Remove the two screws holding the door and lift straight up. Remove the two screws on oppostie side. Face can now be removed by pulling straight out at the top, then lifting face up off of tabs at the bottom. The two coils are at the bottom, held in by a retaining bracket. Remove the screws that hold the bracket. Replace the coils by unplugged their wires. That's it!

Dryer Belt Popped

The dryer belt was delivered promply, afterwards I lifted the top of the dryer and unscrewed the front panel, so it would lower. Then I watch a 5 minute video and it clearly demonstrated how to install the belt. This was my first time, so it took about 30 minutes.

Squeaky wheel

  • Customer: Todd from San Antonio TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

Basically I started off using youtube to see how to install. Two things to be sure you do – one the plastic washer only goes on one side (read the instructions)of the shaft and two the support brackets are not threaded so you need to use the original self-tapping screws. The screws that come with it will not work. Best to use a socket set to install the screws.

Dryer Stopped Mid Cycle and Would Not Start

Dryer stopped mid cycle with a load in it. First checked breaker, then door switch with an ohm meter and went to Partselect web site where they said it was most likely the high limit fuse. Checked the high limit fuse with an ohm meter and it was open so I ordered the kit. Installation was tight (I have big hands) and I found it necessary to remove the heating coil in order to line up the fuse mounting plate on the side heater box. Also had to remove the two wire clips above the heater to gain access. All in all, it was fairly easy and when done, the dryer started up.

Broken Belt

PartSelect sent the exact right part, and very quickly! YouTube showed me how to install it. The only hard part was the bulkiness of the drum, which is why I marked "a bit difficult" for the repair.

The ignitor would lite, but no gas from the valve, then ignitor would shut off

It was a fairly simple repair to perform with the dryer in place. I simply opened the bottom/front access panel to start, the door removes if you pull up after opening. Then I disconnected the two and three wire connector to the two coils. Next I removed the bracket screws that fasten the coils to the valve assembly. This was a little difficult with the screw closest, because of the small clearance and #1 sized phillips(stubby would work well.) The rear screw I managed to remove by using both a small flathead screwdriver(hex shaped shaft) and an adjustable cresent wrench. At this point, it was a simple matter of installing the new coils and the bracket, and then reconnecting the two plugs. It almost made me want to do laundry.

It woud begin to heat and dry clothes then it would stop heating before the clothe dried.

Parts Select said 27% chance it was the coils and 26% chance it was moisture sensor. I ordered the coils and it did not fix the problem, my luck. I have now ordered moisture sensor and the next possible part, the cycling thermostat. If one of these solve the problem I will still have much less invested than a repairman would charge.

The blower wheel came apart and was rubbing on the housing.

I unplugged the dryer. Lifted the top, removed the two screws to the front and popped the shut off switch out of it's clip. Then removed the housing front. Getting the old hub off was not that hard but getting the new one on was a pain. I filed the motor shaft to get the rust and any burrs off. Then I had to fit the new wheel to the shaft. I used my pocket knife to open the hole in the wheel. After I got the clamp and clip on reassembly went pretty quick. I hope this is enough detail.

Dryer would heat up at startup but not stay hot for long. Took forever to dry clothes. Started smelling a very slight gas leak about a week before the problem started. I suspect the coils have been going lame for quite some time. The dryer heats up like it was new.

Downloaded a schematic of the dryer controls. Watched a UTUBE video of how to remove the front panel of a Maytag Performa dryer. It was pretty easy. Consulted your website and found out that bad coils are typical of the symptoms 46% of the time. I have bought parts from you before and happy with results.

Dryer worked but did not heat

  • Customer: Steven from Garden City NY

Followed troubleshooting steps. Checked thermal fuse (shorted)- OK. Checked igniter (about 70 ohms) - OK. checked flame sensor - (open) BAD (should read shorted). This part is normally shorted then opens when the igniter gets hot causing it to open and thus turns on the gas flow. An open flame sensor does not permit the igniter to turn on.

Watched how-to video provided on PartSelect website. Most time was spent cleaning out the cabinet of lint and other debris. I found over 5 bucks in loose change! I Found pulling the belt over the motor pulley to be the trickiest. Note: my dryer will be 30 years old come this September. I wonder how many more years I'll get out of it!
