Dryer belt does not apear to be broken but cannot see what pully is broke or other problem


if the belt isnt broken,and just loose then check your "idler" pulley,its on a spring steel bracket by the motor and it keeps the belt tight thats more than likely the culprit from your description

My amana electric dryer starts (makes noise, heats) but the drum does not turn or tumble. What can I do?


there is a big belt inside that turns the drum , your belt maybe slipped off or broke.

Won't spin or start


Sounds like the screen/sock combo got the tub in a bind and the drum belt broke.

If you want to pursue replacing the belt, let me know.

Amana Dryer belt instalation


Remove the power to the unit and the bottom access panel. Remove the front bulkhhead where the drum sits on by undoing four screws one for each corner.Verify felt seal on exhaust fan cover is airtight on flange of duct. If seal is installed improperly air flow will be restricted which can cause poor dryer performance.Belt must be positioned around cylinder between center and rear bafflescrews with the ribbed surface against the cylinder. You gotta push up on the spring loaded idler pulley the easily slip on the belt to the motor shaft. make sure that the ribbed part of the belt wraps around the drum and motor shaft and not kinked.
