I have a Maytag electric dryer - Model LDE7314ACE. A few months ago, my wife noticed that it was making noise and leaving black marks on the clothes. So, I took it apart and replaced the bearings (skid pads) and drum rollers (one of which had basically disintegrated leaving an gap near the heating element).
After that repair, it ran like a dream.
Now, it is making an electrically hot smell and the there isn't enough torque to turn the drum. I took the belt off and I can move the drum by hand. With the belt on, the drum moves by hand, but is difficult. Even with no clothes in the drum, pushing the start button causes a little noise with no drum movement. If I push the start button, hold down the door sensor AND turn the drum by hand, it will start.
Is the motor fried? Could it be something else?
