This diagram shows you how a Maytag Dryer Belt goes around the motor pulley and the belt idler pulley.

The flat side of belt goes against drum.

Tip: I recently worked on a couple of these. It is much easier to remove the spring and route the belt then reconnect the spring. Wrastlin with the idler with that sping attached is pretty tough. This is what it looks like on the old dryer:

I usually do them from the front inside the dryer since it is open anyway. I haven't seen one from the rear in 20+ years.

Same here.  I stick my head in the drum and install it blind.  It's gets easy after you've done a few hundred.

I do it from the front too guys, but for the DIYer that has never done it before I thought it may help to have a diagram or photo.

I do the front also.
It is pretty easy if you loop the belt over the large roller wheel and then use the belt to pull up on the roller wheel to get the rest of the belt around the motor pulley shaft.
