This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
This blower wheel clamp is less than an inch long and is used for some clothes dryers to hold the blower wheel firmly in place. This green clamp is made of metal.
At 100 inches in length, this dryer drum belt is 3/8 of an inch wide and has five ridges. This belt is all black in color and it is made entirely of rubber.
I took the access panel off the back, realized that belt was in very bad shape. Ordered a belt when I got that changed I put it back together and it still had a clunking noise. Found out that the blower wheel was rounded off where it goes over the shaft. So to change that I took the two front screws off, then the four hex screws off of the tumbler guide. There were eight or so screws over the blower wheel, took those out and the clamp on the blower wheel then used the snap ring pliers for the snap ring, then changed the wheel. Problem solved. This website is very helpful I would not have attempted to fix my dryer without this website.

My husband took off the front panel and noticed that the center of the wheel was melted. We went on to this website and confirmed the noise with other customers. We ordered the part - received it in 1 day and the dryer was repaired and back together within a 1/2 hr. Part was as is - istructions excellent.
From the sound it made I thought it was the rear rollers. That happened once before on another dryer.After removing all the parts I foung out they were fine.First unplug the dryer:Then remove the dryer front door panel.2 screws at the bottom of the door. Lift cover from the bottom of the door, it is kind of on a top hinge. On the bottom left hand corner you will see the plastic cover for the blower. It has 6 small screws that hold the cover on. Once the cover is off you will see the blower wheel. Use a pair of Snap Ring Pliers to remove snap ring at end of the shaft. Use a pair of needle nose pliers to remove the clamp around the blower wheel that holds it onto the shaft. Slip off the old part. That was the rumbling noise.
I removed the two screws and removed the front panel, next I removed the fan cover that also directs the air movement into the drying tub. I then removed the external snap ring that held the fan in place on the shaft. The fan very easily slid right off of the shaft. It was reassembled in the opposite order. A very easy procedure. The entire procedure was not more than one hour.
Removed two screws on bottom of front panel. Lifted bottom of front panel, it then it dropped down and was moved to the left side. Removed 4 socket screws and removed drum front cover. Replaced felt strip, removed belt and replaced. Replaced two idler pulleys in back. Removed blower housing front cover, removed blower wheel and replaced. Installed front drum glides after drilling out rivets from the old glides. Vacuumed entire inside thoroughly and reassembled.
Removed (2) screws at bottom of dryer. Removed about 5 screws on blower housing. Used pliers to remove clamp and replaced the blower. Installed everything in reverse. I looked at what others did before me and it made it easy.
I followed the instructions given by other DIYs. The rubber band for the belt was a great suggestion, however having no rubber band nearby, I used a zip-tie that worked out perfectly.The only tool that I wished I had is a pair of split ring pliers. Not having a pair, used a pair of needle nose and a very small screw driver to provide the leverage to remove the washer.After following the instructions that came with the belt on how to properly align it to the motor wheel and tension wheel, I plugged everything back in and started it up. Sounded like it was brand new.I decided not to replace the rollers or drum guides as they looked to be in good shape.
Found the answer online, ordered the blower from here. I used a pair of scissors in place of a snap ring pliers. Otherwise went smoothly.
took off front of dryer then front of drum supports then took the blower fan off and replaced it. pulled the drum out replaced the shafts and rollers put it back together was not a very hard job.
Removed front cover screws at the bottom, using a stubby screwd river and a 2x4 under the front. Killed the circuit breaker at the panel, removed two wires on fron door. Removed 4 5/16 inch hex screws from drum front cover. Removed 6 1/4 inch hex screws from the cover over the fan blades. These are hard to reach in the back and left sides. I had to use my pliers and the nutdriver socket and my fingers to get them out. Using the pliers I removced the retainer clip from the old fan blades and use the tips of my long nosed pliers to remove the C-clip from the end of the motor shaft, ruining my old pair of pliers. ($15 for a new c-clip retainer removal tool.) removed the old fan baldes, pushed the new blades onto the motor shaft,using a bit of force to pop it on. Replaced the C-clip and the new retainer clip. Replaced 5 of the 1/4 inch hex screws. The screw closest to the drum would not line up, being about 1/4 inch off. Didn't seem to make any difference. Made sure the drum was seated on the rear rollers and replaced the drum front cover, making sure the air tube was seated in the front of the fan assembly. Replaced the 4 5/16 inch hex screws, routed the front door wires behind this piece and replaced the wires on the door switch. Pushed the front door up into the upper cover, lowered the bottom into place and repalaced the two front screws. Reomved the 2x4 and reset the circuit breaker at the panel. Tested the dryer, noting that the noise had stopped. Totat time about 40 minutes.
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.
I took two screws out to remove front panel, took out four screws to remove front drum panel,took out seven screws that hold cover to blower assembly , took off C clip and removed blower wheel. replaced in reverse.
Using a blowup of the appliance, I removed the two screws that hold the front on and removed. Using the correct sized socket, I removed the housing that holds the front of the dryer drum in place and disconnected the wire to it. I then removed a shield near the blower unit and unbolted the front of the blower assembly. I could not get my power drill into position to take off the very bottom bolt but found that it would pivot forward enough to gain access to the blower fan. I then busted a knuckle trying to get the keeper washer off of the shaft (don't have a C ring tool). With some cussing and another scrapped knuckle, I took off the keeper ring and removed the fan, replaced with new fan and ring, broke the C ring trying to replace it so just left it off. I then went to cleanse wounds and apply dressings.
I removed the screws to the front panel which allowed access to the inside. There were four screws that held the drum in place. I removed the drum to have more working room. Once inside, I removed the screws, clamp and clips that held the blower wheel assembly in place. After removal, I replaced the old blower with the new one and installed the new belt. I reassembled everything and the dryer runs like a new one. Very easy job that saved me lots of money. Also, the diagrams on your site were very helpful.
