Route the belt around the drum, pull the spring loaded idler pulley to the postion that requires you to hold it there..
put the belt : 1 through the motor pulley and around the idler pulley, or 2. around the idler pulley which ever works to keep the tensioner tight. (Idler pulley, tensioner same thing its the pulley not on the motor.
Once you put the belt on the durm, pull the idler pull so there is tension on it it should be clear how it goes.

Step by step instructions on how to install clothes dryer belt

First you take the top off by opening the door. There are two screws in the top part. Second there are two screws that hold the front on, on both sides. You take them out. Finally, this is a important step, remember how the belt goes back on. The Idler controls the tension on the belt. Next after the tension is remove the drum out. Put the new belt around the drum and then around the motor pulley. Then move the idler to the right I think and the move the belt past the idler and that will gain your tension.

I'm not sure how to put the new belt on my mayag dryer could you email a pic of the routing of the belt

Sorry no pic. Pop the top, pry it open gently at the crack betweeen the top and the front - look first for screws.

remove the front.

the drum will come out.

Put the new belt around the drum, through the tensioner on the bottom and around the pulley on the motor.

Reassemble the drum mechanism, put on the front, pull the top down.

Works but doesnt spin. Where is the belt located. I think that might be the problem.

To access your drive belt, you need to take the front cover off. Unplug the dryer first.
There should be 2 screws on the front cover in the lower front area. Remove the screws and tip the bottom of the front panel forward until the top clips are frree of the top panel. Be careful there is a door safety switch wired. You can disconnect the wire and set the front panel aside.
Look under the drum in the dryer and you'll be able to tell if the belt is broken or loose.
IF you need to replace it, you'll need to take the 4 screws that hold the front drum support/duct assembly loose from the dryer case. Once these are removed you can pull out the whole gray assembly and slide the drum out.
The new belt can be purchased online at if you want.
To put back in, you can put the belt around the drum and slide it back in. It should have a grooved side and a flat side on the belt. Put the flat side toward the drum. It routes around the motor pulley and a tensioner pulley. It may take a bit to figure out the routing, but the key is to put the belt into the indentation ring on the drum to allow you to get it around the pulley and tensioner... if you leave the drum sticking out of the machine about 8 inches, you can reach thru the drum and hook the belt in place, then slide the drum in and pull the belt out of the indentation and onto the larger circumference of the drum. You may have to twist the belt to get the flat side next to the drum.
You can then put it all back together...
Good luck... be patient and you can do it.

How do i get new belt on ge profile dryer ?

This is actually not that complicated. Unplug the machine. Lie it on its back. Remove all screws holding the front panel on. Disconnect the doorswitch wires don't worry you can cross them either way when replacing them. Remove the front panel. If you look down to your right side bottom corner you'll see the drive motor and tensioner spring. Remove the old belt. Slide the new belt over the drum, making sure the correct side is in contact with the drum, you usually can tell by looking at the old belt.
When it comes to the drive motor and tensioner(use care not to let the tensioner fall out, it only sits in a slot on the bottom panel. After you have the belt in its groove around the drum, worm it over the drive gear and pull the tensioner back enough to grab the belt.

GE Gas Dryer Replace the belt Model # DDG8280G

Usually there are one or two panel in the front that are held by some screws. Once removed the top panel is usually attached to the front panel and you can get a screwdriver and release the plastic push in retainers. Prop the top up and the drum is exposed. The belt usually goes around the drum down to a drive pulley on the bottom of the machine. You will need to route the belt around the drum in the front or back to get it routed correctly.
