The grooves on the real Maytag motor pulley are opposed to the grooves on the belt-unlike the whirlpool and GE, et al.
If it's a real maytag it's worth a new motor
If it's the admiral- maytag - junk it.
I'm not sure about the model number, but if there's a solid steel inner assy behind the door
that had to be removed with 4 or more 5/16 screws, to install the belt
and there are 2 teflon glides with cork under them on this assy, please check them for wear
These could bind the drum and drag a motor down.
Yes, a motor can get weak and stupid and not pull a proper load -
especially if the bearings and glides have worn out from extra cap loads - or from dirty or low voltage conditions.
If the dryer sides are flimsy with the front removed, and no seperate inner steel support to hold up the drum, you have the admiral. Buy a whirlpool with the widest door opening which pulls down.
If your unit has these components described above earlier,
this makes it a true old fashioned Maytag, then keep it forever.
bon chance. kx
