Maytag Gas dryer roller repair
« on: April 21, 2011, 10:09:53 AM »
Hello. I have a maytag gas dryer model D3312 Series 07 that nees to have a roller replaced.  First are there two rollers on this model, or just one?  Is there anyplace I can find a manual for this model? I've checked the siters mentioned here with no results. Is the replacement an extensive job, can I do it myself or do I need a repairman?   Thanks for any help.

Here is a photo of the back wall with the wheels removed.
The bottom photo shows the heater and right above it is one of them wheels. That one tends to wear out quickest. Maytag roller Good price

I just worked on one recently that had a squeaky wheel. You need snap ring pliers to get the roller off. I used sand cloth to smooth over the roller shafts and lubed them with Zoomspout oil. No new parts were needed. The guy told me he had rigid vent piping but he had a very long run of it going out the house. I advised him to clean that thing out so the wheel wouldn't overheat above the element. Click on pictures to enlarge:

Wow! That was very helpful, thank you JW. Not being mechanically inclined the pics were wonderful. The model is older, probably 20 years. I went on the Maytag site but since the new owners took over my dryer doesnt even have enough numbers to register on their model search, imagine that lol. I really appreciate the reply, thank you again so much!
