Be sure you have the correct belt and that it is routed as the manufacturer recommends. Many times it's simply that they gave you a belt that was too big.

Belt keeps coming off on my maytag neptune front load.help!


Is the rear pulley tight? If the rear drive pulley is not tight it will wobble during high speed spin and drop the belt. Only other cause I can think of for this would be the rear bearing starting to fail allowing the entire shaft to wobble. You would be aware of this courtesy of a very loud sound during spin though.

How to replace the belt on the Maytag Neptune FAV6800AAW?


See if my Clutch Fix post will help. I also have links to Service Manual which will be big help. The drive belt can be walked on the Clutch Pulley but it is a very snug fit even with the drive belt tension bolt loosened. Watch you fingers as you walk the drive belt onto the clutch pulley….Rich

How does the tumbler belt wrap around motor and tensioner?


First of all disconnect your dryer from power source. Remove the front door.Start from the motor shaft, the top of the belt must lying on the pulley. This is how to do it. Pull the pulley toward the motor shaft and let the top of the belt lying (rest) on the pulley, this will help the pulley to stand firmed and the drum belt will look tighten a bit.
This should solve your problem

Belt won't stay on the pulley


These belts are really sensitive. Try messing around with it. Making srue that the belt isnt coming off the big tub pully. You tub pully isnt loose is it. Make sure the bolt that hold the pully onto the tub is tight on. Make sure the pully isnt loose. Inspect it for any small craks where that boltt tightens up. If the pully check out ok. Check the small motor pully as well. Make sure that isnt loose or anything. Pull on it if if its loose then thats you problem.. Inspect both pullys good. I would assume belt is in good shape right? If both pullys check out ok, then i would try to get the belt on and just mess around with it, spin the pully and if you se the belt starting to slip off adjust it as you keep spinning the pully....hope this helps

Maytag neptune washer sounds like tornado during spin cycle


Hi!

The reason of this noise is from loose lower front weight mounting bolts or a loose bolt securing
the driven pulley. Check the motor adjustment bolt for tightness. The noise could be from a loose wire harness, plastic purse-lock wire harness retainer on upper hose hitting the top cover or a plastic injection mold standoff on the outer tub bearing housing may possibly be interfering with the driven pulley. Also, check the drive belt for a weak spot on the belt. Ussually felt on the backside of the belt as a "flat" spot. Check the belt for a weak seam and replace it.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Replacing belt on dryer


FIRST, OPEN THE DOOR AND REMOVE TWO PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS ON EACH SIDE OF THE OPENING. TWO GO THROUGH THE HINGES, AND TWO ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE OPENING. THEN, PULL THE OUTER PANEL FORWARD FROM THE SIDES NEAR THE TOP. IT IS HINGED AT THE BOTTOM. LIFT IT OFF THE HINGE WHEN YOU HAVE THE TOP EDGE PULLED FORWARD. YOU WILL HAVE ABOUT SIX OR EIGHT 5/16 HEX HEAD SCREWS TO REMOVE
AND THE FRONT BULKHEAD WILL THEN COME FORWARD TO REMOVE. AT THIS POINT, THE FRONT OF THE DRUM IS EXPOSED AND YOU CAN SLIP THE NEW BELT ON FROM THE FRONT. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE DIAGRAM ON THE BAG FOR PROPER ALIGNMENT AROUND THE IDLER AND MOTOR PULLEYS. IT WILL BE EASIER TO INSTALL THE BELT IF YOU LAY IT IN THE GROOVE NEAR THE REAR OF THE DRUM, BUT THAT IS NOT IT'S FINAL RESTING PLACE.
AFTER YOU HAVE THE BELT AROUND THE PULLEYS, REPLACE THE FRONT BULKHEAD WITH FOUR SCREWS, ONE FOR EACH CORNER. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T FOLD OVER THE FELT SEAL AROUND THE FAN HOUSING. SLIDE THE LINT DUCT PORT INSIDE THE FELT SEAL. ONCE THE BULKHEAD IS IN PLACE, PULL THE BELT OUT OF THE GROOVE AND SLIDE IT TOWARD YOU UNTIL IT LAYS ON TOP OF THE MARKS THAT THE OLD BELT LEFT BEHIND.
ROTATE THE DRUM MANUALLY COUNTER CLOCKWISE TO BE SURE THE BELT IS ALIGNED AROUND THE DRUM.
IF IT IS NOT, THE BELT WON'T STAY ON THE PULLEYS.
AFTER YOU ARE SURE IT IS O.K., REASSEMBLE THE REST OF THE DRYER IN REVERSE ORDER.
