    The Maytag dependable series were very good.

Wear a thick long shirt reaching through that stuff. No reason for them not to make the back of the dryer removable but they don't. You take the front off to get the belt on then take a small panel off the back and reach through to put it on the pulley.
    That's another of the 30+ different models that are completely different in how they come apart.

    Sorry about the stitches. Mine has no panel in the back to remove. I've got to re-route the belt while reaching beneath and beyond the drum. And there's only room for one arm. The part is supposed to come tomorrow.

    We'll see.

    Maytag isn't a company anymore. They are owned by Whirlpool and even though you can buy "Maytag" appliances, they are whirlpool designs.

    Update:

    It all went back together fairly easily. The replacement part came today. The tension new tension pulley uses ball bearings rather than just a bushing, much better design.

    It was one screw to reattach the tension arm. Decided to replace the belt while I was there. The old belt had no visible wear after 5 years.

    The drum goes back in, then the pulley has to be re-routed in a blinded fashion. The easiest way for me was to kneel toward the dryer and put my head and shoulders inside the drum. Then I was able to reach beneath the drum (belt rides half way back on the the outside of the drum) and use both hands to run the belt around the tension pulley.

    From there, it was only about 15 minutes to get all the pieces back together. And...

    It works!!!!

    Correction: My 20 year old dryer is a Whirlpool Heavy Duty, not a Maytag.
