Hi, I'm Clint. I have a Maytag gas clothes dryer model # LDG5004AAW. It seems to have burnt its drive belt, but I cannot open it to check.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

LDG5004AAW

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

We got it used from a friend (price was right) and it's served us well for at least five years.

I believe we lost the drive belt for the drum, but I cannot open the unit to check.
Customer reply replied 25 days ago
There was a "bump bump" sound followed by the smell of burnt rubber. When I got home to check the dryer, the drum turned quite freely, much more freely than the day before.

have you tried taking the back of the dryer wall off yet? You may need to take the top off first to be able to do this.

Customer reply replied 25 days ago
Not yet, but the top is firmly attached. It won't move in any direction.
I'll pull the screws and see how that works.

yes the screws will need to be removed.

I just sent over an offer for your service aides/ job manual that will assist you with doing anything on your unit ever. You can download and print it out of you like. This is not your user manual by the way. Its a service/ technicians manual.
