The video was very helpful except that the instructions for removing the top were for a different Maytag model than mine although it referenced the same model number. The front of my unit had two panels whereas the video showed a model with one panel. The replacement of the thermostats went smoothly. I had some difficulty getting the be lt on the correct side of the tension wheel. A drawing of picture would have helped. I could not replace the rollers as had wished because I did not have a tool to remove the retaining ring. I was pleased that the parts arrived within a day of my ordering them.
