I watched the straight forward videos, which were very helpful for taking apart the dryer, removing the worn or damaged parts and then re-assembling the unit. Any one with good mechanical aptitude can make these repairs fairly easily. Have a shop vac with soft brush attachment handy to completely clean all the lint & debris on the motor, belt rollers and combustion chamber. I replaced the rear felt seal which had fallen apart after many years of use. The locating flat on my old blower wheel was completely worn away and not allowing the blower wheel to work properly. The new parts arrived 2 days after I placed my order. My Maytag Gas Dryer is working like new and dries all our clothes quickly. I'm sure I'll be saving a lot of energy that was being wasted and all the time it was taking to dry the clothes. You will be my source for any appliance parts that I may need in the future.
