Question about Dryers
I got your message about removing the back panel, but there is no back panel. There are many screws, but the back of the dryer appears to be made into a shell that forms the sides and front.
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.

To change the belt you'll need to remove the top paenl and then remove the drum and you would be able to see the belt. You can disassemble it by the following procedure--
Drum Removal / Roller / Glide Access--
Top Cover / Door Switch / Front Panel /Gasket Removal-
1. Disconnect power supply to unit.
2. Use a plastic putty knife to depress the locking clip between the Top Cover and Front Panel.
3. Disconnect wiring from the Door Switch.
4. Depress the locking tabs on switch side and remove through the front.
5. Remove two screws, 1 each side, from the back flange of the Front Panel.
6. Tip Front Panel back and remove. Rotate Front Panel to the back side and remove gasket.
Hope this helps...
