The removal of the front door assy was very easy after I popped up the top cover with a putty knife.Once removed it was easier to replace belt and idler assy with dryer on its backside.the only trick was to get looped thru idler roller and then fasten bracket in slot on bottom of dryer.also the instructions were well written which made re-assy much simplier.

Side wheel of drum support wore through bearing, sever noise at each rotation.

The only added thing to know is how to remove the lower kick plate. This is not on later models. Other wise all the directions are the same as for models with a full solid front panel. Immediately below the dryer door, at the right and left end, there is a plastic clip similar to the one holding the top panel to the vertical side panels. Insert a flat screw driver or putty knife releasing the plastic clip. This will allow the kick plate to fall forward on rings at the bottom of the plate. Release springs at either side of the dryer door (reattach later using pliers or a hook). Unscrew the nut screws at either side of the dryer door. Remove the door panel and the kick plate and put to one side. Reverse to reattach. I replaced the wheel tension part and the belt at the same time. I put the dryer on its back to install the wheel, belt and tension part. I used strips of scotch tape to hold the belt in place at the top and sides of the drum, while I looped the belt on the tension wheel and the driver wheel. I used the bungee cord to hold the top in place while I put the whole drier on it back. Good luck and have a vacuum handy to suck out years of dangerous lint....

Had my wife call the repair man. Since it was Saturday afternoon, no luck. YouTube help me diagnose the problem. I found that the drum belt slipped off the idler pulley assembly and the assembly was laying on the floor. I noticed that the belt was frayed and was probably stretched out which may be why the belt slipped off in the first place. I glued the frayed pieces of the belt back with gorilla glue and clamps. You Tube helped me mount the idler pulley assembly and string the belt correctly. I then ordered the replacement parts through your website. The parts came to my home in a few days and I will fix the dryer properly when I get a chance.

Sqealing noise and extended drying time

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.

The PartsSelect video was great. I'm not sure I would have figured out the trick for opening up this dryer without it. After that the main problem was getting goop off of the drum support roller spindles. This took lots of solvent and elbow grease. I think this was the main source of noise. The oil had turned to something like partly dried glue. They were very hard to turn. The belt was intact but badly cracked. The idler probably could have been oiled and reused but I already had the part so I replaced it. Everything went just like the video. The dryer now hums along like a new one!

Dryer would run for approximately 8 mins, then shut off by itself. After about 20 mins, dryer would restart but stop on it's own within 8-10 mins. Motor was also noisy when it ran.

Unplugged dryer, removed 2 screws under filter lid, removed filter, removed access panel on back of machine, removed blower motor housing, vacuumed all dust and debris from rear of dryer, turned dryer around and opened top of dryer using a small screwdriver to release the clips approximately 2" from either end, then securing top from falling by using bailing wire to hold it in place, disconnected door switch wiring harness, removed 2- 5/16 screws retaining front panel and removed front panel from dryer, removed drum from dryer, removed idler pulley from bottom of cabinet noting position of drum belt, vacuumed dust and debris from bottom of cabinet and around old motor, removed motor retaining clips rotated motor and removed wiring harness from motor. I then attempted to remove the blower wheel from the old motor and here is where the problem began. If your dryer has the original motor in it, or the motor has never been changed in it to the best of your knowledge, go ahead and order a new blower wheel with your other parts, because you will not get the old one off without destroying it. (this cost me several days to complete the repair). Do not use channel locks or vice grips to attach to the front pulley to remove or install the blower wheel... use 2 medium sized crescent (adjustable) wrenches otherwise the pulley will be damaged and you will have a lot of filing to do to repair it. (If you need to reuse the pulley. I did not as my motor and pulley was an exact replacement). I got the blower wheel off of the old motor by using a chisel and a hammer and cutting a hole around the attachment point on the motor shaft from the rear of the dryer. After this, the job was pretty easy. I put the new motor in the motor housing, put a crescent wrench on the pulley on the front of the new motor, then screwed the new blower wheel onto the motor from the back of the dryer. (remember, the blower wheel has left handed threads, so to install it you have to turn the pulley on the motor to the LEFT to thread it into the wheel.) After the blower wheel is installed and hand tight, use 2 crescent wrenches to tighten down on motor, (1 on the blower wheel hub where it is square, and 1 on the front pulley) rotate the motor down to the correct position for the wiring loom, (you want the wires to rest on the bottom of the cabinet when the job is complete)., then reinstall the motor retaining clips and attach wiring harness. At this point I installed new drum rollers, reinstalled the drum with a new drum belt, and replaced the idler pulley with a new one. (push the drum counter clockwise by hand a few times to center the drum belt and to make sure that the drum is on the drum rollers correctly). The front panel is now reinstalled being careful to make sure the clips on the cabinet engage the holes in the panel. Push back on the drum slightly and reinstall the 2- 5/16 screws to hold the front panel to the cabinet, then reattach the wiring harness for the door switch. Remove the bailing wire and close the lid. The blower wheel housing is then reinstalled, then reinstall the rear access panel. Reinstall the filter and the 2 screws under the filter lid. Plug in the dryer and your repair is complete. When a motor replacement is required, you are better off replacing the motor, blower wheel, drum rollers, drum belt, and idler pulley. I did and my dryer sounds and performs like a new one. My wife is absolutely delighted. I spent approximately $180.00 on the total repair while a new dryer would have cost me $600.00 + tax.

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.

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.

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.
