Your belt will use one of these configurations. Just right click on the picture, copy & paste it into a document or save as and them open it with a photo viewer.

    The picture link was removed. Put the belt around the drum. Torque the pulley with the spring as far as it will go. Put the belt through the opening between the pulley & the pivot and onto the motor. release the pulley. It should tighten the belt.

Belt goes around the tumbler first, and then around the pulley. Last, grab the belt section that is on the pulley farthest from the tensioner and mount it. Should fit nice and snug.

My 10 year old whirlpool super capacity 456's right front control knob started to burn with flames shooting out. Disconnected plug from wall and have been using lighter to start burners. Any idea as


there's a wiring harness with 4 or sometimes 5 switches depending on the model you have that slides onto the valve so when you turn the knob that burner will light,the switch most likely shorted out.if this is a regular stove with an oven and burners on top look down at the bottom,under the oven door you'll see a draw,open the draw and look on the frame not on the draw on the frame and you'll find a tag with the model and serial number on it,send the model number and i can look up your model.

I have a Admiral Electric Dryer -Super Capacity, Stainless Steel Panel. How do I get the belt off to replace.


Interesting question. You know in recent years Admiral have been acquired by Whirlpool. Several tried and true base models have the Admiral logo on them now so it would be a guess as to which model you have. Why not post a follow up and add the model number ?

My whirlpool dryer heat up. But does not spin.


Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Check for belt on drum half way back on the drum running from left to right. If belt is missing or broken replace with part number 341241 later in this process.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a 5/16" hex head screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior. Rotate front panel to right to get it out of the way watching to ensure wiring is not damaged.

Place new belt over drum groove side down if old one was broken. Check white idler pulley for free rotation before installing in holes of floor under motor pulley. Replace with part number 691366 if rotation of pulley is not free or if it appears worn. Loop belt with ribs inward and pass through the open space in the idler arm below pulley then pass loop over motor pulley rib side down. The configuration at the motor should now look like the Whirlpool model in the image below:

Belt and pulley configuration

Grasp front edge of dryer drum and rotate counterclockwise slowly to align idler and motor pulley and to remove any twists in the belt.

Reverse disassembly process to re-assemble.
