I found some youtube videos on how to take apart a Maytag dryer. It was possible to do so with the limited tools I had. I tested the possible issue causing parts and found that the idler pulley was the issue. Ordered the part online and it arrived promptly within 3 days. Replacing the part was very easy. Again, I followed a video instruction from youtube. The difficult part of the job is to take the dryer apart and putting it back together. The dryer now runs like a Hybrid car. The new iddler pulley does not look identical ot the replaced one. But it works and that is what matters.

Help other customers find the most helpful instructions.
