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

Had a hard time trying to figure out how to get to the belt at first, thinking we could unlatch the rear of the dryer, but we figured out (eventually) to take the two screws off from the front, which initally was hard to find. Once we took the front face off, it was easy to remove the panel in front of the tumbler. I made sure to mark the front and back of the tumbler, as it can be easy to install it wrong side in. If you have difficulty placing the belt on the tumbler, just follow the mark left by the old belt. Also make sure to wrap the belt around the tumbler first (taping it down aided in the install) before wraping it around the motor pulley, then finally the idle pulley. Also ensure a very tight, snug fit at the end (as it is a new belt). Good as new!!

Just followed directions, took off front part of dryer looped belt around openend up the back cover to the motor looped the belt replaced door and get it working again.

Broken drum belt

The directions that came with it were very helpful. We did not do the complete job from the front, we removed the access panel in the back to get to the idler arm. My neighbor did most of the work. I am a lousy mechanic.

Squeaky dryer

Unplugged dryer. Disconnected vent. Pulled dryer out from wall. Removed front of dryer by removing 2 screws. Removed front of tumbler with 4 screws. Removed back panel removing 4 screws. Disconnected spring that tensioned the belt. Pulled drum out and removed belt. Spent a long time vacuuming out entire inside of dryer and vent system. Had a hard time removing retaining clip on drum support wheel. Went out and bought Snap Ring Pliers to do the job. Once retaining clip was removed, replaced the new drum support wheel, put on a drum belt, and reassembled.

Belt broke

I followed the step by step approach given by others, to remove front, lint trap/drum front, & drum.

Belt over drum, replace drum, lint trap/drum front & front panel.

Leaned unit onto its front, through back access panel opening threaded belt as shown on included instructions. Made sure belt was situated correctly on the drum.

Replaced back access panel, plugged in and checked operation.

A reasonable repair if you can operate a screwdriver and follow the posts on this site.

Tumbler stopped rotating

I followed the instructions to remove the front section then I completely removed the tumbler. I placed the belt in the groove making sure it stayed flat, pulled it tight and secured it with a zip tie. Put the tumbler back in with the looped part of the belt facing the motor, then I put the front section back together.Next from the rear access panel I held the belt tight with my left hand and cut the zip tie with my right . Still keeping the belt tight I looped it around the motor and spring tension retainer. From start to finish it took about forty minutes.

Broken belt

I followed instructions that came with the part. The really difficult thing is you're working blind from the front of the dryer (can't see where the belt is threading) and doing it from a picture I found that shows the parts from the rear of the dryer. So apart from not seeing what you're doing you have to create a mirror image in your head of the pulleys. Thought I'd done it wrong when I'd put it back together and the tumbler/drum wouldn't turn. Talked to an appliance store who recommended taking the door off the back to see. I saw that everything was right, I just needed to turn the tumbler a few times to get the belt seated in the right place.

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.
