Very Loud Squeaking / Clothing having rips
The support rollers were fried, literally. I'm honestly surprised they held on. Let's just say that the "roller" part wasn't even attached to the support wheel... That bad. Because there wasn't much support there is a small tear in the metal on the back drum. The felt seal for the drum had basically been worn down to pieces. So I order two drum support rollers, two roller shafts, a new drum felt seal, and a new rib belt.

After the repair, no more squeaking, literally a huge difference, and because of there's plenty of support now for the drum, there isn't any clothes being torn. If it weren't for the videos and the parts, we would of spent hundreds of dollars on a new dryer. Instead we spent just over $100 and now our dryer is quiet and operating better than when we got it.

These were changed proactively while I had the dryer apart to replace the motor.
I removed the control panel and front panel, then the brace holding in the drum. Then the drum came out easily.

Replacing the rollers is easy, use circlip pliers to remove the old circlips, replace the rollers, and reinstall the circlips.

After removing the idler pulley by removing one bolt and the spring, I replaced the idler roller, again with the circlip pliers. Then the idler arm bolts back to the motor mount, and the spring is replaced.

Reinstalling is easy - place the drum, have someone support it while you install the drum brace, then replace the front panel, then the control panel.

Dryer was noisy and seemed to be loosing heat
Did an internet search for parts for my older Maytag dryer. Landed on PartSelect and man I am glad I did! Entered my model number and boom! Complete schematics on the dryer, with part numbers. Also have diagnostic questions to point you in the right direction. Figured out what parts I needed, ordered via phone. Fantastic customer service. PartSelect also has excellent installation videos you can watch to assist. Took me a little over an hour to open up the dryer, replace the drum rollers, drum belt, idler roller and both front and rear felt seals. Buttoned dryer back up, hit the run switch and it purs like brand new. I cannot recommend PartSelect to highly. Great company, great customer service, quick shipping.

Noisy
This is the dryer of a 28 year old Maytag laundry pair. I had replaced the glide kit 8-10 years before. Did them again because they were worn in half again but this time I added the 2 roller kits and the belt, really just guessing. I was surprised how full of dust and lint the inside was, especially the blower fan blades. I ordered the screw because the belt idler pulley assembly was very wobbly and I hoped that was the screw anchoring it to the motor housing was the problem but it wasn't. Turns out the threaded hole in the housing was stripped, due I guess to years of vibration. It was too tight to get a tap and dye in there so I drilled the hole out and replaced the screw with a bolt and nut and lock washer. Before drilling it out I tried a few strands of wire and JB Weld, like the trick with stripped wood holes where you break off toothpicks in the hole and fill with wood glue. But that stripped out too so I drilled and used the bolt. Turned out I didn't need that $7 screw. Probably should have known comparing it to the old one which looked the same after I cleaned it. Anyway, it sounds fine again.

Dryer emitted a squeaky noise every time it started
We inherited this dryer three years ago upon purchasing our current house. At that time I found this website to purchase and install a couple of the baffles that were missing. This time, I checked the troubleshooting for my current problem and ordered all of the parts I felt I needed to resolve the problem. Once I received the parts, I followed the great how-to videos by Steve to disassemble the front of the dryer and remove the drum. I could not get to the repairs right away since the interior of the dryer was quite dirty and I took a lot of time to clean it out. Once I got to removing and replacing the drum rollers, idler pulley, rear drum felt shaft, and drum belt, everything went smoothly and was just as easy as Steve described in the videos. If I didn't have such a dirty machine interior, removing the old parts and installing the new parts would have taken less than an hour. I had to hold off on installing the front glide kit and front drum felt seal since I forgot to order two of each (I'll install these at a later date. I proceeded to putting everything back together and testing the dryer. The dryer now runs quietly and works great.

Loud squealing noise
Disassembled dryer and replaced drum support roller and shaft. That took care of the noise but I still replaced the belt and idler pulley while I had it apart.

Dryer make scraping sound while running.
Followed the directions on the video. I recommend changing both tumbler wheels and idler pulley when you have unit apart as well as the drive belt. When I opened the dryer cabinet I immediately saw what my scraping noise was being caused by. A screw holding a baffle in the dryer tub had backed out and was scraping the cabinet wall on each rotated pass. Like I said, when you have the cabinet apart you might as well change parts that are going to fail. The repair was very easy and now I have many more years of service with my dryer. Had I opened the dryer before to see what parts I needed I would have seen the loose screw.

Squeeky dryer
Okay, first of all, just let me say, if I can do this, ANYONE can. I am not very handy when it comes to things like this. I watched online videos and they will walk you through everything. I am so pleased with the results. Quiet as can be now. Before, we would have to shut the door when it was on because the scretching was so loud! The parts on this site were far more affordable than at my local repair store and they all came right to my doorstep. Overall it took me about 45 minutes and three beers :) Good luck!

Noisy & Drum stop working
Replaced damaged parts and recommended parts normally causing the problem. Dryer is working again like new. I expended $112 rather than $600 for a new equipment. Good deal!

My wife told me today that my dryer is making a really loud noise that is akin to nails on a chalkboard. I know from previous experience that it could be the belt or the rollers but where would you recommend I focus my attention. It sounds like the dryer drum is struggling to spin, but it is still spinning.
PartSelect logo
Hi Louis, we recommend checking the rollers for the problem you are experiencing. Rollers are a commonly replaced part because they do wear down over time. The most common side effect of worn rollers are loud screeching noises. If not the rollers, the next step would be to check the blower wheel to make sure it is not broken. I hope this helps!

I turned on my dryer and it would not rotate, but when I took the clothes out it started spinning. Your site says I need to replace the belt, which I’ve purchased but what else would you recommend I look at as Id rather get it all at once!
PartSelect logo
Hi Freddie, if you are already replacing the drum belt we recommend checking the condition of your idler pulley and your rollers. These three parts together are common wear replacement parts, and could all cause a dryer to not spin properly. Good luck with your repair!

My dryer is making a wining noise and I don’t know what the cause could be. I just replaced the belt and it is turning. TYIA
PartSelect logo
Hello Alicia, great question. I would first recommend checking your rollers for visible damage or excess wear. If the sound is not coming from faulty rollers I would also suggest checking the blower wheel for congestion such as dryer sheets and large pieces of lint. Thanks again for your great question!

I just purchased this belt because at first it said this was a genuine Maytag part. Later it said it fits other brands. I paid more because I wanted the Maytag belt. If this is not a Maytag belt I think I just made a mistake. I don’t want a “fits a Maytag” I wanted an original part. Can you clear this up please? Thanks Suzi
For model number MDG4000BWW

Hello Suzanne, Thank you for the question. All the parts we sell are OEM parts. Maytag is owned by Whirlpool so it shows other brands that is under Whirlpool. This is still the original replacement Maytag Belt. We hope this helps!
