Go to this website and they have pictures of the route of the belt.
http://www.applianceaid.com/images/belt-config.JPG

If you hear a loud bang while your dryer is working, and you notice that the
drum has stopped turning, chances are the drivebelt has snapped.
Fortunately, replacing the belt is a fairly straightforward operation that
can be handled with a few simple tools.
First, unplug the dryer. Lift the lint-screen cover and pull out the lint screen
If your dryer has a lint screen on the inside of the door, skip this step.
Then remove the two screws that are under the cover. To unlatch the dryer top,
insert a thin-blade putty knife between the top and front panel,
about 2 1/2 in. in from one corner. Push in on the knife to release the locking
clip, lift the corner, then release the clip on the other side. Swing the top
up and lean it against the wall.
Next, move to the lower toe panel. Slip the putty knife between the lower panel
and the door panel at one side and twist the knife to release the clip
Then release the opposite clip and lift the panel up and off the hinge springs.
To support the dryer drum while the belt is being replaced, place scrap wood
under the front of the drum.
Loosen the two screws at each side of the bottom of the front panel.
Move to the top of the panel and remove the screws from the inside of the
cabinet that hold the front panel to the sides.
Slide the old belt off the drum.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installing the belt
Lean the front panel out slightly and allow the drum to rest on the scrap wood
support. Drop the new dryer belt between the front panel and the drum, and
loop it over the drum. Then, lift the drum slightly while pushing the front
panel back into position.
Replace the screws at the top inside of the front panel, tighten the lower panel
screws and remove the scrap wood from under the drum. Check to make sure that
the rear drum seal fits properly over the lip on the rear bulkhead.
Position the new belt where the old belt was, with the grooved side of the belt
facing down.
Now, move to the motor area and pull out the old belt. To route the new belt
around the idler and drive pulley, first pass the entire belt, doubled up,
under the idler pulley. Then, push the idler belt toward the motor, slip the
belt around the motor pulley and release the tension on the idler pulley.

Open the dryer door and rotate the drum counterclockwise a few times to make
sure the belt is tracking properly. Lower the top and press down at each
corner to engage the clips. Lift the lint-screen cover, replace the two screws
and reinstall the lint screen. Finally, secure the lower front panel and turn
on the dryer for a test.

SOURCE: how to remove lint tray receiver: maytag dryer model#pye2300ayw

Unplug first with a straight blade screwdriver, pry up on the top of the dryer where the front wall of the dryer and the top meet. there are 2 screws 1 on each side inside the dryer where the sides and front meet, remove them and unhook the wires from the door switch. the whole front will now pull out and up, now open the door remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the door opening and the whole lint tray will pull out. sounds like a lot but only takes about 5 minutes.

SOURCE: Belt installation is too loose

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
If the belt is loose it is most likely stretched / worn and should be replaced:

The idler (item5) of this drawing:

See routing here: http://www.repair-help.com/kb/index.php?article=105

The drive belt is item 5 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=695560#d695560

The top must be opened and the front panel removed to install the belt.
Here is a link to step by step "how to" instructions.
http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_7277908_do-belt-maytag-pye2300ayw-dryer_.html

Make sure to inspect the rear drum rollers while you have the dryer open. Item 7 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=695560#d695560
Flat drum rollers or hard to turn rollers will cause the new belt to fail prematurely.

Additionally if the front or rear drum seals are worn it can cause the belt to be loose. These are glued on with high temp adhesive.
The front seal is item 10 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=28505910#d28505910

The rear seal is item 2 this link:

High temp adhesive: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4284239

By replacing the items above your dryer will operate like new again and extend the life of your dryer by many years.

go here and you can see the parts in your dryer,if the model isn't a maytag pye2300ay then just put your model number in there and it will show you,kenmore doesn't make anything,you go by the model number if it starts with 110. it's a whirlpool,if say 417. it's frigidaire made but the maytag model you sent has rollers and i would say if you have a kenmore 80 series it has rollers,you can buy a kit that comes with the rollers,belt and belt pulley

The barrel doesn't turn


This dryer is belt driven. You did not mention if the motor was running or not but, I am going to assume that the motor is in fact running and the drum is not turning. There is not a belt safety switch on this dryer so if the belt breaks the motor will run but the drum will not turn.

Dryer stopped running with 30 minutes left and will not restart. Maytag Performa PYE2300AYW


Reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Allow the motor to cool, It has over temperature protection that will shut down the motor.

The belt that turns the drum may have broken. I am not sure about this model, but most dryers have a limit switch on the base of the dryer next to the motor that shuts down the dryer when the belt brakes.

Maytag dryer model#PYE2300AYW turns on but makes loud noise when tumbling. whats wrong with it?


If it is a metallic noise, it can either be a pulley with bad bearings, or possibly the rear drum support/ bearing. If squeeling noise, possile belt. I would open the unit and check it out. Keep in mind that, in many cases, the repair can be more than buying a new unit. I bought a good, new dryer from Lowes for around $200. It would be hard to get a repair guy to come out and do the repair for that amount. Choose wisely grasshopper.
