Maytag performa gas dryer wont spin
« on: March 29, 2009, 10:49:05 PM »
Hi there,

I run into the same problem for my dryer as discussed In This Post, but my dryer model are slightly different, PYG3300AWW. Should I follow the same repair manual (16026315 Maytag Dryer Service Repair Manual) to take off the front? Also, please let me know the belt part number. Thanks for help.

I swear, just when I thought I knew something about something, it dawned on me that the plain old 341241 belt that has been used on all Whirlpool dryers since Methuselah was a child also fits the dadgum Performa. Wish I had figgered that little jewel out a few years ago when I ran out of the Magic Chef belt.

Guess we live & learn. Those sneakity bastages at Maytag had been secretly transforming  the  Maycor platform into WP design behind our backs...oh well.

I Was in a bind one day (Exclusive men's retreat club in N CA) & customer needed dryer yesterday. I took the old belt ( thinking it would be close enough to last a day or so to get the genuine) and found it was in fact the same & cheaper than maytag belt.Never bought another genuine belt for those models again.
