Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Flathead screwdriver Phillips screwdriver Assistant
  1. Step 1 Look up your specific model number and buy a replacement belt from a Maytag dealer or a third-party supplier of replacement appliance parts.
  2. Step 2 Unplug the dryer and remove the exhaust vent tube from the back.
  3. Step 3 Pull out the lint screen. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws around the lint screen housing.
  4. Step 4 Slide the blade of a flat screwdriver underneath the top panel at one of the front corners of the machine. Pry the top panel up slowly, being careful to not nick or scratch the finish. You should hear a snap when you've lifted the panel high enough; that noise is just the latch releasing.
  5. Step 5 Repeat Step 4 on the other front corner of the machine and then lift the hinged lid up.
  6. Step 6 Firmly grasp the top edge of the front panel of the dryer. Wiggle it to the front and back slightly as you lift upward, and the panel should come loose from the latches holding it in place.
  7. Step 7 Slide the front panel forward while your assistant supports the inner drum. Pull the front panel completely off of the machine.
  8. Step 8 Reach underneath the drum and pull out the broken belt.
  9. Step 9 Slip the replacement belt around the drum while your assistant continues to support the front of the drum. Turn the belt so the grooved side fits into the visible grooves around the circumference of the drum.
  10. Step 10 Get on the floor again and locate the motor underneath the drum. You will see two round pulleys; the larger one is the motor pulley and the smaller one is the idler pulley. Grab a section of the slackened belt, fold it in half and push the loop underneath the idler pulley. Wrap the loop around the motor pulley.
  11. Step 11 Push the idler pulley to the side, away from the motor. The grooves on the pulley should fit just right with the belt, and moving the pulley over should create tension in the belt all the way around the drum.
  12. Step 12 Slide the front panel back up against the machine, working with your assistant to fit the front of the drum into place. When the drum is secured to the front panel, slide the panel straight down into place. You may hear or feel it lock into place when you've pushed down far enough.
  13. Step 13 Lower the top panel and push it down until it snaps into place. Replace the screws surrounding the lint screen housing and put the lint screen back.
  14. Step 14 Reattach the exhaust vent tube and the electrical plug.

The dryer squeels when operating and I put some belt grip on the belt. It helped for a little while but now it's worse than ever. The belt feels pretty snug. ???


This could be a few things. The idler pulley or drum rollers are the likely problem. Both are easy to check and replace. The belt should be replaced at the same time. Here is a couple links that should help

When belt breaks is there an automatic shut of switch because the dryer will not run?


Yes on MOST dryers there is a belt safety switch. It is there to prevent you from using the dryer with a broken belt. (i.e heat but does not tumble) When the belt breaks the idler pulley arm drops down and trips the safety switch.

If you need help with parts, and replacement belt procurement / owner replacement of the belt, we need your model number please so we can pass you the correct information.
