Question about Dryers
The ribbed side goes down on the drum. I lay the new belt on the line that was made by the old one on the drum. I make sure it ain't twisted.You cannot see how to hook the belt because you are sitting in front of the dryer on the tailgate of a truck or on something up high like a good work table. I reach inside with my big old fat arms and I make sure the belt is on the bottom of the motor pulley. I raise up the idler arm, say a cuss word or 2 and I wrap the belt over the top of the idler pullley so that when I let loose of it it holds the belt firmly in place. I rotate the drum slowly to make sure everthing is kosher. If I am working on a dryer with a rear access panel it is much easier. But I don't believe yours has one.
