This repair is very easy. The video on partselect.com explains exactly how it's done. My only difficulty was getting the belt back on the tensioner (which incidentally the partselect video described as the only difficult part of the repair.
I wasn't able to get the belt on the tensioner when the pulley was under tension from the spring. After a few minutes of frustration, I unhooked the spring from the pulley, put the belt on the pulley and pretty easily reattached the spring.
The dryer now operates quietly and perfectly. Amazingly this maytag is drying clothes for it's fourth generation in my family. I'm glad it was such an easy and inexpensive repair.
