Living overseas and caring for a dinosaur dryer

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.

Loud noise

The actual promlem was the blower fan blade I also replaced the belt and other moving parts just because ! The only thing needed to do from the back is remove the 4 screws holding a metal plate on the lower right to gain access to the belt tensioner. EVERYTHING else is done from the front Don't learn the hard way (I did). Part Select was wonderful.

Replace dryer belt and rollers

Followed the directions which were included with the parts - this was a washer dryer combo and found it easier to remove the tension spring on the the idler roller assembly to set the belt in place and then re attach the spring to the frame body.

Loud noise

watch the video. drum roller failed(noise) but looking at the rest of the dryer I desided to replace belt(cracking) and front guides(worn through in places) also discovered it wasn't mice making nests in dryer it was stuff coming through where light protective lense should have been. The video is better instruction than I could give. Thanks.

Loud rumbling noise

1st watched videos on making repairs on installing drum support roller kit,front glide kit and replacing tumbler belt.These repairs took approx 30 minutes but, didn't stop the rumbling. Went to a blog site that stated if these repairs didn't stop the noise I should take the tumbler belt off and see if the noise is coming from the motor area it was and further investigation revealed it was the plastic blower wheel,the flat spot on the blower shaft had worn out causing the blower wheel to rumble and vibrate. This repair took 15 minutes after watching the video on blower wheel repair. Runs better then new.

When the dryer grumbles check the blower wheel too.

If your dryer is making a rumbling noise, change the blower wheel. It's plastic and the heating and cooling cycles causes the keyway in the plastic to give out and the wheel just spins causing the noise and the slower dry time. The other parts I replaced see below. Like many other repairs, remove screws below dryer door. Mark all wires and locations for re-assembly. Next remove front tumbler/lint screen assembly (4 sheet metal screws 2/L 2/R. Work belt off back of tumbler and remove. Use flathead screw driver to release tabs that hold felts on both front and back tumble supports. Make sure you know rotation of tumbler and install new felts so the overlap goes in direction of spin. Use a drum stick or 3/8 ratchet extension, something dull and flat to press tabs back down on felts. A screwdriver could slip off and tear cloth. Next drill out heads of the rivets on the glides and remove teflon glide and cork backer. Make sure all rivet material is removed front and back. Install new cork and glide. Rivet one side back in, then the other. Repeat on 2nd glide. Re-assemble dryer. Super smooth, super quiet.

CustomerMichael from Brighton MI

Dryer had been making a loud squealing noise then the drum stopped turning.

I wasn't sure how to access the belt inside so I went online looking for a diagram. I came accross the PartSelect website and found the awesome video instructions on how to disassemble, change each part and reassemble everything. I discovered I had a broken belt and the drum rollers were bad. I ordered the parts from PartSelect on a Wednesday and they arrived on that Friday. I started the repair on Saturday morning and following the video repair instructions a couple hours later my dryer was back in business for a very reasonable dollar amount. Thanks to PartSelect for making my repair so much easier!!

CustomerJeffrey from Gloucester VA

Broken belt

Removed the front of the dryer and the vent assembly that held the drum in place. Removed the drum and cleaned the interior of the dryer with vaccum cleaner. I then oile the drum rollers which were starting to get dry and squeeky. Slipped new belt over drum and re-installed the drum vent assembly and then the fron of the dryer. Opened the rear access of the dryer and completed the installation oc the belt over the motor drive pully and idler wheel. Returned dryer to working location and tested - all was well. Note - the installation instruction that came with the belt are not clear on having to open the rear access panel. The directions made it sound like you can actually do everything from the front side - not likely unless you have 4 foot arms the size of broom sticks! Once I open the rear and could actually see the motor and idler pulley it was easy to finish.

CustomerNorah from Philadelphia PA

Belt needed to be replaced

Previous entries about how to change the belt were very helpful. It's true; the instructions included with the replacement belt are very helpful and accurate. I decided to pull the tumbler out in order to be able to see the motor and pulley. I then read the directions a number of times so that I was sure I understood how to loop the belt around the motor, pulley and tumbler; knowing that I would need to put the tumbler back in and then "work blind" by feeling the loop of the belt and work it around the motor and pulley. To prepare for this, I taught myself how to loop the belt first by looking at the motor/pulley and referring to the instructions. Then, I tried it a number of times with my eyes closed, in anticipation of not being able to see what I was doing once the tumbler was back in place. When I was sure I could loop the belt with my eyes closed, I replaced the tumbler, slid the belt over the tumbler as instructed and reached back under the lower-left portion of the dryer to loop the belt around the motor and/pulley. I had it within a couple of tries. Note, it was imperative to pull up on the pulley to its maximum with my right hand in order to be able to complete the loop around the pulley with my left hand. Once I was sure I had the belt in place, I reassembled the front of the dryer and then took off the back access panel to spot-check the placement of the belt around the motor and pulley. I'd done it correctly. Additional note: while I had the tumbler out, I sprayed wd40 on the rotors since they have been sounding kind of "grindy". I wiped excess from the rubber surface of the rollers and surrounding areas. It worked like a charm and now the dryer is quieter than it has been since I inherited with the house I bought -4 years ago.

CustomerMarcella from Lake in the Hills IL

Broken tumbler belt

We had to take the tumbler out because we needed to see where the pulleys were. The directions for threadiing the belt around the idler pulley and motor pulley weren't clear. It took us quite a while to figure out that the belt had to be threaded back into the left side of the motor pulley after it was guided around the idler pulley. Once we figured that out, the directions made sense.

Broken belt

Removed the screws that hold the front panel, removed the two screws tha hold the top lid. Then removed the four front screws that hold the tub in place. Placed the belt around the tub 1.5 inches from the back screws on the tub where dark tracks from the old belt was showing. After that I secured the tub in place by mounting the front panel that holds the tub in place with the four screws. Then opened a small rear panel that has four screws and placed the belt around the motor as shown on the diagram where the belt came in. It was easier doing it from the rear where I could see the motor.

CustomerTeong from Cordova TN

Loud rumbling noise at the start of dryer and noise continues when dryer was running

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.
