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!

Blower wheel assembly worn causing a noise at startup and sometimes while running

I removed the screws to the front panel which allowed access to the inside. There were four screws that held the drum in place. I removed the drum to have more working room. Once inside, I removed the screws, clamp and clips that held the blower wheel assembly in place. After removal, I replaced the old blower with the new one and installed the new belt. I reassembled everything and the dryer runs like a new one. Very easy job that saved me lots of money. Also, the diagrams on your site were very helpful.

Broken drive belt

Remove the two screws under the door, lifted front panel outward and pulled it free at the top, removed the lint trap assembly ( 4 screws). I pulled the entire dryer drum out and cleaned out the inside o fhte dryer cabinet. Gettting the belt to track correctly took a little fiddling- I had to take the small panel off the back to access the motor pulley to feel the belt and get it set on the drum in the correct spot.

Overall, installing a new belt was fairly easy.

Noisy when in use - cracken and broken belt

Well lots of other people here described the process and thats basically what I did.
Unscrewed the front of the dryer and behold the mountains of filth, lost toys, and spare change. Unplugged the dryer. Did some basic cleaning but wanted to get to the matter at hand.
Unscrewed the lint trap - realized I did not need to and put it back on. Unscrewed the 4 screws holding the drum and pulled the front off.
I just cut the old belt off. It was cracked and about to go. Put the new belt on and snaked it back into place. Opened up the back hatch and got it into place via the diagram. (It was spot on)
Put it all back together, plugged it in and started it up.
Hmmmm.. a odd rubbing noise.
Took the front off and looked around. Things looked fine. Checked the belt and started making sure it was working right.

NOTE!!!!!!! It is plugged in at this time you idiot.

Ok, so im trying to get the belt in the right spot and checking how the drum turns when i pull the belt. Well my arm touches the contacts for the dryer element and shocks me. Natural reaction is to yank my hand out as fast as I can. In doing so I punch a nice big gash into my palm. So laying on the floor, shocked, bleating, and its a flithy cut with lint in it.
Yeah me!!

After stopping the bleeding and cleaning it with peroxide I got back to it the next day.

I had the belt IN the grove of the drum. I messed around and moved it OUT of the grove. Worked perfect. While it was in the grove there was not enough tension. Moving it to the main drum tightened and had it go perfectly.

Snapped tumbler belt

Given the age of my dryer, the repair wasn't exactly as proposed on the belt's packaging, but it provided a great drawing of how the belt should contact the motor drive, pulley wheel and drum at the same time. First, I took off the front cover of the dryer with a nut driver. I discovered that I had to put the belt around the drum first and then use my arms to hold the drum up as my hands simultaneously pulled the motor pulley tight and threaded the belt around the motor drive and pulley wheel. After not quite slipping the belt on correctly the first time, I was able to very easily do it on a second try. Had I gotten the belt on correctly the first time, repair would have taken ten minutes. Runs great!!

Loud thumping noise while dryer was on

Unplugged dryer. Removed two screws and removed front of dryer disconnecting the wires from the front. Removed 4 screws and blue wire allowing the me to take the shroud off. Removed blower fan cover by taking out the screws and pulling down. Used pliers to take off clamp on blower fan and then had to use snap ring pliers to remove snap ring. Pulled blower fan off, replaced with new and put back on snap ring and clamp. Reinstalled blower cover, Removed drum by cutting belt (noted the direction of the belt around the idler pulley). Replaced belt (decided since I was going to be in the dryer and it is 14 years old I would replace belt as well) and drum. Reinstalled shroud and front cover. Dryer is very very quiet now.

Living overseas and caring for a dinosaur dryer

My friend Saeed did the repair (which was really maintenance) for me. What I really want to communicate is how WONDERFUL it is to use PartSelect for folks like us living overseas and keeping alive an ancient gas dryer (not available in Morocco and infinitely cheaper than electric). We don't have a local Maytag parts dealer, so we feel lucky to have this option of using the diagrams to order exactly what we need to keep our economical and efficient gas dryer going.

Loud noise

The actual promlem was the blower fan blade I also replaced the belt and other moving parts just because ! The only thing needed to do from the back is remove the 4 screws holding a metal plate on the lower right to gain access to the belt tensioner. EVERYTHING else is done from the front Don't learn the hard way (I did). Part Select was wonderful.

Replace dryer belt and rollers

Followed the directions which were included with the parts - this was a washer dryer combo and found it easier to remove the tension spring on the the idler roller assembly to set the belt in place and then re attach the spring to the frame body.

Loud noise

watch the video. drum roller failed(noise) but looking at the rest of the dryer I desided to replace belt(cracking) and front guides(worn through in places) also discovered it wasn't mice making nests in dryer it was stuff coming through where light protective lense should have been. The video is better instruction than I could give. Thanks.

Loud rumbling noise

1st watched videos on making repairs on installing drum support roller kit,front glide kit and replacing tumbler belt.These repairs took approx 30 minutes but, didn't stop the rumbling. Went to a blog site that stated if these repairs didn't stop the noise I should take the tumbler belt off and see if the noise is coming from the motor area it was and further investigation revealed it was the plastic blower wheel,the flat spot on the blower shaft had worn out causing the blower wheel to rumble and vibrate. This repair took 15 minutes after watching the video on blower wheel repair. Runs better then new.

When the dryer grumbles check the blower wheel too.

If your dryer is making a rumbling noise, change the blower wheel. It's plastic and the heating and cooling cycles causes the keyway in the plastic to give out and the wheel just spins causing the noise and the slower dry time. The other parts I replaced see below. Like many other repairs, remove screws below dryer door. Mark all wires and locations for re-assembly. Next remove front tumbler/lint screen assembly (4 sheet metal screws 2/L 2/R. Work belt off back of tumbler and remove. Use flathead screw driver to release tabs that hold felts on both front and back tumble supports. Make sure you know rotation of tumbler and install new felts so the overlap goes in direction of spin. Use a drum stick or 3/8 ratchet extension, something dull and flat to press tabs back down on felts. A screwdriver could slip off and tear cloth. Next drill out heads of the rivets on the glides and remove teflon glide and cork backer. Make sure all rivet material is removed front and back. Install new cork and glide. Rivet one side back in, then the other. Repeat on 2nd glide. Re-assemble dryer. Super smooth, super quiet.

Belt had broken and drum wouldn't rotate.

Followed the instructions and printed out the diagram of belt rotation from your website. This was my first attempt at repairing a dryer-should take less time with future repairs. The inside of dryer need cleaning as it is over 20 years old.
