To open the dryer, remove screws under the lint filter door/ handle. Pull top towards you and lift on front, top should pop up and rotate back. There will be two sheet metal screws one on either side of the front door panel, remove them and pull front out and clear of the drum, an extra hand can really help with this. Lift on t he door panel and either disconnect the door switch connector or just turn it out of the way. Look under the drum, if the idler pulley does not have a roller on it, you should replace it. If it does have a roller, check for signs of wear and seizing, only then should that one be replaced. While you're in there it is always a good idea to clean out the lint and check the drum rollers. When putting back together, the drum may cause a problem seating on the front door seal. you may need to rotate the drum back and forth to work it into position.

Serpentine belt not broken but will not run on pulleys engine starts but belt stays still


Did you recently replace the belt? If so, did you get the right belt ( not to short or to long). If not, was there any noise before it stopped moving? If the belt hasn't been touched, then it sounds like another component has seized and isn't allowing the belt to move. You could have oil, transmission oil, or anti-freeze on the belt / pulleys allowing it to slip. Belts become glazed with age and also need to be replaced. I would start with checking all the pulleys for smooth noise free operation, then clean all the surfaces, and change the belt. I like the Goodyear Gator belts.

Serpentine belt tensioner broken


These are one of the worst ones to replace. Below is a picture and instructions on how to remove the whole assembly/belt tensioner. If it does happen to only be the pulley that needs to be replaced, where the red arrow is is simply a bolt that needs to be removed and the pulley should come right off. Hope this helps.

The belt that drives the blades for cutting has broken and I need to replace it. I have a Craftsman LTX1000 lawn tractor and I've misplaced the manual. The belt is 96" long. Not sure where to...


With the mower off.
Look on top of the deck.Find the pulleys for the blades then find the engine pulley.There should be one more pulley that is the tension pulley.Watch that pulley as you pull the engage blade lever,while still turned off.The belt will go on the blade pulleys,and the engine pulley,it needs the tension pulley to push it tight.So you need to make sure it goes on the inside of the tension pulley.If you get the belt on and it does not engage,just remove it and replace it on the opposite side of the tension pulley.

Installing the belt around the dryer drum and pulleys. I have a broken belt and a loose pulley at the bottom of the dryer. How to I get the pulley on? Where does the pulley attach to create the proper...


you will have to take the drum out to see where the tentioner was inserted , it is in line with the motor pulley, should be a couple holes it fits into.
putting the belt on is easy , with the lined side of the belt down on the drum take the slack at the bottom with a finger holding the belt , move the belt toward the tentioner until it touches the tentioner pulley
then with your other hand help bend the tentioner pulley with the belt on it until you can touch the motor pulley with that finger , slide it off your finger onto the motor pulley and the belt is on.
let me know if you have any questions.

Installing belt


here are the step by step instructions from the owners manual for your machine.
Disconnect cleaner from electrical outlet. WARNING: Agitator brush roll can start suddenly. Unplug cleaner before turning it over. Replacing Flat Belt Place handle in low position and turn cleaner over so bottom side is facing up. Remove the 6 screws as shown with a Phillips screwdriver. Lift off bottom plate. Replace belt if it is stretched, cut or broken. To check the flat belt. Removing Bottom Plate Removing Belt Positioning Belt Remove used belt from large pulley and discard. Reposition bottom plate and 6 Phillips head screws. Tighten screws securely. Insert agitator brush roll through belt and position belt in groove (A) on agitator brush roll. Inspecting V-Belt The V-belt is designed to last for a long time and is not normally replaced. However, if the V-belt is cracked, gouged or broken, it should be replaced. Slide flat belt off large pulley. To remove V-belt, slide back of belt over pulley (A). Then firmly pull on belt and “snap” it out. Discard used belt. To install new belt (with lettering on outside of belt), slide back of belt over pulley and pull front of belt toward groove next to pulley. Belt will “pop” into place. Flat Belt: What to Buy Use only genuine HOOVER belts with your cleaner. When purchasing a new belt, ask for Flat belt - HOOVER part No. 40201-271. V-Belt: What to Buy Use only genuine HOOVER belts with your cleaner. When purchasing a new belt, ask for V belt - HOOVER part No. 40201-200.
If you can't get the answer from this post, send me a message and I will try to walk you through this. I hope it helps.
