My dryer's belt broke and I cant find the part


WE12X1001, WE12X1000, WE12M29 are the three different belts used on GE Dryers and if you go to
https://www.geapplianceparts.com/GEApplianceParts/Dispatcher and do a search on these parts you will be able to purchase them directly from GE. You will need to look at your belt and pull the number off if your belt in order to assure you get the right one. If you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.

I need to know to route my dryer belt on my GE dbrl33ee2ww dryer as the belt slipped off and I did not see the correct path


Hi Roy, W/D here. I wrote this earlier for another person, but it works just as well twice.

You already have the diagram! (Bear with me).

Make sure that your power is off.


If you look carefully at the drum, you can see where the old belt was running.
Place your new belt in that position.
Now, place the belt over the motor pulley (It is in the same plane as the belt position on the dryer).
Pull the tensioning pulley past the belt, and ease it into place.
Roll the drum several revolutions by hand, just to get the belt tracking completely right.
Put it all back together and you're done!
Best regards, --W/D--

How do i change belt


Take off the back of dryer. There should be a panel with about 6-8 screws in it. You will put your hand towards the middle of the drum on the outside and feel a groove. This is where the belt will ride. Just slide the belt over the drum and into the groove and then around the pulley on the motor. Your particular model may have a tensioner device on it that has a pulley on it as well. You would trace the belt on this pulley as well. Put the belt against the pressure side of the pulley. This would give it tension on the belt at all times. Let me know how you do with this.

I need to change a dryer belt on GE model DBxR463EBoWW electric dryer we have the belt on but it is loose


First, make sure you are using the proper belt. For your model
DBXR4630WW that would be a part number WE12M29. Next, the grooves of the belt touch the drum. Now, looking at it from the front side, the belt goes from the left side of the drum directly to the motor drive pulley, then around the tensioning pulley, and then back to the bottom right back around drum.

Kenmore dryer


The belt you will need for that unit is part # 341241. These belts will fit almost all Whirlpool and Kenmore models except for the DOTT (Dryer Of Tomorrow, Today) dryers. A DOTT dryer is a Kenmore model only, and has a front kick plate and the lint filter in the door.
