I think you have this in the wrong category. There is a belt that spins the dryer 'drum,' it has probably failed (broke) and needs to be replaced. You need to go to a appliance part store (or check online) for the proper replacement belt. It isn't a real difficult job to do, make sure you unplug the machine before starting. You don't state the make of the dryer, but you can probably access the belt from the back, which will require removing the rear panel. There is a belt tensioner inside, and it could have failed, not the belt. Good luck

A belt broke on my car and my ac dont work....what do i need or how much would it cost to repair?

im not sure of the year,make or model of this car but if everything else is working like the powersteering and alternator and car doesnt overheat then i would say that the belt may only run the ac compressor. the first thing to check is all pulleys, the belt may have broke due to being worn and old, the belt may have also broke due to a bad pulley or a frozen one. check all pulleys in which the belt runs on. spin each pulley by hand and make sure it spins freely, if all spins free then install a new belt , make sure to check the ac compressor also. good day.

Hi My 2000 Swift 1.3 with manual trans will not

When you say it doesnt start does the engine spin over and not go or when you turn the key it doesnt try to spin and start. this makes a big diffrence, if you try to start it and the engine will not spin to try and start then i would say it may be a bad starter or the battery , i would also have the alternator tested. now if the engine spins over and over but wont start then that may be a few things that may be bad, the best thing is to see if you have fuel and spark this will help pin point the problemto lack of spark or fuel, try spraying starting fluid into throtle and see if it runs a few seconds if it does then its a fuel problem but if it doesnt then it may be spark, this can be caused by a bad module that heats up module i mean an ignition module or can be a bad coil or even the computer but a little testing will be needed to pin down the problem, hope this helps, have a good day.

Drivers side power seat does not move forward or back.

You will need to check the track and the motor, take note there are 3 motors for diffrent operations,pinpoint the one for foward and back, seeif it spins, you will hear it, then if it spins lookat the ends of the cables coming off motor to track look closely and see if there spinning, if the motor runs its ok. if not bad motor, if the cables spin at track then track is bad, now if motor doesnt spin test the connector at motor for power and a ground, if theres power and ground then its the motor if theres no power or ground then it may be the switch or module.

AC compressor

doesnt mean system is empty,because no oil came out off compressor,unless the system was flush and should be flushed with cleaner, then the system would hold 10oz, of oil,also make sure to spin compressor by hand 10 times to get the oil and liqiud out of cylinders,add a couple ozes of oil in dryer then compressor and the evaporator core to equal 10oz of oil,after added oil to compressor stand on pulley to coat seal let sit for 10min, then after all line are connected then you spin 10 turns, hope this help,

94 toyota corolla doesnt start

check battery first, if engine spins but no start then check for fuel, also remove a sparkplug wire and spin engine see if there is spark, may be a fuel pump if no gas or a disturbutor or its cap if no spark, if it doesnt spin at all then may be battery or starter, hope this is helpful.
