maytag dryer MDE960AYW BELT Problem
Posted Today, 07:04 AM
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...
Any ideas. ....
Sorry for the long post.
good to get it out there....

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

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.
