Looking for how to refit drive belt on my LTH1742

The drive belt goes around the transmission pulley (located under the cooling fan) then attaches to the engine. You will then need to loop the around the idler set. You will find a "v" shaped pulley and a flat pulley. The flat fits on the outside of the belt and the belt fits down into the "v" pulley. You need to remove the tension of the idler set to fit the belt.

Belt is loose around the dryer drum

The way to visually see if the belt has broken or not is to 1) unplug the dryer. 2) Remove the lint screen on the top of the dryer. 3) take the two phillips head screws out where the lint trap is. 4) with a flat head screwdriver pop the top of the dryer up by sliding the driver inbetween the top and front of the dryer and pry upwards a little. 5) You'll now see the drum, if the belt is not around it its broken, and if it's visible try to lift it. If it taught, its good. IF THE BELT IS BROKEN OR LOOSE CONTINUE TO NEXT STEPS 6) on the left and right upper inner sides of the dryer you will find two screws, one on each side, remove these and the front should be easlily remove. 7) once off you'll be able to easily see the motor, the belts idler pulley, and everything else.
Leave the drum in the machine. Now, directly in front of the motor on the floor of the dryer you will see two slots. This is where the idler pulley will go. You'll notice on the pulley at the bottom of the bracket a piece of metal sticks downward. This will sit in the slot closest to the dryer wall, and the end of the bracket will slide into the other. You'll want to slide the end in first. Now with the pulley in place take the belt and put it around the drum tread side down. To hook the belt around the motor pulley you'll have to pull the idler pulley towards closest dryer wall and place the belt around the motor pulley. Slowly release the idler pulley and thats it. Put it together and your done.

I've bought a drive belt for a Hotpoint 9342W Dryer but I can't work out how to fit it can you help
here is a diagram on how the belt is fitted.
Move the idler arm forward to allow room for the belt and thread the new belt around the idler arm pulley and over the motor pulley. When you have it in place, slowly release the idler arm pulley to place the tension back on the belt.
After this, turn the drum around slowly by hand to make sure that the belt is in the right place, and is situated to the right side all of the way around (no twists in the belt). If the belt falls off during this, you'll need to try again. If not, you're good to go.
I hope this was helpful. I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further assistance. Good for you for fixing it by yourself.

    Drum won't turn

    the dryer belt has broken or the motor is defective, start by checking the belt, here is how to replace the belt.

  • Look up your specific model number and buy a replacement belt from a Maytag dealer or a third-party supplier of replacement appliance parts.

  • Unplug the dryer and remove the exhaust vent tube from the back.
  • Pull out the lint screen. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws around the lint screen housing.
  • Slide the blade of a flat screwdriver underneath the top panel at one of the front corners of the machine. Pry the top panel up slowly, being careful to not nick or scratch the finish. You should hear a snap when you've lifted the panel high enough; that noise is just the latch releasing.
  • repeat Step 4 on the other front corner of the machine and then lift the hinged lid up.
  • Firmly grasp the top edge of the front panel of the dryer. Wiggle it to the front and back slightly as you lift upward, and the panel should come loose from the latches holding it in place.
  • Slide the front panel forward while your assistant supports the inner drum. Pull the front panel completely off of the machine.
  • Reach underneath the drum and pull out the broken belt.
  • Slip the replacement belt around the drum while your assistant continues to support the front of the drum. Turn the belt so the grooved side fits into the visible grooves around the circumference of the drum.
  • Get on the floor again and locate the motor underneath the drum. You will see two round pulleys; the larger one is the motor pulley and the smaller one is the idler pulley. Grab a section of the slackened belt, fold it in half and push the loop underneath the idler pulley. Wrap the loop around the motor pulley.
  • Push the idler pulley to the side, away from the motor. The grooves on the pulley should fit just right with the belt, and moving the pulley over should create tension in the belt all the way around the drum.
  • Slide the front panel back up against the machine, working with your assistant to fit the front of the drum into place. When the drum is secured to the front panel, slide the panel straight down into place. You may hear or feel it lock into place when you've pushed down far enough.
  • Lower the top panel and push it down until it snaps into place. Replace the screws surrounding the lint screen housing and put the lint screen back.
  • Reattach the exhaust vent tube and the electrical plug.

    We are having a problem getting the belt back on as it appears slack can you offer any suggestions. Zanussi Condensordryer Dual Temperature. TC7102W.

    I will suggest that you put the belt on the motor first, then route it around the idler arm pulley, then place over the drum.
    Look on the frame of the dryer for an indication of wear where the idler arm bracket fit, also there should be a spring attached to the idler arm bracket. Once you have the idler arm bracket in place, hook the spring to it and see where it will fit on the frame. There should be also an indication of wear where the spring fit...look very closely because the wear may be very minimal.
    I will include two websites for further help, they have chat assistants 24/7.
    Good Luck,
    I hope this helps.

    My Whirlpool dryer belt broke.

    You should be able to reuse the idler pulley unless it is physically broken.
    The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side and loop it around the motor pulley.
    Let me know if you need more assistance.
    Good luck!

    KENMORE SERIES 80 DRYER..The Tensioner use it or not and how?

    To fit the new belt, you will need the idler pulley (tensioner)...

    The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, pull it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).

    If you still need help, I will try to provide you with a diagram shortly.
    Good luck!

    Belt fitting for a WF000 hotpoint washer?

    It should go around 2 wheels; one is the pulley of the motor, where there is a good groove. The other goes around the tub wheel which is big one. First fit to the motor wheel then fit to one side of this big wheel & turn the wheel to engage it gently. The belt should have a "give" of only half an inch, or it will be too loose or too tight.

    If helped pl rate.........
