Thread: Maytag Dryer Needs New Motor

    Post Maytag Dryer Needs New Motor

    Model Number: DG 312
    Brand: Maytag
    Age: More than 10 years

    I have a Maytag dryer that is around 25 years old and more or less only has been used regally for 4 years of use. The motor went out on it and the repairman said that it would cost more than what it is wroth to repair it.

    What is your feelings on it?
    If I need to buy a NEW DRYER what is the top rated dryer on the market?
    Being in our 60's which brand would you recommend?

    I have not keep up with any of the appliance today.

    The motor for this dryer is not very expensive, but it does take it little while to install as the wiring on the new motor is slightly different and the wires are connected in different places. The new motor includes instructions for the wiring. We feel that a lot of these older dryers were made better than the newer ones and if it is cost effective to repair the dryer. For new dryers, my personal favorites are Whirlpool and Maytag.

    This is the motor for your model dryer. The motor pulley will have to be reused from the old motor or ordered separately.
