Maytag Dryer Performa
« on: October 01, 2008, 07:31:44 PM »
Dryer is not working.  It doesn't rotate when the power is on.  Hot air coming out of the back. I think it might be a broken belt...or this model uses rollers??  When I try to rotate the drum it doesn't move smoothly.  I would like to take it apart but I can't find any service manuals for this particular model....Any ideas where to start...
Thanks in advance.

That dryer has slides on the front of the drum and wheels on the back.

Use a putty knife to release the locking clips that hold down the top:
