Okay, approach the dryer and first unplug it from power. Now very carefully take a flat blade screw driver and push the blade into the right or left front corners of the dryer box exterior between the mani box housing and the top. Carefully pry upward trying not to scar the porcelain paint finish. You will hear apop as the lid hold down spring detaches and releases. repeat on the other side. Place a hand on each of the lid corners and lift. the top will rise a angle upwards and to the back, use something to prop up the lid. Now looking down you will see the drum and a large narrow band running around the drums circumference . This is the drum belt if it is tight with no play. It is in
a proper position if it is about 4 to 6 inches from the back of the drum.
If it is displaced or hanging off the back see if it will move back up onto the drum. If when you do this it is loose or not tensioned tightly the belt will need adjusting down near the motor. To do this you must remove the back of the dryer, please be careful not break or disconnect the wires unless you mark them with tape to show where they were attached. Now this step works for both broken and displaced ,or improperly tensioned belts. at the motor near the bottom of the dryer you will see a pulleythat the belt attaches to on the motor right above the motor pulley you will see a tensioning bar or a pulley .this tensions the belt so it will tightly grip the drum of the dryer and the motor pulley.
Loosen the bracket position the belt and then retighten making sure the belt tension is tight on the drum. Now hand rotate the drum and see if the tension of the belt turns with the motor and does not slip.
IF it slips retension and recheck. If everything turns the way it should
Put the dryer back together, but do not entirely close the lid.Plug the dryer in, Set a dryer preset such as air dry and turn it on. if the
drum turns and doesn't squeal every thing is a okay . Turn it off and close the lid. Make sure the lid holddown catches lock the lid down.
Pop in a mid size load of clothes or Towels turn the unit on. If it squels it needs re tensioning. Now worst case scenario, the belt wont tension because it is stressed, frayed or stretched, go through the replacement procedure again. Proper Tension of the belt is key to peak operation. Good Luck if you are a stickler for proper belt deflection, a
technical term used forhow tight a belt can be before a belt is too tight, go to the dryer company's website and look for drum belt deflection measurements. I always used the belt rotation slip or no slip test. Have fun !!
Sounds like you may need to adjust tension on the belt. To do that you have to expose the motor which will be in the back side of dryer and in the lower left or right hand side. Remove the access panel or on some models you have to remove entire back and then you will see the motor, there will probably be 2 bolts that need to be loosened on motor then you will need a small pry bar to apply tension on motor to tighten belt. Retighten bolts and put back cover on.
First before you you raise the top, open the cover on the back by the
motor and let the belt loose from the motor pulley unless the belt has
broken. If it has go to the lid. Slide a thin flat blade under the
front of the lid and feel for the two clips several inches in from the
corners. Push straight in on a clip while pulling up on the lid at the
front edge and it will release the lid at that point. Do the other
clip. Lift the lid. Three are usually two screws, one on each side
holding the front tight. With the screws removed, pry out by each of
the push clips on the side. The front should be come loose. Swing it
away slightly paying attention to the wires to the door switch. Slide
the new belt over the drum and work it to where it ran in the past. Put
the front back on and snap the lid down. When putting the front on
guide the front panel and the drum together at the felt seal. Open the
panel on the back near the motor. Reach in and spring the belt
tightener over and put the belt around the motor pulley. Let the spring
tightener tighten the belt. Put the cover back on.
Model #? If this is a standard dryer with the idler pulley, place the pulley into the slots to the left of the motor pulley. Bring the belt through the idler so it is running on the flat side of the belt and place the belt around the motor. The idler should be placing down pressure on the belt keeping it tight. make sure there are no twists all the way around the drum or it will pop off. Eric
I can not find a diagram using your model number.
However, most Speed Quenn dryers have 2 screws on the bottom right and left sides of the front panel.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the 2 screws.
Lift the panel forward and disconnect the door switch wires.
Reemove the belt and drum to access the heater circuit.
