Just replaced the belt but it keeps slipping into the groove on the drum. I have gone through the "alignment" process a few times. The belt stays put and turns the tumbler fine when empty, but when loaded it keeps slipping off. Any suggestions? Idler pulley and spring seem to be ok. Thanks!!

I have replaced belt, rear drum rollers, front bearing but there is a loud rattling sound still present. It sounds like it is right below the lint screen in the front of the unit. If you hand spin the drum, you can here a rolling/rattle???

We've had this Maytag for 24 years without any repairs and it's just now that we are having trouble. Ser# 082200 NT First of all it's making this tinny rumbling sound at startup but eventually goes away. Second it doesn't get as hot inside the drum the way it used to. I guess my question to you is, can it be fixed? (I'm pretty handy) or do you think it's time to retire? Thanks Larry

I am waiting for new drum belt to arrive, I replaced the drum rollers and bearings, the idler pully with the spring attached looks ok but I noticed the assembly has side to side movement, is that how it is supposed to be? There is a small bolt/screw holding the bracket at the bottom that appears I can tighten with socket, I'm not sure it should be any tighter.???

While replacing the drum rollers and front bearing kits, is it a good idea to replace the belt. Also can all of this be done through the front or do I need to pull off the back?

I have installed the belt, groove in the belt facing away from the drum around the tumbler. Around the large white plastic idler pulley, and around the motor pulley. But the belt is hitting the metal guide by the large white plastic idler pulley and also rubbing against the belt on the machine pulley. It almost feels like the belt shul d 98" as opposed to 100" to put the right tension on the spring holding the plastic idler pulley. What am I doing wrong?

makes a rattling sound at start up and is noisy when turning, sounds sort of like a bearing, all original still and @ 13 years old, , I'm pretty handy but it looks like I need to pull out from wall and open the back to work on it. What parts do you recommend to fix?
