Question and Answers


How to route the belt around the drum for a Maytag DE 8500 dryer, and how to remove the top?


I assume you have the front panel off. If you don't have the front panel off, it must be taken off before you can access the screws holding the top to the side panels. To remove the front panel, remove the two screws located at the bottom of the front panel. Tilt the bottom of the front panel outwards about 35 degrees and the front panel will disengage at the top and drop down and off.

I added the instructions in the image below how to route the belt.
