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!

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!

Belt broke...drum would not turn but there was heat.

Removed front cover.removed 4 screws holding drum in place. Cleaned out lint from everywhere. Placed new belt over drum looping it over idler arm & motor pulley. Pushed drum back ; rotated drum to see that belt was engaged. Put front drum bracket in place. Put front panel in place with 2 screws at the bottom. Tested motor & rotation of drum; then checked heat. All worked fine. Took 1 hr. but most time spent cleaning lint.

Dryer belt broke

My stack/washer dryer combo is 1994 vintage, so I discovered the hard way that the instructions on this site, on web videos and that came with the part miss a few points. Most notably, that there is no back panel to open to get to the motor easily to loop the belt around. Instead, after repeated failures to first loop around the drum and then thread around the motor spindle, I tried a different approach. It was just too hard from the front to hold everything in place and "feel" my way to thread it properly. So I tried doing the belt around the motor spindle and tensioner first, then getting the remaining big loop started around the drum, which I rolled to feed the rest of it around, eventually completing that. I then rolled to adjust the belt more toward the center of the drum. Once in the proper track I could tighten the drum in place. BTW, the electronics are not modular and easily unhooked and recooked up as in later models. Had to let connections lie open on washer top as I did the work. So in the process a soldered connection to dryer flame sensor (part # 63033770) fell off. Dryer would turn but not heat. Had to order that part and reconnect. Now all is good again. Clearly though, the days for my washer/dryer are numbered since fewer and fewer parts are available.

Making noise-needed a new belt.It was only 27 years old.

I removed the front cover and pulled the drum out. I removed the right drum roller and cleaned off the shoulder bolt and tested the roller. Next I put the drum back in place on the rollers and then put the new belt on. The hardest part is putting the belt on the motor pulley properly and making sure the belt is not twisted so that the smooth side of the belt is on the drum. Once I had the belt on the motor pulley correctly I was done. I put the front cover back on and tested it. It works great for a 27 year old Maytag De512.

Part access but easy solution!

Overall, the repair was pretty easy. I'm a 52 year old woman who has never done drier repair. I replaced both front glides, both drum support roller wheels, the idler pulley wheel and the tumbler and motor belt. Including vacuuming out the inside of dryer and washing down the inside and outside of dryer with cleaning wipes, the whole project took me 2 hours. (if done individually, time would have been 20-30 minutes). You must have correct tools, so I did have to purchase two tools that I didn't have. My only suggestion in replacing the idler pulley wheel and the tumbler/motor belt would be to take the small access panel off the back of the dryer for easier access to the parts.

The motor belt was broken, lint filter torn and light bulb burnt

After watching the short video on belt repair, I put the belt on and ran it through the idle wheel from the small opening on the back of the dryer. I made sure that the felt around the tumbler was not folded and that the tumbler was free to spin.I also thoroughly vacuumed the entire interior of the dryer and the lint filter channel

Dryer drum did not rotate dispite the heating & blower being functional

Watched the Parts Select video showing how to get access to and remove damaged belt, install the new belt, and clean the lint trap system. I found congealed lint balls obstructing the lint outflow duct which probably contributed to the belt failure. After reassembling the dryer parts per the video instructions, the dryer works fine and is drying the clothes more efficiently. The diagram on the instruction sheet that came with the belt showed the directional placement of the belt over the motor pulley, thru the belt guard, and over tension wheel. I was unable to accomplish this task using only the video instructions. After placing the belt on the drum and placing the drum into its rear slots, I went behind the dryer and made the belt placement visually being sure to keep the smooth side of the belt against the drum and free of kinks, I returned to the front of the dryer and completed the installation as instructed in the video. If a diagram of belt placement over the motor and tension pulley were included in the video, it would stand alone as a complete and easily understood instructional video.

Very loud rumbling noise during and after operation

My Maytag DE710 dryer (very old) had a very loud rumbling noise (loud to the point that I could hear it loud throughout the entire house) constantly during operation and when shutting off. I purchased the parts that I thought would correct the problem (drum roller support kit, roller shaft, tumbler belt.) I installed these parts but unfortunately it did not correct the problem. These parts did show some wear so I didn't mind having to replace them. After further investigation, I noticed that the blower wheel clamp had fallen off into the vent tray. I inspected the blower wheel and found that it had worn the inside passage where the shaft fits through to a round shape (should have a partial flat edge to hold securely on the shaft.) The wheel also had a lot of excess movement in it that allowed it to slide back and forth on the shaft. These 2 issues are what was causing the rumbling noises; although I wouldn't have thought so originally because the wheel is plastic. Before beginning, I was sure it was the drum rollers. Anyway, after replacing the roller wheel with a new one, the problem is 100% eliminated. The dryer runs whisper quiet, a pleasant change from the loud rumbling. The replacement was fairly simple overall after watching the help videos on the website. I expect to get a lot more years out of this dryer, despite it being very old already.

Dryer wouldn't tumble (rotate), broken drive belt

Unscrew two screws at the bottom of the front panel. Grip the front panel by the bottom and swing it up so it comes off. Leave the wires attached and place it out of the way to the left. Notice how and where those wires come out of the dryer (don't be like me).

Then remove the top by unscrewing two bolts near the front, one on each side. The top should now come loose and you can push it backwards and out of the way. You can now see the drum and the drive belt.

To figure out the problem, I took it this far and saw that the belt was broken.

Now take off the bit that holds the drum in place from the front. There are two sheet metal screws on either side. Undo them and lift the front bit off and out the way.

The instructions that come with the belt are terribly written but they contain nuggets of truth. I departed from their instructions by removing the drum completely. It slides out easily.

With the drum out the way, slip the new belt round the drive shaft and idler wheel, making sure it's the right way round. The smooth side of the belt touches the drum while the rough side is against the drive wheel.

Now come the tricky part. Slide the drum back until it is close enough to the belt, then slip the belt round the drum. There are two depressions in the drum. The back end is slightly smaller than the main part of the drum and there's a 1" by 1" groove a couple of inches forward from the back of the drum. The belt should end up a couple of inches forward from that groove (you'll see the marks from where it was before) but for now, place it in the groove - it's easier that way. WHen you pull on the belt, the idler wheel moves enough to manhandle the belt round the drum. Now manhandle the drum back in position, attop the two free wheels it rolls on.

Reassembly is the opposite of disassemble. :-)

Now comes the other tricky part. If there are two of you, have one person hold the drum in place while the other person attaches the front bit that holds the drum from the front. I was on my own so I tilted the dryer back so I got a gravity assist, then put the front bit back on. After you've noticed that the wires going to the dryer door are all messed up, remove the front bit and do it again but this time attaching the wire where they were before.

Now reattach the top, screwing in the two screws that hold it down.

To reattach the front panel, hold it horizontally and push it in so the two clips on the top engage whatever they're supposed to engage, then let the front panel rotate to the vertical. Two screws at the bottom hold it in place and, as we say in my country, Bob's your uncle.
