Easy repair for an accountant like me! The idler pulley wheel was shattered. I replaced the belt too. Remove front panels and panels covering drum. Before removing drum note how belt is mounted. Remove dryer drum and belt. Remove idler pulley wheel. Clean out with a sweeper. Put on new idler pulley wheel. Put belt on drum and have someone hold drum in place. Put belt around idle pulley and motor. You need two hands and have to stretch inside to get it around pulley and motor. Test rotation. If ok, reassemble panels and your done. $30.00 repair!! Works like new!

Grinding , drum flopping , .....noise !
I won't go into all the details of the repairs .....The videos this company provides are A+++.. Some would say I would have been better off purchasing a New dryer ...LOL if I had to use a appliance repair man for this job ...Probably ...but ...using this site certified parts , and using the easy to follow instruction videos ....It was truly a very easy repair . I spent more time getting everything perfectly clean inside the dryer housing ,and letting the high temp adhesive cure than I did actually installing the parts.I can't recommend this company or the parts more ...Just take your time with removal , cleaning , and installation ....Patience !Excellent ...parts quality , shipping speed , and video installation instructions !!!! My dryer now works and SOUNDS like a new dryer ....Thank you !

The original pulley was making loud screeching noise. Lubricating it with wd40 would only lessen it, not eliminate it.
I took the lower front cover, filter, and the filter housing off after unplugging the dryer from the wall socket. Then I reached into the dryer and released the belt by pushing against the spring tension. The old pulley came off the shaft and the new one slipped into place with no effort. I then re-routed the belt in the proper direction around the idler pulley, re-installed the filter ducting, filter, and lower cover. Plugged it back in and started the dryer, and the noise was completely gone.

Drum would not turn & auto dry would not advance
So glad for this site repair info, videos and reasonable prices saved me at least $100 or more. This repair cost me less than $14. I removed bottom front panel screws. - Then removed middle section door panel and lint filter assembly that swings away from the bottom and hangs by the two hooks under the top lip. Disconnect wires at this point. Remove two screws which held the front of the top. Lid is hinged on the back. Opened it up leaning on the wall. Remove 4 screws holding the bulk head. Lift front of bulk head and drum together to release from slots and removed them. See the videos. HELPFUL HINTS - Clean carefully everything you can get to while it's open (Temp Sensor). This may sound crazy but - set up snap ring pliers to COMPRESS rings for removing and installing the snap ring because the spring spreading the pliers will hold the snap ring under slight pressure while you replace the idler bearing. I cleaned all the roller bearing shafts with a very light hair clipper oil wiped clean with paper towel and lubricated the shafts with SILICONE GREASE used on rubber O-rings in water filtration systems. I happened to have some for our pool pump. Tiny gray cup from home depot made by Danco, Inc. MSDS said was stable to 400 degrees non-flammable. Dryer runs like new. Also upgraded to 4" rigid duct. Good luck with yours

Dryer got too hot then drum got noisy
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 belt 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.

Loud squeaky noise from dryer
replaced felt pads, idler pulley wheel, and put on a new belt because the old one looked well worn. drum rollers moved ok so I did not replace those. Idler pulley wheel did not want to spin freely which is why I chose to replace, especially after reading others' stories on this site. Video on the web-site was most helpful. I've fixed dryer parts before, and repairing is not the most difficult job, but I am teach school for a living. It was great to get out the door doing it myself for $50, and that includes purchase of a new tool.

Wheel on idler arm shattered
Unplug dryer! First pry up the top of the dryer in the front with a large screw driver and tilt it back out of the way. Next remove 2 sheet metal screws (near the top) to remove the front of the dryer. when you pull the front swing the front open like a door, no need to disconnect the wires. There is 2 or 3 more sheet metal screws to take off the sheet metal piece that holds the tumbler in place. Pull that sheet metal piece then pull out the tumbler and belt. A C-clip holds the wheel in place so remove clip with a small screw driver or a c-clip tool, be careful not to loose it, it is loaded like a spring. Put new wheel on and spring clip. Then put the belt and tumbler back in. To re-attach the belt to the motor you must go through the hole in the back of the dryer. if your dryer is vented out the back you must remove the vent, that is the hole. Its a little tricky but saves a lot of time. reach in there and get the belt around the motor, then around the idler wheel to tension it (check you tube to see how the belt goes if you are not sure.) then make sure it is around the tumbler good and put it all together and try it out. When it is apart it is good to check the wheels that the barrel rides on, the should spin freely. The idler wheel should go on the shaft easily, I believe it is slightly tapered so if not going right on than flip it 180*.

Very noisy dryer drum, sounded like it was gargling gravel!
Took apart too much trying to diagnose problem. Searched on model #, found the website, followed prompts to the problem, parts came up with videos on install, watched them, ordered parts, 3 days later, installed new parts, perfect. MY ADVICE: GO TO this website 1ST. Watch videos, then open machine & order parts, would've saved an hour. THIS COMPANY ROCKS!!!

(#1) on-line video proceedure did not match my dryer exactly
My dryer appeared to match the video, requiring first to raise the top. I poked at the spring clips with putty knife to no avail. On-line chat was great....seems my 2004 dryer requires to open lower front panel, then upper front panel, then top. (#2) The numerous 5/16 hex screws are NOT all the same length. May not matter; but watch it. (#3) The worst part was that my snap ring pliers had too fat of nibs to enter the two small holes in the external snap ring on motor shaft. Most of my time was spent filing the pliers' nibs to a smaller diameter. Lower panel screws are more accessible if dryer front edge is raised. Earned about $2 in lost change for my effort. Thanks, Dryer Fairy.

Dryer was squeaking when initially turned on.
I really think the squeak was coming from the idler pulley, however due to the age of the dryer (10 + years) I decided to change the belt, front drum glides and rear drum rollers as well. The videos were very helpfull. The whole thing took about two hours, but I had to remove a folding door and pull the unit out of the small utility room to work on it. Actual work time on dryer was about 1 hour including vacuuming the lint and dust from inside. In the end the dryer is quiet and works like new. This site made things easy and the parts arrived quickly. Very happy with the whole experience.
