Maytag Dryer Loafer Pulley Substitute, Dryer Restore #6-3037050

This video provides step-by-step instructions for replacing the idler pulley on Maytag dryers. The most common reasons for replacing the idler pulley are when …


  1. Wait a second, I thought Maytags never broke down and their repair men just sat around cracking nuts with their tools. Times sure have changed for the worse.

  2. What’s the part number on that spring behind the pulley?

  3. How much you are stunning, well done , thanks alot

  4. The pulley is in the rear of my dryer LDE4910ACW so should I be able to do this by removing the access panel on the back – after removing the drum, belt, etc?  I replaced the rollers once before and it appears the pulley is so far down and to the back that it would be difficult to get to from the front.  Thanks!

  5. On our Maytag Ensignia QS 200, the drum isn't rolling when clothes are inside but does roll without clothes.  Any suggestions ? 

  6. I found the video I need you guys are great

  7. I need to replace the motor on the exact dyer that is in this video I changed the belt a couple years ago and it was rather easy but the motor seems more complicated it has a hard time starting and then it goes for 5 minutes and shuts down it also smells a little and make a screeching noise while it runs

  8. You guys rock. Success! Thank you. 

  9. Thank you for the comment about the groove! The belt was scraping against the guide and we couldn't figure out why. We properly placed the belt NOT in the groove, and it works perfectly now!

  10. It is important to note that the belt does not go in the groove of the drum, but rather should be 2-3 inches in front of the groove on the flat part of the drum.

  11. Hey, I have the same problem as you did with too much slack in the belt. The drum doesn't turn when I put a medium load of wet clothes in the dryer. Did you figure it out? Do you have any advice for the weary do-it-yourselfer? Please answer asap. Thanks.

  12. I hope you're able to figure out what's going on soon!

  13. I just replaced the belt on my dryer that came with the house. I think the belt on it may be a size too large since it did what yours does when I put it into the grove. However if it's placed on the drum about 1/2 inch outside the groove it fits like the previous one did. I've still got a squeal but I'm gonna try lubing/check the rollers and maybe replace the drum glides next paycheck since it didn't squeal when empty.

  14. Unfortunately we can't offer repair help from our YouTube channel. If you're unable to find the information you need on our website, we suggest that you use a search online to find a reliable online repair forum. It's likely that your question has already been answered there. We also recommend contacting your product's manufacturer or calling a local repair technician. I hope this helps!

  15. I put the belt as instructed in this video, but the belt leaves too much slack & rubs between the back sides of the belt from the drum & the motor pulley. Also, from the metal bracket on the idler pulley. The number from the old belt matches the one. Any ideas why it rubs?

  16. Great job. Thanks. You saved me a few bucks
