After watching the on-line video associated with the idler pulley wheel and bearing, we took the dryer apart, removed the idler pulley wheel and bearing (both - although only one was bad), replaced it by just slipping it on and replacing the locking washer (that part took some time because we didn't have the proper tool). The drum support roller didn't even seem to be bad, but we replaced that also - just slipped the old one off and slipped the new one on. The belt was a little more difficult - to make sure it was all in the correct space (we made sure we marked the front of the drum when taking it out so we put it back the same way). We did not even have to disconnect any of the electrical connections - just layed the front panel to the side. I probably spend an equal amount of time vacuuming the accumulated lint inside the machine as the actual part replacement took. The dryer works beautifully - I think I have already done about 8 loads of laundry since the repair and it isn't making a sound.

Took it apart and drum rollers were almost completely gone!As a matter of fact rollers had separated from bearings.Very easy job,but took me longer than usual due to me not being properly prepared for job!I did not have a set of ring pliers,so I used needle nose and a screwdriver!Let me stress......make sure you have ring pliers and this job takes 30 minutes tops!!!!!!

1.Pulled the old knob off of the shaft (or rod) that was holding it. 2. Assembled the three parts of the new knob. 3. Placed the new knob on the shaft, but the knob wouldn't insert all the way. 4. Removed the new knob. 5. Discovered a metal band from around the shaft. This band had been part of the old knob. The knob's plastic sleeve had split and separated from the metal band inside it, and the metal band was still on the shaft. Removed the metal band by gripping it gently with pliers and sliding it off the shaft. 6. The new knob had a metal band in its correct location in the sleeve. Placed the new knob on shaft and gently pressed it all the way in.

I removed the dryer door to make the job easier on a tabletop. Removed the old seal which just popped out. I made sure to place the old seal down next to me exactly how I took it out in the event something went wrong, I could see which way it was facing. I pushed the ridged part of the new seal in the existing slot starting at the bottom....the trick was, I pulled and stretched the new seal ever so slightly as I pushed it into the slot and it went in beautifully! I am a 54 year old capable woman and was at first intimidated...but it was fine. I had to cut the seal a little at the end as it was a bit long.

When the dryer stopped working, I checked the two switches to see if they were good. The start button checked out OK but the switch on the door read bad. Ordered the part with the part number and put on when it arrived. Just a matter of disconnecting and reconnecting three wires. Very simple

The dryer knob to set the dryer going was turning, but no longer useful in setting a cycle!

I was another one of those women using a pliers to get my 14 year-old, otherwise perfectly functioning, dryer to work! I called two appliance stores that sold Maytags and decided to look online myself when I found out that is what they were doing to find the part I needed. PartSelect came up with a wonderfully easy video and everything I needed to do this repair by myself. Until I saw the video, I had no idea the white flat "knob" came off, so that was a big help. The only hard part was getting the parts separated to put the new dryer skirt knob on! Cheers everyone! This is a success story, and anyone who has a screw driver and pliers can fix this problem!

Took the entire dryer apart after watching a video online. Replaced the rollers & the belt & put dryer back together. Since I am a machine builder by trade I knew how to do some of this after watching the video, but not sure how easy this would be for someone untrained.
