This part fixes the following symptoms:
I unscrewed the door hinges and the screw + plastic retaining clips opposite the door hinges. That allowed me to remove the fron of the dryer which, in turn allowed me to access the baffle screws on the outside of the dryer drum. It is VERY handy to have a finger wratchet with which to undo these baffle screws. Old baffle out/new baffle in and button up the front of the machine. Pretty easy.I would like to say that Partselect did a great job in all aspects of this repair. The website ordering format was very easy to use, the price was great, and the part arrived quickly and well packed.

Step one:Go to YouTube and search for appropriate video. Then follow simple steps. Remove front, tilt back top, install new baffels, clean area and vents, and reinstall components. Hardest part was putting back on the dryer vent connection to wall outlet.
Took off door...pulled off front reached under drum and screwed in two screws....replaced front... screwed door back on...done
There are screws in the door frame when opened... Remove them and the front panel can be lifted with the top of the Dryer... Once the inner bulk-head is removed , the barrel can be removed.. The belt routing can be tricky if you don't look at it before it is removed.. This will save you time....Since I intended to replace both drum rollers /shafts, I just removed the 1/2" nut on the back of the shaft with an open end wrench for the right side, due to clearance, socket can be used on the left ... I also replaced the idler pulley, you don't need to replace the arm unless it is broken... Replace the belt as recommended for this Maytag model, which is smooth side w/ writing goes against the barrel...I then took some time to completely vacuum out the cabinet, the motor attracts all kinds of dust that should be removed.... I decided to go ahead an replace the Heating-element... Takes another 30 minutes but works way better than the old one ( energy -saver), as I have turned the dryer heat down to Medium and it still dries faster.... You need another set of hands to put the barrel back in and hold it until you get the bulk-head re-installed. After that it is back to a a one man job.. The Dryer now runs as quiet and efficient, as a new one... The Electric Motor will run for a 20+ years , as long as the Dryer turns easily... Open the cabinet ( now that you know how to do it ) , every other year and vacuum it out... There is a big difference in the amount of lint that is caught in the trap when the cabinet is clean..I figured I saved $350 by doing this vs. buying a new Dryer and that is huge @ Christmas time ! .. Well worth a Sunday afternoon.

Read the instructions posted by others and it was easy. Removed the 2 screws holding hinges and removed door. Removed the 2 screws opposite door hinges where door latches. Removed secrews on each side holding top on. Raised top and used a bungee cord to keep top up. Rotated drum and replaced all three baffles. Closed everything up and repair was completed.
Unplugged dryer. Removed dryer door with philips screwdriver. Removed front dryer panel aftr loosening philips screws on each side of door. Then at top right corners I used a nutdriver to remove clips/hooks that hold down top of dryer. I then lifted top of dryer up- it is hinged at back. I could then manually turn drum to access screws that hold baffles. I held each baffle in place with left hand and turned in screws with right hand until tight, using nut driver. I vacuumed out inside of dryer. Reassembled top, front panels and door. plugged in and tested. All good.
We went to Lowe's to look at a new washer/dryer set. We told the sales lady what our dryer was doing, she said she had that problem before and told us it was probably the rollers had gone bad. The next morning, 5 a.m my wife couldn't sleep so she took the dryer front off, pulled out the tumbler and found the rollers, the lady was right . My wife already had your web site pulled up on the computer so I could look to see what parts I needed. We called to order our parts, we were told it would be 2-5 days before they would get here, they were here the NEXT DAY!!! That was awesome!! I put the new roller on, my wife put everything back together, she turned the dryer on and.... it was so quiet we weren't sure if it was on so I opened the door and held the button to watch it turning, peacefully. Thank you all and the sales lady at Lowe's for saving us $1200. We did our repair with your parts and only spent $85.00.
