This part fixes the following symptoms:
This roller shaft acts as the axel for the drum roller. Also known as drum roller axle.
This roller shaft washer is just under an inch in diameter and is used for some of Whirlpool's brands of clothes dryers.Sold individually.
This front glide kit comes with a blue plastic glide, a brown cork pad, and two metallic rivets. Two kits are required per appliance. Also, a rivet tool is required for this kit - purchase locally.
I had to remove the door first. Then the retaining brackets that hold the upper lid on. This also allowed removal of the front cover. After releasing the tension of the drum belt, I removed the drum and replaced the drum roller in suspect. Installation was reverse in order. Don't know why I waited so long to do such a simple job.

Read the instructions included with the parts, removed the 2 screws on the front of the dryer. Removed a couple of wire connections and 4 screws that held the drum in place. Moved the drum enough to have access to the roller supports. I removed the nut from the back of the supports with a 1/2" wrench. Placed the new supports on the old support pins and reinstalled them. Put it all back together. Probably the most difficult task was getting the drive belt back on the drum correctly. I was done in just over 1 hour.
My 10 plus year old Maytag gas dryer was making a lot noise. I ordered a new exhaust fan and also ordered a new belt and two new rollers figuring once I got the thing opened up I should replace a few parts. First unplugged the dryer (very important!).Took the front panel off by removing the two screws at the bottom. Disconnected the two connectors for the door switch. Used socket wrench to remove the four hex screws that hold the front of the dryer drum in place. Put my arms inside the dryer to the back of the drum and slide the old belt off the drum. Pulled the drum out and put aside. Used socket wrench to remove several hex screws which hold the fan cover in place. Used needlenose plyers to remove one clip and a pair of circlip pliers to remove the second clip (had to buy these pliers at HD for $20). Took old fan off, put new on one, put clips back on. Replaced fan cover with hex screws. Then onto the rollers. These are held in place by similar clips as the fan and need to be removed with circlip pliers (really tough to do otherwise with trashing the clips). Took the old rollers off (they were actually in decent shape by I replaced them anyhow). Oil the shaft the spin on. Put new rollers on. Put clips back on. Now new fan and rollers. Vacuumed all the lint out from around the inside. Took old belt off (noting that ridged side goes along inside of motor pulley). Put new belt around the motor and tensioner pulley and rested the rest of the belt against the inside of the dryer. Put the barrel back into the dryer against the back. Put my arms inside the dryer and managed to get the belt around the drum in the proper position (take note of proper position when you take the old belt off). Put front drum holder back in place with 4 hex screws (make sure felt "glides" are not folded in and are positioned properly). Put front panel back on (2 screws on bottom). Don't forget to reconnect the door switch. Plug into power. Test. Quite as a mouse.
took the drum out and installed the roller.
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.
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.
Followed the directions which were included with the parts - this was a washer dryer combo and found it easier to remove the tension spring on the the idler roller assembly to set the belt in place and then re attach the spring to the frame body.
watch the video. drum roller failed(noise) but looking at the rest of the dryer I desided to replace belt(cracking) and front guides(worn through in places) also discovered it wasn't mice making nests in dryer it was stuff coming through where light protective lense should have been. The video is better instruction than I could give. Thanks.
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.
1st watched videos on making repairs on installing drum support roller kit,front glide kit and replacing tumbler belt.These repairs took approx 30 minutes but, didn't stop the rumbling. Went to a blog site that stated if these repairs didn't stop the noise I should take the tumbler belt off and see if the noise is coming from the motor area it was and further investigation revealed it was the plastic blower wheel,the flat spot on the blower shaft had worn out causing the blower wheel to rumble and vibrate. This repair took 15 minutes after watching the video on blower wheel repair. Runs better then new.
Followed excellent instructions. Removed front panel of dryer and removed front bulkhead to get to the blower assembly. Removed the cover on the blower assy and saw that blower was damaged and loose on the shaft. Using snap ring pliers, removed the snap ring, then using ordinary pliers, removed the clip spring that holds blower tight on the shaft. Replaced blower and reassembled. This was probably the problem. However, since I'd ordered the drum support rollers, I replaced those, too. To do so, used rear access panel to take belt off idler pulley (to relieve the tension) then removed drum. Using snap ring pliers I removed the old rollers, replaced with the new and reassembled. The roller shafts looked fine, so I didn't replace. Reassembly of the drum and belt required an additional set of hands, so I called a friend. Note: it helps a lot to remove the two screws holding the top of the dryer in place. Then you can swivel it a bit to allow access to the top of the drum--helpful in getting the belt back on correctly. Whole job took maybe 1-1 1/2 hours. Dryer works like a charm! (Incidentally, the parts arrived within a day or two of my placing the order, and I didn't opt for the expensive shipping!)
The repair was very simple, the information video was a very big help. Followed the steps just by watching the video. All the parts came apart and back together as stated in the video. Cannot be any easier. I used all the parts I order, but all it really needed was the drum support roller kit (noise) and the idler pulley (worn pulley). Dryer is quiet once again. WooHoo.
I wasn't sure how to access the belt inside so I went online looking for a diagram. I came accross the PartSelect website and found the awesome video instructions on how to disassemble, change each part and reassemble everything. I discovered I had a broken belt and the drum rollers were bad. I ordered the parts from PartSelect on a Wednesday and they arrived on that Friday. I started the repair on Saturday morning and following the video repair instructions a couple hours later my dryer was back in business for a very reasonable dollar amount. Thanks to PartSelect for making my repair so much easier!!
Followed directions provided in video which are very clear and helpful. Took your expert about 15 - 20 minutes, but in reality it takes about an 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours which included cleaning out the whole cabinet area. Did not need the idler arm but did not want to find out after taking everything apart that a new one was needed.Also suggest drawing a sketch of how the belt goes around the drum,idler and motor for reference when reinstalling.
followed directions from online video and replaced drum rollers, roller shafts, belt, and idler pulley. Also replaced worn plastic fan attached to motor. Now dryer is quiet and good as new.
