It is very much easier to replace the belt from the front, than the back, the cabinet disassembles from the front, and the mechanism remians attached to the rear plate and cabinet floor.

  • pull lint filter out
  • remove 2 screws from under lint filter
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, release clips at front corners of cabinet top
  • tilt up cabinet top
  • remove 1screw 1/3 way down each side of front of cabinet.
  • lift off cabinet front
  • drum, motor, tensioner, are all exposed

  • lift drum out forward
  • check rollers, drum felts, nylon glide bearings for wear
    (worn bearing surfaces are the most common cause of belt breakage and you dont want to do it again next month)
  • reinstall tensioner in slots in cabinet floor, reinstall tensioner spring between tensioner and cabinet floor
    (Once the cabinet is open the tensioner mounts are easily visible)
  • loop belt around drum at the wear marks of the prior belt
  • reinstall drum on unworn bearing rollers etc
  • loop belt around motor pulley
  • pull tensioner hard against spring to end of travel
  • loop belt around tensioner
  • relax tensioner
  • spin drum by hand to ensure belt isnt going to jump off
reinstall cabinet in reverse order
~15 MINUTES, but I do 3-4 per day

Kenmore Dryer Belt Diagrams and Replacement


Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.



For Kenmore models starting with 110 or C110 with a removable back use this:

Kenmore 110.731102100 Gas Dryer replace belt


The way to visually see if the belt has broken or not is to 1) unplug the dryer. 2) Remove the lint screen on the top of the dryer. 3) take the two phillips head screws out where the lint trap is. 4) with a flat head screwdriver pop the top of the dryer up by sliding the driver inbetween the top and front of the dryer and pry upwards a little. 5) You'll now see the drum, if the belt is not around it its broken, and if it's visible try to lift it. If it taught, its good. IF THE BELT IS BROKEN OR LOOSE CONTINUE TO NEXT STEPS 6) on the left and right upper inner sides of the dryer you will find two screws, one on each side, remove these and the front should be easlily remove. 7) once off you'll be able to easily see the motor, the belts idler pulley, and everything else.
Leave the drum in the machine. Now, directly in front of the motor on the floor of the dryer you will see two slots. This is where the idler pulley will go. You'll notice on the pulley at the bottom of the bracket a piece of metal sticks downward. This will sit in the slot closest to the dryer wall, and the end of the bracket will slide into the other. You'll want to slide the end in first. Now with the pulley in place take the belt and put it around the drum tread side down. To hook the belt around the motor pulley you'll have to pull the idler pulley towards closest dryer wall and place the belt around the motor pulley. Slowly release the idler pulley and thats it. Put it together and your done.

Drum does not turn


Hello,
Here are a few things to check. If you don't feel comfortable performing these check, please have a repair person come in and check it.

* Broken belt. Open dryer and see if belt is still wrapped around the drum. Pull on the belt to make sure it's not just hanging there. Inspect belt condition. Do not apply spray adhesive in this case: replace the belt. If belt is broken, look for contributing causes for failure such as worn drum rollers, damaged felt kit, or stiff idler roller.

* Motor burned out. Remove belt from motor pulley and start dryer. If motor runs but is noisy and motor is unable to turn the drum when the drum belt is threaded back on the motor pulley, then replace the motor.

* Thermal fuse is open. Run continuity test.

Hope this helps.

You have to remove the front panel. The top folds back and there are 2 screws on the inside corners to release the front. Eric

Amana dryer does not run but i can hear the motor faintly


Sounds like the belt is either broken or slipped off the pulley. Remove the back of the dryer and find the motor. Look to see if the belt is still attached to the pulley. If not, look to see if it has slipped form the pulley and is hanging from the drum, or if it is broken. More than likely, regardless of which it is, you will just need to replace the belt.

Can't get replacement parts back on Kenmore 60 series dryer.


The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.

Hi. The dryer drum belt has broken . Need help in replacing it. It is a Whirlpool 3397618Rev.B and sems to be a 1999 product. Looks like some type of pulley might also have broken. Bonnie


2cb8663.gif This picture may help it shows the position of the belt tensioning pulley (#53) . The bottom of the spring goes into a slot in the bottom of the dryer cabinet and spring tension against the belt holds it in place. Thus the reason why it was probably just laying there when you opened the cabinet.
