first you have to take the door of the front off and then across from the door the screws out of the other side ,then remove front panel by pulling it out from the sides at the top then you will need to remove the inner drum support by removing the 5/16" screws there atre 4 at least but some have more the you can slip the new belt in around the drum and put the drum support back on, can you get me the model number so i can tell you how the belt goes around the motor and pully? thanks Bryan

Model Number Locator Tips
1. A zero in the model number might be the letter O.
2. A lower case L might be a 1.
3. Some models have 3 digits and a period first, like this 555.66666666
Look for an aluminum tag--or a silver and white adhesive label in the locations illustrated below. The model number may be printed or stamped onto the tag and may be printed in different type sizes. NOTE: There may be partial model numbers on marketing stickers or in the owner's manual. These are often incomplete. For best results use the model number from the tag.

well anyway did you get the front off? I'll send all the diagrams for maytag belts and you will probably be able to tell by looking at them . is ther a little cover on the back bottom to take off to see the pully assembly. ? click here for diagrams, hope this helps, thanks Bryan, link
