Question about Kenmore 62722 Electric Dryer
Kenmore 70 series electric dryer MOD: 101.62722101. TYPE: DWSR-ELE-2406028 - Ordered and recieved new belt, re-assembled dryer, turned it on and the belt started burning again. Is there a tension pulley i need to wrap the belt around? What exactly do i need to do to install the new belt? Please help!
Yes, there is a tension pulley but I"m at a loss as to how you're burning the belt, if not routed around the tensioner... seems to me you'd have a world of belt slack.
You might check and see if you can freely spin the drum, or if it seems to be locked-up. There may be an obstruction, keeping it from rotating... it shouldn't require so much effort.
Just a suggestion... Good luck.

If the lid switch is defective, the washer will not function or work at all. It is located inside the washer main housing near the door frame. When you close the door, the switch is activated by an actuator. You have to raise or open the top or front panel of the machine to reach the switch. Replace if found defective.

Make sure that the problem is not a broken belt, or a belt that has slipped off of the motor pulley or idle arm pulley.
Look to see if the motor is running first, sometimes you cannot hear the motor running but it is.
Also you can check your breakers to see if one is kicked out.
This problem can also be caused by a faulty start switch.
If this is not the problem than it may be time to call the repairman

Make sure you have the correct replacement belt first. If you still have the old broken belt, measure it with a tape measure and do the same with the replacement. The new belt may be slightly shorter because the old one will have been stretched with use. Also check the part numbers again, but Kenmore changes numbers sometimes so that isn't always reliable.
The tensioners can be a little tricky sometimes. You can loosen it up if need be, then install the belt, hold the tensioner in place and tighten it back up. During re-installation, try to keep the belt as straight as possible around the drum so it doesn't take up more space, making it more difficult to install on the tensioner..

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

The Hum most commonly means that the drum belt on your dryer is probably broken
There is a simple way to test for this.
1 remove the clothes from the dryer.
2 put your hand inside the drum and turn it. If it is easy to turn, the belt is broken. If it is difficult to turn, the belt is good. You may be looking at motor problems.
Almost all of the time, it is a broken belt.
The link below has the full procedure for changing the belt.
Hope this helps,
