I'm surprised they didn't catch fire. I've owned and maintained my dryers for 50 years...none came anywhere close to this amount of dust collection. Do these dryers suffer from a design defect that allows this to happen or what?

  These dryers always pack full of lint below the filter housing where the lint turns the corner on its way to the blower wheel. Take it apart and have a look.
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

  The thermal fuse is mounted on top of the blower housing if I remember correctly. It has to be a design flaw. The vents are clear, short run. Elbow out-up 4 feet-elbow out the wall. Most of the common parts for these dryers are slightly different than standard Whirlpool/Maytag. Belt, idler pulley etc. Oh yeah, to get inside is easy. Putty knife to flip the lid.

Thanks for the tech sheet. It got me inside my MGDB850 dryer back in business.
The blower stopped blowing, drum was still turning.  The pulley on the blower came off.  Belt and pulley just sitting on the bottom of the dryer.
Is this just a freak thing, or is there some trick to tightening down the pulley?
Thanks again,
Carl

You need to put blue loc-tite  on the threads of the blower wheel before you put the pulley back on .If you don't it's just a matter of time before the pulley falls back off .
