Hello all,

Newbie here, who has joined b/c I have a question about my dryer. It is a maytag stacked (on top of the washer) model LSG7806AAE and has been making a loud rumbling sound when it starts a cycle and when it ends. It takes a while to dry clothes, and after doing some preliminary research I think it is either the drum support roller or the blower wheel assembly that needs to be replaced (or both do).

 

My question is: how do I get to them? I don't know how to access the inside of the dryer. Do i unscrew the slanted metal piece between the washer and the dryer, or do I have to take the door and the front of the dryer off? Do I access it through the back of the dryer? The power and water tubing that connects the washer/dryer unit to the wall is only about 4 ft long, and as such I can't move the unit completely out of the closet (to access the back).

 

Suggestions?  Thanks!

Start the dryer, let it run for 15 secs or so, then open the door quickly and watch the drum.... if the sound is still being made when the drum is not moving, bad blower wheel is most likely the culprit.   

As far as access.  I'm not familiar with this specific model, but I would start by removing the panel in-between dryer and washer and then then possibly the control panel next.... sometimes the first cut is the deepest, and the rest becomes clearer.

Good Luck

Right part number, wrong video. You need to remove the slanted access panel between the washer and the dryer, then remove the front of the dryer, then the front bulkhead and the front of the blower housing. Everything is front serviceable, no need to pull the dryer away from the wall.

Appliance parts pro automatically post the video when you link to the part.... most of the time it is for the same machine, but because they use this part on other machines... well, ya get the picture.
