Nope,, but
all dryers are generically the same
remove the front panel and door
pull the drum
loop the belt around the drum, at apporximately the wear marks of the old belt
reinsert the drum
loop the belt around the motor pulley
pull the tensioner pulley hard against the spring to the end of its travel
loop the belt around the tensioner pulley
allow the tensioner to move back under spring pressure to tension the belt
rotate the drum by hand to make sure the belt is aligned and not coing to jump off the pulleys
reinstall front panel & door
fitting the belt to  the hoover 5050ed - 26740a0.jpg the tensioner may be on the bottom belt run pusshing up, or the top run pulling down
breaking belts sometimes pull the tensioner out of its mounts, there is only one place that the tensioner will reinstall.

Its a standard whirpool dryer, rebadged as hoover, so the local parts guy has the belts rollers felts and glides as necessary, they are common to all the dryers whirlpool makes.

HOOVER AUTO DRY 5050ED KEEPS STOPPING


hi there, I have repaired many of these dryers. It will be a faulty heater element, most likely. They cost about $40. If you get a tradesman to fit it, they will prob charge you about $200 all up. Maybe its better to buy a new dryer for around $300? Good luck.

5050ed buzzes onstart up ,needs little manual turnover to start


it can be the idler pulley that tightens the drum belt,the drum belt itself has gotten old and glazed from age,or the motor that turns the drum the bearings can be getting dried out from age and heat and getting tight requiring help to start,also the motor start switch on this motor can be getting bad contacts inside this switch,all these issues require you to dismantle the unit to some extent to check them

It sounds like your motor is faulty and cannot handle the load resistance.
You need to have the motor changed or have a Whirlpool engineer come and take a look

I have a Maytag DE50 dryer and the drum belt broke. Anyone have a diagram or instructions on how to put the new belt on?


Ignore gas references if electric dryer.
Unplug dryer and shut off gas. Disconnect gas line. Tip dryer onto its front. Remove back panel. Unscrew and remove inside back manifold. Place belt around drum and fit into pulley wheel(s) on motor shaft. (There may be a spring loaded tension arm on one of the wheels. Install the belt on it so that it pulls the belt tight around the drum and pulleys.) Check friction gasket (that the drum rotates on) on manifold and replace it if worn thin. Install manifold. Install back panel. Reconnect power and gas.

Belt change on TL22


You might want to check to make sure that you bought the correct replacement belt. A new belt SHOULD fit correctly if the replacement belt is the right one? Did you buy an original belt or a generic one? I have ran into problems by trying to substitute for the original. If I were you, I'd double check the belt #. It sounds to me like the belt might actually be the wrong one & be a little shorter than the original. Let me know if that works for you? It should. Good luck and have a good day!
