Dryer stopped turning

I had to punch out the disc on the right side and remove the exaust pipe so I could get my hands in to remove the broken pulley assembly. Then put the new one on tightened the nut and bolt. Put the spring back on and the belt. Added a bit of grease. Put the exhaust back on. Plugged it in and I was done. The most difficult thing was finding the part on my phone screen since my pc is on the fritz. Once I got the proper definition of what I was looking for it was easy.

Dryer made squelching noise for couple weeks then stopped turning

I unplugged the power started taking the housing apart it was all exploratory to me as it has been many years since I worked on one. Pry the top front up with a screw driver remove two screws at the top front and two hold down brackets at the top rear flip the top onto some boxes stacked up in back of the dryer. took digital pictures of 2 sets of wires in the front and disconnected them pulled the front panel up off the 2 holding clips swung it out to the right . Removed the 4 screws holding the hub on and removed it slid the drum off the felt pad ( after I put an arrow on it with a marker) and out of the housing. Now comes my dilemma the idler lever shaft was totally screwed up and the belt was laying on the floor of the dryer housing so I had know reference to how the new one should look or the pattern of the belt. I ordered the new pulley from part select .com but it would not take my credit card so I called their 888 # it turned out their service is out of canada and my card was not good out of the states so I used a different visa I received the part in 1 day however it does not come with any directions so I referred to other repair stories on their website but everyone their had their old ones in tact to refer to. I put it back on as best as I could figure but the belt pattern was my new problem every way I tried the belt was to loose I figured the belt must have streched I measured it and it seemed a little long so I ordered a new one again the part came in 1 day. But again no directions came with it. I went back to the partselect.com hoping to find a diagram but no luck there. I found another website with six diagrams to choose from picked the one that seemed most logically to work. I put it all back together and it works. It makes a repetitive clunking noise like it has a half a pair of sneakers in it but it seems to run alright. Its only 2 years old and my freinds told me buy a Maytag and I won't need the extended warranty Yeah right Live and learn

Dryer would vibrate and make a loud bad bearing sound.

I began by disassembling the dryer to diagnose the problem. I discovered the belt had been riding on a section of a broken idler pulley as well as wearing a groove into the idler pulley bracket. I removed the broken parts and went to the Internet for replacement parts. Three days later the parts arrived and I began reassembly. I found it a little difficult to replace the drum with the belt in position but found it much easier to recruit some assistance during this phase. Another factor with the difficulty was that I hadn't paid real close attention to the webbing direction of the belt around the pulley and there were no diagrams depicting the proper direction of the new belt. I did figure it out relatively quickly but would advise paying very close attention to parts positioning during disassembly.
