Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer
Make sure the belt is properly routed. Often, there is a tensioner that 'adjusts' the belt. It is a wheel that is on a pivot with a spring attached to a fixed point. It may be located anywhere around the drum but is likely near the motor frame. Now, with access to the motor shaft, start the belt over the shaft in the direction of motor spin as much as you can. Try to turn by hand or grab the belt and pull along. ...if it does not work..put the belt over the motor pulley after pulling back on the tensioner. You can use a long screwdriver as a lever. No tensioner? There will be a method of adjusting the placement of the motor. Make sure the motor shaft comes out square to the belt.

ngfam1 At your service!
There are many variables!
Every year thousands of people die trying to repair electrical appliances them selves!
You are worth more than that!
Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
1(800) 905-9505 near me they only charge $75 service call which is reasonable in today s market!
Unfortunely, another point to consider!!
How old is the appliance?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!
You will be fine

OK, this one's a few years old. First, of course, disconnect power to the machine. Second, remove the two phillips head screws, one at L and one at R near the bottom corners of the front panel. Third, pull the bottom of the front panel toward you and unhook it from the dryer's top. Swing it to the side. You do not have to disconnect the wires to the door switch. Fourth, remove the four 5/16 hex head screws holding the drum supports and set it aside. Fifth, put belt around the drum. The smooth side of the belt touches the drum. Sixth, belt goes to the motor drive pulley and then around the belt tensioning idler pulley. Seventh, put the drum support part back on and turn the drum by hand to make sure the belt tracks OK and has no twists in it. Eighth, finish reassembly and test. Note: genuine Maytag belts usually have installation instructions on the back of the package, with a couple diagrams.

Testimonial: "Eureka! Thank You! I appreciate your assistance and now I can enjoy the rest of my vacation day!"
Check in the back and see if the belt has a wide span on it. If it does, it doesn't only go around the fan pulley but also the drum (Which is usually the case). THis being the case you need to look for and screws you can find on the dryer outer casing because you will need to remove the outer casing to get to the drum. If you look for screw on the upper part just inside the door many times the upper deck is on hinges and will tilt backward so you can view the top of the drum with the belt on it. Remember how it came apart; it goes back together in reverse manner. Once you usually find the belt tension pulley through the back of the dryer compartment, let the tension off the pulley and slide the belt off of it. Once you get the belt off put it back on just like the old one.
