Question Electric dryer drum won't turn
Model Number: MLD6600TQ0   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years

I have a Maytag electric dryer. When I turn it on, the digital display comes on and works as normal. The heating element and the drum belt work. The dryer works as normal (clock ticks down, sensors detect wetness, etc), except the drum doesn't turn. When I ran the diagnostic test, it told me that the inlet thermistor was faulty. Would this cause the drum to not turn? It seems like that was for the heating element.

Hi.

Please check the model number and re post it.

Can you turn the drum manually?

Simon.

The correct model number is MED6600TQ0. The drum spins smoothly when pushed manually.

Hi.

If the motor runs check how the belt is sitting on the drum and arownd the idler pulley. There is the belt tension switch near the idler pulley so when the belt brakes the motor won't turn on.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and 02-Cabinet Parts parts for Maytag MED6600TQ0 - AppliancePartsPros.com
