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.
I first pull the front cover off by taking out the two screws under the lip of the lower front. I then took offf the two wire for the door switch. Removed the four nut driver screws in the front of the drum and then the outside rear. Pulled the drum and pulled out the worn out Drum support Roller. I then replaced the Pulley tensioner and greased with high temp greese. The belt instructions worked to the T .
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!!
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.
I placed shims in it to temporarily repair it and ordered replacements from you for when the time comes that I have to replace the fan and other wear items.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
