    My problem is with a maytag ensignia dryer quite series 200. I have replaced the belt but the drum is still not turning and when you push the start button hot air is blowing, so it mustr have something to do with the motor or pulley wheel, please help

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site.There are a few things that can be going on. I am not quite sure if you have power or not, but if you don't, try checking the plug in cord. If you do have power, the start button may be defective or have a bad connection. You may also have a problem with your control board in the washer, basically your computer. It is not common, but they do go out. You may have a bad lid switch as well. Pay attention to when you close the washer door. Listen for a click from the lid switch when you shut it. If you have a bad lid switch, it can even cause the washer to not work at all. Try these steps and let me know what else is going on. I will respond to your reply and thanks for choosing FixYa.

    The drive motor controls the turning of the drum. If your drum is not turning, the motor may be bad. You could also have a bad lid switch also. It can cause the washer to not spin. As far as the pulley, if you have a frozen pulley, it can cause this. But you should be able to see this when the belt was changed. You can add a some type of lube to the pulley (if it is sticking) to see if it will begin to move. If not, it will need replaced.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If the door is closed completely then the problem is with the control board/start button that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    OK, as it is a dryer then it seems the belt is worn out and is bad and needs replacement, you have to open it to check it.

My front end load dryer makes a humming noise when started then goes to pause


Have you checked the drying drum to see if it spins freely? Open the door and verify it spins freely. if it does then the motor may just be in a bad spot. usually after spinning the drum a turn or two it will get it running. it humms and clicks because of the motor not turning and trips an thermal overload switch and you have to wait for it to reset. Now if the drum dosent turn then you have a problem with drum rollers or something stuck in the way of the drum.

Dryer makes loud humming noise but drum doesn't turn when I push start.


Check to see if the drum will turn by hand. If so, leave the door open but push the light switch button down and start the unit. Once you hear the humming sound, manually turn the drum with your hand to start. If the drum turns normally, you have a bad motor and needs to be replaced. If the drum does not turn, something is jamming the motor and needs to be disassembled and inspected.
Good luck
