Default Bad motor?
Model Number: sdg305daww   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years

I have a Maytag and after chat on another forum, I was (almost) certain the start up of my dryer motor was bad. It would start if I rotated the drum to a new position for the last few months. But, a few weeks ago, the drum would not turn at all in the forward motion. I could spin it backwards, but not forward. So I bought a new motor and was about to replace it today when I noticed there was a lot of lint inside. I vacuumed out the inside, including motor. I noticed the blower fan had a couple of broken fins and would not turn counter-clockwise (forward). I have ordered a new fan as something has obviously been wedged in this and broke it.

However, I plugged the motor in and started the dryer and it worked with no problems. I did this several times with no problems from the motor. So here is my question (finally): could the broken fins on the fan be enough to keep the drum from turning if they were to get wedged outward and catch on something? There is definite wear and tear on the fins, in fact, a couple have been worn down on the outside. I obviously need to replace the fan, but do I need to replace the motor, too? Should I slap it back together and see how it does?

Thanks..

Anything can stall the motor if it jams the blower. You probably cleared the obstruction when you removd the broken fins and vacuumed the lint out.
