There should be a nameplate along the door opening. This is normally where Whirpool puts their information. Just open the door and look along the door or door frame opening. The nameplate data can also be located along the back of the operator console on some models. Let me know if you still can't find it. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: The belt on my Whirlpool Dryer mod. TEDS840JQ2

You can replace the dryer belt by performing the following steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer.
2. Open the lint screen cover on the top of the washer and remove the screen.
3. With the screen removed, locate the two screws under the lint screen cover and remove. Use care not to drop them down the exhaust chute.
4. With the screws removed, the top panel can be pulled towards you slightly and lifted up.
5. Either prop the top panel up or rest on one of your shoulders as you locate the door switch plug and disconnect.
6. With the top still up, locate the two screws holding the front panel in place. There is one on each side bolting the front panel to the side panels.
7. With the screws removed and door switch unplugged, grab the front panel at the top center and lift up to remove from the mounting clips at the bottom.
8. With the front panel removed, you should now have ready access to the drum and drive belt. You can lower the top panel and rest it on top of the dryer casing for now.
9. Remove the old belt and loop the new belt over the drum with the ridges facing the drum.
10. Reroute the belt around the idler pulley and drive motor shaft. NOTE: It is common for the idler pulley to come loose when the belt breaks. You may find it lying on the bottom of the dryer cabinet. To reinstall, hold the pulley in your hands with the wheel to your left. Insert the cleated end of the pulley in the grooves in the bottom of the dryer case and push the wheel with your left hand to the right to keep a slight tension on the pulley. Now feed the drive belt UNDER the wheel and over the drive motor shaft. If done correctly, the belt tension will keep the idler pulley in place. If confused, refer to and click on the "Repair Help" link. On the following page look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section. The diagram you will need is diagram H.
11. Once the belt is in place, reinstall the front panel by making sure it is inserted on the two small black mounting clips at the bottom two edges, first. Once inserted, hold the panel in place with your knee and install the two mounting bolts to secure the panel.
12. Reconnect the door switch plug. If you forget, the dryer will not run.
13. Lower the top panel back in place and install the two screws under the lint screen cover. DONE.

You may feel like a contortionist with some of the these steps. You can perform this alone, but its easier if you have assistance.

If you get stuck along the way, or have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS Refer to and type in your model number for some excellent exploded views of your dryer. This may help you in locating parts and how to reassemble.

It sounds like your drive belt might be broken you can get a new one if you go to enter in your model number and it should cost around 9$ the other possibility is the tension pulley or if it doesn't sound like your motor is running but most likely the drive belt .

My Estate gas dryer will not tumble. What should I look for to repair? Model number is TGDS740PQ1

Most dryers are driven by a belt around the drum, motor and tention pulley. Check the belt.

The dryer will get hot but the drum will not go around

More than likely, the belt is broken. Otherwise, the drum motor is shot. (That's not very likely though).

How to install a belt on a Whirlpool dryer model LEW0050PQ?

The tech I paid to replace the belt opened the case from the top and the back, and pulled the drum back away from the front, keeping the drum attached to the back panel. This exposed the motor and the broken belt, which had been cut by the motor drive wheel, probably because the drum was too heavy. Don't you just love renters?
