Takes a little time. front of dryer comes off. drum assembly has a felt gasket attached to front assembly. when you get the front removed the belt can be removed from around drum and motor pulley. most are fairly easy to do, just take your time and find all the screws to remove the front plus most have a clip for final removeal. don't forget to shut off power to dryer. best done by unplugging

New drive belt on LG dryer to loose?


belt goes around drum the to the right of the tensioner and then to the motor pulley. you have to move the tensioner to the left to get the belt to the motor pulley. so the belt goes to the top of the tensioner, and around it in a clockwise manner, to the motor, not just under the motor and under the tensioner.

My affinity front load washer drum will not move after the water goes in nothing else happens.


The belt needs tightening, remove the back, you will see a belt which goes around the drum & back to the motor, the motor has an adjustment feature that by moving it away from the drum tightens the belt, there should be no more than 8mm deflection either side of the belt when it is adjusted correctly, when this is done replace the back & your machine should spin & wash, If it does not after this simple fix then you either need a replacement panel (Electronics) or a replacement motor

Changing dryer belt on kirkland/whirlpool dryer took apart dryer but dont see where belt suppose to mount.


Hello. The belt goes around the tub and the tension pulley. In fact, it is always a good idea to replace both the belt and the idler/tension pulley at the same time. J.

If you want a schematic go to searsdirect.com and enter your model number. J.

Need to replace drum belt


Most dryers have a tensioner pulley that the belt needs to go around to keep it tight. The belt goes around the motor pulley and the drum, but it goes around the tensioner pulley in a way that would keep it tight (you also need to release the tension on the tensioner to get the belt around it) If there's not a tensioner pulley there has to be some other means of putting tension on that belt, look around the the other pulleys that the belt goes around.

Drum does not rotate


The drum rotates due to a belt that goes around the drum and is driven by a small motor. The most likely answer is that the belt broke. This a common problem on an older dryer. It is relatively easy to replace the belt.

Dryer belt replacement


To replace the belt, you have to take the front off the dryer and lift out the drum. With the new belt, place it around the drum and with the drum in place put the excess belt through the idler pulley or bracket (depending on your model), then around the motor pulley. You push the bracket or idler arm toward the motor to get the "loop" of the belt around the pulley on the motor. Hope this helps! Paul Hoffmanns

looking at the back of the motor where the belt pulley is you would grasp belt coming down from the left side of drum then come across the top of belt pulley that is on motor shaft going clockwise around that pulley then continue back to your left and over the top of belt tension pulley going counterclockwise around that pulley this is when you will have to raise pulley against spring pressure to get belt on then release belt tension pulley make sure that belt is still in belt groove on the drum hope this helps ed
