I've never even opened this dryer before so I looked at one of the installation videos PartSelect has. I found one using my model, which made it really easy. I removed the front panel and door, then lifted the top of the dryer up on it's hinges: that's a great feature because you need the top out of the way to remove the drum. I took the belt off the drum, lifted it up and pulled it straight out. I did buy a pair of snap ring pliers to remove the snap ring off the drum support shaft. I think you really must have those to remove and replace the rings. Be careful when removing the snap rings. I shot the first one across the room like it was a rubber band. We had a good laugh. I used a wrench to hold the nut on the backside of the roller shaft and unscrewed it. I screwed the new roller shafts on, slipped the drum rollers on them, then carefully used the snap ring pliers to place the rings on the front of the shaft to hold the rollers on. While I had the unit opened up, I figured I should go ahead and replace the multi rib belt. I put the ribbed side on the drum and sat the drum on the rollers . The tricky part is now getting down on the ground, reaching under the drum for the belt. Make sure the belt isn't twisted anywhere on the drum or in your hands while you pull the belt under the idler pulley. Hold the belt ribbed sides together while feeding the belt under the pulley. It takes a good deal of strength to move the pulley over so you can hook the end of the belt on the shaft. Once you've gotten that attached, put your hand inside the drum and rotate it a few times to make sure you connected it properly and that you placed the belt in the right spot on the drum. It was easy to see the black stripe around the drum where I'd taken off the old one.

Turned off gas and unplugged dryer1) Removed bottom front panel2) lifted top panel up like a car hood3) Removed door springs4) disconnected electrial connections to door unit, removed door unit5) removed drum, scraped old felt from drum6) glued new felt with a very strong glue (nanoglue or gorilla glue, same thing), let it dry overnight7) secured back inside panel, replaced drum and put dryer back together.
The dryer disassembly was pretty straightforward. The drive belt slips over the drum and easily prys over the drive and idler pulleys. The drum seal is held in place with the existing metal tabs. The old drum glides had to be drilled out and the new ones pop rivited in easily. Overall a rather simple process and the dryer sounds and drys like new again for minimal expenditure and time. Probably would have cost $200+ had I had a service person do the work.
1 - unscrewed door2 - made a mess because the directions did not work for my dryer3 - figured it out = eventually4 - popped loose the front panel5 - unscrewed metal bars (that were holding the top down in the front)6 - lift front like a hood on a car7 - unscrew the rest of the front until the drum was loose and I could get to the felt strip8 - glue new strip on where the old strip was = to the front and back plates that hold the drum 9 - put it back together :)
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.

Opening the cabinet allowed for a through examination and listing of the worn components: 1 defective idler and mounting shaft, 1 worn drive belt, 2 sagging felt seals, 1 worn glide surface, 1 dead light bulb. Replacement parts arrived in two days. After a through vacuuming, reassembly was a snap. Both roller/shafts and glide pads were replaced as matched pairs. Unit operates now as factory new. I am not a trained repair person but simple logic, sufficient care, and attention to a clean assembly routine is all it took.
i removed the front cover .then i removed the two screws thet held the top and then raised it up then silde out the drum. replaced the rollersthat the drum runs on. then just put it back together. not a hard job at all.
I removed the screws from the back, ( top ) then i removed the door, then the front cover.. then the blower shroud, then the front tumbler. and the drum after that it was easy, This was easy to work on.
I watched all of the video provided for repairing each of the parts and used them several times! They were excellent and beneficial! I used the suggestions provided and found the involved correction to do exactly as planned. The end result was very good and the dryer now works like it is supposed to without any noises. I thank you for all of your help.
