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!

Broken belt

I bought this machine in 1984. For the belt to last this long, is extraordinary. The belt comes in a plastic bag with instructions. After removing the front cover(2 screws at the bottom, tip bottom out towards you. Cover unhinges from the top. Lean face against a wall. Don't remove any wires). I then vacuumed the inside thoroughly. Used a parts brush to wipe everything off, and blew out with compressed air. Vacuumed again. A bit obsessive, but gas and dust are not a good combination. So why not take the extra time. There is a continuous mark on the circumference of the drum, left by the original belt. Use this as your guide to locate the new belt. Rotate the drum by hand to make sure it tracks correctly. I also ran the motor with everything open, to make sure everything was cool before I buttoned it up. Also took the time to replace the gas line with a new one, and duct-taped the vent pipe to improve air flow.

Dryer barrel was not turning

Looked in one of the back removable panels and saw the broken belt. Took the machines front panel off per a You Tube video and saw the repair was simple but too the time to vacuum out a large amount of Lint Debris that had accumulated over the past 34 years all over the inside of the machine which is dangerous.. After cleaning it all up I simply put the new belt on and put everything back together and it all works nicely again!

Here are a couple of tidbits to add to the excellent instructions already here.

1) I replaced my idler wheel because the bracket was flopping about. However, so did the new one. Apparently it's engineered in, as the idler wheel is self-centering. The play allows for some leeway in placement of the tumbler belt on the tumbler. 2) The ribbed side of the tumbler belt should face away from the tumbler; the flat side rides on the tumbler surface. One of the videos had this backward I thought. 3) I put white lithium grease on the white friction block on the idler wheel bracket as there appeared to have been grease on the old one. I never could get clear direction on whether the drum roller and idle wheel shafts should be lubricated. I opted to leave them dry as they are plain bearing and there is no service interval specified for them. My dryer is 35 years old (go, Maytag!) and never was lubricated by me. As I can't imagine any factory lubrication would last that long I conclude they should be left dry. Just my guess though. YMMV. 4) it should be obvious, but the idler wheel is best serviced through the access panel on the rear of the dryer. 5). If you're replacing the drum rollers, you really need snap ring pliers. Mine were broken so I struggled for a long time removing the nuts on the roller shafts blind. Then I went out afterward and bought the pliers at AutoZone. Go figure. 6) unless you've got the right size stubby Phillips screwdriver, it's a lot easier to get the dryer face panel off if you prop the front of the dryer up on a wood block for clearance. 7) I thought the screw attaching the idler pulley bracket to the frame was rounded off because I kept turning it and nothing happened. In fact, the flopping of the bracket had destroyed some of the screw threads over time so they had no purchase. I used a screwdriver to lever the screw head away from the frame so that the remaining threads could track and that finally got it; 8) Finally, don't buy the two drum roller shaft fiber washers for $22 separately as I did. They are include in the package with the new rollers.

Clothes were making a thumping sound in the dryer for a few days and then the tumbler stopped moving.

I followed your videos for replacing the drum belt and the front glide kits. The videos made it pretty easy. Thank you!

My maytag drum belt broke after 24 years in use.

After watching the accompanied video that was delivered via email, the repair was straite forward. I used a vacuum cleaner wand to vacuum up the inside of the dryer. I also took extra time to clean the exhaust duct. Make sure to unplug the dryer electrical cable when doing this belt replacement. No other special tools needed other than a snub nosed Philips.

Dryer was not tumbling

I watched the instructional video-it was extremely helpful! I have no experience with taking apart or fixing a dryer, but the video showed me everything I needed to do. It took me 1-2 hours, but I think it only took so long because my dryer was disgusting inside (full of many years of lint and dog hair) and a lot of that time was spent cleaning it. I was thrilled that I only had to spend $20 (including shipping) and a couple hours and now it runs great! I looked up the model-it's from 1985! A new dryer is not something I'm excited to spend my money on, so now I'm going to come back to this website if anything else goes wrong and fix it myself!

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.
