Re: Is it hard to change the belt on a dryer
Yes it could be the problem. Its faily easy to do, just take the front panel off. unscrew to dryer vent and sometimes the control panel. Then pop the top up and the front panel comes off. its all right in front of ya from there.

Hello Hannah Kottman - Sounds like the tub is unbalanced from either a bearing/pulley suspension problem or the unit has broken something off in between the tub and outer portion of the unit. This is not a typical DIY job since the entire back panel of the unit needs to be pulled off and diagnosed. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
sounds like you have abad motor,try spinning the drum by hand,if it moves most likely it's the motor,or the belt broke and is jammed in the motor stopping it from spinning,or if it's hard to turn something could be stuck in the blower wheel but it's the motor making the noise.you need to get in there and check it out.the motors are easy to change out on a kenmore dryer,also next time send the model number.let me know what you find
Chances are it's a broken belt. If you hear the sound of the motor running and your dryer is heating, there's nothing else but the belt.
Changing the belt yourself is pretty easy if you can use a screwdriver and have a little mechanical ability. The new belt is around $20, and you'll save big if you don't call a service person to do it for you. A good site with a step-by-step illustrated procedure for changing the belt is here. They also sell parts, or you can find the belt locally at any appliance parts store.
It is fairly simple,but I have changed a few.you may want to pay someone for first change and watch how he pulls everything apart.to replace a belt is not expensive.I charge anywhere from $98 to $115.00.everyone has diferent prices
