I figured this one out...there are two pairs slots...the tab of the idler pulley goes in the right slot near the motor and the idler pulley goes off to the left.

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: Maytag model PYE2300AYW won't do anything at all

Hi, Did you check the safety fuse on the right side of the heater housing? Little fuse with two white wires going to it?
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

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

Most dryers are tension idler pulley directed but must first go around the grooved pulley on the motor shaft. make sure the idler goes on the smooth side of the belt and the grooved side of the belt is in the grooves on the motor shaft.

Re~attaching spring on Maytag Dryer PYE2300AYW While replacing the belt the spring slipped off and I don't know where to attach it to, one end is on the idler, where does the other end go?


Hi,
If I am not mistaken, your spring called a Idler spring should mount to the motor mount and the other end to the idler arm. But if you do not remove the drum from the dryer it will be hard to see how to re-install the spring. Remove the drum to make your task easier for your self.

Good Luck

How do I replace the dryer belt on a maytag dryer model #pye2300ayw. How do you connect to the pulley and get the belt around the drum?


lift the hood by pushing in clip on either side. remove two screw at top inside to remove front. unplug first. thats as far as we go there. remove belt out of dryer. take new belt and put on drum groove side down, get it uniform around drum. putting belt on pulley might be easier to do from behind for you. two screws to remove small access panel.take belt under pulley and over and around motor pulley. turn drum slowiy to make sure belt is not twisted. this belt can only go on a couple ways and one is obviously wrong. good luck.
