There is a set screw that you have to remove, use some wd40 spay it on the shaft, sometimes you might have to use a puller but for the most times after the wd 4- sets in remove the motor take a mallet and just go around the pully tapping on it lightly, but also remember to take the set screw completly out, it have a point on the end and if not out all the way it is still into the shaft

Hi, I have a Whirlpool (WFW8300SW) wash machine and drier stack on that was installed just 2 years ego in my app ,by Developer in Donovan 1055 Richards St., Vancouver .just the belt of washer is cut...


its pretty easy to repalce the belt all ya need to to is get to the back of machine,remove the back plate andslip the belt over the motor pulley and rotate it onto the main tub pulley. BUT getting to the back of it seems to be the problem . The dryer is botled to the washer and depending on where it goes in your apartment it will come out easy as one piece,only you know how tight it may be.Their is absolutly no way to estimate what a local service company may charge you would need to call them for estimate over the phone most service companies DO NOT GIVE FREE IN HOME estimate
THe part number for the belt is 8540101 it is the genuine part and can found online at
the appx weight of the dryer is 150 pounds or 68 kilos

I wish you the best of luck

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.

We took our dryer apart to get to the belt and the idler pully was just laying on the bottom can you please tell us how it is supposed to be

not sure what brand this is or a model due to vague description here...but if you have gained access to the bottom of dryer there normally is a slot for the ideler pulley to connect into or a shaft the pulley actually goes over...the belt will arap completely around tub and the come together and actually go to motor shaft while the pulley is a tensioner to keep belt tight and also as a glide...repost with the model of unit and someone should be able to help you out as i am about to shut down for the night... i hopw this helps you out a little if not like i said repost we will fix you up...

Unit containing motor and washing tub suddenly jump around dislodging drive belt. Is it a bareing problem or gear box.

More information on the problematic unit would really help but the jumping of the tub isn't a tub bearing problem although it can definitely lead to one. The jumping could be due to an unbalanced load, the unit itself not being properly leveled or if it is a floating tub then one or more of the support shocks may not be positioned correctly. Also if this is a new unit then make sure all shipping bolts and/or supports are removed. The bearings in the belt pulleys or the tension pulley could be bad and also make sure the belt properly installed.

I would like to be able to get to the tensioner pulley. The drier is knocking when running. How can I get to that pulley to look at it? Drier model PYG2300AWW thanks

disconnect all vent hoses and cords, flip unit on its back, you may need to remove a inspection cover depending on model......most likly the knock is coming from a worn drum roller or the felt bearings are worn out......poss a chunk gone out of the belt or the tentioner arm spring has lost its tention. hope this helps....

Pull the tire off the passenger side. The wheel well cover comes off and gives access to the pulley. No special tools.

I have a Whirlpool Duet HT washer [12-4-2003] and I'm on my 3rd pulley and 4th belt. I am convinced This is a inherent design flaw. I've used Loc-Tite and the nut loosened, but the last time I used gorrilla glue. The nut didn't come loose but the pulley failed and now I need giant vice grips or I may have to cut the nut off with my Dremmel. My hypothesis is when the drum is overloaded it puts stress on the shaft/pulley connection and the softer metal gives way. Over time the key becomes rounded and the pulley starts to wobble, thus leading to belt failure. My next version. Im considering drilling into the shaft and installing a cotter pin to keep the nut from backing off. Either way the problem originates with the pulley design.
PS. I will never buy another whirlpool product. 070498b6-8a05-400f-aab6-d2f7fbf10685.jpg

Need a diagram to change heating element and sensors

unplug the drier pull it out from the wall about a foot facing the drier take a small putty knife and insert it about 3" from the edge push the knife in till you feel the spring clip push in on it and lift the top then repeat that on the other side fold the top back till it leans against the wall look in the drier on the front edge of the front door panel there are two 5\16 in screws there remove them and un plug the light switch and the door switch assembly .grasp the front door panel and give it a quick snap forward to disengage the retaining clips and the door from the drum remove the door .Lay on the floor reach in and remove the belt from the idler pulley and blower motor pulley .Then while standing at the side of the drier grasp the belt with one hand and the front of the drier drum with the other and **** up sharply on the belt to release the drier drum from the rear drum bearing then remove the drum out the front on the rear you will see the heating element there will be one sensor on the heater pan that's the safety or high limit thermostat the tiny one on the drier body is the thermal overload the one on the vent at the bottom is the operating thermostat but its rare to have a problem with them if the drier is not heating the first thing i recommend is check your voltage and connections and don't assume just because its running its getting full voltage check it with a meter driers will run on 110 but will not heat without 220

Belt installation

repacing the belt on a neptune is simple. unplug the unit and move it away from the wall.. now remove the 4 screws holding the access panel in place. loop the belt over the end of the motor shaft so that the grooved side of the belt catches the grooves on the shaft. now simply feed it around the tub pulley. if you find the belt keeps coming off you might have a bearing problem tht has caused the tub to shift. look for fine plastic powder, almost dust like, that would be the pulley eating into the back of the tub
