"sqealing" noise when drum rotating
Disconnected power supply, removed front panel, removed tub support bracket, removed electrical lines from light and door switch( to have better access to install front guide kit), removed belt, removed drum, removed old rollers, installed new rollers and rest of installation was in reverse order of taking machine apart. In order to install the front guide kit(which I've never done before), I had to watch the installation instructions via you-tube. This was a tremendous aide as the instructions were simple and very adequate.

The belt was broken
Using repair video , I unplugged dryer, removed front panel (after learning how to use a socket wrench) then suffered through. 2 days (off and on ) of replacing the belt, then I lost the clips from top panel, found them and finally got them back on. When the dryer was finally ressembled, it worked properly! I am 63 years old, a grandmother and have been ill for years, therefore doing this repair was a victory for me. The product was definitely the correct one. I will order again soon as I have a leaky washing machine. Years ago, I would never have tried to repair an appliance on my own. Thank you

Old tumbler belt broke.
As per instructions received with the replacement belt: Removed front panel by unscrewing two screws, removed tumbler front (two screws each side), placed new belt on tumbler where the old belt had been, removed plate to access motor pulley and idler pulley and installed new belt according to diagram provided with instructions. Had trouble getting the two retaining clips at top of from panel back in place. Dryer is functioning very well now.

Noisy drum while drying.
Replaced the wheels at the back and also the belt. ( I also removed the lint buildup around the drum felt and on the heating chamber and motor. That alone helped the noise problem. I did this prior to ordering parts, as I had taken it apart to see what the problem might be.)I don't have any additions to what I saw in the repair video. That video showed me all I needed to do. Great video. First time the dryer has been worked on since it was purchased in about 1984. We were a family of 6, so its good stuff.

Broken belt
Repair video is excellent and a major factor is choosing this supplier. The only thing I did differently was thread belt around tensioner wheel through rear inspection port. This is not a difficult job and seeing the entire procedure in a detailed video is like having experience.

Broken dryer belt.
I followed the instructions on each part that was sent to me. I've taken the front and tumbler assembly off before, so that was already easy. The tip that is not offered that makes a huge difference in replacing the belt is this. Make sure that you take the belt out if the bag and let it rest for a few minutes before installing. Also, make sure that you have the ribbed side of the belt facing up on the tumbler. It is easier to get it right while the tumbler is out of the unit than when it's inside and you are working in a 1 foot section.

Squeaking noise when starting up
Unplug dryer!! Remove two screws, pop front face off. Took picture of wires connecting dryer front. Disconnect two wires, set door aside. Removed four screws and removed front piece that holds drum in place. (Cleaned all the lint out while it was off.) Checked where the belt location was on drum, (should have taken a pic). Carefully removed drum. Removed both rollers and put new ones on. I did not replace the belt at this time, it was still in good shape. Replace drum, be sure the belt is in correct place. It will not work if it is in wrong area of drum. Replace everything, be careful to not lose a screw!

The motor died on my 38 year old Maytag dryer.
Because of the New Year's Holiday, it took 6 days to get the 2-3 business day ordered parts. I disassembled the dryer and cleaned it as I went. During disassembly, the blower wheel fell apart when the retaining clamp was removed. When the drum was out, I had good access to the motor which did not move when I tried to turn the shaft. I then ordered the parts and waited for 6 days. The new motor electrical connections were different from the original motor but the proper crimp terminals were provided with the motor and the connection instructions were clear. Assembling the belt required an internet search to determine the correct side of the belt to the drum. The instructions said smooth side to the drum, but the belt had a rubbery grooved side and a flat brought side. I confirmed from an internet search that the "smooth" side in the instructions meant the rough side of the belt. If you do this job make sure that you have a crimper for the wire terminals and a ring clip pliers for the two ring clips that hold the blower wheel in place.

Dryer belt broke.
1. Take off rear lower access panel, if you're lucky to have one. 2. Take off front panel with two screws on the bottom and lift it out. 3. Disconnect the two wires for the door switch. 4. Remove the four screws holding the tumbler support to the frame and set aside. 5. Remove the broken belt. 6. Put the new belt smooth side down around the tumbler. You'll have to lift up the bottom of the tumbler to get it past the bottom roller. 7. Push the belt back but not into the groove at the back end of the tumbler. 8. Put the belt around the motor and idler pulleys at the back rear access panel of the dryer as pictured in the instructions. 9. Make sure the belt isn't twisted and rotate the drum clockwise a few times to get it seated on the tumbler drum. 10. Put the front pieces back together. 11. Start it up and watch it from the rear access panel to make sure the belt is on correctly. 12. Put the rear access panel back on. 13. Congratulate yourself that you did it and saved a ton of bucks calling in a repairman !

Dryer was very noisy due to worn drum rollers.
For belt installation, I found that pushing the belt rearward into the drum roller groove made it much easier to get the belt over the idler pulley. Once I had it over the idler pulley it was a simple matter to slide the belt forward into it's normal operating position.
