Appliance: Model MAYTAG STACK DRYER #MDE2400AYW
My Repair & Advice
Ended up taking ENTIRE dryer apart to get to the motor/impeller shaft /fan assemply.
This was a stack dryer which made it extremely difficult to work on because everything is packed into a smaller space then a regular dryer.
The most difficult thing was trying to remember how the drive belt was routed through and around he tensioner/idler pulley assembly anl also reattaching the idler/tensioner assembly into the corect place was also difficult.
If I had to do it again I would most deffinently take a picture of it with my cell phone before taking everything apart . This would have saved several hours time during reasemmbly.
I tried to reference on line pictures by Googling the model and found no useful pictures for the small stack dryer. There where plenty of pictures to reference for the larger dryers .
