Drum doesn't turn in maytag neptune MDE9700AYW

I took the top off the dryer and the belt was very loose and just laying on the drum (but not broken, it appears) It would seem it has just come off but the more screws I take out to get to the innards of the dryer the more I need to take out. My fear is I'll get it apart and never get it back together.

Any manuals out ther online or somethin'?

Thanks,

EdO

Just remove the screws around the vent tube in the back and you can see the belt tensioner laying there on the floor of the dryer.
Most likely someone turned the drum the wrong direction and the belt came off.
The belt goes through the opening in the tensioner and under the idler pulley and then onto the motor drive pulley. Make sure to have the tensioner mounted into the floor first.
It just slides over into a slot and then over to the other side as tension is put on it.

Dyrer wont run lights come on but wont run


If the belt is not off, it may be a loose wire to the sensor that switches the dryer off when the belt is off or broken. Mine had that problem. If that doesn't work you will have to replace the tension pulley sensor.

Remove the screws from the bracket from the vent tube at the back of the dryer.
You can access the belt from there.
If the belt is off then the tensioner will push a switch to shut the dryer down.
Just hook the belt back on or replace the belt whatever needs to be done.
See other posts for this model number on how to connect the belt back if it came off.
They do that when turned the wrong direction.
