How do i fit a new belt to my white knight cl447 wv dryer


Pop the top (spring clips) remove the front - use care with the wires. Find the belt tensioner on the floor of the dryer. Do a complete cleaning of the inside. Put the new belt around the drum get an assistant to help you hold the drum while you thread the belt through the tensioner and place the tensioner in the tensioner holder slots sin the floor. Put the front back on, snap the top back down.

Allow 2 hours for this job.

Dryer drum isnt turning? What needs to be fixed?


Sounds like your belt either broke or came off (or maybe the belt tensioner fell off)- Try turning it on as if it worked okay-do you hear a motor spinning?

Clear yourself a lot of space to work in.

Lay the dryer on its face, and remove the back panel.

You should find your belt- is it whole or broken?

Sometimes if the belt breaks, the tensioner will also fall out of place.

If you give me the make and model of this dryer I can help you further.

Hope this helps.

Trying to install a dryer belt on a kenmore dryer model 62622101. don't see how ya thread the belt thru the existing bracket


the belt goes through a tensioner which fastenes to the floor in a set of slots. Get the belt through that tensioner then around the motor pulley. Put the drum on the wheels in the back, lift the front (you need a helper) and put the front back on and fasten, replace the top.

Much easier to say it than to do it ... but you got this far, I have faith you can finish the job.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

How to reinstall Idler Pulley and belt for kenmore Dryer Model 110.66112501


First, assuming you have the drum out, there are two slots on the bottom plate of the dryer, hook the end of the idler pulley into the left slot with the angle as you look at it up and to the left. as you set the pulley in place the second slot will match the prongs of the idler pulley. With the idler in place, now put your belt around the drum (you should see a polished spot where the original belt rode and wore off the paint). Then use the belt to help guide the drum install. Set the drum on the rollers in back, keeping the drum level to the dryer. It helps if the whole dryer is tipped back against a wall at about a 45 degree angle to get the drum in place, but that makes your aligning the belt a pain at the same time. I suggest have the dryer at an angle to put the drum in then place it level to align the belt.

You'll need to use both hands to get the belt in place. First thread the belt under the idler pulley wheel in the opening under it. Next you'll need to push the idler wheel as far up and to the right as you can to get the tension all the way off as you hook the belt around the motor. Once on the motor, slowly let the idler down into place.

If everything is aligned correctly it will work just fine. Just make sure when you put the bulkhead in again that the drum rides on top of the slider pads and that the drum rotates freely with only the motor tension on it. 839edf2.jpge839dbf.jpg

Front loader Electric Dryer the belt


It's not that hard, but it can be a little tricky. First UNPLUG the dryer or turn off the gas to it, whichever is applicable.

Then, assuming you have the new belt, you will open the lint filter door. There will be two screw heads visible. Remove them. Place a knee in the center of the dryer just below the top. Place your hands at the front corners and **** hard while pressing with your knee and lift up on the top of the dryer. Once you do this, tilt the dryer top back until it rests on the wall behind the dryer.
Next remove the two bolts at the top front corners. Disconnect the wiring harness connector for the door switch and lift the front panel of the door up and away from the rest of the dryer. You will notice the drum rides on the front panel and will fall down.
Take out the old belt. Loop the new belt around the drum in the same approximate position that the old belt was riding. Take a small loop of belt and push it through the tensioner while lifting the tensioner to relieve tension off the belt. Then loop that end around the motor pulley.
To re-assemble the dryer, reverse the directions for taking it apart. Remember to hook up the wiring harness. You will have to lift the drum into place to make sure the felt on the front and rear ride correctly on the guides.

Good luck!

Can't Put Belt On


You have to remove the front of the dryer to
access the drum. First unplug the dryer.There are screws at the bottom of the front to remove the lower section. Once you remove that you can get to the screws for the door section. The front of the drum rides on the inside of the front panel so when you remove the panel the drum will drop down. Try to keep the drum in place with something to hold it up. Remove the old belt and place the new belt around the drum. Slid the belt back to where the belt used to ride and then loop the belt around the motor and the tension wheel. Make sure the tension wheel is tightening the belt. Hold up the drum and put the front panel back on. You may need a helper to hold things while you do this. Rotate the drum by hand and make sure it moves smoothly. Plug it back in and give it a try. I hope this helps. Any questions feel free to ask. Please rate me so I know if I'm Helping. Thanks.

Roper dryer


it hooks in the back 2 set of slots just under the motor assy, with the U- turn portion of the bracket facing to the right, so the belt will be fed through under the roller, and by applying pressure (pushing the roller to the right loop the belt around the motor shaft, and release. tension should now be applied to the belt assy and the idler will be locked in place
