Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
If the belt is loose it is most likely stretched / worn and should be replaced:

The idler (item5) of this drawing:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=630165#d630165

See routing here: http://www.repair-help.com/kb/index.php?article=105

The drive belt is item 5 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=695560#d695560

The top must be opened and the front panel removed to install the belt.
Here is a link to step by step "how to" instructions.
http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_7277908_do-belt-maytag-pye2300ayw-dryer_.html

Make sure to inspect the rear drum rollers while you have the dryer open. Item 7 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=695560#d695560
Flat drum rollers or hard to turn rollers will cause the new belt to fail prematurely.

Additionally if the front or rear drum seals are worn it can cause the belt to be loose. These are glued on with high temp adhesive.
The front seal is item 10 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=28505910#d28505910

The rear seal is item 2 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=28505913#d28505913

High temp adhesive: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4284239

By replacing the items above your dryer will operate like new again and extend the life of your dryer by many years.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

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

This info should be located behind the control panel of your dryer. If not, someone must have removed, try asking again if it's gone.

Maytag electric dryer:attached belt as per directions,but is still loose,the pulley seems to not give enough tension


You can verify your belt installation by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page, then locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under Special Features. Refer to Diagram E under the Maytag heading. If you say you have the belt installed correctly, make sure the tension spring is still installed. I hope this helps you.
