How do i replace the drum belt on mayag LDE8304ACE ?


Hi Alan Payne

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley,faulty capacitor, or a faulty motor.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch,start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if necessary. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the two screws that hold the filter housing to the top of the dryer lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer by inserting a screwdriver between the top and frame on each side of the dryer to pop the lid up from the retaining clips.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards on a type of hinge and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine by disconnecting the door switch and removing the two screws located on either side of the dryer frame.
Move the door and front of machine forward to remove.
This will expose the belt,idler bracket and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor pulley.
Here is a link to see a picture of your belt routing in case the belt is broken when you open your dryer:
http://www.expertappliance.com/dryerbeltconfiguration.html

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you remove and lubricate the drum rollers.
And also clean the shafts of the rollers as they will collect hair,dust,etc and cause problems and then lubricate the shafts and rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil or a vasoline type of lubricant. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting dry and making a squeeling noise, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

I believe the belt on my kenmore gas dryer broke. if i attempt to fix it myself is it easily accessible? Will i possibly hit into anything that might mess up the ignitor or gas hook up?


Hi peaches 1230...
All your connections to the gas is in the back of the machine, you will be working in the front of the machine...I am going to send you directions to replace your belt but it is for an electric dryer, but the instructions for repairing the gas dryer belt is the same as an electric dryer belt.

It sounds like one of the belts is broken. It is very noisy if there aren't a lot of items being dryed. This dryer is pretty new, but after warranty. : ( Thank you.


Hi krisbri05...
Your problem does not sound like a broken belt because there is only one belt on the dryer, and if the dryer is still turning then the belt is ok.
It sounds to me like you have a drum roller that is getting noisy.
I will send you the info on a drum belt replacement, but I will also include the replacement of the drum rollers if needed

Is their a picture diagram of how to replace dryer belt on maytay dryer model LDE9824ACE?


Maytag belts are counter intuitive. They give me trouble even though I've done hundreds of them. Your model should look like the one in the picture below. I assume you know how to get to the belt but if not there are 2 screws at the bottom of the front panel you remove. Then lift the bottom of the panel up and out and it will come off. You will have to undo some other brackets to get to the drum

The belt goes on 'upside down' on maytag, meaning that the tread faces up. You should be able to see where the old belt was riding from the marks on the drum, just make sure it doesn't slip into the groove. Put it back together and undo the panel on the back, you should see this.

Image


That should be enough to show you where it goes. Pull the pulley over to release the tension and align the belt as shown. Replace the cover and enjoy your dryer.

Slipthe belt over the motor pully turn again making sure it is smooth. replace the top and test the operation.

Belt Re-assembly


If you have a really old dryer (not a neptune), and if the idler pulley is about 4-in diameter you have chosen the hardest dryer to replace a belt on. There is a diagram on the bag your new belt came in. The door in the back of the dryer will be helpful. The tricky part about this one is that the fabric side of the belt goes against the basket drum.

A Neptune belt is easier, but can still be tricky.
First, put the drum in position against the back wall; but without the front supporting ring. The rubber side goes aginst the drum. Line up the new belt on the drum according to the marks left by the old belt.
Reach under the drum and match up the belt to its position on the motor pulley. Lift the idler pulley up until you can slide the belt onto it. Gently release the belt and idler pulley. Check to see if it stayed in position.
Carefully replace the support ring and install the four screws holding it in position. Slowly rotate the drum counter-clockwise about two full turns to better align the belt on the drum before restarting the machine.

Good luck!
