How to remove rear brake drum on a toyota tazz 2004 model

3 methods: Sometimes you have to get to the adjusters from behind the drum, and turn the brake shoes inward, so the drum slides past them. Sometimes tricky to turn the adjuster wheel inside the drum (look for a rubber plug to remove and see the adjuster.) A couple of small screwdrivers will be needed, one to turn the adjuster wheel, and one to push a little clip away from the adjuster wheel so it can turn-tricky till you get the hang of it.
2. Best way to remove the drum, if your drum has two small drilled and threaded holes just out from the drum's center hole and opposite each othe on the drum-those holes are for drum removal. Find or buy two short bolts that will fit the holes and turn them in evenly. The bolts will contact the backing plate and force the drum outward. Usually you need to get it just moving a very little, then it will come off.
3. As a last resort, you can always heat the drum with a propane torch till the metal expands from the heat (15 minutes?). Tap it all around with a hammer, it should come free. Often what holds the drum fast is the center hole can have a rust build-up-sort of tacks itself to the center hub.

Maytag Epic Dryer Model MED9700SQ0, everything lights up, power is on, but drum will not turn and no heat.

Can you tell if the motor comes on? If it does, then it could be a broken belt.

Replaced the heating element what ever its called. and still not heating up' its politless

Disclaimer: I don't know this particular model, but in general, tumble dryers have 2 or 3 interlock switches that need to be checked:
1. Door interlock: this allows the drum motor and fan to energise and the heating element to be turned on: Does drum turn and fan come on? If so, it is not this.
2. Overheat switch: located in exhaust path of fan: usually re-settable - have you located this and reset it?
3. Humidity sensor (some models have this, some work on time only) - this can fail open circuit and the drum and fan won't come on. (Same check as number 1)

No heat coming in drum

Probably a bad heating element (which he will have to take it apart to see).

Heat on drum won't turn

if the drum is not turning its the belt its not hard but can be a pain for a beginner a repairman would charge at least 150 dollars to fix. It would only take him about ten minutes to do.
