Question about Dryers
The previous one had snapped
Is there a belt tightener you missed when you installed the new belt.
Check and see if there is one that fell down out of sight . Should have a spring on it if there is one.

Go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page, locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Scroll down to Maytag. The dryer belt diagram for Maytag should be listed as diagram E. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: New Maytag dryer belt too loose
is the idler pulley have enough tension on it,the tensioner on these can get bad and not put enough tension on the belt,push on it,it should take some force to move it,if you can get your fingers under the belt around the drum without much effort then replace the idler pulley and tensioner

1. remove top plastic panel (retaining screws are at back)
2. locate metal brace (12 incles long and 1/2 inch wide) on top of the cabinet (in mine it is on right edge)
3. unscrew retaining small bolts (there is one a few inches below on the inside of the cabinet too).
4. Repeat for left side.
5. push the back and front halves of the cabinet away from each other
6. slide the new belt around the front of the drum
8. if you need to tension the belt wrap 10-20 turns of insulation tape around the idler pulley

Check the belt routing over the idlers near the motor, there is a spring tensioner, also make sure idlers are smoothly rotating and not seized.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
