    I stated if you needed more assistance to respond here and I could help you. A low rating without any input from you does not get your dryer fixed. I will help you if you just ask. At the momwnet I can only assume that you still have not got your dryer belt installed or had to call someone to install it. A forum such as this does not work well without good communication. Again if you need help just ask and will gladly help you. I just need to know what it is that you need help with.

Maytag Dryer Belt Diagrams and Replacement

Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.

For all single belt models use this diagram:

Belt came off. not broken but when i went to replace its about 4 inches to big, (slack in belt) the tension spring is not tight is there a certian route i should go with the belt,

Yes there is. The flat side should go against the drum and the tension spring pulley. The ribbed side should go against the motor pulley. The tension arm is probably out of position. You'll have to try it in different positions. Look at this diagram. It don't show how it goes but it may help.

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.

Belt too loose

Are you sure you have the belt routed correctly? You can verify by going to and clicking on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page is a link entitled "Dryer Belt Diagrams" under the "Special Features" section. You will need to view diagram E for Maytag. NOTE: There is a tension spring on your idler. Make sure the tension spring has not come loose or fallen off. I hope this helps you. If you have questions, please let me know.

Maytag dryer

Make sure the belt is properly routed. Often, there is a tensioner that 'adjusts' the belt. It is a wheel that is on a pivot with a spring attached to a fixed point. It may be located anywhere around the drum but is likely near the motor frame. Now, with access to the motor shaft, start the belt over the shaft in the direction of motor spin as much as you can. Try to turn by hand or grab the belt and pull along. ...if it does not work..put the belt over the motor pulley after pulling back on the tensioner. You can use a long screwdriver as a lever. No tensioner? There will be a method of adjusting the placement of the motor. Make sure the motor shaft comes out square to the belt.
