Replacing the Dryer Drum Belt
« on: October 17, 2009, 02:11:17 PM »

I am in the process of replacing the belt on my Admiral/Maytag dryer. I cant seem to figure how the belt threads on the pulleys. Is there a manual or guide to show the sequence for my particular model?

Model LNC7764A71

Use the amana/speed queen routing shown here
Place the ribbed side down to the drum and make sure it ain't twisted.
With the belt on the motor pully lift up the idler high enough to slide the belt under it and let it go. The idler will pull downward and hold the belt in place. Turn the drum by hand several times to be sure you aint got that belt twisted. If it is twisted it will break on the first revolution. Seen it.
