Normal 0 Hi, UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off.
There should be instructions that came with the belt. I will try and explain how this goes on. The idler pulley fits in a slot right in front of the motor. Put the belt over the drum with ribs touching drum. Now, thread the belt through the idler pulley wheel and bracket and set the belt on the motor pulley. The ribs should rest in the grooves on the motor pulley.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know. Please rate me performance so that others as well as myself will know how I am doing.

Thanks
Vic

Hi, This dryser only has 1 belt. When you chacked the belt, was the belt located in the middle of the drum?
This model has an idler pulley that is no longer being used. They have went back to the roller style idler which is easier on the belt.
Raise the top and then remove the 2 screws holding the front to the cabinet. Remove the front cabinet and locate the idler next to the motor pulley. Look at the belt while you have the front off and see if there is any bad spots in it.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Your belt is not installed correctly. The weight of the clothes is making it slip.

Whirlpool not blowing or tumbling


check to see if belt is still on drum. might have broke. thats the only thing that would cause the drum not to rotate but still should have air flow. the blower wheel is hooked up to the motor itself. your problem might be the motor itself has gone bad. if belt looks good then your motor is not turning.

Whirlpool Ultimate care ii Dryer wont tumble


If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:
Belt,
Motor,
Door switch.

Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.
If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

Remove the belt,
Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing,
Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

Go here to see a diagram for your model:
one of two types. "H" or "J"
