Followed online youtube directiond to dissassemble dryer cabinet. Everything is readily accessible and belt and idler are easily installed. Comments from others express frustration at the instability of the idler pulley bracket. The key is to keep seating pressure on bracket until the belt is installed at which time the belt supplies continuous pressure to seat the bracket. The bracket is very stable so long as moderate force is applied to hold the brackett in the seat. The belt install is counter intuitive in that the ribbed side of the belt is installed in contact with the drum instead of the flat side. The readon for this is so the belt ribs seat in the grooves of the motor pully and provide greater friction. Flat side of the belt on the drum places the flat belt on the grooved pulley with much reduced contact area.

After removing the back, I realized I absolutely did not know what I was doing. I went to google put in my model number, and went to your web page. The rest is history. Went to the video watched it and went back to the dryer and after cleaning up the back, put it back and removed the top and front as per video. The parts came in a few days and replaced the belt and idler arm n about 2 min. I am not kidding. The wife held the drum while I put the front back on. One thing I could not separate the door switch so I just unscrewed it from the fron panel. The dryeris 20 years old, and your web page will put the Maytag repairman on the unemployment line.

First I watched a instruction video online.. It made the job easy. I have done it before but I did not remember exactly how to proceed, After watching the video i knew exactly what screws needed to be removed and what tool I needed for each step. Anybody sees the video before tackling this job, they can't go wrong.

Just like the video. Disconnect the lint shute. Pop the top lose. Disconnect the door switch. I actually took the hooks off an removed the entire lid. Took the two screws out and removed the front panel. (The OEM idler was a teflon half-moon so I think the abrasion was what caused the belt to fail.) Put the belt around the drum. Rolled the drum to check the seal overlap was proper. Installed the idler and wrapped the belt around the motor shaft. Put it back together. Would have been a little easier with a helper.

removed the back panel,propped up the top, and removed the front panel, and replaced the rear seal, the belt, and idler pulley, and put back together the opposite of taking it apart.

loud squealing when running

  • Customer: Michael from Easton, MD
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I followed the video provided by PartSelect. It pretty much went exactly like the video said it would. I was pretty sure the belt or idler pully must be the culprit, but I didn't even know how to open the thing up until I saw your video. I would likely still be putting up with the squealing without that video. Now the dryer is nice and quiet. -Mike

I am a female, not a handy man. But by following the repair man on the video, it was easy. I also went ahead and installed the maintance kit. The maintance kit was recommended when I ordered the parts. I followed by maintaining the washer.

Washer overflowed

Once I watched a YouTube video showing me how to do the job I ordered the part from you. Am so impressed with your fast shipping and best prices via the Internet. Thank you SO much! The water level switch was easy to install, it ws getting the cover on the washer back on that was hard for me since I am 68 yrs old and have a bad knee. Its why it took me two hours to do what most people could do in 20 minutes.

We only had to tilt the dryer enough to be able to screw the leveling leg in place.The only hard part was holding the dryer steady to screw in the leveling foot.

Dryer would not start

  • Customer: Marianne from Solon, OH

My dryer is a KitchenAid KEYE660W (electric). I tried to start the dryer but it would not run. I did notice that if I held the start button down, I could feel light vibrations through the button. Searched through Yahoo and this site and determined that this is often a bad Thermal Fuse. Used the diagrams on this site to locate where it should be, removed the back of the dryer with a screwdriver, removed the two wires clipped to the Thermal Fuse and unscrewed the Thermal Fuse. I had a friend test the fuse with a Multimeter. It was bad so I ordered another one on this site and it arrived in two days. Screwed the Thermal Fuse back in and clipped the two wires back on. Started the dryer and it worked!!! Replaced the back of the dryer. This repair took 15 minutes MAX and taught me a little bit about Mulitmeters.
