Go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Get Repair Help" link. Select the "Dryer" category, followed by "Click here for a dryer belt installation diagram". There are numerous illustrations that you can use to assist you with the proper routing of your dryer belt. If the model number is correct, refer to diagram H. I hope this helps you.
Go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link. On the following page, click on the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Depending on the model Kenmore you have, you will refer to either diagram H, B, or K. If you have trouble being able to determine which diagram you should use, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER so I can assist you further. I hope you find this information helpful.
The thing that you should now when taking on a repair on a "skyscraper" like thses, is that they are a monster to repair!! There is no "adjustment". The manufacturer (Whirlpool from the looks of your Model #) has a "fixed" tension on these units so they cannot be tampered with. You would need to purchase a repair manual that matches the unit you have to take you step-by-step. Plus, you can't just go by the size. The belt has to be ABSOLUTELY EXACT as the original. Did you get the belt from Sears or a third-party?
If you are referring to the felt "belt" that wraps around the end of the dryer drum, this is referred to as a "drum seal". The dryer will not tumble at the required speed and make a lot of noise without it. If you can please post back with a complete model number (located around the door opening on Kenmore), I can explain how to replace and maybe provide you with a part number.
Kenmore dryers are configured in several different ways as far as the location and routing of the dryer belt. For drawings of how the belt is configured on your dryer, go to Repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link. On the following page locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Scroll down to the Kenmore section and refer to diagrams H, B, or K. If you are not certain, please post back with your complete model number (located on a nameplate around the door opening) and I can determine for you. I hope this helps you.

Okay...took me a while to get a good cross reference on this one. Drop the last four characters of your model number and place a "110." in front of the remaining numbers. That way the number reads 110.86921100. The "110" identifies the manufacturer. Your dryer is made by Whirlpool. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the model number I provided, there are a series of drawings on the next page showing an exploded view of the layout of your dyer. Does this look familiar to you? Under the "Cabinet" heading you will find the dryer belt listed as item number 56 (part number 341241). For a diagram of how the belt goes on, go to repairclinic.com and you will find a dryer belt diagram link listed under the "Repair Help" section. Locate the Whirlpool diagrams and you will use drawing "K". I apologize if this sounds like absolute madness. If you get confused, please post back and let me know. I hope this answers your questions.
The belt you will need for that unit is part # 341241. These belts will fit almost all Whirlpool and Kenmore models except for the DOTT (Dryer Of Tomorrow, Today) dryers. A DOTT dryer is a Kenmore model only, and has a front kick plate and the lint filter in the door.
