Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

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 belt is wrapped around the idler pulley. Wrapping counterclockwise keeps the belt in contact with the motor pulley but wrapping all the way around the idler pulley makes the belt too short to get fully around. Wrapping clockwise leaves the belt too long and it also does not contact the motor pulley at all. Need advice.

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.

SOURCE: replacing belt, can't seem to get belt tight. Need to know how to wrap belt around pulleys.

You can find the belt routing for your Maytag here:

If it won't tension, perhaps you have the wrong belt. The correct belt can be purchased from your local source or this website.

For those of you with other Brands of dryers start here:

Note: After unplugging dryer; The belts for most regular dryers are accessed by removing the front panel.

I have a stacked Frigidaire FEZ831CA washer/dryer combo and when running the dryer it makes a very high pitched (AND LOUD) screeching sound. Any ideas as to what might be the problem? Thanks, Sean


screeching sound
Sean, Bad felt gasket body to drum, if belt drive on dryer, it could be worn and slipping, making a screech, or if not the belt, the drum may have a worn bearing on its hub allowing it to run crooked and rub where it should not.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

The belt is still attached to the transmission right?? It sounds like the brakes may be stuck. Or are both belts off and the motor still trips out?

My dryer squeaks terribly


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Squeaking sound from the dryer comes when the belt is either broken or worn out, before replacing the belt also check the idler pulley because if that is bad then it also needs replacement with the belt. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Washer works fine dryer does nothig


Looks like my Maytag. My dryer belt is broken so doesn't tumble. Check by taking two screws out of tilted panel and look at belt. If it isn't heating probably heat coil. If nothing probably electrical. Maybe door switch is open circuited.

The dryer on my maytag stacked combo lse7804ace the motor works but the dryer doesnt spin. Broken belt?


You will need to either re-install the belt or replace it. I would assume that it's broken because it's not that common for it to just run off the pulleys.

Maytag stacked washer/dryer fills with water, makes noise like it's working, but won't agitate, but at the end of it's cycle pumps out but won't spin either. Is this a belt problem? If so how hard is it to...


Definately sounds like the belt is off. Not too big of a problem for small hands mechanics. Usual problem lately with Maytag is the spindle pulley. For some reason they haven't been tightened properly and the pulley and belts are falling off. Pull it out from the wall remove the panel and see what you've got, really simple on the bottom end. Complicated stuff is up in the control panel. Make sure you get the pulleys lined up as close to level as you can or the belt will jump off on you during spin cycles. Good Luck!

The hard work is over! The old belt should pull out from the drum area if it is broken. There should be two ends to it now. Get a new belt and put it over the front of the tumbler. You should, (with a flashlight) be able to see where the old belt was running. Get the new belt close to that spot.. I believe your model ran with the smooth side of the belt to the drum.It will not look right to you, but the tensioner passes the belt through the pulley and motor pulley on the grooved side of the belt.Once the belt is on, reassemble the dryer front in reverse of disassembly.
