I removed the two screws located on the front panel close to the bottom. I took the front panel off. Then I removed the four screws holding the framework in place in front of the tumbler. Then I removed two more screws, each located on the upper inside of the front of the top. Then I took the top off and set aside. Next, I took out the tumbler and put some oil on the rear rollers. I installed the belt around the pulley system located at the rear left side of the dryer. Then I stretched the belt around the tumbler, aligning it about 2 inches back from screws located towards the back of the tumbler. Afterward, I put everything back together.
I followed the instructions given by other DIYs. The rubber band for the belt was a great suggestion, however having no rubber band nearby, I used a zip-tie that worked out perfectly.The only tool that I wished I had is a pair of split ring pliers. Not having a pair, used a pair of needle nose and a very small screw driver to provide the leverage to remove the washer.After following the instructions that came with the belt on how to properly align it to the motor wheel and tension wheel, I plugged everything back in and started it up. Sounded like it was brand new.I decided not to replace the rollers or drum guides as they looked to be in good shape.
My husband was working alone as I was at work. He followed the drawing to install the new belt. Removed all the screws and nuts then slid the front panal away from the machine. He put on the new belt with some difficulty but did get the new one on. He also had to work from the back of the dryer to get the belt onto the motor gears. He then replaced the front panal, screws, and bolts and was finished. And his wife said "YYYEEEAAAHHH!!! Thanks guys, PartSelect is the best. AAA++++
After reading the other E-mails and checking the Schematics included with this website - I found the information extremely helpful. I decided to order a new belt (even though the old one looked acceptable), because mine is more than 10 years old. They send you information with order too that helps explain the process of replacement. I followed the procedures that everyone else recommended - therefore, It would be repetitive to do over again. I could not find an exact match with my model number, but some of the descriptions were close (unfortunately I do not have the model number with me right now). People who attempt to replace their belt should be aware that replacing it is a trial and error thing. It took me a while when holding the tumbler up with my left hand and hooking the belt over the motor wheel and pulley wheel with my right hand, at the same time. You can not see what your doing and you are doing everything by touch. You have to twist it a certain way - not easy in tight quarters! The other thing that I discovered was the pulley wheel was difficult to turn. I had to spray alot of silicon spray and turn it by hand a number times to get it loose. Once it loosened up it turned over very easily.I'm glad I did this procedure on my own. Its good to know that you are saving money by not calling a repairman and figuring it out on your own.Thanks again Parts Select!
My 10 plus year old Maytag gas dryer was making a lot noise. I ordered a new exhaust fan and also ordered a new belt and two new rollers figuring once I got the thing opened up I should replace a few parts. First unplugged the dryer (very important!).Took the front panel off by removing the two screws at the bottom. Disconnected the two connectors for the door switch. Used socket wrench to remove the four hex screws that hold the front of the dryer drum in place. Put my arms inside the dryer to the back of the drum and slide the old belt off the drum. Pulled the drum out and put aside. Used socket wrench to remove several hex screws which hold the fan cover in place. Used needlenose plyers to remove one clip and a pair of circlip pliers to remove the second clip (had to buy these pliers at HD for $20). Took old fan off, put new on one, put clips back on. Replaced fan cover with hex screws. Then onto the rollers. These are held in place by similar clips as the fan and need to be removed with circlip pliers (really tough to do otherwise with trashing the clips). Took the old rollers off (they were actually in decent shape by I replaced them anyhow). Oil the shaft the spin on. Put new rollers on. Put clips back on. Now new fan and rollers. Vacuumed all the lint out from around the inside. Took old belt off (noting that ridged side goes along inside of motor pulley). Put new belt around the motor and tensioner pulley and rested the rest of the belt against the inside of the dryer. Put the barrel back into the dryer against the back. Put my arms inside the dryer and managed to get the belt around the drum in the proper position (take note of proper position when you take the old belt off). Put front drum holder back in place with 4 hex screws (make sure felt "glides" are not folded in and are positioned properly). Put front panel back on (2 screws on bottom). Don't forget to reconnect the door switch. Plug into power. Test. Quite as a mouse.
the right belt was easy to find on your website. It arrived in short order. The instructions were good and easy to follow and we were able to remove the front panel four screw and the tumbler was out. placed the belt on the tumbler replaced it and laced the belt on the motor. replaced the screws holding the tumbler then the front panel. about 30 mins and it was working again. Thanks :)
I took out the front cover then holding piece of drum in front then the drum(tumbler) place the belt around and put everything back in place. Then pulled the dryer and remove the little window at the back.Then while I washolding white piece my wife place the belt around the motor.Only thing different than instructions, it was not possible for meto reach motor from front of the unit with my left hand and place the belt around motor and tensioner.
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.
removed the front panel, pulled out the drum, applied the new belt, reassembled, put in screws and voila.....the dryer worked.
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.
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.
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!!
Removed front cover. 2 screws front bottom. replaced belt using mark on drum to locate belt as close as possible on drum. Replaced idler assy spring from rear acess cover. attached belt to motor pulley. Tested before installing front cover. Piece of cake.
took the drum out and installed the roller.
