Loose dryer belt

I bought a new belt that is the same length as the one that broke. We only have one pulley that is on the dryer motor. The belt is loose and there is no where else to attach it to.

The interior tub is not rotating


You either have a loose or broke drum belt, idler pulley or tension spring are broke, or a loose or broke motor pulley. If you want to check yourself you need to remove screws below lint trap door, remove screws from bhind control panel on the outerback, take a flathead screwdriver or putty knife to the bottom front corners of the lid to loosen clips, and lift shell to view drum and belt.

Loud sqeeling noises when running. Sounded like a belt slipping. Dryer died all together and smells of burning rubber. Suspect a loose or broken belt. How do I change it?? --Dave


Check and see if the belt slipped off the motor pulley broke or wrapped around motor pulley. Check the idler pulley (large white wheel end of motor) Loose?

Need to install drive belt- lady kenmore dryer..loop designation


The belt probably broke first, which caused the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal. With no tension on the pulley it will commonly fall over. To re-install, follow these steps:

1. Loop the new drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. If this is a Kenmore dryer, it will be manufactured by Whirlpool. Refer to diagram H. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Belt Broke and pulley bracket came loose, where does pully belong


It goes into the front of the motor on the floor with the wheel to the left. You insert the belt between the idler bracket and loop it over the motor pulley.
The ribs of the belt need to be up against the drum for grip. It is best to have a person hold the drum while you do the pulley. Here is a page that shows various belt routings on different machines, yours is bottom right.

Belt broke


Buy a new belt. Insert the idler pulley into the slots under the motor pulley. The wheel should be on the left side of the motor as you face it.
Put the belt around the drum, then through the idler roller. Then over the motor pulley.

Replacing maytag dryer belt


looking at the back of the motor where the belt pulley is you would grasp belt coming down from the left side of drum then come across the top of belt pulley that is on motor shaft going clockwise around that pulley then continue back to your left and over the top of belt tension pulley going counterclockwise around that pulley this is when you will have to raise pulley against spring pressure to get belt on then release belt tension pulley make sure that belt is still in belt groove on the drum hope this helps ed
