However, there was a note with the kit that indicated that the symptom on that particular model might have been simply a bad cable connection at the motor end of the cable.

When you pop the hood the belts are to the leftside.you will need to remove the pass/side fender cover to see lower part of belts, heres a diagram to help you remove and install belts correctly, loosen bolts A-B to remove the ac/ alt belt loosen A a few turn and B is what releases tension as you turn it, after you tighten the belt then you will tighten A bolt, same with the other belt you loosen C-D bolts a few turns then loosen E to release the tension on the belt then install new belt and thighten bolt E after the belt is tight then tighten C-D bolts, hope this helps. good luck.dis regaurd the wiring diagram,1561ac9.gif0a0a47b.gif

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
