Maytag gas dryer. Belt broken. How do I open and replace it?


On the right front and left front of the panel there are 2 phillips head screws. They are about 4 inches up from the floor. Remove these 2 screws,lift the door panel out then down to dislodge the top clips. Remove the door switch wires and set the door aside. Remove 4 screws from the front drum support. @ on the right,2 on the left. Remove the drum support.Install the belt around the drum. The smooth side of the belt goes against the drum. Re-attach all the parts in front. Remove the belt access panel on the rear of the dryer on the bottom right side facing the dryer to arrange the belt around the motor pulley and tension roller.

Dryer will not turn


There is a belt like a fan belt that goes around the outer tub and onto a pulley that turns the tub, it may have slipped off, you should be able to take the top off of the dryer to check it.

Lay the top to the back.
Remove 2 screws on the right and left front inside corners of the cabinet.
Remove the door.

Scraping sound when tub is rotating.


The motor turning the drum may be bad OR the spindle or axle the drum turns on may be bad as well. The belt turning the drum may have been to tight thus putting too much pressure on the drum which eventually would wear it out then causing the noise which will only get louder as time goes on.
You will need to take off the back of the dryer and possibly the top to gain proper access to the drum and motor.

Belt


Dale, You might need a flat-tip screw driver, to pry the top up, in the front !!!!! If U R standing in front of the Dryer, The Top Should have Clips on each side in the Front, Pull the Top up in Front, and should Hinge Back, to expose the inside...You should see the Belt coming around the Tub.. I hope this Helps...
