Okay...took me a while to get a good cross reference on this one. Drop the last four characters of your model number and place a "110." in front of the remaining numbers. That way the number reads 110.86921100. The "110" identifies the manufacturer. Your dryer is made by Whirlpool. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the model number I provided, there are a series of drawings on the next page showing an exploded view of the layout of your dyer. Does this look familiar to you? Under the "Cabinet" heading you will find the dryer belt listed as item number 56 (part number 341241). For a diagram of how the belt goes on, go to repairclinic.com and you will find a dryer belt diagram link listed under the "Repair Help" section. Locate the Whirlpool diagrams and you will use drawing "K". I apologize if this sounds like absolute madness. If you get confused, please post back and let me know. I hope this answers your questions.

The tensioner wheel needs to push on the back (the flat side) of the belt. It is a bit difficult to describe, but the way I do it is to loop the belt around the drum and motor pulley only (it will be very loose, but do it as though it wouldn't need the tensioner) then pull back the tensioner pulley and seat it to the back of the belt, so that when you release it, it removes all the slack.
Sorry I don't have a diagram I can direct you to. It is a bit confusing at first, but once you get it, you will be amazed at how simple it is.

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:

I hope this helps

Based on the limited details the motor is either humming instead of starting and running or the motor is running but the drum is not turning.
