Remove old felt. do not get adhesive on you it is hell to get off. Use disposable gloves if possible. put glue around the tub, install the new felt, the fold face toward the back so that you can see the stitching. Allow 15 minutes for the adhesive to set up. Reinstall the drum, make sure the ridge of the drum is seated to the rollers in the back, put belt on the line where it has been riding and run hands around the belt making sure it is not twisted and the ribs are facing the drum. install the idler pulley in to the slot in front of the motor, pull belt through the idler pulley, pulley idler pulley to the right and re install the belt to the motor pulley.

I bought it in 2003 neptune dryer and the 3 bar inside the dryer broke and the dryer is not working right . we have to dry them 3 time before they are all dry


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Phillips-head screwdriver
* Replacement belt

1. Disconnect the power cord of the Maytag Neptune dryer from the dryer electrical outlet.
2. Open the dryer door, and locate the four screws on the inside lip of the door opening. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the four screws. This will disconnect the front panel from the shroud assembly.
3. Grab the front panel on each side with your hands. Lift up on the front panel to unhook it from the retaining tabs on the side panels. Remove the front panel, and set it out of your way.
4. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the four outside perimeter screws that secure the shroud and tumbler front to the dryer cabinet. Pull the shroud and tumbler front away from the tumbler while lifting the top panel partially up.
5. Reach both of your hands underneath each side of the tumbler. Use your left hand to grasp the idler pulley, and pull it to the left while using your right hand to slip the belt off the motor pulley. Pulling the idler pulley to the left releases tension on the belt. You can now slip the belt off the back of the tumbler.
6. Take the old belt with you along with the model number of your dryer to purchase a new belt. Most appliance repair shops will have replacement belts in stock. Make sure that the new belt matches the old one by comparing the two.
7. Slide the new belt over the rear of the tumbler with the ribbed side pointed to the inside. Using both hands under the tumbler, route the belt around the motor pulley and idler pulley. Pull the idler pulley to the left while routing the belt, and carefully allow the idler pulley back to the right to apply tension.
8. Reattach the tumbler front and shroud to the front of the cabinet using the retaining screws. Place the front panel over the side retaining tabs, and push it down to lock it in place.
9. Open the dryer door, and secure the front panel to the shroud using the retaining screws. Close the dryer door, and plug the power cord back into the dryer electrical outlet.

New Maytag dryer belt too loose


is the idler pulley have enough tension on it,the tensioner on these can get bad and not put enough tension on the belt,push on it,it should take some force to move it,if you can get your fingers under the belt around the drum without much effort then replace the idler pulley and tensioner

How do you open the dryer to fix the belt


First before you you raise the top, open the cover on the back by the motor and let the belt loose from the motor pulley unless the belt has broken. If it has go to the lid. Slide a thin flat blade under the front of the lid and feel for the two clips several inches in from the corners. Push straight in on a clip while pulling up on the lid at the front edge and it will release the lid at that point. Do the other clip. Lift the lid. Three are usually two screws, one on each side holding the front tight. With the screws removed, pry out by each of the push clips on the side. The front should be come loose. Swing it away slightly paying attention to the wires to the door switch. Slide the new belt over the drum and work it to where it ran in the past. Put the front back on and snap the lid down. When putting the front on guide the front panel and the drum together at the felt seal. Open the panel on the back near the motor. Reach in and spring the belt tightener over and put the belt around the motor pulley. Let the spring tightener tighten the belt. Put the cover back on.

How to repair instructions


The rollers behind the drum need heat resistant grease. You'll need snap ring pliers to remove them. Clean and inspect everything inside, vacuum all lint. Have a spare belt, they're cheap. Check the tensioner pulley for lube, but don't get any where the belt touches.

Broken belt that turns the drum


While I don't know about your specific dryer, most dryers are set up the same. I just replaced the belt on my Maytag LDE8404ACE. It was easy. The hard part was cleaning out 14 years worth of lint and fuzz that coated everything inside. Here's the instructions:

1. Unplug the dryer or disconnect power.
2. Remove the front panel. There are two screws, each is about 4 inches up from the bottom of the front panel. Unscrew them. Then hold the front panel along the bottom edge and pull it away from the dryer. Once it's away enough, the clamps along the top will pop and disengage from the dryer. Be sure to note the wires connected to the door switch are connected to the dryer. Disconnect them if you need to move the panel away from the dryer.
3. With the front panel off, you should be able to reach inside the dryer to remove the old, broken belt.
4. Remove the tumbler from the dryer. It's held in place by the tumbler front which is secured by 4 screws, 2 on each side. That piece will pull straight out toward you. With the tumbler front out of the way, the tumbler itself will come straight out as well. I recommend taking it out and cleaning the inside of your dryer while it's open. A vacuum hose works great. Also, check the pulley and the back two wheels that the tumbler rests on to make sure they turn easily. If not, you may want to grease them. Also, it's normal for the idler pulley to appear to be loose and wiggle in place. Once a new belt is installed, it's under tension from the spring so any play that exists shouldn't be a problem.
5. put the new belt around the tumbler with the smooth side of the belt against the tumbler. Use the old belt marks on the tumbler to align the new belt. It's easier to hook the belt to the idler pulley and motor pulley from the back. So we'll get to that part in a minute. Just let the belt hang loose for now.
6. Reinstall the tumbler front and secure with the 4 screws you removed earlier.
7. Reconnect the wires to the door switch, if you removed them earlier.
8. Reinstall the front panel, reversing the steps you took to remove it in #2 above.
9. Go to the back of the dryer and remove the access panel along the bottom right hand side.
10. From there, reach in pull the dryer belt around the idler pulley. Then take the belt on the left side of the pulley and move both the belt and the idler pulley to the right, until you can get the grooved side of the belt onto the motor pulley. I've attached a diagram with instructions.
11. Once connected, manually turn the tumbler so that the belt will align and make sure the tumbler turns as easily as it did when you first removed it.
12. If the belt looks good and you've manually turned the tumbler at least one full revolution (to ensure the belt didn't get twisted), then plug the dryer in and turn it on to make sure it works correctly. If so, then re-attach the access panel on the back of the dryer. You're done!0798e0b.jpg
