Question about Maytag Dryers
Remember, the belt DOES NOT sit in the groove of the drum but about an inch from it in the direction of the front.
Also, the belt sits on the drum with the grooves facing away from the drum, not on the drum, a common mistake. If you have a new Genuine Maytag belt then there is a diagram of how the belt fits onto the tension pulley.

To fit the new belt, you will need the idler pulley (tensioner)...
The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, pull it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).
If you still need help, I will try to provide you with a diagram shortly.
