Re: whirlpool clean touch dryer

Sounds like the wire that goes to the flame sensor switch if it is gas there is a black wire and a white wire that goes to it its on the left side of the gas valve on the flame housing tube / pipe

If you have a whirlpool dryer with the lint filter that comes out of the top cover you would need belt #341241, Whirlpool Dryer Drive Belt 341241
That kit looks like a front-lint package...probably contains a #66157 belt. Whirlpool Dryer Drive Belt 661570V

Dryer belt keeps breaking

Did you check the idler pulley to be sure it wasn't damaged in some way, like a break in the plastic wheel or metal causing it to cut away at the belt until it breaks

Need model number or part number for whilpool dryer

The model number for your dryer is usually located on a plate or sticker inside the door on the body of the dryer hidden by the closed door.

The most common (but not the only) belt number for Whirlpool dryers is 341241 and the idler arm for that common dryer has tabs that fit into the floor beneath the motor drive pulley. Take a loop of the belt with ribs inside the loop and pass it through the opening below the roller and loop it around the motor pulley. If it's the most common unit the end result should look like the image below for Whirlpool:

Good Luck

Whirlpool dryer len2000pw0, starts fine, heats up, but will not spin?

Hi, you will need to change the belt. Here is how:
Normal 0 , UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off.
There should be instructions that came with the belt. I will try and explain how this goes on. The idler pulley fits in a slot right in front of the motor. Put the belt over the drum with ribs touching drum. Now, thread the belt through the idler pulley wheel and bracket and set the belt on the motor pulley. The ribs should rest in the grooves on the motor pulley.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know. Please rate me performance so that others as well as myself will know how I am doing.

Whirlpool Dryer wont spin

If it heats but doesnt spin, most likely the belt. May not be broke though. May have fallen off. Let me know if you need more help.

Kenmore dryer

The belt you will need for that unit is part # 341241. These belts will fit almost all Whirlpool and Kenmore models except for the DOTT (Dryer Of Tomorrow, Today) dryers. A DOTT dryer is a Kenmore model only, and has a front kick plate and the lint filter in the door.
