The belt usually comes off the rollers if you turn the drum by hand. The link below will show you the belt configuration for most Maytag models. Maytag machines are made in several configurations.

When I push the start itll start but then right away it stops

If your dryer only runs when you hold the start button in, you probably have a broken dryer belt or it came off inside. There is a belt safety switch near the motor that if the belt comes off or breaks, it won't let the dryer run. There are 2 screws in the top lip of the door area that the door would close against facing up into the dryer top. Remove the screws and lift the top up. If you don't see a skinny black belt around the drum, it broke and fell down inside.

My gas dryer will not turn the clothes drum

The drive belt that turns the drum has broken off or fell off. Sears does sells these belts in a kit forn including the tensioner pulley. Purchase that. The top and front panel will need to come off to do this repair

Kenmore 62084 electric dryer belt fell off i need directions on how to get it back on

Good day,
I'll include a link that shows you how, however, there is usually a cause for the belt doing that.
You should make a close inspection of the belt, as well as all the bearings. You can check the rear bearings, by lifting the drum out.

Thank you for using FixYa

Screw fell out of pocket between drum and inerds...

dnkmett, the dryer actually comes apart from the rear. Remove the rear top section, remove the 28 screws holding the rear panel, unhook the belt and remove the assy. When putting it back together be sure to reset the broken belt switch after putting the belt back on. That switch is on the motor beside the idler pulley.
