Dryer belt routing on Maytag dryer model MDET236AYW

No way to tell how the belt goes on as you are unable to see what you are doing. A diagram should be available. Company itself not helpful, except call a repairman. I have owned and replaced belts before with little or no difficulty, but this one has got me. Model MDET236AYW.
Thanks

With the drum removed, loop the belt around the drive motor an run both strands of the belt under the tension pulley. You have to be carefull on getting the drum back in place while working the belt back on a LITTLE AT A TIME. Once installed verify the belt is not caught on anything and you should be good to go.

Maytag Dryer Belt Diagrams and Replacement


Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.


For all single belt models use this diagram:

Drum Will not turn


you probably have a broken drum drive belt. They are not a difficult do-it-yourself job.

Your local appliance parts outlet should have the belt.

Replace dryer belt


Pull the front panel off, remove the top screws and tilt top back. Rout the new belt around drum at the old wear spot with the grooved side against the drum. Next remove the back access door and rout the belt around the idler pulley and motor pulley. There is only one way to do this and get proper tension on the belt.
Also, when you order the belt, ask if it has a belt routing diagram on the belt package.
