Maytag dryer drum not moving or making any noise
—- update / solution —-
The issue is resolved (for now). The root cause was the CCU / Main Board.
during all the tests I noticed strange marks on the drum due to harness rubbing on it, I figured out the hardness should not be routed that way beside the drums being pushed down all the time by the drum turning clockwise. One of the thermistor wires had all insulation gone from rubbing, I fixed it and properly routed the hardness next to the door using two factory zip tire clips that are there empty. (Previous home inspector went must have got some work done on it which was not done properly).
That didn’t solve the issue so I took out the main board to see if constant pull on the harness may have cause some solders to come apart and that’s what I noticed on the bottom of the board , it looks like the relay’s solder came loose for a while and was causing sparks / heat there and it melted the pcb board metal where the leg was soldered, I exposed some area on the circuit and soldered the pin there. I suspend the pulling caused this so hopefully the fix will stick or else I already ordered a used board off eBay in case this issue comes up again (I won’t be soldering it again) . In case this gets heated again and burns out then I will put the replacement board in but for now the dryer is back in business. See some pics attached.
——— original question ——-
I have this Maytag dryer that I was using yesterday. I noticed it felt like it was vibrating/rattling bit too much so I was going to check after finishing the load.
Once the load finished and I tried to start another load, it won’t start anymore. The lights come up and I can select the right option and press start, I can hear the relay click and it says “sensing” but usually at that time the drum is spinning (right after pressing start). But not anymore , it’s not spinning at all, the motor is not making any type of sound (no hum, it’s dead quiet).
Could this be dead motor or something else I can check? Thanks.
