Replace belt on maytag dryer lde8824ace


If it is a model where the belt goes around the drum rather than a separate pulley the drier must be dismantled far enough to allow the belt to be freed from the drum.
Belts need to be replaced so infrequently manufacturers make little provision for in-service replacement and generally the drier must be taken back to the stage in production where the belt was originally fitted.

This can be a rather extensive process with many models and in the absence of dedicated model information we often must resort to simply keep removing screws until the thing falls apart. By the time a belt needs replacing the drum bearings and/or seals are often generally in need of attention in addition that the extra work, though inconvenient and dispiriting, is rarely wasted.

When belt breaks is there an automatic shut of switch because the dryer will not run?


Yes on MOST dryers there is a belt safety switch. It is there to prevent you from using the dryer with a broken belt. (i.e heat but does not tumble) When the belt breaks the idler pulley arm drops down and trips the safety switch.

If you need help with parts, and replacement belt procurement / owner replacement of the belt, we need your model number please so we can pass you the correct information.

Just respond here and someone will help you.

Belt slipping / takes a minute to start tumbling


Before replacing belt check the space between the drum and the front AND rear seals with your fingers for foreign objects caught there. This may make the drum too tight to turn. Belt is usually broken before it needs replacing.

Also check idler pulley next to motor and motor itself with belt off both pulleys making sure they both turn freely. I think something is binding. Check all those BEFORE replacing belt.

Disconnect plug before opening unit.

My Neptune dry tub does not spin. I tried to spin it by hand and it was difficult. Can I repair this myself rather than have a repair man do it?


As you may imagine, a dryer is about the most simple household electric item there is. It is a gigantic tub that has a huge belt around it that attaches to an electric motor. The belt is rubber and subject to wear, as well as extreme heat caused by the whole process.

90% of the time its the belt, but unusually, your motor could be fried (which makes repair worthless). It's no wonder people make a living off of taking these units off the side of the road, replacing the belt for $20 and selling them on CL for $100.

You need to locate the model number and/or serial number for your unit. Also you need to open it up (which should be easy) and confirm the belt is mangled, and the motor spins fine. The belt could also just have jumped the track, and you can replace it. Replacing the belt is similar to putting a chain back on a bicycle. Usually if the belt jumps the track, it needs replacement anyway. Take the belt off/out of the way, and run the dryer to confirm the electric motor is running fine.

After that plug you model number and/or serial in google, with "replacement belt" and you should be able to find information on it.
