If belt is not broken, then the tensioner is not routed properly. Generally belt comes around drum, then around tensioner pulley then on motor pulley. Tensioner is spring loaded, so you need to pull up on tensioner to get belt around motor. Good luck.

Just remove the screws around the vent tube in the back and you can see the belt tensioner laying there on the floor of the dryer.
Most likely someone turned the drum the wrong direction and the belt came off.
The belt goes through the opening in the tensioner and under the idler pulley and then onto the motor drive pulley. Make sure to have the tensioner mounted into the floor first.
It just slides over into a slot and then over to the other side as tension is put on it.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE OUTER BAND TO HOLD ON THE DOOR BOOT/SEAL. WHAT I HAVE SEEN IS THAT AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHES WAS NOT ALL THE WAY INTO THE WASHER AND IT WAS STARTED, PULLING THE DOOR BOOT INTO THE WASHER. THE ONLY OTHER THING I HAVE NOTICED WITH THIS NEW BREED OF SUPER CAPACITY WASHERS IS THAT THEY LIKE BIGGER LOADS TO HELP BALANCE THEMSELVES. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE THAT IT WAS SO SEVERLY OUT OF BALANCE THAT IT PULLED THE BOOT INTO THE TUB AS THE MAYTAGS OF THAT MODEL LINE WERE KNOWN TO NOT BE THE MOST SENSITIVE TO OUT OF BALANCE CONDITIONS. THERE IS A CONTROL BOARD KIT THAT COMES WITH A MOTION SENSOR NOW FOR THEM AS AN UPGRADE.

Dryer can't turn on. Start button just buzzes.


replace the "Broken-Belt" switch by the drum motor,when the belt breaks it shuts off the heating element so as not to burn the clothes because the drum can't turn to produce air flow to dry the clothes as they tumble,when you replace the belt it will make the switch close the circuit again and it will start

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.

If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor, or belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and screws holding the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

I have a maytag neptune dryer and the drum is loose how do i tighten it?


Why do you say that the drum is loose? Are you able to wobble it by hand? If so, that is evidence of a bad roller that the drum sits on.

If the drum doesn't turn as fast as it did, that is probably a loose belt, which would indicate that the belt tensioner is not working or belt has jumped the tensioner.

Dryer drum is scraping something and black deposits are turning up on our clothes


Well there are two parts to the drum, there is the bearing in the back and the felt pads in the front which the drum rides on. There is also a belt, but if something is scraping it would not be that. Is sounds as though the cover on the felts has worn off and your getting felt material on your clothes, so those need to be replaced. You need to get the proper felts for your dryer than you need to look for any screws on your dryer casing that will allow you to remove the casing and get to the drum, as the pads are underneath the drum. (Note: Inside the door there may be screws on the underside of the upper deck, and the deck should tilt backward on hinges)

My maytag neptune dryer makes a buzzing sound but does not turn, then later in the day, it will start just fine and run, until later in the night and then it won't . does this mean I have a loose belt?


its either a loose belt, (very easy to sort out as most tumble dryers use the motor on a pivot to tension the belt.)

if its not a loose belt its most likely to be the carbon brushes inside the motor that have worn down and are now making poor contact with the motor itself.

if your not confident to have ago at fixting these yourself, most repair shops should be able to-do this for you in 10 - 20 mins tops and it should not cost a fortune either.

Dryer won't turn


The problem is likely a slipping dryer belt. The belt tensioner is not working or the belt needs replacing.
