter on top then remove lint filter and 2 screws, pull forward on top and lift.
When running my gas dryer it makes a rumbling noise.
Answer Hello Wayne,
This probably has nothing to do with the unit being gas. Most of the time, the drum rollers 12001541, idler wheel 6-3037050, and glides 306508 make the noise. This is a pre-cursor to failure. The belt Y312959 should be inspected to determine if the other failing parts have caused the belt to need replacement.
