How do i get the belt around the motor pully wheel on a white knite cl637wv


If you can't push the tensioner pulley back far enough to allow the belt to go around it, disconnect the tensioner spring, route the belt, then reconnect the spring. If it's a question of having adequate strength to push against the spring and still have a hand free to route the belt, find something to jam against the tensioner to hold a bit of slack in the pulley. Make sure the jamming tool (large screwdriver, block of wood, etc.) is sturdy enough to hold securely, and well-braced. An ill-timed slip could cause severe hand injury.

If your dryer does not have a belt tensioner mechanism, the motor bracket probably has belt adjustment slots in it. In that case, loosen (but do not remove) the motor mounting bolts that go through the slots, push the motor over a bit to give you the slack you need,route the belt, then pull the motor back to tighten the belt and retighten the motor bolts. Sometimes a tight belt can be rolled onto the pulley by starting it on one side of the pulley and turning the pulley by hand while pushing the belt along in the direction of the turn, but it is better to mount the belt with slack in it; excess stretching causes premature failure.

Replacing the drive belt on a hotpoint tdc30p and need a diagram of how the belt goes round the drive and pulley system


wrap the belt around the drum first then the slack at the bottom wraps around the motor shaft. Then it has to go either left or right side of the tensioner wheel, but the flat side must touch the tensioner wheel(not the ribbed side of the belt). You know you got it right when when there is tension on the belt when it is correctly installed. I dont have diagram so this is the most simplistic way of describing how to install it.

I'm trying to replace the belt on a Hotpoint VTD00P tumble dryer. I've successfully removed the sides and front, fitted the replacement belt around the drum but just can't get it to stretch enough to fit...


There is a tool available, but it is not worth the expense of buying it for a one off repair.
Best way to do it is to geta long piece of steel rod, or a long screwdriver, and place it behind the belt, lever the belt down and over the motor pulley, it is difficult, so persist with it and you should get the belt on.
If you can slacken the front securing screw holding the motor, down this will give you a bit more leeway to fit the belt.
Again it is difficult, but I have done it this way on every occasion I have fitted a new belt.

Dont know how reeve the belt around the drum the belt is two slack


From the rear of the dryer the back of the belt has to be on the right side of the idler pulley, then around the motor pulley. If the back of the belt is against the left side of the pulley looking from the rear the belt will be too long, not enough tension.

Need to replace drum belt


Most dryers have a tensioner pulley that the belt needs to go around to keep it tight. The belt goes around the motor pulley and the drum, but it goes around the tensioner pulley in a way that would keep it tight (you also need to release the tension on the tensioner to get the belt around it) If there's not a tensioner pulley there has to be some other means of putting tension on that belt, look around the the other pulleys that the belt goes around.

Need help replacing the belt on a dryer.


The tensioner wheel needs to push on the back (the flat side) of the belt. It is a bit difficult to describe, but the way I do it is to loop the belt around the drum and motor pulley only (it will be very loose, but do it as though it wouldn't need the tensioner) then pull back the tensioner pulley and seat it to the back of the belt, so that when you release it, it removes all the slack.

Sorry I don't have a diagram I can direct you to. It is a bit confusing at first, but once you get it, you will be amazed at how simple it is.

you will have to take the drum out to see where the tentioner was inserted , it is in line with the motor pulley, should be a couple holes it fits into.
putting the belt on is easy , with the lined side of the belt down on the drum take the slack at the bottom with a finger holding the belt , move the belt toward the tentioner until it touches the tentioner pulley
then with your other hand help bend the tentioner pulley with the belt on it until you can touch the motor pulley with that finger , slide it off your finger onto the motor pulley and the belt is on.
let me know if you have any questions.

I need to fit a new belt to a Creda Tumble Dryer


There should be some kind of tensioner around the motor or one of the pully's. The other problem could be that the belt you bought is the wrong one for your model. If you still have the old belt, measure the new belt against the old one and the new belt should be slightly smaller. I hope this info helps.
