SOURCE: How do I fit a new drive belt for my Kenwood KVT1W Tumble Dryer

Remove the piece of angle iron from the top back of the LG DLE2514 and slide the top back. This exposes the screws holding the control panel on.
The control panel is held on by two screws, but they are at an ackward angle. The pannel has plastic tabs, when disengaged the panel pulls up.
There should be enough cable to set the pannel on top of the machine without disconecting anything.
Taking off the front pannel is easy at this point. Under the control pannel are four screws holding the front on. The Door has two screw holding it on and two alternates on the other side. The last two screws are at the bottom of the door opening.

SOURCE: where is the driver belt for kenwood tumble dryer

It is a long, narrow belt that runs from the motor underneath up and around the drum. You should be able to find an exploded view at www.appliancepartspros.com as long as you have the complete model number. Good luck.

Model WED5300SQ0 not heating and timer not working


Well with moving it around and all it could have any number of things happened. If it wont tumble, no lights, no heat or anything check that the plug has 240volts to it. then check the wiring going into the dryer may have broke wires or anything like that. but I would check the plug first if it has no power what so ever. If you check the plug and it doesn't have power check the breaker to see if it is tripped.

Maytag neptune dryer wont tumble


The standard drive system on all driers is a large belt that fits around the tub. These belt don't last forever and can brake or slip off if warn. It's not a super detailed job for someone with mechanical skills, but it will require braking down the machine to get to the belt.

Dryer Gets Hot..But doesnt Spin


I don't know what kind of dryer you have, top or front loading, but it top loading it most likely is the belt that goes from the motor & wraps around the drum.
