Hubby gets off the phone with Ex-wife a few weeks ago and tells me she went out and bought a new dryer because hers "Just died for no reason" Now she knows it's not my first rodeo when it comes to appliances...but proceeds to go out and buy a new one anyway....I say to hubby let's go get the old one and see what's wrong with it(his mother has been wanting a new dryer as her old mid eighties kenmore with the rusty top is starting to look a little worse for wear) So..we go get the maytag, did a little fishing around....found a soda can pop top jammed in the blower, and a blown fuse( I'm no Sherlock holmes but, I suspect that may have been the issue...LOL! did a little cleaning, New fuse , new drum glides....belt and rollers were in real good shape, I usually replace these as a rule of thumb, but no sense in spending money I don't have to....600.00 that hubby's ex spends on new machine, 22.00 I spend to fix old one, look on her face when we tell her what the problem was......PRICELESS!
A little gruby....

The top of the dryer looks brand new, you did an excellent job!  I need to order one of those dryer vent cleaning kits.  I had a brush, loaned it to my boss, she brought it back to work and another employee decided to borrow and I haven't gotten the darn thing back yet, and it's really starting to annoy me.
