That belt part number is 341241. Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way.Use the belt routing diagram found HERE.

My mother in law has a kenmore dryer that is 15 - 20 years old. It will start but the dru will not turn she says it does not have a broken belt


Verification of the belt in place would first need to be done, then check to see if the motor is running.

The belt could have jumped off

if the belt was replaced recently, It might not have been the right belt.

Kenmore 500 series dryer won't start. Only 2.5 years old.


turn the drum with your hand,if it feels hard to move you could have something stuck in the blower wheel that is below the lint filter and behind the duct that the filter slides into or the belt could be jammed,if it moves try starting it it might start you could have a flat spot on the motor and most likely you'll need to replace it,if it'shumming it's the motor making the sound

Kenmore Soft Dry,


Try popping the lid and inspect the belt. I did one for friend. On his when the belt broke, the dryer quit. It has a built in safety switch. Sorry don't know the series. His was 15 years old plus...

Old (approx 30 years) gas dryer. It's been great.


The fron comes off. Two screws located toward the bottom front (where the front panel angles in) hold the front on. Then you need to remove the front bulkhead/duct work.

Putting the belt on the idler pulley is the trick. If you get this far and need more help, let me know.
