my husband has tried to get the top off before and cannot so I guess we cannot use your services......thanx anyway....jo

well this is not a huge job and I could walk him through it if you like, I do not understand what you need did you think we are affiliated with Maytag? I'm trying to answer your questions but not sure what you need. thanks Bryan

Okay.....but that would be some time to get the part......hoping we could get it at Home Depot. or Lowes......and use your help in installing it......but guess not ....thanx jo
if you have a local appliance repair or parts store nearby you can get it there , its a common problem and everybody carries them, home depot or Lowes however I don't believe will have it but you can call, the part # XXXXX 33001790 Sears has them on their website so calling them may be an option, thanks Bryan

In looking at the receipt from two years ago.....the part no was 33001783..not quite matching yours.....so now I am afraid to try and find the right one.......I guess a repairman must be called......we have not got a parts place close......jo
if thats what he put in it was the idler pulley.

its unusual for this to go again in two years, does it sound like a rattling or screeching?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No......sounds just like a chain might be connected on one end and the other loose as it goes around......still dries clothes......do you think it would hurt if we still run it and tolerated the noise until fixed...?
you can run it but it may get louder and drive you crazy, I'm 90 % sure its the blower wheel. we replace a lot of these, hope I've been helpful. thanks Bryan
