Hi i went into my dryer and pushed the tumbler the wrong way and heard something pop and now the tumbler doesnt rotate how do i get to the belt this dryer is very old but looks like this one .thank you oh...


You broke the belt. To replace it, pop the top ... use a screw driver. Remove the screws at the top of the front, remove the front, the drum will fall free. Take Pictures.

The belt that rotates the drum broke. How do I remove the Back to replace the belt ?


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
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 or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the screws that hold the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
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.

My kenmore dryer has become so loud it hard to use with all the noise


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine.
Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical consol with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
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 to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also 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.

Replacing dryer drum Kenmore Elite Electric Dryer


Usually from the front. Lift top and remove front. I can't image it would be worth replacing the drum. What is wrong with the drum? or do you mean the belt to drive the drum.

Two year old kenmore dryer has loose drum


Your problem sounds like drum rollers that are worn very badly.
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical box 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.
Check your rollers to see if they are worn or the bearing area is worn or flat spots, if they are worn in the bearing area or have flat spots on them replace them.

Element heats but dryer drum does not turn. It is a front loading Kenmore dryer. It seems the drum is off what ever it is that keeps it in place.


Your belt broke or just came off. The belt keeps it in line and turns the drum. If you're handy you can replace it yourself. make sure the thing is unplugged, it's 220 volts. take the back off. the belt goes around the whole drum and the motors pully. It takes some doing but it is doable. If it's broken, Order a new belt from the dealer and replace it. or if you're not so handy or just don't want to deal with it call a service man to replace it.

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.
