First off, I ordered the part around 1 pm, paid regular shipping, and it was here the very next day! As for the repair, maybe the easiest fix I have done. Make sure the dryer is unplugged, pop the top up and remove the front of the dryer. Take out the pulley (careful it can snap ya) then remove the drum. The snap rings around the motor can be tricky, so be sure to watch the video sent to you from PartSelect. With a couple of wrenches, loosen the motor from the blower and remove. Put new one in and put back together. Piece of cake. Took me about 20-25 mins. This is the best place I've ordered from and will continue to get my supplies here. Good Luck!

Thanks I hope the was useful.

After looking at your video, my brother and I put the belt back on, placed the front and back on and that was it. It required two of us but it went well and the machine is working fine. Thank you.

took top off,took back off,took lower panel off,removed old motor without taking drum out,got the part # off old motor,looked it up on line then i found the video on how to do the repair...lol. The repair went well and the instructions that came with the new motor were very good as my motor had the old style switch and needed to be rewired. I did go one step further as long as i had it that far apart,I took the duct work apart on the back of the dryer for the vent and I was very glad I did,it had 25 years of lint and all sorts of other thing in it.I cleaned and lubed all other moving parts and reassembled,works and sounds like new !

The belt broke at the worse possible time, with a washer full of wet clothing. Watched one of your fine repair videos, did exactly as it said and in less than 15 minutes I had the new belt on and the laundry continued as if nothing ever happened. Thank you for your help and instruction. I will continue to shop your site for all me maintenance and parts needs. Thanks again!

Broken Belt

  • Customer: Kent from Tallahassee FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

This was the first time that I'd had a dryer apart, so naturally I wound up taking many more things apart than I needed. After finally removing the front panel, I could see that the old belt had broken and was wrapped around the motor shaft, and that the tensioner was lying loose. Installing the new belt was a snap. Simply put it on the lines on the drum and insert into the pulley. The only challenge was figuring out exactly how the tensioner fit. The only way that it could go, and do its job, meant putting a lot of pressure on the spring. Once I got past that hesitation, it was a breeze.

Broken drum belt

  • Customer: Jay from Lake Ariel PA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
After watching the repair video that was linked in the part delivery confirmation email, the repair went really easy. I just used the putty knife to pop the lid, then removed two sheet metal screws holding the front panel with the nut driver. I disconnected the two wires from the door switch. The front panel slid right up and out. The old belt was broken and lying at the bottom of the dryer. I ran the new belt around the drum, and around the tensioner and drive pulley. This was not as difficult as I imagined it would be. I spun the drum one revolution to make sure the belt was riding right. Before I put the front panel back on I took the opportunity to clean the lint out of the blower. I then just reversed the front panel removal process and snapped the lid back down. This repair took maybe 10 minutes. If I had to do it again I could probably do it in 5. It's just that easy. The dryer works perfectly now.

Under heavy loads, dryer would turn off

Looked up on-line for tips, found computer animated video. It was easy as it looked, took longer to take dryer apart (not long). Other note on problem; neighbor who works on washer/dryers said that the motor was probably going. replaced belt anyway because I already purchased it before we spoken. Throwing caution to the wind!!

Belt had broken

I watched the online video three times. This was extremely useful. I just did what it showed. I doubt I could have fixed it without the video. This has got to be the best feature of the internet. I didn't have the exact model number, but the belt fit. I was surprised at how close the tensioning wheel was to the motor. Perhaps the belt will stretch with age and use.

Dryer Belt broke after about 10 years of use

We noticed the drum wasn't spinning, but the heat was turning on. About 3 years ago the heat was broken and it turned out that there was a little thermal fuse in there that needed swapped out, that was easy too fix too. Anyway, I looked up on youtube how to change out dryer belts on maytag units and it looked pretty straight forward. The model they showed was easier to access than my model, but I was able to still figure it out. Just pop off the top panel (they used a putty knife at the two clip points on the front, but I just yanked it up with a little force and it popped right up). Then unscrew the two little screws holding the front panel on, then pull off the front panel completely. This exposes the drum. The example on youtube showed easy front access to the belt assembly, but in my model, there was a stand for the drum as well as the drum motor in the way. So I just pulled the whole drum out the front most of the way, then I went behind the drum where I had exposed the pully/motor shaft assembly and then fed in the new belt into belt tension assembly that connects to the motor. While keeping it taught so the ribs of the belt would stay on the motor head (I had my wife hold it taught) I pushed the drum back toward the hanging belt and then worked the edges of the belt around the drum until it once again was completely around the drum. Then I slowly pushed the drum all the way back into place while continually working the belt back into place as I went. I then manually rolled the drum around a few times to ensure it was rolling correctly and that the belt was indeed in the right place. After a few good spins without it changing position, I reassembled the unit. It was very painless and took about 15-20 minutes in all. Works just fine again.

I Removed the rear panel. Then I used the instructions online to locate and test various parts and determined what was defective. I order the parts online and received them the next day. It took less than 30 minutes to do the repairs. The dryer works great.I will be using partselect.com in the future and would recommend them to anyone who is having problems with their appliance.
