The belt is a 341241, a pretty standard belt. To install it you must get the front panel off. Do this by using a putty knife: 549402b.jpgUse this hady DRYER BELT ROUTING guide

Hi


To change the belt you'll need to remove the top paenl and then remove the drum and you would be able to see the belt. You can disassemble it by the following procedure--

Drum Removal / Roller / Glide Access--

  • Disconnect power supply to unit.
  • Remove Top Cover and Front Panel,

Top Cover / Door Switch / Front Panel /Gasket Removal-

1. Disconnect power supply to unit.
2. Use a plastic putty knife to depress the locking clip between the Top Cover and Front Panel.
3. Disconnect wiring from the Door Switch.
4. Depress the locking tabs on switch side and remove through the front.
5. Remove two screws, 1 each side, from the back flange of the Front Panel.
6. Tip Front Panel back and remove. Rotate Front Panel to the back side and remove gasket.

Hope this helps...

I cannot figure out how to get my Maytag DE308 apart to replace my dryer belt.


Two screws at the base are removed first (after yall unplug the dryer)

Your belt is a 312959

It goes back on like this:

Notice the slick side of the belt goes to the drum.
Get the belt down in the groove on the tub and you will have trouble.

Use zoomspout oil to lube the rollers and idler. It is safe for dryers and can be purchased at Ace hardware stores. Clean her up and party on!

Where can I buy a replacement belt for my Maytag Neptune MDG5500AWW dryer?


Nearly every appliance store and appliance repair shop sells replacement belts. Your area Sears / kMart retail store will have them, too. Many hardware stores sell them as well.

if you don't mind waiting, you can find them online, too. Here's a list of places that Google found for Maytag Belts. You should use a combination of Maytag dryer model number and the number that appears on the belt to obtain a replacement.

Good luck!

My Maytag Dryer model DE308 takes 2 hours to dry a load of clothes. I have air flow, but after an hour, the clothes are still damp. THe dryer does not have the heat that it used to. I know that with the...


Good day,
Your right on the heating element.
If your positive the vent system to the outside is clean, then
Remove the front panel of the dryer, and inspect the blower wheel. If worn on the shaft(slipping), it needs replaced.
2. Remove the whole front panel to access the blower housing and the chute going to the lint filter. Clean as needed. (common problem).
3. If everything checks clean, then the thermostat that is mounted on top of the heating element canister is the most common problem but is only one of the thermostats.

Maytag uses a lot of air versus heat for drying. That is why it is important that part of the system is correct.
