ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
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.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. 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 screws that hold the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt 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.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

Timeing belt broke have replaced now not fireing


You either have the belt 180 degrees off. So you have to take belt off and turn crank only (slowly) around once to its mark again, but first you need to go to a website that lists motors that are called "interference fit" engines. (Think Gates belt co. has a list) If your motor is an interference fit then when belt broke the motor is trashed. Interference fit means that pistons can hit valves if the belt breaks. That is why they tell you to replace the timing belt before too long. Also if motor is interference fit when you try and turn crank go slow because you may bump into valve.

Timing belt broke is this a low tolorance enging


A 1991 GEO is worth scraping if this is your problem
A water pump is also needed to replace with the belt
It is a rule of thumb for the belt drives the pump as well
Think about selling it to a local kid as his first car that he has to fool with. The monet to fix it is really not worth investing into it
The fuel pump for these cost more than the worth of this car now

I think belt broke need to replace


Go to maytag.com then service and parts then use and care manuals then model no. hopefully you can find info. there if not call customer care 800 number. Most times you have to remove the top of dryer then the front to get to the belt. You will have to locate what type fasteners it uses some use a snap lock type fastener others use screws.

I dont think you broke the belt, I think it may have just come off the belt tensioner. Take the bottom of the back panel off and I think you will see it hanging in there. Just put er back on.
