Replace idler pully and belt

After viewing repair video I used those instructions, after removing drum place new belt on drum, I used scotch tape to hold belt in place, tape belt with 2 inch strip about every foot around drum, leave extra belt that connects to drive motor folded down and taped to drum. After installing drum connect belt to drive motor and roll drum to remove tape. This will keep belt from sliding out of place on drum while installing.

Living overseas and caring for a dinosaur dryer

My friend Saeed did the repair (which was really maintenance) for me. What I really want to communicate is how WONDERFUL it is to use PartSelect for folks like us living overseas and keeping alive an ancient gas dryer (not available in Morocco and infinitely cheaper than electric). We don't have a local Maytag parts dealer, so we feel lucky to have this option of using the diagrams to order exactly what we need to keep our economical and efficient gas dryer going.

Loud noise

The actual promlem was the blower fan blade I also replaced the belt and other moving parts just because ! The only thing needed to do from the back is remove the 4 screws holding a metal plate on the lower right to gain access to the belt tensioner. EVERYTHING else is done from the front Don't learn the hard way (I did). Part Select was wonderful.

Horrible squeaking when running

I did it exactly the way the video showed it. I thought I would have to take it out to the pole barn and spend 5-6 hours on it. Because of the excellent video, it was much easier than I thougt it would be.

Rumble and sqeaking noise when running dryer

When I ordered the 2 drum support roller kits, part select suggested ordering the belt tension idler pulley as well. I figured this idler pulley has not been changed in 30 + years, it's time to replace. Sure glad I did, I checked the pulley when I had the dryer apart and the idler pulley was in bad shape and it was a cinch to replace while I had the dryer apart. I viewed the video supplied by part select twice before beginning to replace 2 drum support roller kits and the belt tension idler pulley. It was most helpful!!! What I planned as a 2 hour repair, was completed in 1 hour from the time I gathered the tools from my toolbox until they were back in the toolbox and dryer purring quietly. Thanks to the very detailed video and correct parts shipped in a timely manner!! 1970'S/80's model maytag washer and dryer are the best! And part select keeps them running!!

Very noisy, especially on startup.

I ordered a new belt, idler pulley and drum rollers. When I got it apart, I found the blower fan was slipping on the shaft, so replaced that also. Runs very quietly now. Fantastic service from Parts Select.

Progressively louder rumble, especially on startup

Watched the video, removed the front panel, removed the 4 screws from the tumbler frame, and removed the blower cover. Snap ring off, old blower fan off, new one on, new compression ring, snap ring on, Put back together. Done.

Old belt and idler were OK. What surprized me was the amount of lint, fuzz, coins and dust in the blower housing. This was potentially a fire hazard and now its working perfectly and some peace of mind from a fire standpoint. The video really made it happen for me.

Excessive noise when operating

Utilizing the online schematics, I disassembled the dryer, marked and disconnected all wires, and removed the drum. Once the drum was removed, I thoroughly cleaned the inside of the dryer and removed all lint accumulation from the heating element, motor, and blower fan areas. I replaced the front guides and drum support rollers/shafts, belt and idler pulley. I reassembled the dryer and it worked! Be sure to lay all the screws and parts in a logical sequence as you disassemble the dryer, it makes reassembly much easier.

Screeching noise from inside dryer

It was simply a matter of finding the two screws at the lower front face. After that, the dryer come apart easily. The drum support rollers were held on with one nut each. i lubricated them with Dow Corning silicon hi temp grease. The belt was installed the same as the old one was removed. Insructions were easy to follow as was the re assembly of the dryer. All the parts fit correctly and were the right replacement items.

The dryer was making a loud noise that sounded like it was about to quit, it was!

My husband and a friend decided to take the dryer apart to see what the problem might be and if it could be repaired. I had already decided the dryer is about 14 years old, it is history. They discovered the roller was broken, and other parts such as the belt, a pulley and so on. I went online to www.partselect.com. I was surprised to see diagrams of the inside of my dryer. That helped us order the right parts. I ordered the parts for a total of 68.00 (including shipping) The parts came, the dryer was fixed and runs like new. I saved 400.00, because I did not have to buy a new dryer. I am very proud that we were able to use this site to locate our needs and fix the dryer. The diagrams helped us perform the task without calling a repair person.
Thank you for this opportunity!

Dryer squeeked for a short time when first started

Took the two screws out of the front of the dryer. Tilted the bottom out until the clips in the top came loose. Disconnected the door switch and put the front panel aside.
Removed 4 screws holding front drum support in place using small socket set. Pulled drum support off and set aside.
Took note of how the belt ran through the idler pulley, pulled up idler pulley until the belt slipped off idler and motor pulley. Drum pulls straight out of dryer.
With the drum out there is plenty of room to get to the screw holding the idler pulley arm in place, remove it so you can pull the old pulley and washers off shaft. Reassemble using new parts and reattach idler arm.
Put the drum back in place, wrap new belt around drum (non groove side against drum), thread the belt around the motor shaft and work it back around the idler pulley. This was the hardest part of the job since your working in tight quarters and you can only fell what your doing.
One the belt is in place, rotate the drum by hand to make sure the belt tracks properly. Finish cleaning up any dust accumulation inside the dryer/fan assembly. Reattach the front drum support, reattach the door switch wires and reassemble the front panel by tilting the panel until the top catches, swing down into place and attach bottom with the two screws. Done!
