Suggested Maytag belt incorrect?

I purchased the Maytag belt (part no 35001010) as suggested by osmium2 and found it too be too big. Unfortunately I no longer have the old belt for comparison. It's possible that I'm suffering from brain damage and can no longer recall how to thread the belt (it's been several months since I last changed it), but I do not believe so (unless someone could explain how I could possibly not figure it out). Dryer model number is dv4015j.

It was not installed right. It goes over the drum, down and around the grooved pulley, then back up over the tension pulley. You have to pull the motor over to the right as you will be looking at it. That will flex the spring and allow the belt to slip over the tension pulley. Remember to make sure and put the belt on the middle of the grooves. There will be nine grooves on the pulley and only seven on the belt. Just leave one groove open that is on the side closest. This should clear the air on a simple operation that is often written as if we are all supposed to be appliance repair people. Best luck everyone!

    Ugh... I failed to post a follow-up stating that I _DID_ get the belt to work. Parted ways with this unit a long time ago. Summary: Belt GOOD; Me: BAD :-)

Samsung dv4006 dryer belt

Possible replacement belt quality problem for the Samsung DV4006 / DV4006J / DV4015J / DV665JW and the Maytag MDE2400AZW dryers:

The original belt for the Samsung DV4006 / DV4006J / DV4015J / DV665JW dryers is a Megadyne 1975 H7. The part number is DC66-00121A, but when ordered, a Dongil 7PH1975 belt may be shipped instead of the original Megadyne. The Maytag MDE2400AZW dryer uses the same belt. The part number is 35001010, but when ordered, a Dongil 7PH1975 belt may be shipped. It seems that the Dongil belts are inadequate for these dryers. They delaminate and may fail prematurely. Even new, they cause a thumping sound each time the seam goes over the motor pulley. Other than Megadyne, another good belt is the Hutchinson 1975H7. The appliance part number is 1258288107.

Where to get an original Megadyne 1975 H7 belt:

eBay member 'appliance-parts' in Colorado, USA has emailed me that their Samsung DC66-00121A belts are Megadyne. Website: Email address:

eBay member 'ladydi1975' in Ohio, USA has emailed me that their Maytag 35001010 belts are Megadyne. eBay store: Discount Appliance Parts.

Where to get a Hutchinson 1975H7 belt:

eBay member: 'zodiac300_0' in Brighton, United Kingdom. I have ordered a 1975H7 belt from them and received a Hutchinson.

Other possible causes for belt failure:

--Motor pulley designed too small. The belt may be flexed beyond it's minimum rated radius.

--Excessive heat in the dryer due to lint in the vent line or vent line too long. The Dongil belt may be less heat resistant than the Megadyne.

--Worn drum bushing DC66-00062A.

--Metal burrs on the steel motor pulley. Deburr by inserting a small screwdriver in each groove while the motor is turning without the belt.

--Belt on the wrong track. The motor pulley has nine grooves and the belt has seven ribs. The belt must be in the middle. It's easy to place it one groove forward or backward by error.

--Small scratches on the drum where the belt contacts it. The scratches may be like small knives and damage the belt. Sand with a fine sandpaper.

--Idler pulley damaged or bearing worn.

How to replace the belt:

--Remove top cover.
--Remove vent panel (in back).
--Unclip door switch from front panel.
--Disconnect wire harness from door switch.
--Unscrew panel left of control console (from behind the panel).
--Unclip panel left of control console (from behind the panel).
--Unscrew control console.
--Unclip plastic panel on bottom, front
--Remove screws behind door. Remove door.
--Unscrew large front panel, remove.
--Inspect vent line for lint buildup, drum bushing (back of dryer) for wear, motor pulley for burrs and debris, drum for scratches, and idler pulley/bearing for damage.
--Vacuum all lint.
--Install belt around drum, idler pulley, and motor pulley. The ribbed side of the belt contacts the drum. The flat side of the belt contacts the idler pulley. Press on idler pulley to stretch the spring, and line up the seven belt ribs in the center of the nine motor pulley grooves.

If the version that came on your computer was a trial, you will need to purchase the product to get a new, permanent key - or you could probably uninstall and try to see if you can do a trial on one of the other versions - that could get you another 60 days. If you need the links, I can get them for you, but they are easy to locate on the MS site...

If it was a permanent version, your hardware vendor should solve the issue, as they are contractually liable for this type of support. Thanks for rating FixYa!

New belt

First put the belt around the small pulley, shd be the motor pulley i think. Then ease the belt around the big pulley & gently move clockwise if the pulley is on the left side; anti clockwise if you are inserting on the right side. The belt will fall into place. Actually it is very simple.
