I unplugged dryer. Took the top back plate off. Removed the dial and the screw on the front. Removed the two screws from the back and pulled the timer out. Pulled wires off one at a time and put them on the new time in the exact place and screwed it in. Put the screw and front plate on and plugged dryer in and checked it. It worked. Unplugged dryer again and put back plate back on. Done

My husband first had to determine the problem he opened up the back of the dryer (Maytag) model. He determine one of the drum support rollers and bracket needed to be replaced it was really worn out. Once he installed the new parts the dryer no longer made any noise. :)

actually your site was very helpful in describing each part that i chose to replace. one helpful hint to someone when installing the dryer pulley is to use the parts box to hold up the drum when installing.it seemed to be the perfect size. great site!

Loud humming noise then motor would stop

  • Customer: Clarke from Lynnwood, WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

The dryer would make a loud humming noise and the seize up. I would reset the breaker and the dryer would run briefly and then seize up. I opened the dryer and cleaned out all the lint on the motor but it did not help. I spun the motor shaft and felt like a bearing inside had failed. I watched Steve in the video-he was awesome and made it all simple- and ordered the correct parts. I decided to replace the rollers, belt, and pulley as well as the motor. The repair is very easy-and worth it- EXCEPT one piece of advice. BUY the blower fan that attaches to the motor. Mine did not come off easily like in the video. The plastic shaft deteriorated under pressure from the wrench. I was forced to use a heat gun to melt/then cut the blower fan from the motor. It was not easy but don't let it deter you from the repair. I used a table vice but never could remove the remanents of the blower fan shaft from the motor. The repair was a snap after that. Great site for parts and help.

loud squealing when running

I followed the video provided by PartSelect. It pretty much went exactly like the video said it would. I was pretty sure the belt or idler pully must be the culprit, but I didn't even know how to open the thing up until I saw your video. I would likely still be putting up with the squealing without that video. Now the dryer is nice and quiet. -Mike

Motor noise followed by shutdown

Before placing your order remove the motor. At the rear of the motor is a plastic nut which is how the fan is attached. Mine was stuck and needed to be removed with a cutoff wheel from the back side of the dryer. This delayed the project several more days as I had already received the motor before figuring out the fan was stuck.

Side wheel of drum support wore through bearing, sever noise at each rotation.

The only added thing to know is how to remove the lower kick plate. This is not on later models. Other wise all the directions are the same as for models with a full solid front panel. Immediately below the dryer door, at the right and left end, there is a plastic clip similar to the one holding the top panel to the vertical side panels. Insert a flat screw driver or putty knife releasing the plastic clip. This will allow the kick plate to fall forward on rings at the bottom of the plate. Release springs at either side of the dryer door (reattach later using pliers or a hook). Unscrew the nut screws at either side of the dryer door. Remove the door panel and the kick plate and put to one side. Reverse to reattach. I replaced the wheel tension part and the belt at the same time. I put the dryer on its back to install the wheel, belt and tension part. I used strips of scotch tape to hold the belt in place at the top and sides of the drum, while I looped the belt on the tension wheel and the driver wheel. I used the bungee cord to hold the top in place while I put the whole drier on it back. Good luck and have a vacuum handy to suck out years of dangerous lint....

Watched a video on utube and realized how easy this looked, took my dryer apart to see the belt broken in half and the idler pulley in pieces. Found Partselect on the internet and ordered my parts. Partselect was awsome, website was easy to navigate, ordered my parts and they were at my house the very next day and were the correct parts. Cleaned all the lint and dust out of the inside of my machine, installed new parts and put it back together. Works great and is still running strong. A service call, plus parts (with thier mark up) could have easily been $150.00 - $200.00 dollars. this repair was complete in about an hour and only cost me $37.50
