On the above model Maytag dryer (S/N 10534362SF) it started making a roar on start up and then (lateter) developed into a rattle that woudl go on continuously when drying. I finally motivated my self to remove the front cover and the sheet metal that holds the drum in place and discovered that the blower fan blade mechanism is loose on the shaft. It has play front to back as well as perpendicular to the shaft. There are three "slits" in the plastic collar that fits on the shaft, but it appears that they are there by design (i.e., not ragged edged ... they look like they were molded that way). So, what could cause this and what do I need to replace?

Then you just need to replace the wheel reg linked you...the old one is rounded out on the "D" shaft ...
