Belt replacment


Here is a diagram from kenmore corp. that should help you out
Maytag Dryer Belt Routing









route4.gif
This is the most common belt routing found on most Maytag brands clothes dryers.

Since you will have everything disassembled to change the belt, this is an excellent opportunity to vacuum out the cabinet to remove dust and lint and perform preventative maintenance on your dryer. When replacing the Belt is is a good idea to also change the Drum Support Rollers, Drum Glides, Idler Pulley and Clips. All of these items are easily changeable when replacing the belt. The upside is that your dryer will operate like new.

What's the easiest way to open up a dlb6850 dryer to check the belt?


Unplug the dryer.
The easiest way to check the belt is remove the plate on the lower rear of the dryer. Look in to see if the belt is attached around the pulley wheel.
The only way to change the belt is to remove the screws in the front panel. Open the door. Look up in the door opening and remove these screws. Then you can raise the lid.
If the belt needs changing you must remove the 2 screws in the top right and left sides of the front panel.Just inside the front panel.Then disconnect the door switch wires and remove the front panel.
Slip the belt over the drum. Then open the lower rear panel to reach in to put the belt around the tension pulley.

Replacing a belt


Hi, To replace this belt, UNPLUG the dryer. Remover the screws under the lint screen. Insert a flat blade screw driver in the gap between the top panel and the front panel and pry up the top panel.
Now locate the screw inside the front panel in the upper corners. Remove them and the front will lift up and release.
Now you will be able to change the belt. Follow the instrutions included in the belt packadge to thread the belt throught the idler pulley.
You can get the belt from my web site @ www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com if you would like.

Dryer wont turn inside but gets hot and turns on


If it's not turning at all, the belt is probably broken. If it turns a little and then stops, the belt is slipping. In either case, the belt needs to be replaced.

How do i?


Hello Friend, Replacing a dryer belt is very simple. Just remove front of dryer cabinet. unplug wires from dryer door switch. Just slide a new belt over the drum with the belt grooves facing to the inside. Underneath drum you will see a tention wheel next to motor. Install belt around tention wheel and around motor shaft pully. Re-install front dryer cabinet. Make sure to plug in the wires to the door switch and make sure that the drum is re-inserted back over the felt glide on inner cabinet front. Happy to help, Tim.

Hotpoint condenser tumble dryer model tdc30p belt replacement


You will have to unplug the dryer and remove the front panel with the door, mark and remove the wires to the door switch, then there should be two screws on the inside which you will need to remove then tilt the panel out and lift to disengage the tabs connecting it to the main cabinet. Then you should be able to remove the old belt, carefully lift the drum and slide the new belt under it. Then this is where you will need to be a contortionist and take care as there are many sharp edges under there. Locate the motor and tensioner pulley, place the belt around the tensioner and while pushing back against the spring on the tensioner hook the belt to the motor pulley, then move belt on drum so it is aligned with lower pulleys. Turn the drum by hand a couple of times to make sure everything works.
