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.

CustomerMichael from Kirkland WA

The old belt was shredded and off the motor pulley

Removed the front two bottom screws of the front panel and rotated the panel upwards to remove; removed the top (not really necessary but much easier to access and clean) and leaned the top over on a table (keeping the wiring in place). Took off the front piece that holds the dryer tub, removed the dryer tub and cleaned all inside (it was filthy after 27 years).

To reinstall, put the belt on the dryer tub, placed the tub in position, put the belt on using the access panel in the back, and then installed the front part that holds the tub in place (4 screws, two on each side). Put the top back on (2 bolts) and then replaced the front panel.

The dryer still has a slight squeak so may be back for more parts. Should I have replaced the 2 rollers that hold the back of the dryer tub? They seemed okay, but we'll see.

Replacing any part will be easier the second time!

Bad belt, broke swittch taking door off

Basically, your website helped us to make the repair. When I selected the belt, the tips from other customers made it very easy both to take the machine apart and put back together. Putting the belt on was much easier than either my wife or I thought it would be. I have told all my friends about your website. I think it is great.

Thank you.

Loud noise when turning on dryer and while running

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

Noisy operation

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.

Dryer belt broke

Dryer didn't come with good instructions. Online to get instructions I found Parts Select. We have an appliance parts store 30 miles away who had the belt but it was $18 more plus the gasoline cost for the 60 mile round trip. We ordered the belt from Parts Select and received it the next day by Fed Ex. I received an instruction page with the belt that was exact in every detail to the installation process. I now have Parts Select in my browser for quick access and with use them every time I have an appliance problem.

CustomerStanley from Chattanooga TN

Loud squeak while running, mostly at the beginning of run.

Unplug dryer, many exposed wires inside. Replace rollers, remember to order two, since there is one on each side for drum support. Use small amount of a good long term oil to help give the drum rollers added friction release. The belt was replaced since it was worn and the added cost is minimal compared to the repair. The shafts were actually in good shape, but since I ordered one I did install it. Be sure to clean up the shafts if left unreplaced since they will be dirty from priro use. The inside of dryer has various sharp edges so I recommend wearing protective gloves to prevent a nasty surface cut.

Belt had broken and drum wouldn't rotate.

Followed the instructions and printed out the diagram of belt rotation from your website. This was my first attempt at repairing a dryer-should take less time with future repairs. The inside of dryer need cleaning as it is over 20 years old.
