Go to your local appliance store. Not a Sears or anything like that but a owned locally company and they will have one for you or at least order it for you

Does the dryer have more than 1 belt?


Very few dryers have more than one belt. Whirlpool and Kenmore make a dryer that has 2 belts, one for drum and one for the blower wheel.

Route mower deck belt on 46" deck with 3 blade pulleys & 1 ideler pulley


what is the problem?
What direction (CW or CCW) does the engine drive the pulleys looking at it from above?
Do you have the correct length belt for it?
One thing is certain; if the idler floats (you cannot lock the position of the idler and it is spring loaded), then the slack end (non loaded side of the belt), is where the idler is positioned.
You need to know what direction the drive is to route the belt.

see the next steps and fix it. God bless you

Not all will apply to every dryer. Check our video page for more style dryers.

Rollers

Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time. You will need to disassemble the dryer to check these. Some dryers use rollers in both the front and rear.

Belt

The Belt should be replaced if you hear any noise coming from it or if there is any cracking, glazing, or grooves worn out.replace the belt along with the idler pulley.

Idler pulley

Dryers have a tension or ideler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides

Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace the glides and bearing houses if necessary. Put hand inside drum near front and push up there should be no play.

Rear drum bearing

Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace the rear bearing when they're worn. Put hand inside drum near rear and push up there should be no play.

Blower wheel

Your dryer's blower whells pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermosta ts, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace the blower whell Many times the blower wheel is making the noise and it is commonly mistaken for the motor.

Motor

The motor may be making noise. The easy way to check is to remove the belt and turn the dryer on if it is noisy replace the motor

25/8 with tracks; used my blower for 5 hours yesterday. during last 30 minutes tracks weren't going into gear that well, and at very end, tracks not moving. Advise?


The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn. If you remove the cover in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belt closest to the motor. This is the transmission drive belt.
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the belt. You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced. On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't
I didn't see what make and model this blower was but track drive tend to wear out the drive belts faster than the wheeled models.
If this is a craftsman you can get parts through searspartsdirect.com. With other makes you can get parts through jackssmallengines.com
Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Craftsman Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!

I have an older kenmore 70 series dryer. the belt broke and im trying to figure out where the pulley is supposed to go and how the belt is supposed to go


If you are referring to the tension pulley that keeps the belt tight on the drum, it is common for it to come loose when the belt breaks because there is no longer any tension holding it in place. Just follow these steps to reinstall:

1. Make sure the drive belt is looped around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place with your left hand, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H.


If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate around the dryer door opening) so that I may be able to confirm your dryer configuration. I hope this helps you.

The drum does not spin, the blower works, the gas will fire up, belts look to be in tact but may be loose?


Most gas dryers have a tensioner on the drive belt under the drum a metal bar with a teflon pully that is spring loaded to tension the belt. Try spining the drum by hand if it spins freely the belt may have come off the tensioner or it may be streched. If it doesn't turn the drum rollers or bushing may be bad. Without a make and moddel # it's hard to say
Hope this helps

on the base in front of the motor you should see a couple slots, put the weel on the left, and the bottom
lip of the ideler pully will click into one of thosd slots
to keep the tension, pull a loop of the belt under the wheel on the ideler, that loop then catches the motor hub

I'm having a problem re-fitting the drive belt to my Simpson Sirocco 455 tumble dryer. After installing the belt around the drum, drive pulley and tension wheel, I align the front end of the drum with the...


After some mild swearing, I made sure that I had the belt around the drum aligned (in the same plane) as closely as I could with the drive pulley and tensioning wheel. I think this was partially achieved by placing the belt as close to that position as possible before lining up the front end of the drum with the cabinet opening, and then turning the drum from the front (through the open door) very slowly clockwise (the direction of its normal rotation) to give the belt "time" to align itself fully with the smaller pulleys. A short prayer and a few minutes later, the machine was humming away with all parts playing their "part" in beautiful harmony - without the dreaded sound of a thin black drive belt cluncking to the floor of the metal cabinet.
Cheers,
Andy B.

How to remove the Blower wheel on an Amana Dryer?


You need to remove the blower assembly from the dryer.

First unplug the dryer.

Take care when you take the dryer apart, watching for SHARP edges

Take the dryer apart, removing the front panel and then the inner front panel of the cylinder. Before you go any further look at how the belt goes around the cylinder and on to the motor and idler pulley.

Now take the cylinder out, and remove the blower assembly, you will need various hand tools to hold one end of the motor and turn the blower wheel off. the blower may have an direct arrow on it to loosen.

While you have it apart vacuum out all of the lint, and put a drop of oil on the bearings of the rear wheels and idler. Blow all of the lint out of the motor.
