Tools needed for repair are a stubby Phillips screw driver, snap ring pliers, and 5/16 nut driver. Be sure to disconnect power from the appliance. Simply unplug the dryer or engage the off-switch. It is recommended to check surrounding parts before ordering, such as the roller shaft and front glide kit. These parts are often purchased together.

Front Glide Kit

Part Number 1804752

The front glide is located at the front of the dryer and the drum rides along it. If you hear a metal-on-metal noise when your dryer is running, your front glide may be worn out and may require replacing. This front glide kit comes with a blue plastic glide, a brown cork pad, and two metallic rivets. Two kits are required per appliance. While you have the front bulk head removed for this repair, you may want to inspect the felt that lines it. If the felt is damaged, it is recommended that you replace it at the same time. You will need a rivet tool for this kit, as well as a stubby Phillips screwdriver, a 5/16 nut driver, and a drill with a 1/8-inch bit.

Question:

When I put clothes in my dryer and turn it on, it is making a loud clunking noise like I have a pair of shoes inside. I’m also getting black marks on the clothes that I don’t think are coming from the washer. What could be the problem(s)?

Dale
Answer:

Hello Dale. We can address both your problems! The thumping sound is most commonly caused by a drum roller that is failing 12001541. A failing drum roller teamed with a worn seal WP33001807 is most likely the reason your clothes are getting marked. If the seal is worn it will cause the clothes to catch on the gap where the seal is located, this could snag them and create black marks. Good luck with this repair!

Question:

From what I read on your site it sounds like I need to replace my supports. The problem is a loud squeaking noise during cycle. Does that sound right? I don’t want to buy 2 of these without knowing for sure. What else would you recommend checking at the same time? My wife wants the noise gone.

Paul
Answer:

Hi Paul, thanks for getting in touch. You did find the right roller for your model, it is 12001541 and you will need two of them for this repair. We also recommend checking your felt seals to make sure they are sturdy and in place, and that your idler pulley is in a good working condition. These are all the most common reasons a dryer would be squeaky during cycle.

Hi Jommy, Thank you for your question. This drum support roller kit includes one drum roller and two bearings/washers. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

When should I replace the drum rollers, what should I be looking for? And will I need lubricant for the shaft? If so what do you recommend?

Kay
Answer:

Hi Kay, great question. If your rollers are already making noise during cycle they should be replaced, if not you should be looking for flat spots as a sign of wear. Also, you will not need to lubricate the shaft, it should all fit together without it. I hope this helps.

Here are a couple of tidbits to add to the excellent instructions already here.

1) I replaced my idler wheel because the bracket was flopping about. However, so did the new one. Apparently it's engineered in, as the idler wheel is self-centering. The play allows for some leeway in placement of the tumbler belt on the tumbler. 2) The ribbed side of the tumbler belt should face away from the tumbler; the flat side rides on the tumbler surface. One of the videos had this backward I thought. 3) I put white lithium grease on the white friction block on the idler wheel bracket as there appeared to have been grease on the old one. I never could get clear direction on whether the drum roller and idle wheel shafts should be lubricated. I opted to leave them dry as they are plain bearing and there is no service interval specified for them. My dryer is 35 years old (go, Maytag!) and never was lubricated by me. As I can't imagine any factory lubrication would last that long I conclude they should be left dry. Just my guess though. YMMV. 4) it should be obvious, but the idler wheel is best serviced through the access panel on the rear of the dryer. 5). If you're replacing the drum rollers, you really need snap ring pliers. Mine were broken so I struggled for a long time removing the nuts on the roller shafts blind. Then I went out afterward and bought the pliers at AutoZone. Go figure. 6) unless you've got the right size stubby Phillips screwdriver, it's a lot easier to get the dryer face panel off if you prop the front of the dryer up on a wood block for clearance. 7) I thought the screw attaching the idler pulley bracket to the frame was rounded off because I kept turning it and nothing happened. In fact, the flopping of the bracket had destroyed some of the screw threads over time so they had no purchase. I used a screwdriver to lever the screw head away from the frame so that the remaining threads could track and that finally got it; 8) Finally, don't buy the two drum roller shaft fiber washers for $22 separately as I did. They are include in the package with the new rollers.

Dryer squeaks very loudly

Watched video then followed directions in the package. Installation wasn't difficult but it would have been easier if I had a set of snap ring pliers (cheep at Harbor Freight). I was surprised by the amount of lint buildup. I feel much safer now that everything is nice and clean. Clean and quiet, worth the time to make the repair.

Noisy dryer

Replaced rear drum rollers and drum belt. Would have been impossible to do unless I had watched the video. [Re-watched video 4 times during repair to make sure of what I was doing.] dryer now works fine. Dryer did throw off a lot of lot dryer felt lint during first post repair use. Customers should let it run one empty cycle after repair.

Part access but easy solution!

