My 1992lumina Euro,We replaced drive belt that broke but new drive belt squeaks, why? how do I fix it?


The belt is not tight enough and is slipping. Or something is not turning and making belt slip. Try tightening the belt to stop squeal.if that doesn't work, take belt off and check all pulleys and make sure they spin freely. Hope this helps

Should my drum stop turning when i push it after the belt has broken


Dryer drums aren't always the easiest to turn but not difficult either. If you know for a certain that the belt broke and the drum is still reallty hard to turn then you probably have something caiught in the blower wheel area, like a sock or whatnot

Creda tech came out, can he tell if machine belt is broke by just listening and turning the drum.


An experienced engineer would able to tell if belt is off, or if the main drum bearings were going, simply by spinning the drum by hand.

The drum does not spin, the blower works, the gas will fire up, belts look to be in tact but may be loose?


Most gas dryers have a tensioner on the drive belt under the drum a metal bar with a teflon pully that is spring loaded to tension the belt. Try spining the drum by hand if it spins freely the belt may have come off the tensioner or it may be streched. If it doesn't turn the drum rollers or bushing may be bad. Without a make and moddel # it's hard to say
Hope this helps

Drum stop turning, dryer goes on and heats


Sounds like a broken drive belt. Take off the front cover and look for a long thin belt off the drum or broken in two

Fitting a new drive belt to a hotpoint aquarius


Remove lower rear panel, tilt washer forward, getting someone to help, and fit belt round motor pulley, then fit belt round drum pulley, slowly turning the drum pulley round as you feed the belt on, it is very tight, and you might think the belt is to small, but this is normal, as the belt stretches, just persist, but be careful you do not trap your fingers. Good luck.
Please rate my solution.

My dryer drum stopped turning. The dryer will turn on


it does sound like the belt is broken. you will need to access the inside of the dryer by removing the front. they all come apart differently. Make and Model would help me tell you more.

Drum won't turn


it came off the tensioner or it is broke. pull the belt and see if it is not broke. if it is still loose around the drum, then it just came off the tensioner.

look at the manual on how to put back the belt with the tensioner.

tnx 4 using fixya,
