Belt replacement I have a 70 series dryer I just took apart and found the belt broken. First question is how do I find out which 70 series model I have or are the belt assy. all the same. Second question is I found a part laying in the bottom that looks like a tension assy. for the belt only it has no wheels. I don't know if it is broken or if it is proper for this model dryer. If possible if you have a breakdown of the belt assy. that I can read it would be awesome. Ty.

Take the belt with you to an appliance store and they will match it up. Much like a fan belt on a car. You won't necessarily need the model if you have the belt. Next, it sounds like your assembly is broken. If this assembly looks to be in pieces, you may need a new one.

Kenmore Heavy Duty Dryer 80 Series

It may be too late for you, but here it is. I had the same problem, took the dryer apart, and found that one of the rollers was broken. There are two plastic rollers at the bottom rear of the unit. Call around to local parts stores to see if they have this part. It's easy to fix, just takes all day because you have to completely dissasemble the dryer.
