My Maytag LDG9824AAE dryer had a broken belt. I

My Maytag LDG9824AAE dryer had a broken belt. I replaced the belt with the part from maytag and it isn't holding tension. I can see the grease marks from the previous position of the pulley wheel and an tell that the wheel needs to be farther to the right to produce tension but it is not staying there. Can you please give me some suggestions?

    http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic... go here and make sure you have belt on correctly if spring is ok,rap the belt around the pulley and inside the metal bracket kind of looks like a v,then grab the belt opposite the motor pulley and pull belt over and around motor pulley,when you feel belt connected the belt that went on motor pulley should be next to other side of belt and in the v.hope you i explained this clearly for you,i just know how to install the belt without thinking,trying how to do it is harder than installing it lol.hope this helps,the older maytag belt is a little tricky compared to other belts

Don, the drum on this model rotates on a bearing in back. This is most likely where the sqeeling is comming from. You will have to service this from the front. Should be 2 screws just above the door on each side. Remove them and the top will lift up. Slide the top off forward. Once the top is off, you will see a couple of screws holding the the front panel and door assy. on. One on each side inside front panel. Unplug the door harness and remove the front panel and door. Undo the belt and the drum should pull straight out. Watch out not to get the belt hung on the motor. Now you will see the rear bearing and shaft bracket that the drum rides on. It may need to be replaced or just lubed up real good. Catriver.

The belt needs to be above the metal. Otherwise the repair looks good. Easy fix. Thanks for the pic.

Peace Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!


There are many variables!
Every year thousands of people die trying to repair electrical appliances them selves!

You are worth more than that!
Bless you!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505 near me they only charge $75 service call which is reasonable in today s market!

Unfortunely, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm1

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

Check belt & belt tensioner. Belt could be broken or tensioner spring broke releaving tension around motor pulley. You can do this by removing access panel on back of dryer, make sure you UNPLUG dryer before you do anything. Broken belt requires removing front drum end, not so easy, but do-able

Are you sure that you hooked the belt up correctly, as it sounds like you may have missed the tensioner pulley. As this will tighten the belt around the middle of the drum

The Maytag Dryer MED5570TQ0


Hi lesterjabbow;

A lot of these dryers have a long fiber belt that runs from a pulley on the motor thru a tension idler pulley and goes all around the drum. I suspect this belt is either broken or has come off the drive pulley on the motor. You can remove the back of the dryer easily with a 1/4 or 5/16 nut driver and immediately see if the drive belt is good. Any Maytag dealer will have a replacement part and it is easy to install

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a ranking if appropriate Thanks

Remove the screws from the bracket from the vent tube at the back of the dryer.
You can access the belt from there.
If the belt is off then the tensioner will push a switch to shut the dryer down.
Just hook the belt back on or replace the belt whatever needs to be done.
See other posts for this model number on how to connect the belt back if it came off.
They do that when turned the wrong direction.
