Question:

I’m trying to get the top opened so I can replace my broken drum belt but I can’t get inside. Am I not doing this correctly? Any tips?

Carrie
Answer:

Hi Carrie, instead of removing the top you can remove the front panel, there should be 2 screws in the bottom. Then you can remove the front bulk head from the dryer. From there you should be able to access the belt and replace it. Best of luck with this repair!

Question:

I just received my new drum belt and have started working on the installation. I managed to get inside and remove the damaged part but I can’t figure out how to get the belt around the drum. What haven’t I taken out yet that would make this easier? Am I doing this wrong?

Meghan
Answer:

Hi Meghan, you will need to remove the tumbler front 33001107 before you can replace the belt on your unit. I hope this helps!

Our dryer suddenly stopped working!

Suspecting that it was a broken belt, we disconnected everything and opened the dryer to find that the belt was lying in the bottom of the unit (found when we were vacuuming dust out of the unit. We searched on line and found your company, easily locating the part and helpful input from others on completing the repair. Based on 2 other narratives, we managed to order the part and receive it the next day, and replace it the following day. Our dryer is working better than ever!

Lint screen was torn and the dryer belt was broken

The belt was easy. I took the two screws off the bottom of the front panel. loosened the screws that held the front of the drum in place. Slipped the belt over the drum, fed it around the pulley from the rear access panel. DONE!! My parts arrived within two days. Everything went smooth. I'll be back for any and all future repair needs. THANKS!!

Belt was cracked and slipping

Aparently Maytag dryers are made to be worked on. All I had to do was remove the front of the dryer, slide the new belt over the drum and remove the old one. Then I removed the rear access cover at the motor and looped the belt around the tension pulley and the motor pulley. While it was apart I was able to clean the lint from the dryer exhaust ducting. All pulleys were also oiled.

Dryer eating belts

Disconnected power and vent. Laid dryer on it's back, removed two philips screws near base of dryer. Lifted and removed front, removed four hex-head bolts and freed wires to door-latch switch.
Pulled drum, pryed-off locking-clip on drum roller, replaced roller. New belt was a bugger, needed 4 hands, but girlfreind (whose dryer it is), plus illustration for belt was from rear of dryer which meant I had to reverse everything, no fun.

Bad rumble from dryer

I had disassembled more of the dryer than was actually necessary. I removed the housing retaining the blower wheel assembly (about 7 screws). Removed the compression clip with pliers and then the snap ring with snap ring pliers. The old blower wheel came off the motor D shaft easily. Replaced blower wheel and re-assembled in reverse order. The belt was dry and cracked so I replaced it as a precautionary measure. The belt is easily routed around the tensioner wheel when accessed through the rear access panel. Voila! No more rumble and about 3x more hot air discharged to the vent.

The blower wheel had stopped turning (the plastic had broken where it mounts to the motor shaft) the tumbler and motor belt was well worn and needed to be replaced, and I decided to replace the drum roller wheels because of the age of the dryer.

To start, I didn't know how to open the dryer cabinet, so I went online and typed in the model of my dryer and found your company. What a life saver, your videos are excellent! They showed me exactly what to do, what tools I needed and how to remove the old parts and reinstall the new ones. From start to finish, it was a great experience working with your company and I have already told a co-worker about PartSelect! I'm hooked! I will order from your company again, the next time one of my appliances is in need of repair.

Dryer was very noisy

I ordered the parts and followed the video tutorial. I also replaced the blower as well. It was easy to do and I saved myself probably over a hundred dollars. It is now nice and quiet! Thanks!

I heard a thumping noise as the belt may be fraying thinking that was the case I ordered the belt and two roller kits for the drum thinking this would fix the problem

DISCONNECT POWER CORD (BE SAFE)

removed two screw at the bottom of the front panel disconnect the wires from that cover and remove the front cover. then remove the four screws from drum support, filter screen. Then remove the drum support I chose to disconnect the wire as I came to them. The job could be done with out unplugging any wires but I find it easer to just unplug the wires and have the items out of the way. Slide drum out about five inches this will allow you to remove the old belt. then remove the drum and set it aside. remove snap ring from roller shaft remove roller and washers the new one comes with two fiber washer place one washer on shaft then roller and the other washer fasten it with snap ring repeat this with the other roller replace drum in the same way you removed it placing the belt on the motor first then place it over the drum carefully lift the drum in to place taking care that the belt is not twisted and in the right location. now for the noise I was trying to fix during disable I discovered that the noise was actually the blower wheel, this wheel has a flat side molded into it to fit on the shaft which has a flat side on the shaft my old blower wheel had rounded off and was slipping on the shaft purchased a new one and replaced it. This has corrected the problem and now it runs like new the job was easy and took about 2 hrs to complete total cost about $65.00. Any one could do this it is not all that hard. Where I live the service call would be $100.00 plus labor which would be $120.00. So by doing it myself I saved $220.00. If I can do it so can you.

Belt finally broke after over 10 years.

Followed directions on the package. As a senior citizen I guess it took a little longer than a younger man. As of today, the dryer is working like new.
