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
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.
Removed front cover, Removed blower housing cover, Removed clamp holding fan to shaft. removed cir-clip from motor shaft,Replaced blower fan and reversed order of dissemble.
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).
remov door remove fan install new fan
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
