SOURCE: dryer belt replacement

remove the front panel. you may need to remove a kick panel below the front panel. the top panel connects to the front panel by some plastic push in retainers (you can loosen them with a screwdriver) You need to prop the top panel up. the belt goes over the top of the drum down to a drive wheel that is located at the bottom of the dryer.

SOURCE: replacing maytag dryer belt

looking at the back of the motor where the belt pulley is you would grasp belt coming down from the left side of drum then come across the top of belt pulley that is on motor shaft going clockwise around that pulley then continue back to your left and over the top of belt tension pulley going counterclockwise around that pulley this is when you will have to raise pulley against spring pressure to get belt on then release belt tension pulley make sure that belt is still in belt groove on the drum hope this helps ed

SOURCE: Need to change the belt on my Maytag Performa Dryer

The belt is a 341241, a pretty standard belt. To install it you must get the front panel off. Do this by using a putty knife: 549402b.jpgUse this hady DRYER BELT ROUTING guide

SOURCE: replace dryer belt

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.

Maytag Neptune Dryer smells like burning rubber or plastic...


The drum belt could be rubbing on something inside. Does the dryer make a squeeking noise? Se if there are small rubber particles on the bottom, this will indicate a deteriating belt.

MAYTAG DRYER LDE4914ACE BELT CHANGE


The belt goes around the pully so that the pully tension takes the slack out of the belt. Just like the serpentine belt on your car.
