The idler arm has a white wheel. the belt sits on the wheel (both sides). Push down on the the wheel / arm and the belt should now go around the motor pulley. groove side of the belt is against the drum. So it should look like this, if your looking at it from back right side of unit, left side of belt against white wheel, press down and fit the loop around the motor pulley. Good luck!

Most dryers are tension idler pulley directed but must first go around the grooved pulley on the motor shaft. make sure the idler goes on the smooth side of the belt and the grooved side of the belt is in the grooves on the motor shaft.

Changing the belt


goes around idler pulley and motor. idler pulley fits into slots on bottom of dryer and the belt tension holds it in place. looking at it from the front and going clockwise the belt goes around the drum and then around the motor pulley and thru the idler pulley. in fact if you put the bottom loop of the belt thru the pulley from the left you then loop it around the motor pulley.

Need to replace drum belt


Most dryers have a tensioner pulley that the belt needs to go around to keep it tight. The belt goes around the motor pulley and the drum, but it goes around the tensioner pulley in a way that would keep it tight (you also need to release the tension on the tensioner to get the belt around it) If there's not a tensioner pulley there has to be some other means of putting tension on that belt, look around the the other pulleys that the belt goes around.

How to wrap belt around belt and drum tensioner


These are a pain to do. You have to put the belt around the drum and at the motor, there is a pulley on a spring device.Twist the pulley toward the motor, until you can get the belt onto the motor pulley. Release the spring loaded pulley and it will automatically tighten the belt.

Dryer belt has come off tensioner.


The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, loop it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).
With the belt and idler pulley in place, it should look like this...

Cheryl the belt goes in line with the pulleys. 1st Put the belt around the drum. 2nd put the belt around the pulley on the motor. 3rd pull down on the idler pulley and set it so that is pushes on the back side of the belt. Remember the ribs on the belt go against the drum. When done the pulley will take up the tension on the belt. Hope this helps.

Zanussi tumble dryer. no.TC7114W


loop the belt around the drum.
slide the belt down the drum directly over the motor pulley
loop the belt around the motor pulley
pull the tensioner pulley hard to the end of its travel against its spring
wrap the belt around the tensioner pulley
release the tensioner so the spring pulls it against the belt
rotate the drum by hand to ensure the belt is aligned and does not pull offf the pulleys
reassemble case
dry clothes
its easier than it looks seeing a broken belt in the bottom of the case.

Replacing maytag dryer belt


looking at the back of the motor where the belt pulley is you would grasp belt coming down from the left side of drum then come across the top of belt pulley that is on motor shaft going clockwise around that pulley then continue back to your left and over the top of belt tension pulley going counterclockwise around that pulley this is when you will have to raise pulley against spring pressure to get belt on then release belt tension pulley make sure that belt is still in belt groove on the drum hope this helps ed
