Found PartSelect and easily found what was needed to replace this lint filter in my Maytag dryer. Maytag guys have moved away-and besides you can do more on this site. I was very pleased. Thank goodness they got rid of the felt inside this lint filter--that was the big problem. Thanks PartSelect--I will use you for all my maintenance.SDE3606AYW

I removed the front bottom panel then, using a flashlight, I located the heating element on the bottom left towards the back of the machine. I positioned a flashlight to illuminate the area and using the nutdriver removed 2 screws. I then was able to extract the element and bring it to the front of the machine. The fuse is also located on the element panel. I disconnected all the wires and connectors on the old panel and connected them to the new panel and reinstalled everything including adding the new fuse.

I ordered the belt, which arrived really fast! Took dryer apart, removed old belt, replaced with new belt. The hardest part was remembering how to put the dryer back together! I think next time I will video the taking apart process so I can see how it goes back! This was the 2nd belt in about 18 years, the dryer works fine, and it sure is cheaper than a whole new dryer! Thanks for saving me money again! Really helps in these hard economic times!

I cann thank you guys enough. I am a mother of three and heavily into sports. Lots of clothes need to get washed and dried. On a Saturday morning drier breaks. Called the 800 number listed on my warrenty paper work which could not gurantee which part i was getting and if it was the correct one. after a busy weekend sunday evening my husband and i were working on it to determine what was wrong. we located the problem but the original 800 number was closed on weekends, I found part select on the internet and they were open late on sunday for the customer service. I spoke with an awesome rep that not only located the part but was able to give me the part number to look up on the website to match and make sure i ordered the correct part. I had it shipped 3-5 days and came on that tuesday before July 4th. three days earlier then expected. Part went in and drier was fix. Thank you sooooo much for the prompt and courtesy service we recieved. I will use and recommend this company to anyone.

well first I thought that the high limit thermal fuse was blown and as I did not have the meter with me, I decided to order both fuse and thermostat at the same time to "cover the bases". Fast delivery... very happy... went back to the rental property and replaced both.....no dice... went back home and ordered the replacement heater element and once agin to "cover the bases" also ordered the thermostat that rides on the blower fan exaust..(very little info on this one,have no idea what it does). two days later went back down and added more parts....still did not work. Because my multimeter was at home 20 miles away, I went to local autozone ant picked up a cheep meter. Started to track the power and got even more fustrated... everthing was hot, the motor ran, but the heater would not kick in. Then it hit me...this was an old apartment and the dryer was on an old box with two 30 amp screw in fuses..you now the kind that you can look at and see when they are blown...RIGHT!!! checked the first one with the meter and right ther I found out that I spent 6 days and over $150 in new parts to just to find out that the fix was a $1.25 fuse. oh well now I got a cheep meter that fits in my little tool kit. and more parts for backup.

The door was not catching. The female part to the door closing mechanism broke. It was such an easy fix! Took about 30 secs to fix!!

Disconnected the lint vent and exhaust duct from motor assembly. Removed belt and drum then took out motor. You have to disconnect the fly wheel and housing to swap out motor. Motor is secured to assembly by 2 clamps, remove and replace engine. From there go back the way you came. Make notes of any wiring that you disconnect (dryer door/cycling thermostat)to eliminate any guess work putting it back together. The dryer is put together by sheet metal screws, small socket wrench very helpful.I disassembled the front of dryer and removed the top.

I did a quick research online and found PartSelect to have the best price. I ordered my part on Monday 8/6 and to my tremendous surprise FedEx delivered it Tuesday 8/7!! I did not pay for overnight delivery. My son happened to come by that day and he took a small flathead screwdriver, pried the old one out and inserted the new part. Done in 5 minutes! PartSelect will be my supplier from now on.
