How do a replace the belt on the drum of my indesit washer dryer


REMOVE THE SOCKET FROM THE WALL OUTLET.
To replace a belt that passes over the drum on a dryer you need to be able to pass the new belt over either the back or the front of the drum. This entails removing the front panel to clear the whole drum or loosening off the rear bearing support to pass the belt under it so that the belt can be passed over the drum. From there it is just a case of passing the belt over the motor pulley and replacing all the parts. Select which will be easier on your machine. After replacing everything but the top panel, make sure that the belt is correctly installed by turning the drum several revolutions by hand and ensuring that the belt is running true and still on the motor pulley. Replace the top cover and you are set to go.

How to fit a belt for a indesit dryer ISL70c


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please follow the step-by-step procedure---

1. Remove the front panel.
2. Reach underneath drum and behind motor to locate idler pulley. Push idler pulley to left to release drum belt tension. Remove the belt from the motor pulley.
3. Remove the drum and belt from the cabinet.

1-- Prepare for replacing the dryer belt by lifting the lint-screen cover on the top of the dryer. Then remove the lint screen. Skip this step if your lint screen is inside the door. Remove the 2 Phillips screws inside the door instead.
2-- After removing the lint screen, lift the cover and remove the screws that hold the lint-screen housing to the dryer top.
3-- Slide a putty knife between the front panel and the top near a corner. Lift the corner and repeat on the other side.
4-- To remove the lower panel, insert the putty knife between the panel and each side. Then twist to release clip.
5-- Place a few wood blocks under the drum. These support the drum when the front panel is moved away from the sides.
6-- Loosen the screws that secure the bottom of the front panel to the dryer sides. Do not completely remove the screws.
7-- Remove the screws that secure the front panel to the dryer sides at the top. These are accessed from the inside of the cabinet.
8-- Lean the front panel away from the sides and slip the new dryer belt over the drum. Then re-secure the front panel.
9-- Check that the lip on the back of the dryer drum fits properly against the seal on the rear bulkhead of the dryer.
10-- Locate the original position of the old belt, and slip the new belt in place. Keep the grooved side of the belt down.
11-- Push the idler pulley toward the motor and loop the doubled-up belt around the idler pulley. Slip belt around motor pulley.
12-- Rotate the drum counterclockwise a few turns to check belt tracking. Then replace remaining components and test run.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Sounds like the dryer tub is getting loose, like a muffled thump


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers may be worn and in need of being replaced.
If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

My kenmore dryer model#110.64672400 has power but won't spin


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
