Customer Question
I have a 1965...

I have a 1965 Maytag clothes dryer (Model DE806) that has developed a problem with the large button on the front that is used to select the type of drying I want to do. It makes a loud noise when it is pushed, which is how the dryer is turned on and the dryer will not start. I realize this dryer is 50 yrs. old but I do not want to replace it...it is the best. I am pretty sure I can get a replacement part ? to install. Your opinion??? And, what is the name of the part I am seeking when I go to the appliance fixit store? Thank you. *****: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It sounds like the motor is faulty and the noise is from that. The motor is no longer available so you will have to find a used one. The company below has used motors, though!

Good Stuff

The motor is pretty easily replaced but it does require the cabinet be removed. There are three large screws on each side to take off as well as the rear service cover.
