Lint has been bypassing the lint filter and building up in the fan (and duct)
I noticed that drying time was increasing. I took the covers off the dryer to reach the fan and discovered that the squirrel cage fan buckets were packed with lint, and therefore not moving the air as intended. This was because the original lint filter caught most of the lint, but some bypassed the lint filter and then built up in the fan wheel buckets. The lint bypassed the lint filter because there was no felt gasket on the original filter as far as I can tell. I replaced the lint filter...and the replacement filter includes the felt seal (and fits tightly in the slide). The original lint filter has a provision for the felt seal, but I don't recall ever seeing it (and I did not see remnants of it in the fan or duct). As a matter of fact, I was always suspicious of how loosely the lint filter fit in the slide. The felt seal is not available as a replacement part from Maytag. That said, felt material 3/16"x1/2"x10ft is available from McMaster-Carr...and it fits nicely in the original lint filter.

Dryer stopped heating
We have a very early model of the He3. We had to follow directions for the He2 model to replace the heater element and thermostat. Access is easy through the front panel, but removing and replacing the element required some force and maneuvering in a small area.

We replaced both the element and the thermostat since we had the entire part disconnected and removed. So far working great!

The felt on my lint filter came off so I looked up the replacement part and it looks like it doesn’t have felt on it anymore (I’m assuming it was redesigned?) with that said do I need to get a new filter to replace my current one or can I keep using it since the new one wouldn’t have felt anyways!
PartSelect logo
Hi Sean, using the lint filter you already have should be fine since the redesigned lint filter no longer has felt on it. If you would still like to replace it, you can order part number WP37001142. Please let us know if you have any further questions!

Using your site I found this part for my dryer but it looks so much different then the one I’m replacing. Has there been redesigned by the manu or something
PartSelect logo
Hi Ellen, yes, this lint filter should fit your model. It does look different than the original because it was recently redesigned by the manufacturer. Best of luck with this repair!

pulled my lint filter out of my dryer and it started falling off the screen and I want to fix it or replace it how do I fix it
PartSelect logo
Hello Barbara, if you would like to glue the felt back onto the lint screen, make sure to use a high-temperature adhesive. If that does not work, you can replace the lint screen assembly here W10120998.

Felt around the lint filter is half off. I will try to reglue it. If it does not work, what problems will it cause if i take that half off or remove the entire thing. The new filters do not have them on the new dryers.
For model number WED9050XW0
PartSelect logo
Hello Gary, Thank you for your inquiry. It prevents air from leaking around the filter housing. If your seal is broken, damaged, or overused, it can allow lint to bypass the lint filter. The seal is sold separately, part WP697813. Hope this helps!

The description of the lint filter (part #: Ps1491676) says it's 12 1/2 inches wide and 10 1/2 inches deep. The one i have that came with the dryer is 12 inches wide at its widest point and 10 3/8 inches deep at its deepest point, excluding the protrusion of the handle. Will this part fit my dryer?Also, i'm replacing this filter because the felt is quite old and appears to be letting lint escape around the edges. i understand that the replacement filter does not have the felt surrounding. would this replacement filter be the appropriate part to fix my problem?
For model number 110.66942501
PartSelect logo
Hi Janice, thank you for your question. This filter is the one that your manufacturer lists as the correct part for your model. So it would be the only filter available for your model and should work without any issues. That is correct, the filter no longer has the felt seal around it. The lint filter should stop most of the lint from getting through. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

I am looking to replace my vent filter but it doesn’t look the same as this one. Also it’s in great shape. Is it ok to use this one as the only thing wrong is the felt at the bottom is torn a little. And these new ones do not look to have felt on them? Thoughts?
For model number WED9400SW2
PartSelect logo
Hi Missi, Thank you for the question. You can operate the dryer without the felt strip. The felt seal has been eliminated from the newly redesigned replacement filter. This filter may look different but will still work on your appliance. Hope this helps!

My vent cleaner is only collecting on one side the rest is going into my dyers housing.
For model number WED9550WW2
PartSelect logo
Hi Linda, thank you for your question. You may want to then check that your lint filter is in working order. You may also want to check that all of your ducts inside of your appliance and leading to the exhaust on the outside of your home are not clogged with lint. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.
