This comes with a metallic hub clamp to hold it firmly in place.
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.
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

I happened to come across a repair story posted by Wayne From Minneapolis MN about how he reinstalled the tumbler, plugged the dryer in, and started it up but forgot the belt and realized that it was the blower wheel that was loose on the shaft. As soon as I read that, I said, "Yes! that's it!" So I ordered the blower wheel and a belt. I decided to replace the belt since I saw it was slightly frayed. After all, the dryer is almost 20 years old!First, switched off the power to the dryer or disconnect it from the outlet. Took the front panel off by removing the two screws near the bottom of the dryer. Pulled the bottom of the panel out and the two clips on the top just disengaged easily. Be careful, there are two wires connected to this panel. Just rotated it to the left and let it rest vertically. If need be, the two wires can be removed easily. Next, I removed the four screws to take out the front tumbler and the tumbler. Set them aside. Then I removed the belt. You might want to pay attention as to how the belt goes around the motor pulley and the idler pulley before removing the belt.After nearly 20 years, I'm surprised that it wasn't full of lint and dust. Gave it a good vacuuming and clean up.Next, I removed the blower cover, the retaining ring, the hub clip, and the blower wheel. Installed the new blower wheel, hub clip, and here's the challenging task without the proper tool - putting the retaining ring back on the shaft! It took me about 5 minutes to put it back on the shaft with a small flat-head screw driver and an awl. Reinstalled the blower cover. Next, I put the new belt over the pulleys and loosely hung the belt on the back tumbler to hold it up. Then I put the tumbler back in and worked the belt over the tumbler. I let the belt sat in the groove of the tumbler first and then when the tumbler was in position, I worked the belt over the two pulleys in to the proper position. Then I moved the belt to strap over the top of the tumbler. At this point, I just rolled the tumbler with my hand when part of the belt was out of the groove and on top of the tumbler. The motion took care of getting the rest of the belt out of the groove and on top of the tumbler as it should be located. Reinstalled the front tumbler and then the front panel.Powered it back up and started the dryer and viola! the rumbling noise was not to be heard. Just like it used to sound - a low humming noise. Thanks Partselect.com for the helpful repair stories and the speed in getting the parts to me.

Removed old assy, replaced with new.Fantastic company - super fast delivery!!!!
Took front off dryer and cover off blower wheel and replaced.
I followed the instructions on the site from another customer for my model...they were perfect and easy to follow. I was surprised at how easy it was to disassemble the dryer and replace the blower wheel. Like other customers, I took the time to completely clean out the dryer lint, oil all moving parts and replaced the tumbler belt just because I knew it had never been replaced. The dryer purrs like a kitten now and I'm so thankful for the great information provided on your website ref the disassembly and easy to follow instructions on the belt packaging.The part arrived within 5 days, no hassle, no delay. I will definitely use your company for my next appliance repair.Thanks
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.
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 removed two screws holding the front panel. Then, the front dryer bearing was removed by taking out four screws. With the blower wheel exposed, I removed the snap ring and wheel clamp and removed the wheel. The new wheel was an exact replacement and was easily installed.
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.
