    Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
    Dryer was making horrible noise,
    First I removed the 2 screws behind the door just below the slot for the lint trap(t-15 torx screws). I then popped the top of the dryer off using a flat tipped screw driver and using a 8mm. socket and extension I removed the 2 sheet metal screws from inside of the top corners of the front panel which attach it to the side panels. After that I could lean the front panel away from the unit and unplug the door switch being careful to mark the wires so I wouldn't have to take it apart again in the instance that I hooked them up wrong. I then leaned the front panel out a little more and lifted it off of the pins that lock the bottom of the front panel in. After that, I removed the sheet metal screws(8 mm.) that secure the fan housing cover and removed the old fan which was easy as it had spun the center out of itself and basically fell off, this is what was making all the racket. I removed the c-clip which rides in the groove at the end of the shaft with a flat tip and a pair of pliers, slid the new fan blade over the shaft, gave it a few light taps with the end of a hammer handle to seat it properly and installed the tension clamp with some pliers and popped the c-clip back on. I reversed the tear down procedures and reassembled the drier. Thanks to a little no-how, mechanical inclination, and the right parts, I was able to restore my drier to like new, virtually silent operation for about $40 as opposed to buying a new unit or paying a repairman $80 to $100 per hour plus parts to do the job. PartSelect.com made specifying and ordering the correct parts the first time a breeze and their prices are a bargain to boot.

    Dryer had been noisy, then stopped heating.
    Opened dryer and removed drum. Replaced old blower wheel with new wheel, clamp and clipwhich was worn and was responsible for the noisy operation. Plugged in new ignition coils then replaced drum. Dryer works great now.

    Sounded like rocks tubling in dryer and kept getting louder
    Lifted the top, then removed two screws holding on front panel, then removed cover holding this part in place, then used retaing ring plyers to remove the ring, then plyers to remove wheel clamp, took off the blower wheel. After that did everything in reverse to put it back together. And now the dryer is quite.

    Dryer was too hot. Not enough air flow. Worn wheel hub.
    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.

    Blower wheel was wobbly about the shaft, producing a lot of vibration and noise.
    Tools required: Stubby socket wrench, 5/16" socket, 1/2" socket, 1/4" socket, #3 Phillips screwdriver, external circlip pliers, straight slip joint pliers. A decently strong electric screwdriver is highly recommended - Milwaukee 2401-20 M12 cordless 1/4" Hex Screwdriver, for example.

    Unplug the dryer. Turn off the gas supply.

    Remove the screws holding the door hinges to the dryer.

    Remove the door and hinges from the dryer by pulling the door and hinges up, then out.

    Remove the two plastic thingies (door stops), opposite of where the hinges were, from the front panel of the dryer. Each plastic piece is held in place by two screws.

    Grasp the front panel by its top edge, pull it toward you, then lift the panel up and off the clips at the bottom.

    There are a couple metal brackets holding the top of the dryer down to the front shroud (the doorway) and frame, one on either side. Each bracket is held in place by two screws. Remove the screws, remove the brackets, then rock the top panel up and back, like the hood of a car.

    Remove the screws holding the shroud to the frame. Look carefully. There are two screws that look like they hold the shroud to the frame, but actually do not. Don't remove these screws yet.

    Remove the screws holding the plastic duct / lint screen slot to the shroud. These are very long.

    Disconnect the wires from the door switch.

    Remove the shroud.

    Remember the two screws I referenced previously, stating they shouldn't yet be removed? Now's the time to remove them. Do so, then set the panel aside, being careful not to damage any wires. Don't lose the rubber gasket sitting around the circular portion of the duct.

    There's a metal cover over the blower wheel. This cover is held in place by a bunch of screws. Remove them all, then remove the cover.

    Remove the circlip going around the blower shaft, in front of the blower wheel.

    Remove the clamp from around the blower wheel and shaft.

    Pull the blower wheel off the shaft.

    Install the new blower wheel.

    Reinstall the clamp around the blower wheel and shaft.

    Reinstall the circlip.

    Reinstall the metal blower cover.

    Make sure the rear of the drum is resting on the wheels.

    Now things become a little difficult, because you have to fight the drum a little bit. Put the panel containing the moisture sensor, front drum seal, and duct into position. (Be careful not to mess up the drum glides. Make sure the rubber seal at the bottom of the vent is in place, sealing the vent to the blower.) Screw the panel into place with two screws, but don't fully tighten yet.

    There's a felt seal that is supposed to go between the rear lip of the drum and the rear inside wall. The seal is supposed to be held folded, pinched between the lip and the wall, with the edge of the seal being outside the drum. The seal isn't supposed to jut into the inside of the drum. Use your fingers and some other tool to push the rear felt drum seal out of the inside of the drum. If you use a screwdriver, be careful that you don't cut, rip, or otherwise damage the felt seal.

    Do the same with the front felt drum seal.

    Carefully inspect the felt seals. You don't want any portion of the seal somehow working its way back into the inside of the drum. Then verify again that the rubber seal that goes between the blower housing and the vent is in place and properly sealing. Now tighten the screws.

    Connect the wires to the door switch on the shroud, then loosely screw the shroud in place. Screw the shroud to the vent. Once all the screws are in place, tighten all the screws.

    Lower the top of the dryer into position.

    Hook a bracket into one side of the lid, position the bracket over the front shroud, then screw in place.

    Repeat with the other bracket.

    Place the front panel onto the bottom clips. Seat the panel onto the clips all the way, then rock the panel forward into place.

    Install the plastic door stops.

    Insert the door hinges into their slots, push the door down to seat into place, then install the screws that hold the hinges in place.

    Plug the dryer in, turn on the gas, test.

    Clunking noise when first turned on
    I took the access panel off the back, realized that belt was in very bad shape. Ordered a belt when I got that changed I put it back together and it still had a clunking noise. Found out that the blower wheel was rounded off where it goes over the shaft. So to change that I took the two front screws off, then the four hex screws off of the tumbler guide. There were eight or so screws over the blower wheel, took those out and the clamp on the blower wheel then used the snap ring pliers for the snap ring, then changed the wheel. Problem solved. This website is very helpful I would not have attempted to fix my dryer without this website.

    Dryer making noise
    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$.
