Remove the back cover.

Remove the belt and drum.

Place the new belt around the drum and sticky tape it to the position of where the old belt was seated.

Insert the drum back into the cabinet of the dryer and reconnect it to the electric motor.

After connected to the motor, remove the sticky tap and reassemble.

Job done.

Dryer belt broke


Usually you would remove the front of the dryer so you can put the belt aournd the open end of the tub. Here is a link to the Whirlpool web site.
http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?searchTerm=LER4634J&siteCd=WHRCOM&userType=Servicer Take a look at the parts list and the second page with cabinet parts. Note how the front comes off. Usually some screws under edge with door open, maybe a few more around the drum opening and lint screen.

Changing dryer belt on kirkland/whirlpool dryer took apart dryer but dont see where belt suppose to mount.


Hello. The belt goes around the tub and the tension pulley. In fact, it is always a good idea to replace both the belt and the idler/tension pulley at the same time. J.

If you want a schematic go to searsdirect.com and enter your model number. J.

My dryer belt from my Whirlpool model number lgr7646dq1 snapped off and I need a diagram how the belt goes back on. I already purchased a replacment belt but do not know how it goes back on. Thanks Richard


the belt number 341241, that should be packaged with a diagram as how to wind it around the motor shaft , and the idler pulley.youll need to pull the front off the machine to gain acees to the drumm area, fom there you can drape the belt over the drum, "red side out"might be a difficult to try to hold up the drum and try to secure the belt without the use of another set of hands( the front panel that you removed holds the weight of the unit normally) afeter you get the draped belt around the ider pully "snaps into the lower cabinet so that you can pull hte tension to the right. after fully extending the pully to the right wrap the belt around motor pully and allow the idler to release and hold tension on the belt. it will only go on one way! only tricky the first time , youll get it!!!

Whirlpool #ler5636ez2 need diagram for belt instalatiion


Unplug the dryer...
  • Remove the lint trap and the 2 screws holding the vent to the top panel (be careful not to drop them down the vent!).
  • Reach around the back and pull the top panel toward you. Insert a putty knife from the front on each side to release the top panel clips. Lift and flip the top panel back.
  • From the inside, remove the 2 screws holding the front panel to the cabinet. Lift the front panel straight up off the front panel clips (hooks) and swing it aside.
  • You should now have access to the belt.This diagram shows you how to loop the belt through the idler pulley.

To replace the belt...
  • Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum.The idler pulley fits into the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side and loop it around the motor pulley.
To reassemble, follow steps in reverse.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Good luck!

Dryer belt replacement


To replace the belt, you have to take the front off the dryer and lift out the drum. With the new belt, place it around the drum and with the drum in place put the excess belt through the idler pulley or bracket (depending on your model), then around the motor pulley. You push the bracket or idler arm toward the motor to get the "loop" of the belt around the pulley on the motor. Hope this helps! Paul Hoffmanns
