Question about Maytag Dryers
It made a lot of noise, then the drum would not rotate. The belt had come off. So I put it back on and it cam off again. Maytag has 3 possible drum belt configurations I also need to know the configuration for this model MDET236AYW; Could there also be an issue with the idler pulley assy (tensioner pulley assy.)?

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.

WARNING Use caution when removing or installing the belt and make sure the tool does not slip from the drive belt tensioner or personal injury or damage to the belt tensioner and the belt may occur.
