Remove the front panel. you may need to remove a kick panel below the front panel. the top panel connects to the front panel by some plastic push in retainers (you can loosen them with a screwdriver) You need to prop the top panel up. the belt goes over the top of the drum down to a drive wheel that is located at the bottom of the dryer.

Replace belt on maytag dryer lde8824ace


If it is a model where the belt goes around the drum rather than a separate pulley the drier must be dismantled far enough to allow the belt to be freed from the drum.
Belts need to be replaced so infrequently manufacturers make little provision for in-service replacement and generally the drier must be taken back to the stage in production where the belt was originally fitted.

This can be a rather extensive process with many models and in the absence of dedicated model information we often must resort to simply keep removing screws until the thing falls apart. By the time a belt needs replacing the drum bearings and/or seals are often generally in need of attention in addition that the extra work, though inconvenient and dispiriting, is rarely wasted.

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.

Just respond here and someone will help you.

Belt slipping / takes a minute to start tumbling


Before replacing belt check the space between the drum and the front AND rear seals with your fingers for foreign objects caught there. This may make the drum too tight to turn. Belt is usually broken before it needs replacing.

Also check idler pulley next to motor and motor itself with belt off both pulleys making sure they both turn freely. I think something is binding. Check all those BEFORE replacing belt.

Disconnect plug before opening unit.
