Our Ale 643 RAW Dryer emits a strong

Hello, Most likely the burnt rubber smell is that of the dryer belt trying to spin the dryer or the rubber rollers themselves on the tub of the dryer. These are the only rubber parts in a dryer and most of the time it is due to the belt needing to be replaced and having a worn area on the belt itself which then sometimes manages to become stuck on either the pulley or the pulley that is on the motor itself causing it to start to burn into the rubber. You would need to take apart the cabinet of the dryer and observe the dryer belt and if needed replace the belt on the unit. If you are in need of a diagram or step by step instructions please message me back your complete model number and I will locate your diagram and provide instructions on how to repair this issue your unit is having. I await your reply if you have any further questions as well.
Thank you,

the drum of the dryer that holds the clothes has a seal surrounding the entire front of the drum. once dried out alot of build up is accumulated and will cause your problem. also the belt and tensioner should be looked at as well when opened up for inspection

Belt removal instructions (and routing information) may be found on a sticker under the hood. I have posted a picture of the diagram below if these instructions have faded. The routing on the left is without the AC.

I am installing a new belt but the pulley that mounts to the ground i found was not attached and i am not posotive of its correct spot i need a diagram

The idler pulley goes in front of motor shaft. There is two slits in sheet metal where it slides in. after pulley is on. put the belt around drum and pinch belt together. put belt under idler wheel then put end on motor shaft. You can push up on idler pulley to get around motor.Make sure grooved side of belt is wrapped around drum. Good Luck!!

Low heat with matag dryer

I have been to the Maytag website and I could only find the installation instructions. Sometimes the wiring diagram will be located in an envelope on the unit. If the dryer isn't getting hot enough and you are sure that there is nothing empeding the airflow, then the thermostat is the only thing that can be wrong. These units are typically pretty simple.

All service is performed from the front except for the installing the belt back onto the idler pulley. That procedure is done through an 8" removable panel in the rear at the bottom.

Installing dryer belt on amana LE2910W

Please view Amana dryer belt installation diagram amana.gif Diagram A

Style: Flat with ribs
Installation Tips: Ribs face toward drum
Disconnect dryer from the power source before servicing!
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.

Let me know if you need any more information.

I am looking for instructions on how to change the V-belt (a.k.a. Multi rib belt - I think?) for a Maytag Dryer Model # MDG9520BWW. It is the belt that turns the tumbler.

there are 2 screws at the bottom in front of your machine. remove them.pull out on the bottom of the front .it should fall off,the support for the tub is there.screws on right and left must be removed .front support should come off.careful with the wires.the belt must be released from the idler pully .pay close attention how the belt runs on the pully before you remove it.hope this helps.also on most matag dryers `the smooth side of the belt goes to the tub.
