Replace belt on maytag dryer lde8824ace


If it is a model where the belt goes around the drum rather than a separate pulley the drier must be dismantled far enough to allow the belt to be freed from the drum.
Belts need to be replaced so infrequently manufacturers make little provision for in-service replacement and generally the drier must be taken back to the stage in production where the belt was originally fitted.

This can be a rather extensive process with many models and in the absence of dedicated model information we often must resort to simply keep removing screws until the thing falls apart. By the time a belt needs replacing the drum bearings and/or seals are often generally in need of attention in addition that the extra work, though inconvenient and dispiriting, is rarely wasted.

I HAVE A MAGTAG PPTS20 HOW DO I DO THE BELT


If you are talking about replacing the belt wit a new one.
YOU NEED TO FIRST UNPLUG THE DRYER!
This is a difficult procedure, you have to take the dryer apart, this includes removing the drum. after you remove the drum, place the belt around the drum, there will be a place worn where the old belt was, with the belt on the drum put back in the dryer, place the belt on the motor pulley with the tension pulley pushing on the belt. Make sure to get the felt around the drum in the back. Replace the parts you removed. plug back in and see if runs ok.
This is very difficult and is why we get $95 + parts
Thank You

Maytag dryer clothes gray soot around the drum and door


Sounds like drum belt is out of alignment and rubbing. Check the rotation/alignment with pulleys and drum. If belt is worn replace it. Hope this helps.

Maytag bravos dryer belt needs to be replaced


Check in the back and see if the belt has a wide span on it. If it does, it doesn't only go around the fan pulley but also the drum (Which is usually the case). THis being the case you need to look for and screws you can find on the dryer outer casing because you will need to remove the outer casing to get to the drum. If you look for screw on the upper part just inside the door many times the upper deck is on hinges and will tilt backward so you can view the top of the drum with the belt on it. Remember how it came apart; it goes back together in reverse manner. Once you usually find the belt tension pulley through the back of the dryer compartment, let the tension off the pulley and slide the belt off of it. Once you get the belt off put it back on just like the old one.

How do I replace the dryer belt on a maytag dryer model #pye2300ayw. How do you connect to the pulley and get the belt around the drum?


lift the hood by pushing in clip on either side. remove two screw at top inside to remove front. unplug first. thats as far as we go there. remove belt out of dryer. take new belt and put on drum groove side down, get it uniform around drum. putting belt on pulley might be easier to do from behind for you. two screws to remove small access panel.take belt under pulley and over and around motor pulley. turn drum slowiy to make sure belt is not twisted. this belt can only go on a couple ways and one is obviously wrong. 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.
