It could not have been simpler. I removed the old dial and took the 3 pieces apart. I snapped the 2 non-broken pieces onto the new dial and put it back on the dryer. The site was very helpful in identifying the part and providing instructions for assembly. Took less than 15 minutes.

Opened the dryer door and took out the two screws holding the door hinges to the frame, and the corresponding two screws on the other side. Pulled the front of the dryer forward and down, and unhooked it from the bottom. Undid the two screws under the front lip of the top to lift the top; it flipped back and rested against the wall. Rotate the drum till the baffle you want to replace is on top, undo the two screws, replace baffle. I also tightened the screws in the other baffles; a couple of them were a little loose. While you're in there, get your vacuum cleaner and clean out the lint and stuff. Then reverse all the steps to put things back together again. There's a YouTube video on how to take the front/top off the dryer which was helpful.

I googled the model number and partselect.com was the first hit. I picked the the correct parts and it even showed me a video on how to replace the parts. Pretty easy to do and saved me from buying a new dryer:-) The repair was done in 20 minutes.

the repair was a breeze i think it took more time to get the door off than it did to do the actual repair. there are 2 hinges on the door(on the right side) and 2 clips on the left side, after removing these the front of the dryer just pops off. once the door and the front panel are off you need to turn the barrel to get to the side with the broken baffle,it seems if you work from the right side you have a little more room,then just line it up and use a small rachet and socket to tighten it up.this is also a good time to vaccuum inside the dryer to help prevent a lint fire. and that's it very easy

I replaced all of the moving parts except for the motor. I purchased an Arrow rivet gun for around $15.00 at Lowe's and the O-ring pliers for around $15.00. Both of these tools are needed to complete the replacement of the front glide kit (rivet gun) and the drum rollers ( o-ring pliers). I would consider the job as moderately easy for a do it yourself person. My Maytag is 15years old and I hope to get another 15 out of it, ok maybe I am stretching it, I"ll try till it dies. DB

Dryer was making an awful clunking sound.

I pulled it apart and found the bad roller. I did a Bing search on the part number and then went to a Maytag site with parts. I got through the drawings quickly and ordered the part. I was disappointed that US Mail was not offered as a shipping alternative for free.
The part arrived in three days. I again pulled it apart and had difficulty getting the snap ring off. I used a screw driver to eventually get it off. I reassembled the Dryer with the new drum wheel, however, I could not figure out a way to get the snap ring on so I went to the Home Depot (1.5 miles) and got the only snap ring tool they had. When I got home, I had the ring back on in a minute and the dryer back together in about 10 minutes. My wife says it runs like new.
