Question about Kenmore Dryers
I replaced the belt on my dryer a couple months ago but the other day the drum stopped turning. I checked the belt and it is in tact but the belt restrainer on the motor axle has melted and I need to replace it but I'm not sure how to get the old one off so that I can put the new one on. Thanks, Deneen

SOURCE: have a kenmore series 80 gas dryer that won't heat up. Model 110.72812100. I replaced the belt 2 days ago and it was working fine until today. It doesn't feel like it is even blowing any air. I took i
Does the motor run? If the answer is no check the door switch. If yes then check the thermostats and thermal fuse.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
