Most dryers are tension idler pulley directed but must first go around the grooved pulley on the motor shaft. make sure the idler goes on the smooth side of the belt and the grooved side of the belt is in the grooves on the motor shaft.
Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.
For all single belt models use this diagram:
Style: Flat with ribs Installation Tips: Flat side of belt against drum
Go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page, look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Refer to Diagram E for a Maytag dryer. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
Usally put dryer belt around the drum first
then around motor the tensioner pulley has to to be pulled up when you do this to get the belt around tensioner then you release the tensioner pulley to put tension on belt
Hi you're correct in putting it groove side down. Now make a loop, like when you first started tying your shoes with the slack around the drum. Push the entire loop just beneath the idler pulley through the metal channel and apply pressure to the idler pulley assembly. pushing it towards the motor pulley until you can get the loop you are holding over the motor pulley and Waa Laa you've installed your new belt. Good Luck!
A lot of these dryers have a long fiber belt that runs from a pulley on the motor thru a tension idler pulley and goes all around the drum. I suspect this belt is either broken or has come off the drive pulley on the motor. You can remove the back of the dryer easily with a 1/4 or 5/16 nut driver and immediately see if the drive belt is good. Any Maytag dealer will have a replacement part and it is easy to install
