Belt came off. not broken but when i went to replace its about 4 inches to big, (slack in belt) the tension spring is not tight is there a certian route i should go with the belt,

Yes there is. The flat side should go against the drum and the tension spring pulley. The ribbed side should go against the motor pulley. The tension arm is probably out of position. You'll have to try it in different positions. Look at this diagram. It don't show how it goes but it may help.

Replace dryer belt

Pull the front panel off, remove the top screws and tilt top back. Rout the new belt around drum at the old wear spot with the grooved side against the drum. Next remove the back access door and rout the belt around the idler pulley and motor pulley. There is only one way to do this and get proper tension on the belt.
Also, when you order the belt, ask if it has a belt routing diagram on the belt package.

Belt too loose

Are you sure you have the belt routed correctly? You can verify by going to and clicking on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page is a link entitled "Dryer Belt Diagrams" under the "Special Features" section. You will need to view diagram E for Maytag. NOTE: There is a tension spring on your idler. Make sure the tension spring has not come loose or fallen off. I hope this helps you. If you have questions, please let me know.

How to instal new belt.

Remove the back panel, there you will find a tensioner, that will release the pulley.

Undo the belt routing and install the new one.
