Stripped threading on back of dryer
« on: September 03, 2011, 04:13:18 AM »

I just bought a used maytag gas dryer model number mdg7600aww and the threading to attach the flexible gas connector on the back of the dryer is stripped.  I am not sure what part number I would need to buy based on the part diagram and how easy it would be to replace.

Thank you for the part number!  I am running into another problem of removing that pipe from my dryer to install the new one.  Are there any tips on removing this pipe?  I am using channel locks now and I am not getting anywhere.  I am worried the torch I am applying to remove the pipe is going to damage one of the other components.  Thanks!
