    Default How old is it?

    MDE3500AYW

    This is the model number of a Maytag a friend of mine owns. I would like to know how old it is before having them invest a bundle in new parts.

    Thanks

    The "Y" in the model number indicates the year 2000 I believe.

    Thank you Jeff1
    I will let the owner know and decide what to do next.
    From the description given it may only need new support wheels for the drum. The drum is pinching clothes and from the pictures I have seen it look or appears to have a gap at the top of the drum and not the bottom where the drum faces the door or front.
    I will be back with some better pics and share my opinion what it may need.

    Belt goes on flat side down? I think that is what the video said.

    I must be losing my mind in my old age. I thought I always put them on with the ribs down.

    Just the older dependable care style maytag go flat down.....it did help the belt to last longer that way.....everybody else is ribs down....even newer maytags.
