Re: how do i change the pully on my maytag sde2606...

I wold first look to something in the drier drum glides not letting it turn easy enough in my opinion the pully its self is not your culpretits its doing its job real well or it wouldnt be squeeling something is stopping the drum from turning with the drier off check it by turning it by hand feel the resistance thats where the promblem is something jamming your drum

I have a Maytag Electric Dryer #sde2606ayw, when i push the button it makes humming noise but wont start, i can turn the drum by hand so i dont think the engine is frozen. Could this be a belt problem?

no thats wrong even if you can start it up by hand the motor can still be bad period. if there is no response and all relays test good behind the control panel cover then it is indeed ur motor. cha ching if u call a repair person.

Squeaky elec. dryer

This could be attributal to a rear drum roller lacking proper lubrication, or having been overheated. Also, a dry idler pulley bearing could cause this chirping. Don't allow this problem to continue without investigating the cause.

The belt goes around the pully so that the pully tension takes the slack out of the belt. Just like the serpentine belt on your car.
