Question about Dryers
We are replacing a dryer belt for a maytag electric dryer model #sde2606 and cant seem to route the dryer belt without it rubbing on the idler arm spring. As it is it will turn the drum but we think it will ruin the belt eventually.
Go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the next page look for "Dryer Belt Diagrams" under the Special Features section. There is an extensive list of dryer belt diagram illustrations available that you can print out. Maytag is listed. Hope this helps you.

Tips for a great answer:
On this model in order to replace the belt first disconnect power to the dryer. Looking at the front of the unit in the seam between the front panel and the dryer top, use a putty knife to press in & release the spring clips in the right and left sides of this seam to release the top panel. Lift the panel & rest it against the wall. Reach in & remove the 2 screws holding the front panel to the side panels. Once you have removed the screws, lift the front panel up slightly to remove the complete front panel from the stationary clips at the bottom of the dryer. Be careful with the wires going to the door switch. Either remove them from the switch or simply lean the front panel against the right side of the cabinet. Next, lift the drum and slide the new belt around the drum to the mark made by the previous belt on the drum. Be sure the ribs are facing down. Part number for the drive belt is 31531589 which over the years crossed to 341241. On your knees, reach back by the motor and idler assembly and lift the idler pulley tension arm to route the belt allowing the idler to take up the slack in the drive belt. Reassemble and dryer some clothing.
