Re: How to replace dryer

Very difficult job. will seem like the new belt is to small. u will need plenty of patience and band aids. take the front off the machine leavin the drum supported only by the rere bearing. slide belt around drum and onto motor pulley keeping the spring loaded pulley on the inside of the belt.

If this is an electric tumble dryer,
the way to replace the belt is from the rear of the machine,
remove all the screws on the rear silver panel, which gives you access to the internals of the dryer.
And yes the drum wont turn properly if the belt is broken.

I hope this helps you.
If so please leave a vote or comment.

Have a great day

The belt is broken and we need a replacement for it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Go to any of these sites and enter your model number:

If you have difficulty locating your belt I need your complete model number and will use those same sites to find your belt for you. There are 2 different sized belts for a whirlpool dryer depending upon the model number. 27 inch dryer and 29 inch dryer.

Download this manual to help you change the belt:$FILE/4322260.pdf

The order of removal is the toe panel, top and then the front panel to gain access to change the belt.
Toe panel (page 15 / pdf file page 20)
Top panel (page 14 / pdf flie page 19)
Front panel (page 19 / pdf file page 24)

Make sure you inspect the drum seals (felts) and the the drum rollers in the process of changing the belt.

The manual link I passed is for the 27 inch dryer but access is exactly the same for the larger dryer.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Dryer turn on but would not spin

When the dryer will not spin the most common cause is a broken dryer belt.

If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
