I have this maytag dryer that keeps throwing the belt off.
I'v replaced the drum wheels, idler pull, front felt and BELT.
When I'v changed the belt it tracks in the wear mark of the old belt.
When I test it it runs fine...I had the customer put close in it and it
was running fine....the it stops.
I go and the belt is shredded.
I replaced it again....runs fine....then poops the bed.
I'v been putting the belt with the smooth side down on the drum.
Wondering if that the right way.
This all started with a bad blower wheel.
While it was apart .....let's replace the other parts...
(Mr.nice guy).
Any ideas. ....
Sorry for the long post.
good to get it out there....

Part# 33002535 Is this the part# you installed?
That is what I see is called for on Marcone. Assuming you missed a 6 before the AYW in the model. The only ones I know of that went smooth side down on the drum is the old ones. I can tell from the breakdown, but this belt part# didn't ring any bells like the one I just put on a 30year old Maytag. I don't do many dryers, so I'm no expert on them though

Yes that is the part number.
I'v replaced belts on dryers, it been flat side down.
Checking if this is different.
Haven't had this problem before.
When I got done figured it was good as new.
Now this belt problem.

I thought most newer dryers were ribs down on the drum. I've changed maybe a handful of belts myself, so I'm not real familiar with this particular model. I know the one I did that was ribs up had directions in it that said to go ribs up. As far I know most others are ribs down.

I'm going over this morning.
I'm going to try ribs down...
I'll see if the ribs match the groves in the
motor shaft.
