SOURCE: belt and tensioner

lets see what we can do. wrap the belt around the tub assy. the little white roller w/ metal arm (called the tension pulley) needs to be installed .there should be a few holes directly under the motor pulley on floor of unit.two sets of holes you wanna use the set to the rear of unit. insert the prongs into the left rear **** and then pull the roller portion to the right.(it should hook the back prongs of idler into the rt side holes. tension holds this into position so it will fall out if you let go) theres an opening in the metal under the roller mounts, e**ugh room to slide the belt through.heres how it works, install the idler as described above, feed the belt through the opening in the idler from the left and under roller through hole pull the roller and pulley hard to the right.(its springy and as long as installed correctly ** worry of popping out) and loop around the motor pulley.let go of the pulley. and the belt should remain tensioned. it will only go on on way. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: belt replacement on kenmore washer

One of the transmission bolts has to be removed to be able to remove the 1" spacer . You also have to turn the pulley which moves the wig-wag to move the glide foreward to drop the shaft of the drive. Very difficult unless you've done it before .

SOURCE: Kenmore M#110.24292300 motor broke during the spin

Based upon the Model Number that you provided, this unit doesn't have a belt.

It is a basic Top Load, Direct Drive machine.

See the Sears Parts Site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.24292300

The problem is likely the Motor Coupler. See the section of the Sears site with the motor and gearcase.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

How do you replace the drive belt in a kenmore dryer model 88042


Pull the fron off. Remove tub, should have a spring loaded idler pulley next to the motor. Make sure that it is not broke and spins freely. Also check tub support rolers on each side. They shoule spin freely. If ok, put belt around tub, install tu. Put belt around spring loaded pulley. May need a hand holding tub while you install pulley. Put front on. Make sure the fron of cover fits inside the tub seal. Good luck. email me with issues, bobby.crochet@lyondellbasell,com.

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 searsdirect.com and enter your model number. J.

I don't know how to get the belt on the small pulley


If the design of this unit is the water pump is in the front directly below the motor, you have to install one of the pump plastic legs between the belt. when installing new belt. There are torex screws holding the pump onto the motor. This is assuming your belt burnt off or broke and you are replacing the belt. The small idler pulley can be worked on by running the belt on the big pulley when reinstalling the motor Try not to stretch the spring for the idler pulley,
hope this helps

Need to install drive belt- lady kenmore dryer..loop designation


The belt probably broke first, which caused the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal. With no tension on the pulley it will commonly fall over. To re-install, follow these steps:

1. Loop the new drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. If this is a Kenmore dryer, it will be manufactured by Whirlpool. Refer to diagram H. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How do you install a new belt? its hard to fit around !!


Youmust loosen the motor bracket bolts and this will allow the motor to swing. Put belt on the motor pulley and feed the belt onto the large drum pulley and at the same time turn the drum pulley so that the belt pulls onto the pulley groove. Put some tension on the motor to tension the belt - not too much tension though. Holding the motor & belt tension, tighten the motor bracket bolts - job done. Should take no more than twenty minutes to complete.

Washer belt is loose, & seem to slip at start of spin cycle.


there are several drive belts for this model... check here to see if the one you are fitting is the correct one... also,is the tensioner siezed? causing the tension to be too slack therefore allowing the belt to shred at speed?

Fixing a belt to a Zanussi Condenser Dryer


when you say "only one pulley...", are you counting the motor as one? there should also be a tensioner pulley...look for it somewhere near the motor.
