The blower had lost its key and was not attached to the motor. To do the repair: Remove the front cover, remove the lint screen assembly, remove the front of the blower housing. Use snap ring pliers to remove the blower wheel and install the new one. Reassemble and your done.
I removed the two screws holding the front cover and set the cover aside, then the two screws at the top of the dryer and unplugged and tagged wires going to the front panel and door assembly and set the front door and panel aside. Next I removed the 4 screws inside the tub attaching the lint filter and exhaust duct, and then the screws holding the blower cover. Then I removed the snap ring holding the blower to the motor shaft and pulled the blower off, slid the new blower on, and reinstalled the snap ring. While the unit was apart, since the lint filter felt gasket was out, I cleaned the gasket groove and cemented the gasket in place with Gorilla Glue. Finally, I reassembled all parts.
four screws removed the front and angled bottom panels exposing the blower wheel and duct work. It was just another few screws to remove the control panel and main duct, exposing the blower housing. 4 more screws and a snap ring came off, then I removed the old blower wheel and replace it with the new one, fitted the seal, reassembled everything in the reverse order of dissassembly, and voila! A quite efficient clothes dryer again. Better than new.Parts Select accepted my order on a Friday and I received my parts from a Pennsylvania distribution center on Saturday. Total out of pocket expense about $30 - significantly cheaper and quicker than had I called in a service person to perform the repair. Parts diagram and information provided online by Parts Select made it easy to identify the required parts and how things went together, making this repair almost as easy as looking in the phone book for a repair guy.
Unplugged dryer. Removed two screws and removed front of dryer disconnecting the wires from the front. Removed 4 screws and blue wire allowing the me to take the shroud off. Removed blower fan cover by taking out the screws and pulling down. Used pliers to take off clamp on blower fan and then had to use snap ring pliers to remove snap ring. Pulled blower fan off, replaced with new and put back on snap ring and clamp. Reinstalled blower cover, Removed drum by cutting belt (noted the direction of the belt around the idler pulley). Replaced belt (decided since I was going to be in the dryer and it is 14 years old I would replace belt as well) and drum. Reinstalled shroud and front cover. Dryer is very very quiet now.
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.
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!)
My dryer had two issues the FIRST: Sounded like a mack truck. That was a replacement of the roller wheels and pully wheel, they were worn down to their metal and that fixed that sound immediately. But then I was left with a sound that was clunky and sounded right at the beginning and made a big sound when the dryer ended. Turns out the blower wheel was completely worn down in the center so it wasn't gripping the metal rod designe to keep it in place, so it was flopping all over. TO FIX: UN PLUG MACHINE. UNSCREW the two screws in front and lift off front panel. Use a NUTDRIVER to unscrew the metal plate protecting the wires and then the front plate holding the blower wheel in place. USE E-CLIP WRENCH to undo the e-clip. USE NEEDLENOSED PLIERS to take off the retaining ring. TAKE OUT the wheel. CLEAN the entire area, wipe everything down and get rid of lint. REPLACE WITH NEW WHEEL, PUT ON NEW RETAINING CLIP and E-RING. Then put everything back together in REVERSE. Dryer runs more smoothly, shorter dry time, clothes are fluffier and it was simple, simple. FOR all the parts including this one I paid approx $50.00 total. That is still less than the fee for the repair man to come to your house just to LOOK for a problem!!!!! Also, I initially got parts from another store in town befor I discovered this site...they ended up having to order parts anyway and it was more expensive, this is the site to use!!!
First removed the front of the dryer by removing two screws and tipping the front off. Took off the the front that holds the dryer drum by removing four bolts/screws. One screw to take of circuit protector plate, then about 8 little screws to remove the front of the blower house. Used a screwdriver and pliers to twist off the retaining ring and then swapped out the new blower fan for the old, broken one. Reverse to put it all back together. Trickiest was getting the retaining ring back on without the specialized tool they make for the job, but got it on with the pliers and screwdriver.$25 bucks in parts and a half and hour sure beat $60 for them to tell me what is wrong (I already know) and then the mark up on parts and another $60 for the repair. Likely saved >$125.
I followed the other descriptions as to parts removal. But on my model I could not remove the lint filter housing by removing the four screws inside the drum. One screw wasn't visible nor accessible since it faced inside the dryer body. In order to remove it I had to take off the two side brackets that held the drum in place. Removing the side brackets removed the housing (I didn't actually need to remove the screws inside the drum) and enabled me to complete the installation. The drum did come loose slightly but was easily aligned when I put everything back together. Also the blower wheel, besides the wheel clamp, is held on with a special clip on the spindle that I had to pry off with a screwdriver and pliers. The whole process was a bit more complicated but not that difficult.
Use philips head screwdriver to remove 2 front lower screws. Pull out on bottom of front and turn it aound and to the left (to keep from having disconnect wires). Using sockets, remove lint filter cover (one screw was hard to get to; may need to take some other screws loose to get to it).Remove the small heat shield at the bottom, then remove the cover of the blower fan assembly.Use either small snap-ring pliers or a scre driver to remove snap ring, and use pliers to remove the clamp in the wheel.Re-assemble.
My husband took the lower right panel in the back of the dryer off to check to see if the barings in the motor were worn out making the loud noise. the shaft of the motor spun without a loud noise as he turned it by hand but from the front of the dryer could hear a rattle of something loose. He slid his hand into the exhaust vent from the back and reached all the way through to the front where he could feel that the fan(blower wheel) was loose and turning free from the motor shaft (which revealed itself to be the source of the loud noise) got the part number and ordered the part from you and using the snap ring pliers to remove the old blower wheel put the new one on and now our dryer runs great and quiet. one web site that was helpful was fixitnow.com thanks for all your help
