Look on the container the belt came in. Usually there's instructions. Google your unit for a manual if you don't have one.

Placing drum belt onto motor pulley


pulley on motor has grooves that must have the belt grooves in them. Make sure that the belt is not kinked but is smooth around drum. Spring tensioner with smooth pulley must take up the slack and keep the drum belt tight. sometimes back access panel is easier than reaching from in front.

I am trying to change the belt on my electra tumble dryer but cant get it onto the spindle as there is a spring loaded pulley wheel also?!!!1


put the belt onto the tension pulley first then use the large diameter drum to assist you in in LEVERING the belt on with tensioner spring in place . Failing that remove and replace spring with vice grips (put spring back on as it came off ).

I am wanting to replace a drum bearing, and I've gotten the dryer top panel and front panel off, but I don't see how to release the drum belt (which is okay) so I can get the drum out. How to do...


On the bottom left side next to the motor you will see a small plastic wheel (idler pulley) which the belt is wrapped around. The wheel is attached to a L-shaped piece of metal which is known as an idler spring arm which is made out of spring steel.

Move the arm one way or the other and you will notice the belt tension getting looser. Push the arm further that way until you can get the belt off the pulley an motor. Use caution as the spring arm has torque on it and could snap back.

Once the belt is off the motor and idler pulley you can then pull the drum out. You will need to lift the drum up slightly since the back sits on drum wheels(the groove on the back of the drum). Take the drum and belt out together.

Once you have made the repairs, install the drum in reverse order.

Note: Before removing the belt, make a diagram of how the belt goes around the motor and pulley for future reference.

Hope this helps you out.

The belt around the drum of my dryer broke. i have a new one just need some tips on puting it on. Also when i pulled the drum out there was a white/clear piece, round in size, and a metal clip laying on...


don't know what the pieces are that you found on the floor of dryer,check the front panel for the clip,might have popped off when you took the dryer apart or these things fell out of clothing that were put into dryer.now the belt,rap it around the drum with the ridges touching the drum, smooth side up.stick the drum in place and spin it a few times till the felt in the back is lined up and the rollers are lined up on the drum,stick your head inside the drum and hold the drum up with your shoulder,just pinch the belt together and pull it under the pulley and attach it onto the motor shaft,that's it.picture your pants belt floded in half,around four inches from the folded part pinch the belt together and you'll have a loop on the end,your fingers are the bottom part of the pulley and the loop end is the part of the belt that connects to the motor shaft.hope this helps,let me know how you make out

Dryer is scraping as it turns. Is there a belt that is worn? Started doing it after 3rd load. Did the same last time we used it.


The dryer drum is suspended between the front panel and the back panel by extrusions that protrude into the front and rear of the drum. There are thick felt pads attached to the protrusions that support the drum and isolate the metal of the drum from the metal of the front and rear panel protrusions, allowing the drum to rotate freely. A large belt encircles the drum and a pulley attached to a motor mounted under the drum. A spring "thing" applies tension to the belt to prevent the belt from slipping. If the noise is a metal on metal sound, check the condition of the felts. Other causes of noise have been stretched belt slipping on drum, weak spring "thing" not keeping belt tight, motor bearings dry (oil) or worn (replace motor), and pulley on spring "thing needs lube (lube). Hope this helps.

How do i install a belt on a whirlpool LHE5700 dryer


This instruction works for most any dryer--- it should for yours too:
1) The big trick for a dryer belt is getting it around the drum... the rest is easy. You'll either take the top off and work with the drum to ease the belt around the drum- the front of the drum simply rests on slides/rollers depending on the model
You may need to remove some piece from the front to make this happen too-
2) re-fit the belt then by first taking the inspection cover off (or the whole back of the unit) and working the belt to the back of the drum, near to the pulley and the motor...
3) then, work to unload the spring, place the belt around the pulleys (it should be pretty obvious how to do this) and then release the spring mechanism--- this will tighten the belt between the drum and the drive pulleys.
Good luck!!!

Drum not spinning & springs wrong way round?


To replace the belt hold in place on motor & feed onto pulley. The springs are on correctly but it seems one of the suspension legs is not doing its job. This may have occured when turning upside down & would explain distorted door seal. Thanks again for using fixya.
