Look up "Tension Pully & Belt Diagram" on internet for your dryer on google or Dogpile. You should be able to find how to
put the Tension Pully back where it belongs & how to thread the belt through it and back on to the motor drive shaft. Check different sites for the right picture for your dryer. Here's a picture to get you started. Good luck,

Cant install my belt back on my idler pully on my kenmore 80 series dryer . the idler pully i have is a piece of metal below but it does not open up so the belt will go through. i am missing something but...


Howdy: Check for the bolts that hold the pully on. Loosen the bolts and the pully should stat to open. You may have to put on the belt then install the pully. Look close at it. Good luck - Doug

Belt came off, don't know how to put belt back on


The platter should lift off and allow you to see the motor, drive pully's, and the belt. You should be able to put the belt back on the platter pully and then around the motor pully and the just align the platter back up with the spindle and gently lower it back into place. If the platter won't just pick right up off the spindle, look for three screws that hold it down to a triangular shaped support underneath. When you remove those screws, the platter should lift right off and allow you to see the drive pully and motor and belt. Good luck, and be gentle.

KENMORE DRYER MOD# LEQ9858LWO WILL NOT TURN BUT HEATS


If you hear a humming, then it is probably a broken or slipped belt from the motor to the drum. There is usually a pully on the shaft of the motor, a tensioner pully on a spring, and a groove on the back of the drum that the belt rides in. If this belt breaks or comes off track, the motor will still spin but the drum won't.

You will probably need to take the front or back off of the dryer (varies by model) to expose a view of the belt, and once you do this, it will be easier to see if the motor is turning or the belt has broken or slipped.

If the belt has slipped, be sure to inspect it for wear, and replace it if worn. Otherwise, it will slip again and you'll have to repeat the process.

Replaced idle pulley but drum wont spin when clothes are in it


Ok, when you removed the front cover to gain access to the idler pully, did you make sure that the drum didnt slip off one of the two roller wheels in the bottom rear of the dryer. If you get one of those roller wheels jammed and not in the track right, they will jam up. Look down at the bottom, grab the rollers, and pull them forward to be sure they are in the groove of the drum. Also, are you sure you relooped the belt correctly back around the idler pully? The best way to loop the belt is to place the idler pully in the correct position, then drop the belt down in front of it, loop the belt under the idler pully, push it back to tension everything, then take the loop and go over the motor pully (should be pretty tight). See if one of those solutions will help. Also be sure that you are properly getting the drum in the right position over the front seal (front should go on pretty easily, if not, reach your hand in the door, and lift up on the drum to center). Thanks and good luck!!!!
