It depends on if its a newer model or not. If its not a newer model (usually with the controls on the front). Most of the time there are two clips under the lid in the front, take a putty knife or flat end screwdriver and push in on the clamps. Use flashlight to check to make sure the clips are the because without knowing which model it is its hard to know if they will be there. Pop up the lid and off to the left and right you will see 1 screw phillips or a 1/4 inch nut on each side. Than tilt the front panel back and lift up because it is on hinges. The drum may fall forward. Wrap the belt around the drum and around the pulley and motor shaft. If this is a true maytag than putting the belt on will confuse you because the belt has to go around the pulley backwards. If you get stuck please contact me.

Where can I buy a replacement belt for my Maytag Neptune MDG5500AWW dryer?


Nearly every appliance store and appliance repair shop sells replacement belts. Your area Sears / kMart retail store will have them, too. Many hardware stores sell them as well.

if you don't mind waiting, you can find them online, too. Here's a list of places that Google found for Maytag Belts. You should use a combination of Maytag dryer model number and the number that appears on the belt to obtain a replacement.

Good luck!

Maytag dryer won't rotate after blower wheel replacement


Check the drive belt and belt tensioner. From the way you describe it, the belt is loose and with a load in the drum, it will not rotate due to belt slipping.
