Dryer would not heat.

I thought first it was the heating element. Because I am 50 yrs. old and have fixed dryers before. And that was always the culprit. But, now there are safety features that will prevent heating. With PS videos I was able to diagnose my problem with a continuity test. After checking all. I found it was one part to the thermal cut-off kit (which contains 2 parts/switches). Very easy repair. I ordered my parts on a Thursday just before midnight. My parts were at my door By Saturday afternoon. Awesome website. Awesome service. The help videos PS offers will walk you through any problem. I will use them for every repair in the future. Thank You

Followed general instructions from your you-tube video. It was much easier than expected. We didn't know if it was belt or rollers, turned out to be roller, but since we bought both we replaced both.

squeaky dryer and already replaced everything else

I watched several Youtube videos for this repair. The best showed a man taking you through every part of replacing the rear felt seal. I used binder clips from my home office and he used clothes pins to keep the seal in place while gluing it and letting it set. To completely finish this repair, it takes over 24 hours to get your dryer ready for drying again. Steps to repair: you need to get to the dryer drum, watch a video on how to do this to include taking off belt, idler pulley. Remove Drum from the dryer. take off all the old felt seal. take out new felt seal and place around the drum, it will be pretty tight. secure the seal by using clothes pins or binder clips all the way around the drum. this will help you keep the seal on the drum and guide you as you use the glue to bind the seal to the drum. Using the adhesive provided with the felt seal, going around the drum, glue down the seal and re-clip it so the glue gets a good grip. let dry of at least 1 hour. Cannot use the dryer for another 24 hours to make sure the glue dries completely and is ready for the heat. I had already replaced the 2 rollers, 2 shafts, belt, idler pulley and start switch and dryer still squeaked. Then I replaced the rear felt seal. NOW I am replacing the bulkhead because it is worn flat in some places and is warped. I am waiting on the part.

I researched the issue, found a video and ordered the belt, which came in 2 days. It was inexpensive, and I had my dryer back and running in less than 3 days. I did get my son to help me as it might not be that easy with just 1 person (to hold the drum in place while putting the front back on). Great service and great information on how to do the repair.

Thank you so much for having the details and a video made thing go so well! Sincerely Dawn

broken belt

I loved the demo video on how to do the repair-it was very helpful. My dryer was different than the one on the video, and I had to make adjustments ( I had self tightening screws on the top and bottom of the front panel and then I stripped the screws)I did this by myself and I had to prop up the drum AND the front panel with items in laundry room.) That's why it took me longer than demo (also had to run to hardware store to get screws). Felt great to accomplish this by myself. Thanks!

I know now that I did not have to get in the back of the machine. Only lift top remove two screws for the front and lift off.The most diffcult was determing how the idler and belt went in but if you hold it in position it becomes to you. Thanks for all your help you run a good ship.

I unplugged the dryer then loosened the screws on the top and inside front, took the front off, I didn't need to unplugged the socket wiring attached to the door. Removed the drum (it came right off) wrapped the new belt around the drum, fed the belt through the tension flange and looped it over the pulley. Then rotated the drum a few times by hand to line everything up then put everything back together. It works fine now.

Went on the website to diagnose the problem and ordered the two most likely components for the recommended "fix". Watched the video that was associated with the tracking information that was emailed to me when the parts shipped. Walks you right through the entire process. My daughters could do this. I call myself the "Maytag Repairman" these days and the wife was quite impressed!!! Of course I didn't clue her in to all the help I received from you guys...made her think I was a GENIUS!!! ;)

Before placing your order remove the motor. At the rear of the motor is a plastic nut which is how the fan is attached. Mine was stuck and needed to be removed with a cutoff wheel from the back side of the dryer. This delayed the project several more days as I had already received the motor before figuring out the fan was stuck.

Watched the repair video on part-select. Pulled the top of the dryer up after removing the lint trap screws.removed screws at top, inside both sides and then lifted front off. Slipped belt over drum and ran through tensioner and around motor shaft. Put dryer back together in reverse order. Simple.

First of all, your operator was patient and courtious and extremely knowlegable. They knew right away what part was required. I watched a video on youtube describing the job. When the part arrived, on time, I just did what the video told me to do and in under 30 minutes the jobwas done and the dryer works perfectly. I'll be back for sure
