Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
I installed a new belt on a Maytag Electric Dryer. Everything seemed to work as described in the "fix it yourself" manual. However, the path of the belt doesn't seem right. The belt goes around the drum then around the motor spindle then over the idler pulley and then rests on a 1" wide metal bar. The bar provides tension on the belt.
I just bought the dryer two months ago and the belt already broke. I think the belt broke becuase of the metal piece it rubs on. See photo below.
I can't see an alternate path for the belt. Any tips would be appreciated.
The belt needs to be above the metal. Otherwise the repair looks good. Easy fix. Thanks for the pic.
