Remove 2 screws from front panel near floor,then swing panel upward toward you and remove,then remove drum support screws around the front door and then you can slip belt around drum and reverse assembly,its very tight getting the belt around the idler and motor pulleys,but its possible going in around the blower case with both hands one on each side

Replace belts on dryer?


I presume you are in the US
Maytag produce their machines under various names.
Parts can be obtained from
http://www.maytagpartsonline.com/
On most washing machines and dryers you take the back panel off.
loosen the motor retainers and remove the old belt.
Fit the new belt and adjust the tension with the motor retainers and retighten. You normally have about 1/2 inch slack in middle of belt.
Good luck

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.

Your drive belt is old and has glazed. It will likely break soon. Replace it. Make sure the belt contact area is clean and free of any kind of dirt or grease.