Overall, the repair was pretty easy. I'm a 52 year old woman who has never done drier repair. I replaced both front glides, both drum support roller wheels, the idler pulley wheel and the tumbler and motor belt. Including vacuuming out the inside of dryer and washing down the inside and outside of dryer with cleaning wipes, the whole project took me 2 hours. (if done individually, time would have been 20-30 minutes). You must have correct tools, so I did have to purchase two tools that I didn't have. My only suggestion in replacing the idler pulley wheel and the tumbler/motor belt would be to take the small access panel off the back of the dryer for easier access to the parts.

Dyer was making loud banging noise,

I use U Tube watched Video, you have to take apart the dryer, but pretty simple to do. The drum rollers were very easy to install, make sure to have snap ring plyers, installing belt was easy too, make sure to put it back on it the way it came off, mine was ribbed side down on drum. Take a picture if necessary. Getting the belt on the pulley right is the most important part, the rest is just reassembling,

Very loud rumbling noise during and after operation

My Maytag DE710 dryer (very old) had a very loud rumbling noise (loud to the point that I could hear it loud throughout the entire house) constantly during operation and when shutting off. I purchased the parts that I thought would correct the problem (drum roller support kit, roller shaft, tumbler belt.) I installed these parts but unfortunately it did not correct the problem. These parts did show some wear so I didn't mind having to replace them. After further investigation, I noticed that the blower wheel clamp had fallen off into the vent tray. I inspected the blower wheel and found that it had worn the inside passage where the shaft fits through to a round shape (should have a partial flat edge to hold securely on the shaft.) The wheel also had a lot of excess movement in it that allowed it to slide back and forth on the shaft. These 2 issues are what was causing the rumbling noises; although I wouldn't have thought so originally because the wheel is plastic. Before beginning, I was sure it was the drum rollers. Anyway, after replacing the roller wheel with a new one, the problem is 100% eliminated. The dryer runs whisper quiet, a pleasant change from the loud rumbling. The replacement was fairly simple overall after watching the help videos on the website. I expect to get a lot more years out of this dryer, despite it being very old already.

Drum roller was squealing loudly every time the dryer was used. Sounded like a car's power steering belt squeal only 10 times louder.

I watched a video on YouTube for the disassembly of the dryer. The parts replacement took less than 20 minutes; the rest of the time was spent on disassembly and reassembly.

High pitched squeal would wake up the neighborhood.

I've had this dryer since it was new It's over 25 years old. and it started to make a high pitch squealing sound when in use. Decided it's time to repair it. a new one is very expensive. So I ordered the parts from this site. When the parts arrived they where Inspected for fit, function and finish. So I proceeded with doing the repair myself. Short Phillips screw driver to remove the two sheet metal screws at the bottom front panel. tilted the panel from the bottom outward and removed it from the main tumbler cabinet. labeled the door switch wires one was yellow & one white. so I would not reinstall them incorrectly upon assembly. removed the front panel. set it aside. then removed the bulkhead panel 5/16" screw in each corner. removed that and set it aside. and there she was, the tumbler. I pulled the tensioner up to loosen the belt, and removed it. then grabbed the tumbler from the inside top slightly picked it upward and slid it out of the cabinet exposing the two rollers and axles one on each side that it sits on. at that point I noticed the drive belt was frayed and slightly worn. came back in the house and got on line ordered a new one from Parts Select it showed up a day later and a perfect match. the rollers are held in place by snap rings at the end of the axles. squeeze them they come off real easy, and on the back side there's a 14mm hex head nut. box wrench works good here to loosen the nut and remove the axles. the original washers are metallic and worn badly, they where making the high pitched squealing sound when they rotated so they came off and where replaced by the ones in the new roller kit and lubed with graphite not oil or grease. Graphite is dry and does not collect all the dirt and debris. put the new washers, new rollers & snap rings back on the axles grooves on the end, hand spun them and they where ready to roll. took the new belt placed it around the tumbler over the exact witness marks that where there so it would line up and lifted the tumbler back into the cabinet aligned the new belt over the motor pulley and tensioner lining it up exactly on the witness marks left by the old belt. slowly slid the tumbler back on to the new rollers rotated the tumbler a couple rotations clockwise to set the belt put the bulkhead back on the front with 5/16" sheet metal screws. in 4 corners, reinstalled the from panel along with the door switch wires and it was done. now the moment of truth. plug the machine in and turn it on!. Bingo! it runs so well you don't know it's even running. after this repair the machine performs even better. it actually takes LESS time for clothes to dry! AJS

Loud squelling noise when dryer was running

Removed front of dryer, removed inner cover, slid roller belt off of drum to remove drum. Only tricky part was the two clip rings. My pliers had .070 tips and the ring holes were smaller so I had to run to HD to buy a pair with various size tips, ended up using the .047 tips. Only one wheel was squeaking when I rotated them by hand, but I had ordered both as recommended here so I replaced them both. Put everything back together feeling the belt to make sure it was not twisted and rolled smoothly when I rotated the drum by hand. Works great now. Lots of thanks to this site and all the posters who share their info!
