When I ordered the 2 drum support roller kits, Part Select suggested ordering the belt tension idler pulley as well. I figured this idler pulley has not been changed in 30 + years, it's time to replace. Sure glad I did, I checked the pulley when I had the dryer apart and the idler pulley was in bad shape and it was a cinch to replace while I had the dryer apart.I viewed the video supplied by Part Select twice before beginning to replace 2 drum support roller kits and the belt tension idler pulley. It was most helpful!!! What I planned as a 2 hour repair, was completed in 1 hour from the time I gathered the tools from my toolbox until they were back in the toolbox and dryer purring quietly. Thanks to the VERY detailed video and correct parts shipped in a timely manner!! 1970's/80's model Maytag washer and dryer are the best! And Part Select keeps them running!!
