|Maytag Dryer motor stops after 15 seconds of turning.
This first happened last week. Upon inspection I found the belt was fraying.
I replaced the belt and cleaned a bunch of link from the felt, front
and rear. Cleaned a bit of dust and such from the cabinet.
I lubricated the barrel rollers and tension roller.
I tested moving the barrel by hand: moved freely.
With the belt in position I can turn the barrel by hand in the clockwise direction. This allows the belt to slide past the motor pully.
After this repair it dryed a load just fine.
Now it starts turning and then stop after about 15 seconds. I have
it set in the Air Dry cycle to avoid the gas related sensors,...
