SOURCE: kENMORE SERIES 80 DRYER..The Tensioner use it or not and how?

To fit the new belt, you will need the idler pulley (tensioner)...

The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, pull it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).

If you still need help, I will try to provide you with a diagram shortly.
Good luck!

I found a dryer manual on the web that showed how the drum belt wrapped around the pulleys.
Problem solved.

New drive belt on LG dryer to loose?


belt goes around drum the to the right of the tensioner and then to the motor pulley. you have to move the tensioner to the left to get the belt to the motor pulley. so the belt goes to the top of the tensioner, and around it in a clockwise manner, to the motor, not just under the motor and under the tensioner.

Does a kenmoore 80 series have glides


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-PYE2300AYW/3048/0151200?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=PYE2300AYW
go here and you can see the parts in your dryer,if the model isn't a maytag pye2300ay then just put your model number in there and it will show you,kenmore doesn't make anything,you go by the model number if it starts with 110. it's a whirlpool,if say 417. it's frigidaire made but the maytag model you sent has rollers and i would say if you have a kenmore 80 series it has rollers,you can buy a kit that comes with the rollers,belt and belt pulley

I have a Kenmore Dryer it works but will not tumble i'ts a heavy dudy super capacity 70 series modle 110-64742400 you may need this to dwjr-ele-2406028-fm54


When the drum won't turn and the dryer is otherwise working it's usually due to a broken belt. Open the front of the machine to inspect the belt.

  1. Under the lint door remove 2 screws
  2. Use flathead screwdriver to pry up the top lid
  3. In the middle of the drum should appear a belt, if you see it, pull on it. If it is loose it's fallen off the belt tensioner. If there's no belt of if the belt breaks in your hands, you need a new belt.
A sample of the typical belt routing for your machine is available at the link below:

I have a used Kenmore Series 80 dryer & the drum stopped turning


Good day,
Not hard to do but check the 2 rear wheels that support the drum and change at the same time if needed. Inspect the belt tensioner as well.
Here's a good tutorial on the belt change.

My dle 5932s LG Dryer, has a belt squeek when it starts up. What should I do first to try to fix the problem.


It sounds like the belt is slipping due to a lack of tension which would require adjustment or the belt is worn and needs to be replaced. If the belt is shiny looking, it needs to be replaced. I hope this helps to answer your question. Please be sure to rate this response. Thanks!
