Older DE303 Maytag Dryer
« on: April 14, 2019, 03:25:02 PM »

Does anyone know if I can get rollers, glides / guide strips or even a maint kit for this old dog?  I can't remember the last time I work on one this old but would love to keep it going if I can.  1988 model.  Haven't been on site yet.  If anyone has any tech info on this guy, that would be a bonus.

Thanks

Your best bet would be to search on eBay for repair parts.  I've been doing it for years and still able to source repair parts for my almost 30 year old Maytag DG606 gas dryer.  Most of the parts for the Maytag dryers are interchangeable such as rollers, blower wheels, and glides

I have learned not to use generic stuff on Maytag, not worth it. Did factory service for 26 years and did a lot of clean up on other companies using generic parts not lasting more than 4-6 months. It may have changed but to me not worth the hassle. On other manufacturers the generic are sometimes better than original.

Several issues with this old guy.  I ended up inheriting it and replaced the glides, belt, roller, idler and blower wheel.  Total cost of parts was under $45.  Can resell and make some $$.  Thanks for your help guys!

Love them old Maytag dryers!  Easy to repair, cheap to fix and very reliable unlike the newest models!

If you want to get some parts for the older model Maytags and Speed Queens the dealer close to me has some or can provide an alternate item . He sometimes has a few items from older machines and is very helpful. Contact Bruce at Heineke Electric at this phone 309-394 2626 .  His business is located in Benson, Illinois. I buy from him all the time for old and otherwise obsolete machines.

The phone number I provided was wrong. It is 309 394 2616 for the dealer in central Illinois
