Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Checked belt, looks ok, just slipped off the pulley

I put the belt back around the pulley, does that mean it has stretched out and still needs to be replaced? And, most frustrating I can't put the door back on, what am I doing wrong? I studied it. Can you give me a step by step from the clamps to the springs and the order of things. Model is LG5801XS

Well you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way. Use THIS to configure belt routing

How do i get the belt around the motor pully wheel on a white knite cl637wv


If you can't push the tensioner pulley back far enough to allow the belt to go around it, disconnect the tensioner spring, route the belt, then reconnect the spring. If it's a question of having adequate strength to push against the spring and still have a hand free to route the belt, find something to jam against the tensioner to hold a bit of slack in the pulley. Make sure the jamming tool (large screwdriver, block of wood, etc.) is sturdy enough to hold securely, and well-braced. An ill-timed slip could cause severe hand injury.

If your dryer does not have a belt tensioner mechanism, the motor bracket probably has belt adjustment slots in it. In that case, loosen (but do not remove) the motor mounting bolts that go through the slots, push the motor over a bit to give you the slack you need,route the belt, then pull the motor back to tighten the belt and retighten the motor bolts. Sometimes a tight belt can be rolled onto the pulley by starting it on one side of the pulley and turning the pulley by hand while pushing the belt along in the direction of the turn, but it is better to mount the belt with slack in it; excess stretching causes premature failure.

Belt drive rubber


Remove the rubber mat. Underneath the mat, you will see holes on either side of the table. You should see the belt around the center of the platter, if it's any good. If it has fallen off, the belt has stretched beyond spec. If it's still on the platter(table), though on of the holes mentioned above, if you rotate the platter, you find find the motor pulley. Pull the belt from the platter center and slip it back over the motor pulley. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

My 2001 pontiac montana is having problems with the power steering i checked the power steering fluids are ok but when i am driving and turning i have no power steering and makes a loud noise


Check your engine belts, you may have a seperate one for the powersteering,

if it is a serpentine belt, it may have stretched and may need to be replaced.

it could also be the belt tensioner, when the engine is off, the belt should,

be tight, check your belt or belts for cracks, it may not be grabbing the pulleys,

it could be slipping, get some liquid soap, put it in a spray bottle and spray

your belts, then start the engine and turn your power steering from right to

left, if the noise stops, you need to change your belt. if it does not , then

it could be the belt tensioner or a pulley that is binding. good luck!

Refitting the belt between the drum & motor


There is a tensioner on the floor. It may have slipped out ... pop the top off and remove the front of the machine. Sprin clips hold the top.
Around the drum, through the tensioner and around the pulley. Reassemble

Broken belt on a Whirlpool dryer


Fix it yourself, and you do not need to remove the tub. Put the belt around the pulley and pull the tub towards the belt. You may have bought a belt that is too short. But upon a belt breaking they will stretch pretty bad also

hi The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:

Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.

Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.

Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.

Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.
