Amana dryer belt

I have an oder amana electric dryer (Model # ALE331RAW). The drum turns when empty but not when loaded. I'm assuming it is the belt slipping. What is the best way to replace it? Thanks!

You will probably have to open it up from the top and/or back. If the belt looks alright (it probably won't, though), check the belt tensioner. Carefully observe how the belt goes on and around the tensioner before replacing.

first, make sure all your seals are in place, like door and drum. if they are ok then disconnect the vent pipe on back and try to dry a load. if it does then you have a blockage at the venting.

My Amana dryer gets clothes stuck between the drum. how do i fix this

Sounds like the drum bearings are worn out. this leaves a gap for the clothers to stick into. You will need to replace them. Check the support rollers also when you have it apart.

Amana dryer does not run but i can hear the motor faintly

Sounds like the belt is either broken or slipped off the pulley. Remove the back of the dryer and find the motor. Look to see if the belt is still attached to the pulley. If not, look to see if it has slipped form the pulley and is hanging from the drum, or if it is broken. More than likely, regardless of which it is, you will just need to replace the belt.

Drum turns but not when it is fully loaded

Do you hear a loud hum when fully loaded? Or does it go away when empty?
