Cabinet Removal- Maytag & Amana Top Load Washing Machine
Remove the two (2)
screws (item #21 on the attachment below) from the bottom of the front
panel. Once the screws are removed, pull out on the bottom of the front
panel until the spring clips release for the cabinet top.
Pull the front panel off, remove the top screws and tilt top back. Rout the new belt around drum at the old wear spot with the grooved side against the drum. Next remove the back access door and rout the belt around the idler pulley and motor pulley. There is only one way to do this and get proper tension on the belt. Also, when you order the belt, ask if it has a belt routing diagram on the belt package.
If a toothbrush went into the dryer it would have to remain in the drum. There are no outlets large enough for a toothbrush to fit through. Can you tell where the noise is coming from? Also, check the drum good, the toothbrush could be hiding behind one of the ears in the drum and you probably can't see it. Try running your hand behind the ears inside the drum, it just might be there! I hope this will help you and thank you for using FixYa!

In assuming that you already have the front removed, you can raise the top by removing 2-5/16" screws located in each front corner that secure the top to the side panels. Then remove th 4-5/16" screws from the bulkhead that secures it to each side panel. Then use the diagram above on installing the belt properly.
