I am trying to find instructions on how to change the belt in my really old maytag de91 dryer. i'm thinking it's a belt problem because it still gets hot and sounds like it's spinning but it isn't.

Start with the small roller, then use something to lock the large roller in place. once it is locked and unmovable, counter clock-wise, push the belt in. once it is in remove the lock then push it to roll and balance itself. pretty straight forward, just have the drive exposed first

Dryer squeeking while tumbling & leaves black smudge on clothes


it sounds like a drum support roller is going bad or the belt idler pulley. i think maytag has a kick panel on the bottom that can be removed. look inside with a flashlight and you may be able to see something. if not, you may have to take the drum out to get a really good look. make a note and study how the drive belt serpentines around the motor, pulley, and drum so you can get it back together.

The on line instruction for replacing Maytag dryer belts say " insert a flat screw driver under the top panel and it will come off. Problem is: on my older model, there are two large metal screws...


My 1955 edition of the Maytag top popped off because it used the spring clamps you refer to. If there are screws there, you will have to remove them. Once the top is up, you will see how to remove the front. If you can get this far, the rest of the job will become self evident (I think) .If you need more help, let me know

It probably needs a belt. Changing the belt on a dryer is a pretty simple job if you have some mechanical aptitude. The new belt is around $20 and you can save a good bit over a service call if you can try it yourself. Here is a website with good illustrated instructions as well as parts. You can also do a search on Google for "replacing belt" and your particular make and model for more information.
