The belt is broke on our dryer. We have looked in the manuals online and there is nothing about changing the belts. Can someone help us? Thanks!

This might be best handled by a technician as it is not a simple task for the untrained servicer. The belt should come with written instructions on replacement procedures if you desire to attempt it. We are factory trained to replace the belt entirely from the front, by feel only, as the idler pulley can't be seen. If you have a replacement belt but no instructions and wish to pursue this yourself, maybe our experts may be able to help you in our on line chat service, who can talk you through it, live. There is fee for this service but it is much cheaper than paying for a house call.

Are you sure that you hooked the belt up correctly, as it sounds like you may have missed the tensioner pulley. As this will tighten the belt around the middle of the drum

Dryer will not dry - drum will not turn


Just happened to mine also. The problem was that the Idler Pulley came loose from the drive belt. There is a switch on the idler pulley so that if there is no tension on it, the motor will not start and you will have the symptoms you describe. To reattach the Idler Pulley, remove the back plate surrounding the dryer exhaust. This will give you access to the Pulley. If the belt broke (unlikely with a new dryer such as yours), the fix is more involved. This dryer is the same as the Maytag MDE6700 - you can do a search for a service manual for that model and you can see the details. Hope this helps.

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.
