Kenmore Series 80

The belt broke on the dryer and the pulley assembly came off. Where does it go and how does it connect. Also, could you tell me the routing pattern for the new belt installation.

Thanks..Kari

You can find an exploded view at Sears Parts Direct, as well as get P/N's for the parts needed. I suspect the roller assembly came apart which caused the belt to fail.

You will need your Model number to locate the exploded view. If you can not figure out the routing from that, then order the service manual from Sears. It will show the routing and describe how to assemble and test most all aspects of the appliance.

My Kenmore 80 series gas dryer will turn on but won't spin


Hi, Sounds like the belt broke.
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

Dryer belt broke on my kenmore series 80


With the front cabinet panel off, place the drum against the back and on the rear rollers. The roller on the right will sometimes move toward the rear so reach from underneath and pull it forward. The rollers should sit in the groove. The drum will tilt forward but shouldn't fall off. Route the belt around drum, pulley and motor. Tilt the drum back and support it while placing the front panel back onto it's hooks. With the front panel on (don't screw it on yet), rotate the drum by hand to make sure the seal is not kinked and the belt won't slide off the pulley or motor. If all is well screw in the front panel and re-assemble the rest.
