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.
Thank God for YouTube. I watched a video that helped me identify the problem, then I watched another video of the part being replaced. **Unplug the appliance before you start. 220 volts is not a joke. Maytag dryers have changed very little in the past 40 years. I have a stackable washer/dryer pair with the dryer on top. I had to remove the front cover from the dryer, then remove the bulkhead that acts as a guide for the dryer drum. Next I had to remove the cover that runs from the lint-trap down to the blower motor. The problem was the shaft of the dryer motor is a D shape and the plastic squirell-cage fan (Blower Wheel) had worn to a full circle. So the squirrel-cage was just wobbleing around on the motor shaft. There were two spring clips to remove, then the blower wheel just pulled out. I put the new one on, replaced the clips, buttoned it all back up and plugged it back in. The result is a whisper quiet dryer. The hardest part of the whole process was removing the spring clips while trying to hold the drum in position (I was working alone).

I follow the video how to change the blower wheel
Replaced fan on blower/drive motor. Fan became out of round and worn on shaft. Scotch tape was used to hold drive belt on tumbler. Also replaced belt drive wheel on opposite end of drive motor shaft.
replaced tne blower wheel using instructions from Parts Select web site.Received the parts second day after I ordered them from Parts Select. Very pleased with results. Thanks for the help.
Our Maytag dryer was making a lot of noise..a rumbling that would continue for a few seconds after dryer would stop. Thanks to this web site, I determined it was the blower wheel. The plastic wheel "rounds out" over time, and slips on the shaft. Replacement was very easy...just keep track off all the screws and bolts you take off to access blower wheel...and make sure none of the wires from the front panel come undone. I saved myself a ton of money doing it myself...parts were abount 25$.
We also put a new belt and idler wheel on the machine, When you ave a soon who is a plumber, we had no problems, and thank you for prompt deliver of the parts..
took the dryer apart, found the problem, and ordered the part. very quick shipping, we had it the next day. great!
Removed the 2 bottom screws under the front cover. Lift up and you could set it aside. Remove all the blower screws using a nut driver. Here you, you will see the blower and remove the lock ring using a ring pliers and the clip using a needle nose pliers. Remove the old blower and install the new one, make sure the flat side of the shaft matches with the blower. Put back in reverse order all you remove..
I just followed the video to the letter or recording
I am a builder and a fixer, but have never fooled around with washers and dryers. They just seemed too big and complicated and specialized. But for some reason this time I went to a Maytag parts site, ended up with Parts Select, and happened across the question of what was my problem. The loud noise answer showed most likely causes of noise, so I ordered the two parts with the the best chance to be the culprit. Then I found the video with the nice guy doing the job slowly and clearly, and it looked like a snap. It was sort of like the old Volkswagon Bug "Repairs for Idiots Book" or whatever it was called: "First, open the hood. Second, prop up the hood with a stick so it won't fall down on you. Third . . . ." Received the parts in the mail, pretty reasonable, looked at the video a second time, and opened 'er up. I was amazed at all the space in there, and how simple everything was. Wiggled and spun the rollers, then spun the fan and there it was - the grinding noise. So I replaced the fan, put it back together and the problem was solved. Later I had to put in a new belt too, so I recommend doing that any time you take out a major part in an old dryer. My old belt was sorta cracked and I should have replaced it along with the fan but I thought it would keep on working. Stupid me. But the whole program was just right for someone with an hour or two who wants to save that $150 repair bill from an appliance repair guy who comes to your home and does the exact same thing you can do yourself. Just LOVE the probability percentage list of which part is bad, and the videos on how to do the work. I'll use this system again, if needed. George
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!)
I replaced the drum rollers and guide pads, and the blower. Now everything works like new.
I thought the noise was coming from the rear belt / pulley system, but found it was from the front blower wheel.First phase: disassemble to figure out problem -- found the front glides were worn and tumbler belt was old & cracked and noise was from blower wheel. Vacuumed out tons of lint. Ordered parts. Had to order rivet tool & ring pliers (tools cost $25 including shipping). One hour.Final phase: Disassemble & drill out glide rivets -- attach with new rivets (easy). Replaced blower wheel & belt (easy). One hour.Runs great -- no noise. Cleaning helped drying ability. Videos were key. ALWAYS REMEMBER TO UNPLUG! I didn't & nearly welded my fingers to the chassis.
Parts replacement was easy after I watched your video on how to do repairs. The biggest issue no covered on the video was that a ring expander is required, (which I had to purchase), if removing any of the rollers or idlers.. Also the retaining rings need to be replaced if the machine is older because they bend easily.. Another issue to mention is that lot of lint, and other junk should be vacuumed inside the drier and vents.. Total repair cost was less than $100 so should be good for many years. Saved over half buying parts from you vs buying parts locally over the counter…
