SOURCE: replacing maytag dryer belt
looking at the back of the motor where the belt pulley is you would grasp belt coming down from the left side of drum then come across the top of belt pulley that is on motor shaft going clockwise around that pulley then continue back to your left and over the top of belt tension pulley going counterclockwise around that pulley this is when you will have to raise pulley against spring pressure to get belt on then release belt tension pulley make sure that belt is still in belt groove on the drum hope this helps ed

Usually the carrier pully "tension pully" has a square hole in the front of it. It usuallu takes a 1/2 inch breaker bar but occassionally they will use 3/8 breaker bar. Find the hole, insert breaker bar, or a ratchet (you may need a pipe on the ratchet) and put pressure on it. Generally counterclockwise is the direction you need to go. That will release the tension on the belt while you are maintaining pressure on the breaker bar while it is inserted in the pulley. Remember how the belt is routed.

Depending on how much of the bolt broke , you may be able to get it out wit a pair of vise grips or an extractor bolt. If it broke flush to the engine block you'll have to drill it out and try to exctract the rest. I would highly recomend leaving this part for a mechanic with experience to do because if you don't do it right it will cause more damage than you want to deal with. at this point I would say to have it towed to a shop and let them extract the broken bolt. this is not something you want to try yourself if you haven't done it before. Best of luck

Place the deck in the lowest position using the hydraulic piston (if applicable) or the manual cutting-height adjuster.
Remove the deck-to-PTO belt from the PTO by releasing tension on the idler-arm pulley. This is a spring-loaded handle that turns in only one direction by hand and relieves the tension on the belt. Slip the deck-to-PTO belt off the PTO pulley after the tension is relieved.
Remove the deck from underneath the mower or tractor.
Locate any belt stops and loosen them with the ratchet wrench and proper socket. Belt stops are located on the deck and are the small metal brackets that guide and secure the belt to the pulleys so it will not jump off when under heavy use, or stretch from normal wear.
Remove any pulley covers by removing the retaining screws using the ratchet wrench and a socket.
Loosen the idler-pulley retaining bolt (located on the underside of the mower deck) to replace the deck-to-PTO belt. Removing the bolt is not necessary. Loosen the pulley enough to wiggle the belt free from the pulley and remove and replace the belt.
Remove any arbor covers (if applicable) that conceal the arbor pulleys by removing the retaining screws with the ratchet wrench and a socket to replace the mower arbor belt.
Locate the tensioner pulley on the mower arbor belt to replace it. Loosen the tensioner pulley bolt enough to slide it and release tension from the belt. Remove the belt from the arbor pulleys and replace it.
Slide the tensioner pulley back leaving about 1/2-inch of play in the belt and tighten the bolt. Reverse the procedure to put the rest of the mower deck back together and reinstall on the mower or tractor.
