I could be wrong, but I don't know of a dryer that DOESN'T use a belt to turn the drum. If the motor is turning on, and the drum is not spinning, more than likely your suspicions are correct and the belt is broken. You can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number you have provided and look under the "Tumbler" heading for item number 5 (part #341241). The website also offers some helpful exploded view illustrations to assist in part location and installation.

Repairclinic.com carries the part at a cheaper price (item number 529597). Use the part number provided by the Sears website for your search criteria. Repairclinic also offers dryer belt installation diagrams. Just click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page and look under the "Special Features" section on the following page for "Dryer Belt Diagrams". Magic Chef uses diagram F. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

I own a Magic Chef model YG225LV and the drum stopped spinning. Looks like I need to disconnect the vent and gas lines and open it in back to get to the belt for replacement. Can you confirm that?

Magic Chef electric Dryer won't start


Do you have power going to the receptacle. You can first go to your house panel and look for the circuit breaker for the dryer (usually a 30 amp 2-pole brkr.). It could be tripped. So first, put your dryer in the off position. Next, go back to your circuit breaker in your house panel. Turn off the breaker, and then turn it back on. This should reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Then go back and try turning on your dryer. If this doesn't work, feel free to contact me again. However, this would seem to be it. Good Luck to you!

My magic chef dryer heats but will not blow air


A dryer fan is usually directly connected to the motor. If you hear the motor running, maybe the fan broke off, or the duct is really clogged.

Dryer makes squeaking noise ,then dryer shuts off. mdl.#CYG4000AWW


Hello, sounds like the rear drum rollers are in need of replacement which is causing the motor to get hot and cut out on the thermal cut out. It can be tricky to service if you not handy. Good Luck
