Changing dryer belt on kirkland/whirlpool dryer took apart dryer but dont see where belt suppose to mount.

Hello. The belt goes around the tub and the tension pulley. In fact, it is always a good idea to replace both the belt and the idler/tension pulley at the same time. J.

If you want a schematic go to and enter your model number. J.

Diagram for setting up belt on drum tenion

Replacing the Belt
  • Step 1 Put the dryer door-side down on the floor. This allows easier access to the back.
  • Step 2 Locate the center pivot suspending the dryer drum. If held by a clamp, removed any nuts or screws retaining the pivot axle.
  • Step 3 Move the pivot out of the bracket and slide the new belt inside the bracket.
  • Step 4 Replace the drum pivot in the bracket and reassemble the bracket.
    Looping the Belt
  • Step 1 Flip the dryer up so it is once again sitting upright.
  • Step 2 Locate the groove or wear mark the previous belt left in in the circumference of the drum.
  • Step 3 Wrap the belt around the drum in this groove or wear mark, with available slack at the bottom of the drum.
  • Step 4 Wrap the belt around the drive wheel located on the drive motor in the lower corner of the dryer.
  • Step 5 Insure the belt is snug but not biting the drive wheel. This indicates the proper size belt is installed.
  • Step 1 Reattach any clips or wires to the back cover.
  • Step 2 Reattach the back cover using the six-sided sheet metal screws removed earlier.
  • Step 3 Reattach the top cover. Close tightly so clips secure the cover.
  • Step 4 Plug in the dryer and turn it on to test the belt repair.
  • Step 5 Reattach the dryer vent conduit

    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.

    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.

    I need to change a dryer belt on GE model DBxR463EBoWW electric dryer we have the belt on but it is loose

    First, make sure you are using the proper belt. For your model
    DBXR4630WW that would be a part number WE12M29. Next, the grooves of the belt touch the drum. Now, looking at it from the front side, the belt goes from the left side of the drum directly to the motor drive pulley, then around the tensioning pulley, and then back to the bottom right back around drum.

    Need some assistance with a DDE7200SBLWW/model ge dryer

    If the dryer is getting hot but not turning, you most likely need a new drum belt. If the belt is ok then you will need a new motor.

    My hotpoint vtd20 dryer is vibrating when running. When stopped, with my hand i can barely turn the drum (not sure if it turned easily before) any advice?

    hi Step 1: Locate the belt by removing the back or front service panel. Depending on the type of dryer you own, you may have to prop up the drum to keep it from sagging. Don't let the drum hang; the bolts that hold it in the cabinet could be damaged. Don't remove any more parts than necessary.
    Step 2: Identify the belt. The old belt may be threaded around the idler pulley and motor drive shaft. Draw a diagram showing how the pulley is installed so you'll be able to replace it properly. If the old belt is worn or frayed, but not broken, leave it around the drum as a pattern for positioning the new belt; cut the old belt and remove it when the new belt is in position.
    Step 3: Remove the old belt from the pulleys and stretch the replacement belt into place. The new belt must extend around the dryer drum and the pulleys. The trick is to align the belt on the drum with the pulleys -- the ribs on the new belt go against the drum.
    Step 4: Once the belt is aligned, turn the drum by hand, if possible, to make sure the belt is tracking. You may have to reassemble part of the cabinet to do this.

    Some older dryers have a V-belt pulley drum drive. With this system, two or three pulleys of different sizes set the speed of the drum. To change this type of belt, decrease the tension on the idler pulley and install the new belt in the V-grooves of all pulleys. Then place the idler pulley back into position.
    With any dryer, make absolutely sure that you replace the old belt with a new one made especially for the dryer. Any difference in belts can change the speed of the drum and cause problems with other dryer components.

    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.

    remove the front panel(s) and the top panel. the belt will go around the drum to a drive wheel at the bottom. the belt turns the drum. You will have to route the belt around the drum and go either in front of or behind the drum to get the belt installed correctly.
