    I failed to see the model number on your post, I am sorry for that. Yes, if indeed it is the belt, you can fix it. The belt is a maytag specific so a generic belt will not work. I have found a belt in 9 US warehouses in multiple quantities for 21.87 before shipping. If you would like more information, please e-mail me at robert_fawbush@yahoo.com and I'll be happy to assist you.

Which wa does the belt on a Maytag Atlantis dryer run around the motor and idler pulley. I have the belt groove side down, which is the way it goes in the Atlantis, but I couldn't find a schematic for the...


Hi you're correct in putting it groove side down. Now make a loop, like when you first started tying your shoes with the slack around the drum. Push the entire loop just beneath the idler pulley through the metal channel and apply pressure to the idler pulley assembly. pushing it towards the motor pulley until you can get the loop you are holding over the motor pulley and Waa Laa you've installed your new belt. Good Luck!
