Your model number is actually "DLB1550BDLAD". The character after the second 5 is a zero, not the letter O. I'm only pointing this out to you because it is often hard to read these characters and it will avoid confusion for you in the future. The part number you need for a belt replacement is "WE12X82". You can find it at searspartsdirect.com under the "Blower and Drive Assembly" heading. It is listed as item number 213. The illustrations aren't the greatest, but they may help you as well. If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. They should carry a stock of different dryer belts. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have further questions.

The belt is broken and we need a replacement for it.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Go to any of these sites and enter your model number:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com

http://www.appliancepartspros.com

http://www.repairclinic.com

If you have difficulty locating your belt I need your complete model number and will use those same sites to find your belt for you. There are 2 different sized belts for a whirlpool dryer depending upon the model number. 27 inch dryer and 29 inch dryer.

Download this manual to help you change the belt:
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/4829abde74a34d7f85256ab000620794/$FILE/4322260.pdf

The order of removal is the toe panel, top and then the front panel to gain access to change the belt.
Toe panel (page 15 / pdf file page 20)
Top panel (page 14 / pdf flie page 19)
Front panel (page 19 / pdf file page 24)

Make sure you inspect the drum seals (felts) and the the drum rollers in the process of changing the belt.

The manual link I passed is for the 27 inch dryer but access is exactly the same for the larger dryer.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Need model number or part number for whilpool dryer


The model number for your dryer is usually located on a plate or sticker inside the door on the body of the dryer hidden by the closed door.

The most common (but not the only) belt number for Whirlpool dryers is 341241 and the idler arm for that common dryer has tabs that fit into the floor beneath the motor drive pulley. Take a loop of the belt with ribs inside the loop and pass it through the opening below the roller and loop it around the motor pulley. If it's the most common unit the end result should look like the image below for Whirlpool:

Whirlpool dryer len2000pw0, starts fine, heats up, but will not spin?


Hi, you will need to change the belt. Here is how:
Normal 0 , UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off.
There should be instructions that came with the belt. I will try and explain how this goes on. The idler pulley fits in a slot right in front of the motor. Put the belt over the drum with ribs touching drum. Now, thread the belt through the idler pulley wheel and bracket and set the belt on the motor pulley. The ribs should rest in the grooves on the motor pulley.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know. Please rate me performance so that others as well as myself will know how I am doing.

Thanks
Vic

Kenmore dryer


The belt you will need for that unit is part # 341241. These belts will fit almost all Whirlpool and Kenmore models except for the DOTT (Dryer Of Tomorrow, Today) dryers. A DOTT dryer is a Kenmore model only, and has a front kick plate and the lint filter in the door.
