SOURCE: dryer belt routing on Maytag dryer model MDET236AYW

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- Drum not rotating (belt and motor both work)


I surely do hope this fixes it all.
The pulley that fell apart is supposed to. Well, not quite. It is not fastened inside the machine, and comes off easily. It is the belt tensioner. It fits into 2 slots on the bottom steel panel of the machine (The base)
You will be finding it is a pain in the neck to put back on, but you can do so. The belt goes with the grooves toward the drum, not away from it. The belt goes in a S shape around the motor pulley and the tensioner pulley. One you put the tensioner back in it's place nin the two slots, you will push (or pull) on it against the spring arm to "bend" it so as to get the belt back on.
Be blessed.

Fig. Fig. 17: ... remove the belt from around one of the pulleys to remove the belt

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.

  1. Attach a 15mm socket or wrench to the bolt attaching the tensioner pulley.
  2. On all 3.0L (OHV) engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.
  3. On 3.0L (DOHC) engines, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.

To install:
  1. Install the drive belt on all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley.
  2. Rotate the belt tensioner as outlined in the removal procedure to relieve belt tension and install the belt onto the tensioner pulley. Make sure the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys. Make sure the spring keeper releases or improper belt tension will occur.

Serpentine belt diagram for a 2003 Chevy unpalatable 4.3


Pop the hood of the car and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram. The diagram on the 2003 Chevrolet Impala is on top of the fan shroud. The diagram will be a picture of all of the accessory pulleys and how the serpentine belt is routed among the pulleys. This diagram will give you the exact direction for routing the new belt onto the pulleys. If you cannot find a serpentine belt routing diagram, take a notepad and pen and draw out the exact routing diagram of the old belt across the pulleys.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner. It is located below the alternator on the left front side of the engine. The tensioner on the 3.4 liter, 3.5 liter and the 3.9 liter engines will require a 3/8 ratchet to release the belt tensioner. The 3.8 liter engine will require a ratchet and a 15 mm socket for the belt tensioner. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise to loosen and remove the belt from the belt tensioner pulley.
  • 3 Slide the old belt from the belt tensioner pulley. Remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull the belt from the engine compartment.
  • 4 Route the new belt across the crankshaft pulley first. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley on the bottom of the engine in the center. Then route the serpentine belt across the remaining pulleys as directed by the serpentine belt routing diagram. Leave the belt tensioner pulley for last.
  • 5 Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise again to relieve the tension and slide the new belt across the top of the belt tensioner pulley. Release the belt tensioner and the belt will tighten up as the tensioner applies pressure to the belt. Make sure the new belt is properly seated in all the pulleys.
  • 6 Crank the engine and inspect the belt again to make sure that it stays seated in the pulleys.

    I need a diagram on how to open up the back or front to install the dryer drum belt for my Frigidaire FLSE60RGS0. we bought the belt, and I did get a diagram on how to install belt, but doesn't show us...


    Disconnect the water, vent duct, and electric connection to gain access to the rear of the machine. Be prepared to catch any water that comes out of the hoses.

    On the rear of the dryer, remove the panel that's behind the dryer section (upper panel).

    If the belt is intact, make a drawing of the belt's route.

    If the belt is broken, remove and discard it.

    Slide the new belt onto the drum to approximately where it belongs (lined up with the motor pulley). I think this model might have a groove for the belt where it rides on the drum.

    With the slack portion of the belt, squeeze it to make a loop and push it through and onto the tensioner pulley on the bottom of the dryer.

    Using the tensioner spring to relax the belt (pull it toward the motor pulley), slip the belt onto the motor pulley.

    Check the belt by pulling on it to see if the drum, motor and tensioner are rotating freely (don't pinch your fingers!).

    I am not the best at abstract description. I hope this helped.

    Good luck from Detroit, MI.

    Based on the information provided, it sounds like a broken drum belt is at fault. Below is an illustration of the drum belt.

    Here is a belt installation diagram:
    Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

    How do I change the ac belt on my 2500HD Silverado.


