All three baffles fell out of dryer drum; one by one in a week time span; of course the warranty expired in May of 2007. Figures!

Had to remove the dryer door and back top screws to access the drum.
Once this was accomplished all that had to be done was to turn the drum by hand and replace each baffle and (two) screws each.

UNPLUG THE UNIT First, I removed the 2 screws from bottom of the front panel. I removed the panel and disconnected the switch wires. Next, I removed the 4 bolts from the front tumbler support with a socket. I removed the tumbler, but left the belt inside. I cleaned up the inside as much as possible and removed both support rollers with a 1/2 in. straight wrench. (Save the nuts.) I removed the clips to reuse with the new shafts, attached the new washers and rollers, and resecured the shafts in place. Next reset the tumbler with the belt slacked over the back support. Let the tumbler rest on the blower pipe to allow slack to bring the belt over the tumbler and around the drive and idler wheel. Then, set tumbler back into rear seat and reattach front support and panel. I tested the unit before attaching the front panel. Works great!!

Removed front cover, removed old heating unit, installed new thermostat,heating coil inside the dryer and finally replaced the fuse in the front. The main complication was reaching the screws for the heating coil, not really complex.

Motor burnt a phase

If you are cursed with owning a Maytag product then you'll be glad PartSelet.com is in business. I get all my parts here.

My dryer motor burnt a phase. The tear down was very straight forward since there isn't much to a dryer. I did the tear down in the driveway. The dryer was full of lint so I blasted it with compressed air to clean it up. Keep all your parts in labeled baggies as you do the tear down. Reassembly goes much faster. The hardest part about changing the motor was getting the motor clips off. They are tough buggers. I used slip-joint pliers & finally popped them off. This job is simply enough for the average monkey. Just use the diagrams on partselect.com if you forget where something goes.

I shipped everything via fedex 2-day. It took 5 days to get here. partselect shipped it fast. fedex was the problem. I guess the boys at fedex have a public education is they think 5=2.

Dryer made a buzzing sound when start button pushed. Would not start.

Took off front. Removed door. Removed drum support. Removed drum and belt. Made sure motor was correct size and fit. Removed blower wheel. Disconnected wire plug from motor and slid motor out of blower wheel. Replaced everything in reverse order. Figuring out belt tensioning position was a trip, but finally got it. Vacuumed out all the lint. Amazingly it worked!
