25/01/2010 · I watched the drum turn when I turned the dryer and the drum makes a 1 turn or so then shuts off. Try turning the dryer on again and I hear a hum and then turns off (drum doesn't turn). I replaced the drum belt, seal and pulleys a few years ago. I am not sure how freely the drum should turn, if it should still turn after force is applied.
NOTE: Chapter 2 covers problems common to almost all Maytag dryer designs, like heating problems. ... Loud rumbling or banging noise, getting progressively worse over time, or squeaky sounds coming from the drum support rollers. Replace as described in section 5 .