    UNDER THE HOOD IS A DIAGRAM OF HOW THE BELT IS ROUTED. TAKE NOTE OF THE WHITE STICKER ON THE FAN SCHROUD, JUST ABOVE THE FAN. THE TENSIONER PULLEY IS THE ONE YOU NEED TO ROTATE IN ORDER TO RELEASE THE TENSION ON THE BELT FOR REMOVAL. USING A 15 OR 16 MM SOCKET, ROTATE THE TENSIONER UNTIL YOU RELIEVE THE TENSION AND SLIDE THE BELT OFF ONE OF THE SMOOTH PULLEYS. THEN RELEASE THE RATCHET EASY SO IT DOESN'T SPRING BACK UP. UNRAVEL THE BELT AND INSTALL THE NEW ONE USING THE DIAGRAM. JUST A HINT: IF THE PULLEY HAS RIDGES THEN THE BELT HAS TO BE ON THE RIDGED SIDE OF THE BELT, IF IT HAS A SMOOTH PULLEY, THEN IT RIDES ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BELT. WHEN YOU ALMOST HAVE THE BELT ON THE LAST PULLEY, ROTATE THE TENSIONER AGAIN AND SLIDE THE BELT ON THE LAST PULLEY. IT HELPS IF THE LAST PULLEY IS A SMOOTH ONE. HOPE THIS HELPS ENOUGH TO FINISH THE JOB. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK.

    I need to replace the dryer belt


    The belt on a dryer is inside the body, usually accessed and changed as follows

    most base dryers
    • unplug dryer(220v is Not Fun)
    • remove lint screen
    • undo screws inside lint screen holder, screwing it to case lid (so lid can tilt up)
    • with putty knife or other blunt blade, release spring catches under front corners of case lid
    • raise case lid
    • remove screws 1/3 way down front corners of body holding front panel on
    • remove door switch cable from door switch
    • lift door off set aside
    maytag
    • remove screws from bottom bend of front panel
    • lift front panel off
    • remove doo switch cable
    • sent front panel aside
    1. drum motor felts and bearings are now accessible.
    2. lift drum and withdraw fully forwards
    3. with drum removed check support rollers for free movement, check drum slides and/or drum felts for wear, easier to replace now, if worn, than have bearings or slides cause belt to break again.
    4. loop belt loosely around drum at wear marks from prior installation
    5. reinsert drum onto rollers bearings slides felts as installed.
    6. loop belt around motor pulley
    7. pull tensioner pulley against spring to end of its travel
    8. loop belt around tensioner pulley
    9. relax tensioner pulley to tighten belt
    10. rotate drum by hand to ensure belt is aligned
    reassemble case in reverse order.

    Notes
    There are not many belt, felt, support roller sizes the local parts guy will have a belt, felt, roller to fit,

    Tensioner pulley may not be in place, breaking belts often pull them out of their mounts, the pulley and spring will be lying on the case floor, there is only one way they fit in to their mounts so they are easy to reinstall

    tensioner sketch is approximate, pulley may be on top run pulling down, or bottom run pushing up

    the repair is easy, it takes longer to type or read this than it does to repair the dryer

    Belts ~$14 Support Rollers ~$14/pair, felts/slides upto ~$25
    New dryer +$200 - its a good repair

    Hot point dryer


    the drum has dropped
    the drum is suspended on felt pads to seal the drum edges, nylon guides at the front, and rubber tyred thrust rollers to withstand the torque of the motor and belt at the rear.
    the usual cause is the rollers have failed, common fault, easy fix, cheap too
    good rollers look like this
    1ac2db2.jpg worn rollers like this
    34b5f0e.jpg
    try not to run the dryer till the rollers are replaced, the extra strain will break the belt,

    • unplug dryer(220v is Not Fun)
    • remove lint screen
    • undo screws inside lint screen holder, screwing it to case lid (so lid can tilt up)
    • with putty knife or other blunt blade, release spring catches under front corners of case lid
    • raise case lid
    • remove screws 1/3 way down front corners of body holding front panel on
    • remove door switch cable from door switch
    • lift door off set aside
    1. drum motor felts and bearings are now accessible.
    2. pull tensioner fully agains spring
    3. remove belt from motor pulley
    4. lift drum and withdraw fully forwards
    5. with drum removed check support rollers for free movement, check drum slides and/or drum felts for wear
    reassemble.
    1. loop belt loosely around drum at wear marks from prior installation
    2. reinsert drum onto rollers bearings slides felts as installed.
    3. loop belt around motor pulley
    4. pull tensioner pulley against spring to end of its travel
    5. loop belt around tensioner pulley
    6. relax tensioner pulley to tighten belt
