I have a Maytag SE-1000 stacking washer dryer setup. I am trying to replace a broken dryer belt, and have the disassembly done, and the replacement belt in place. My problem is trying to understand how the...


Most dryers are tension idler pulley directed but must first go around the grooved pulley on the motor shaft. make sure the idler goes on the smooth side of the belt and the grooved side of the belt is in the grooves on the motor shaft.

Maytag dryer makes loud squeeling noise when it gets hot. Drys clothes but makes such a loud squeeling noise. Have to let it cool down to continue to dry.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

A loud squeal is usually caused by either an idler pulley bearing. a drum roller bearing or a loose belt.

Since you did not include a model number I have to respond with generic across the board information. Idler pulleys, drum rollers and belts for Maytags can be found on this link:
(Just past half way down the page) http://www.apwapplianceparts.com/Laundry+Appliance+Parts/Dryer+Appliance+Parts+/Dryer+Drive+Belts+Idler+Pulleys+and+Support+Rollers/default.aspx

You can enter your model number on this page and find your parts: (Choose model number)
http://www.appliancepartspros.com

If you do repair it yourself.... do yourself a HUGE favor and either take a picture of the belt routing or draw a belt routing diagram BEFORE dis-assembly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

How do I open it to get access to change the belt?


All maytags i have encountered open from the front. There should be two screws at the bottom of the front or under opening of door. The top pops off and opens up to lay back. Swing front over to side of machine being carfull of door switch wiring.Look through botttom of dryer and you will see motor and idler pulley setup. belt is routed around drum, under pulley and around motor shaft. Hope this helps.

Dryer is making an extremely loud squealing noise. Was told I needed to replace the idler pulley. What do I have to take apart on the dryer to do this?


Turn the power off to the dryer (unplug it).

The back of the dryer will have to be removed. Then disconnect the drive assembly and start checking the pulley components. I have included a picture for a Maytag dryer belt routing below. If it is the idler pulley, it will be the pulley shown just below the motor pulley.

If it turns out to not be the idler pulley, it may be one or more of the drum support pulleys around the drum, so check those too. This would also be a good time to check the belt.

Install dyer belt MAYTAG


Hello there
Here is a detailed instruction for you ok
  1. Remove the two screws that hold the control console to the dryer; they are located on each end of the console. Turn the control console forward onto its face. Disconnect the wiring harness from the dryer to the console. Press in on the locking tab and pull the connectors apart. Set the control panel out of your work area. To remove the top, insert a putty knife between the front and top panels. Locate the retaining clip and push in on it to release the corner of the top panel. Lift up on the corner and release the opposite retaining clip. Set the top panel out of the way. Two screws that attach the front panel to the sides are located at the top corners. Remove the screws and swing the top of the front panel out so that you can access the door switch wiring harness. Disconnect the wiring harness from the door switch and lift the front panel away from the dryer.
  2. Replace the Belt
  3. Locate the idler pulley by reaching behind the drum and motor assembly. Using your hand, push the idler pulley to the left to release tension on the belt2.gif. Notice the routing of the belt around the motor and idler arm for reference when attaching the new belt. Remove the belt from the motor pulley. Lift up on the drum slightly and remove the belt from the drum.

    With the rib side pointed inward, lift the drum up and set the belt around the drum. Route the belt through the motor pulley and idler pulley. Pull the idler pulley to the right to reapply tension to the belt. ok?
  4. not too hard
  5. hope this is verry helpful for you
  6. Best regards MIke

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.

Need a btlt route so i can put the new drum back in my ge profile


route the belt around the drum, pull the spring loaded idler pulley to the postion that requires you to hold it there..
put the belt : 1 through the motor pulley and around the idler pulley, or 2. around the idler pulley which ever works to keep the tensioner tight. (Idler pulley, tensioner same thing its the pulley not on the motor.
Once you put the belt on the durm, pull the idler pull so there is tension on it it should be clear how it goes.

Which wa does the belt on a Maytag Atlantis dryer run around the motor and idler pulley. I have the belt groove side down, which is the way it goes in the Atlantis, but I couldn't find a schematic for the...


Hi you're correct in putting it groove side down. Now make a loop, like when you first started tying your shoes with the slack around the drum. Push the entire loop just beneath the idler pulley through the metal channel and apply pressure to the idler pulley assembly. pushing it towards the motor pulley until you can get the loop you are holding over the motor pulley and Waa Laa you've installed your new belt. Good Luck!
