Problem solved.

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 Neptune Dryer MDE3000AYW. Replaced pulley and arm (pulley was seized to it), rear drum wheels, front drum glides, belt. Cleaned throughly inside. Worked like a charm for about 6 loads. Went to hit...


I'm guessing that your belt my have been misaligned, which means, no problem!

But, I recently had a machine that had a motor that would not turn, only hummed. I vacuumed the lint, then blew the lint out of the motor with a compressor, and vacuumed again. It still needed a push start to get the motor turning, but it starts on its own, now. So, if you have a lot of lint buildup, it can eventually stop the motor

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.

    First thing would be to make sure there wasn't something else in the drum. Next, it is possible that one of the rollers the drum rolls on could have a flat spot. This will require opening the case of the machine and getting a look at those rollers.

    My maytag dryer has a loud squeal. I replaced the belt, but the squeal persists


    Check to see if the belt has landed in the groove instead of on the outside of the drum. One might assume that the groove is there for the belt, but inspection of the drum will show previous belt location about an inch beside it. To fix, rotate the drum counter clockwise while pulling the belt away from the groove on the bottom of the drum. Once it has rotated a complete revolution, it should be in alignment and the noise should disappear.

    My maytag model no.mav4755aww makes a whinning sound at the beginning of the spin cycle


    Hi
    Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.Since you hear whining it means that the bearing is damaged and the seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually...
    Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.
    Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.Then replacing the bearing is suggested.
    Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.

    My Maytag gas dryer (MDG3000AWW) is making a terric noise. Checked the belt, rollers, motor and blower. All seem well. The drum however does not rotate smothely, Appears warped. Is this possible?


    A warped drum is possible, but not likely. Check the bearing at the rear of the drum to see if it is breaking loose from the drum. If still under warranty, take advantage. If not, and the bearing IS breaking loose, the mount can probably be welded. If the drum interior is enameled finish, the damage can be repaired with epoxy. If the drum is stainless steel, the weld area can be re-polished to original. Hope this helps!
