As per the repair videos on the site, I searched the internet for a couple of supplementary videos just to make sure I was doing it correctly. It was was all pretty easy. Expect to vacuum out and clean out the interior of the dryer. Also, to make things easier, disconnect the bulkhead and exterior like in the video, but also keep the top flipped up until reassembling, it'll make it much easier. When reinstalling the belt, remember how the belt is going to go around the pulley, you'll have to do this without sight as the barrel will the way and you won't be able to see what you're doing. It's really not hard but just keep this in mind. Also, as you disassembling, it would help to snap some pictures of where each screw goes and how; reassembly was a tiny bit tricky as I didn't do this.
Were these instructions helpful?
Followed the Video Directions from website. All went as planed. The dryer is running like new now.
followed applianceparts video on youtube,although dryer somewhat different(older) ....video made the repair happen...
Remove door and front panel remove drum replace drum support roller and roller shaft.
Exactly like in the online video. The video was an excellent tool for this repair. Thank you, !
I pulled the entire unit apart, because I didn't , for sure, know what the problem was. I'm glad I did as it had years of crud and dust in it. The shaft and roller were easy to install. The belt routing was the hardest part, which was actually simple. It now makes no noise and dries really good.
Followed installation videos and removed entire front of cabinet including door, loosened belt and removed drum. Only problem was the snap ring pliers I had were too large to fit in the holes of the drum roller snap ring. Ended up taking two 3 inch deck screws with sharp points, putting them in the snap ring holes and removing the ring by that method. Did the same when replacing it although this time, had to have my wife put a flat screwdriver against it while I pulled it apart with the screws. Rest of the repair was quite easy and dryer works great.
1. bought the only snap ring pliers available at homedepot. 2. turned off the gas and unplugged 3. moved it away from back wall. 4. removed front panel. 5. removed drum housing. 6. slid off belt. 7. removed drum. 8 found one frozen roller and a second with roller washer severely worn washer. The pins on the snap ring plier were too large to insert into the spring rings. ground the small pins down with a power grinder until finally fit. (took a long time). Finally fit well enough to get retaining rings off. 9. replaced both shafts and rollers, though it was unclear whether the solid shafts needed replacement. 10. from rear, removed access panel and replaced idler pulley wheel. 11. placed drum back with new belt, then fit it over motor and pulley. Took a bit to get it fitted correctly. Much easier from rear panel than reaching around. 12. reinstalled housing and front panel. Problem areas: GET A SMALL SNAP RING PLIERS THAT WILL FIT ! Easier to install belt around idler pulley wheel from rear access panel. Replacement of roller shafts was probably not necessary. Works great now.
Watched 2 YouTube videos. 1. How to take apart a dependable care dryer. 2. How to replace a belt on a maytag dryer. We replaced all the parts. It was eeasy. When putting dryer back together make sure felt is straight. We did have to take it apart again there was felt sticking out inside the dryer and it caused the drum to not spin. Everything works great. And Thank you parts select. I received the right parts in 2 days without paying extra. I will use you again.
I removed the drum per instructions provided on the web site. Removed the two roller shafts. Installed the two new roller shafts and applied grease to the shaft. I secured the two rollers using the existing snap rings. I reassembled the dryer in the reverse order of dis assembly. Machine runs like it did when it was new. Easy job.
