Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.
All models use this diagram:
Style: Flat with ribs Installation Tips: Ribs against drum
There is a thermal fuse inside the dryer usually located behind the
back cover on the upper part of the combustion chamber. When this fuse
"blows" it turns off power to the whole dryer. This keeps your house
from burning to the grown, and you from dying. The fuse "blows" for a
reason, most likely to is lint build-up in the dryer and/or dryer vent
system. The good new it only cost a few dollars to get a new one. The
bad news is you need to find out why it "blew", the dryer got to hot
for a reason.
I could be wrong, but I don't know of a dryer that DOESN'T use a belt to turn the drum. If the motor is turning on, and the drum is not spinning, more than likely your suspicions are correct and the belt is broken. You can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the model number you have provided and look under the "Tumbler" heading for item number 5 (part #341241). The website also offers some helpful exploded view illustrations to assist in part location and installation.
Repairclinic.com carries the part at a cheaper price (item number 529597). Use the part number provided by the Sears website for your search criteria. Repairclinic also offers dryer belt installation diagrams. Just click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page and look under the "Special Features" section on the following page for "Dryer Belt Diagrams". Magic Chef uses diagram F.
