Maytag MEDB800VQ0 Belt
« on: November 05, 2011, 01:52:24 PM »

My belt and Pulley Nut came off my dryer.  Going though the back of the machine, I screwed the nut back down but the belt is too tight to get back on.  I obtained a copy of the service manual however that just shows replacement parts.  Its a tight area to work.  can anyone recommend suggestions on ow to get this belt back on?  Thank you!

You gotta go through the front. Pop the top with a putty knife. Then remove the front then shroud. Then get the drum out and clean her up. Their are 2 belts on this one. It is a crappy design. The lint tends to pool up very badly in the blower and filter area.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

You need to apply thread lock to the threads of the blower shaft.  Route the belt so it doesn't interfere with the tab on the blower housing.

From the service pointer:

Apply a coating of medium strength   
    thread lock   (Thread lock 242 -part   
    # 4210460) to the entire length of threads 
    on the blower shaft.
