Question about Maytag Dryers

3 Answers

Maytag dryer model # PVE 2300 AYN The dryer heats up, but does not spin. I assume it is the belt. How do I get to the belt? I see 3 star shaped screws at the bottom of either side, as well as numerous screws on the back. What is the procedure in getting to the drum/belt? Thanks, Derrick Hamrick, unauthurized repairman!

Usually , after you remove the back panel you can see the belt yourself, running from the motor to the basket gear.

Dryer won't spin


If you have kids and they over fill the dryer it strains all systems including the heater because it cannot get rid of excess heat. Solution*** Possibly needs a new belt

My dryer flew off of a dolly when loading it on a trailer to move it. It smells like rubber is burning when I turn the dryer on. It was working fine until we moved the dryer. Could it be the belt is loose?


If the dryer fell some distance, the drum is probably out of alignment.

If the drum is not spinning at all, something has jammed the drum and the belt is being overheated by the motor pulley.

If the drum is spinning and there is a rubber smell, the drum has been knocked off of its rollers and/or glides.

In either case, the dryer needs to be opened. Click the link below:

Dryer quit spinning.


If the blower is working, then it's most likely the belt, a belt pulley or a tensioner spring.
Open the dryer, it will power off, and then spin the drum by hand. If it moves with little resistance, it's your belt.

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.

Dryer Drum Won't Spin


Reach inside and grab ahold of the baffle. Try to spin the drum, it should have resistance. If it spins freely you have a broken belt. Hope that helps. Dave ww.washermd.com

Maytag dryer model pve


I could not find the moder number in any maytag list, all I can do is posting general guidelines, like this one here:
online guide Clik here.
Generally to remove a belt in an electric maytag dryer you unscrew thescrews at the base of the front side of of the machine to remove thefront panel.
Then the topc omes up.
Thenyou remove the rear access panel and remove the tension on the belt. Getthe drum out, clean the dryer, eventually oil wheels and rollers, and re install the drum ensuring the belt ison right side and not twisted.
