Re: Can't get replacement parts back on Kenmore 60 series...
The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.

Some models you can replace by tipping dryer on its back. Tough part is sneaking the belt between frame and tub. Otherwise remove back panel, remove lint screws, remove control board. Now remove the shell and you can easily replace belt. This is a def diy project. Check youtube for general description. Whirlpool and roper would be similar.
broken belt......simple fix.......remove lint filter from top 2 screws remove.........insert screwdriver between top & front push down to pop top......1 screw on each side holding front on at top remove them....front will then pick up off the 2 remaining clips at the front bottom.....spin door around to the side belt should be laying in the bottom of the dryer or around the tub but broken.......hope this helps......check back.......
Take the belt with you to an appliance store and they will match it up. Much like a fan belt on a car. You won't necessarily need the model if you have the belt. Next, it sounds like your assembly is broken. If this assembly looks to be in pieces, you may need a new one.
it is not that hard to replace the belt if you have the front panel off of the dryer. place the idler pulley in the holes located below the motor pulley put the belt around the drum pull the idler back and the belt loops around the idler and onto the motor pulley
Yes, it will save you alot of money and work just fine. You will have to shut off the dryer, turn off the gas and/or electric(disconnect it to be sure it is power free). Look at dryer carefully as you may be able to access the belt from the lower front. The belt is easily available at Sears Parts Stores. Do not use it until fixed as it might overheat!
hi thanks for the question the belt has probably broken there should be a bottom panel use screw driver to pry the front on each side pry outwards remove panel now you should see a broken belt replace thanks the appliance dod
Hi Dave. The problem is the drive belt. They aren't that difficult to replace and can be done with just a few tools. I'll need the exact model number off of the dryer to explain how to gain access to it, though. The number can be found behind the door on the cabinet (it'll start with 3 digits then a decimal point then more digits, like this; xxx.xxxxxxx)
