the idler pulley keeps tension on the belt itself, and is a complete unit,, it slides into a grove,, and once the belt is correctly installed ,, thats what holds it in place, heres a good reply from another question that may help you with pictures http://www.wikihow.com/Change-a-Clothes-Dryer-Belt
Make sure the idler arm with pulley is in the right location and then hook the spring into the idler arm bracket, then look for where the spring might have been attached on the frame of the machine within the limits of a stretched spring.
I will also send you a website that may help you, they have schematics of dryers and it may give you some help. http://www.partselect.com/ if not then try this one. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx
I hope this helps
You should have an idler bracket with pulley and spring.
The spring will normally attach to the frame of the dryer.
I will send you a couple of websites, they may have a schematic of your dryer and where the parts are located.
You can verify your belt installation by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page, then locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under Special Features. Refer to Diagram E under the Maytag heading. If you say you have the belt installed correctly, make sure the tension spring is still installed. I hope this helps you.
make sure the belt is in the groove on back of drum for belt then run belt from left side of drum over and around pulley on motor shaft going clockwise then continue around pulley and run belt toward belt tension pulley the one with the spring on it go counterclockwise around it at this point you will have to pull up on tension pulley to get belt on then realease that should take care of it ed
Make sure the belt is properly routed. Often, there is a tensioner that 'adjusts' the belt. It is a wheel that is on a pivot with a spring attached to a fixed point. It may be located anywhere around the drum but is likely near the motor frame. Now, with access to the motor shaft, start the belt over the shaft in the direction of motor spin as much as you can. Try to turn by hand or grab the belt and pull along. ...if it does not work..put the belt over the motor pulley after pulling back on the tensioner. You can use a long screwdriver as a lever. No tensioner? There will be a method of adjusting the placement of the motor. Make sure the motor shaft comes out square to the belt.
