SOURCE: dryer wont turn

Yes, it will save you alot of money and work just fine. You will have to shut off the dryer, turn off the gas and/or electric(disconnect it to be sure it is power free). Look at dryer carefully as you may be able to access the belt from the lower front. The belt is easily available at Sears Parts Stores. Do not use it until fixed as it might overheat!

Kenmore dryers are configured in several different ways as far as the location and routing of the dryer belt. For drawings of how the belt is configured on your dryer, go to Repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link. On the following page locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Scroll down to the Kenmore section and refer to diagrams H, B, or K. If you are not certain, please post back with your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) and I can determine for you. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: can't find kenmore 80 series dryer drum belt

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.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
http://www.partselect.com/
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Also for a manual I will include this website:

Good luck,
I hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a kenmore 70 series gas dryer. It won't

Check the thermal fuse and thermostats first, then the ignitor and the valve coils are the next possibilities.

My Kenmore 800 series dryer won't start when i push the start button. It does start to spin but stops after i release the start button. Any ideas what the problem might be??


This dryer has a broken belt switch. If the drum turns then the belt is not broken but the broken belt switch could be. The start switch itself could be the problem. This video shows how to get into your machine:

Kenmore 80 series dryer. was working fine, now


Hello. When ever a dryer will not turn the first thing to suspect is a broken dryer belt. lift the top on your machine and visually inspect the belt. If it is broken, it is easy to replace. Joe

Can't get replacement parts back on Kenmore 60 series dryer.


The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.
