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.
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

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…
repair went well, very fast delivery service, ordered Thursday, received Sat. morning.took about 2 hours to do job, up and running by noon on sat.
Put it back the same way you toke it a part
tell everyone to check the blower wheel, it starts out as mid tapping but increases overtime, anything that bangs real loud, its the blower wheel
Removed front panel of the dryer. Removed front cover for the fan assembly. Remove snap ring, clamp holding fan assembly to drive shaft. Re-installed new fan, snap ring and clamp. Cleaned lint from fan area and re-assemblied. Also, replaced drum belt while apart. Very easy job.
I removed the old blower, cleaned all the built up dirt etc and replaced the new blower wheel. Much to my amazement the dryer works like new and no more banging. I appreciate that you had the part we needed and it arrived so quickly. Thanks.
The service from PartsSlect was outstanding.Parts arrived next day and where OEM. I had thedryer cleaned and operational in 1.5 Hr'sKeep up the great service.Thank You
Watched the video on PartSelect website linked to replacing the part. followed the steps shown in the video. The only problem that I had was removing the spring retainer clip. Once I used the correctly sized pliers it came off the first time. Now the clanking noise is gone.
After struggling with increasing excessive noise emanating from the clothes dryer, the source of the problem was traced to the area near the electric motor. After some trial and error, access to the blower wheel area was possible. The blower wheel was found to “free-wheel” on the motor shaft which is obviously incorrect. The keyed area on the blower wheel was completely destroyed allowing the motor shaft to spin freely in the keyway.Removal of the blower wheel was straight forward although “E-ring” plier tool is necessary to remove the retaining ring. Finding the correct Manufacturers part number from on-line appliance sellers was somewhat a task as many types exist which look very similar. Note, look on the inside of the blower wheel and the number can be found stamped on the part.Replacement of the blower wheel was not difficult however keeping the drum in position took some effort. I used spring clamps to keep the drum from slipping out of place.End result is that I do not need to buy a new $$$ dryer much to the dismay of my wife. The unit sounds just like it did when it was first purchased.
I went online to your store and found it easy to identify the correct part and ordered the part which came right away. Thanks to your thorough online tutorial, I was able to easily replace the blower wheel within 30 minutes.
I pulled the plug and leaned the machine up against the wall so I could remove the front panel while sitting on a low stool. (After all when you're 85 you like to be comfortable.) I checked the rollers and the belt after removing the drum and found they looked good. After reading your list of probabilities the blower wheel was mentioned. Checking it I found that it spun freely on its shaft and did not have a flat on the hub to match the flat on the shaft. I ordered a new one from you and you said you would send it Monday. That was a Saturday or Sunday, I forgot, but I was sure surprised when Fed-X delivered it about 10:30 AM Tuesday. I went right to work putting it in in short order and the only problem I had was not knowing how to thread the belt around the pulley and the idler. I poked around a little more on the internet and low and behold I found a perfect picture of the belt mounted and so I managed to go to the back and eureka! I was done. I did lots of vacuuming lint while I had it open and so I'm almost happy I had a problem because now I know I have a clean, lint free machine. My hats off to you guys because you're really doing a nice job, I for one appreciate it. Thanks. Arthur R Schuelke
