I bought my dryer belt dirrectly from Danby. They first gave me the name of a company to get it from, when I called them, I was told they no longer handled Danby. So I called Danby back, the woman I talked with was very helpful. She ordered the belt and sent instructions on how to change the belt out myself, and said if I had any problems with the installation, give them a call. It took me about two and a half hourse to replace the belt. But if I had to do it again I think I could do it in 30 to 45 min. By the way I'm a 60yr old woman.

Kenmore dryer Tub will not turn freely. Feels as if it's hung up. When you you press the start button it will just make a humming noise.


Hi,
A guess, sounds like you are hearing the motor running but no tub belt as it is probably broke. If you are asking then you probably don't know how to fix it so you should call a repairman. Or the tub guides are wore out either way a repairman can help.

Replace drive belt


This is a pretty simple DIY repair that can save you a bunch of money by not calling a repairman to do it for you. Here's a comprehensive how-to video showing how it is done on a Whirlpool dryer.

Your brand dryer may be different - but should have a very similar belt replacement procedure. If you'd rather see a video for your brand / model, have a look here for available belt replacement videos for other brands.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

My 13 year old Maytag Dryer rumbles to a start when you turn it on and rumbles to a stop. Sounds like the belt is slipping to me. Should I contact a repairman to replace it?


I would check the drum rollers and glides first, the other cause may be the idler assembly which is next to the motor, it keeps tension on the belt. Since you will have it apart you can check the belt for cracks and wear, if it looks good then I would not replace it. eBay is a cheap place to find dryer parts, here is a website on the rollers/glide you can go to the virtual repairman and it will help. I think it is a good site to troubleshoot just about anything you may have problems with, Good Luck Tim.

My whirlpool AWZ2303 only seems to be blowing cold


If your not getting heat from the machine its probably due to a faulty heating element. You can get the part at an appliance parts shop by bringing them the model number or you can call in a pro repairman to have a look and replace it. Do it yourself is cheaper by far but can be difficult on newer machines like this one.

My dryer won't turn on


Make sure that the problem is not a broken belt, or a belt that has slipped off of the motor pulley or idle arm pulley.
Look to see if the motor is running first, sometimes you cannot hear the motor running but it is.
Also you can check your breakers to see if one is kicked out.
This problem can also be caused by a faulty start switch.
If this is not the problem than it may be time to call the repairman

I hear the motor running, but the dryer does not spin.What should i do?


your belt has been either stretched and no longer fits snugly around the drum enough to turn it or its snapped all together
in all honesty unless you've done it before i'd call a repairman, for two reasons its a 220 appliance and taking a newer drier apart means lots of little skrews and cut fingers

Dryer drum making thumping noise


My dryer just started making this noise. So I opened the back up to try to figure out what it might be, and when I opened it I saw something. It was part of the belt that drives the dryer. There are grooves vulcanized to the belt, and a small section of grooves or cogs I think is what they are called had come apart from the belt and what laying there on the floor of the dryer. But I ran it and timed the thumps in my head to get it to stop right on the "thump". Sure enough there was a small 1/2'' appx. of belt Cog missing, so the "thump" came from when the belt came around to the motor and the pulley hit a divit in the belt, "thump". So needless to say I need to replace the belt soon before it breaks completely. I figure that it looks like someone may benefit from knowing what the noise is. Now its off to find the proper belt and look up how to change those things...Good luck to those reading this.
