Maytag Corporation Informative - Bravos Dryer Issue
I purchased a Maytag Bravos series washer and dryer in 2009. For the first 13 months, it worked fine. Then it started running rough. The dryer went back to normal after a day or so, but no longer got my clothes dry -- the inside of the drum was like a sauna after running it for 2 or 3 cycles. We checked every inch of our vent for clogs, cleaned the lint screen within an inch of its life and ran very small loads. Nothing helped.
We had a repairman come out, and he said the dryer belt had "come loose." He reconnected it and the dryer ran fine...for a week. Then the same problem (running rough then clothes not drying) occurred. He came back out and said the belt assembly--in particular the parts that keep the belt attached to the drum--was broken, and it would take a week to get the part.
Fast forward two months. The dryer worked great for a while. Then it started running rough. One day later? You guessed it...the clothes aren't getting dry again. The repairman is due out next week, so we'll see.
This makes three repair calls in less than 4 months. My old GE set (which I had for 19 years) gave us very little trouble. I'm disappointed a more modern, efficient set is so inconsistent.
