You can do it without a manual. Unplug the unit. Remove the screws on the back that hold the top lid on. Look down inside the back and you will see the belt running from a pulley on the motor to a large pulley on the drum. It may has the access through a rear panel. Most don't need an adjustment for tension, just peel the old one off if necessary and replace the new one. Take the serial numbers etc off the plate on the back when you look for a new belt. Check the drum and motor rotate smoothly before fitting the new belt.

Need help refitting the tension spring and belt to a Westinghouse dryer


You need to feed the belt around the tensioner first but release the tension from the tensioner. Place something under it to keep it from expanding open and the feed the belt onto the drum. If you get it started you can turn the drum and it will feed itself onto the drum. Once that is done, align the belt visually for straightness and gently release the tension. Voila

Westinghouse Dryer Belt Diagrams and Replacement


Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.


For all Westinghouse models use this diagram:

You'll have to trouble shoot it... the belt either jumped off the motor pully or it may have broke. Either way you'll have to disconnect it and inspect it. Remember to always unplug the unit when servicing it. If the belt broke it is not hard to replace. The drums are held by gravity on rollers. Simply lift enough to get new belt pass the roller. If there are upper rollers in the way... simply remove them. Don't remove lower rollers. Lift the drum enough to install the belt and replace the upper rollers, relocate the new belt and close it up. Done.

I want to replace the belt in my white-westinghouse DE/DG 650K. How do I go about that?


Normally you need to obtain access to the complete circumfarence of the drum to fit the belt. Depending on your machine you can either remove the front of the dryer, or release the rear bearing support so that you can slide the new belt over the drum. The belt then just slips over the motor pulley and you need to check on the belt tension, usually done by adjusting the motor or the tensioner.

How remove front panel of frig gas dryer faqg7077kw


Hello there:
Here is how to disasseble the dryer
White/Westinghouse - Frigidaire style dryers- How to take apart....

White/Westinghouse, Frigidaire style dryers ( some 417.######## Kenmore dryers ) - How to take apart:
Disconnect power first In order to test and effect repairs on any product, you must be able to disassemble and reassemble the appliance. So lets start with disassembly on this dryer. Unplug the dryer. Get the top up by pushing in on 2 clips on either side as shown in this picture. We need to remove the front of the dryer next. There are 2 or 4 screws inside at the top on most of the older dryers that we need to remove. Once the screws are removed, you can pull forward on the front and lift the complete front off the 2 clips on the bottom of the dryer. Unplug the door switch wires and set the front aside.



if you need to further dissassemble it follow the next steps
Next step in disassembly is to remove the belt from the idler and the motor pulley. This is done at the rear of the dryer. Remove the 2 screws holding the inspection plate on the left rear of the dryer. Remove the plate. Look carefully at how the belt threads around the motor pulley and idler pulley so you can replace it. Remove the belt from the motor pulley. Return to the front of the dryer, grasp the belt in one hand and the front of the drum in the other hand. Lift up on the rear of the drum and pull forward with the other hand. There is a ball on the rear of the drum that rides in a socket located in the center of the back of the dryer. You are lifting the knob up and out of the socket. Look in the center of this picture for the socket. You have taken the dryer far enough apart at this point so that you can accomplish any repairs needed on this style dryer. It is not necessary to go this far for all repairs, but if you need to disassemble, you have the information.

Need to change belt on a white westing house dryer


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine. Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum. Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn. While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them. I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Older model dryer--drum will no longer spin. Need


The model number you provided is for a White Westinghouse. In order the access the internal cabinet to view the drum, you will need to lift the top panel. This is accomplished by inserting a putty knife along the front seam where the top meets the front of the dryer. About 2 inches in from each side is a small retaining clip. Push in with the putty knife and the top should pop free and lift up. The belt should be visible around the drum if it still intact. If the belt is loose, or missing, it has probably broken.

NOTE: The only way a belt will come off the drum while enclosed in the cabinet is if it breaks.

CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer before servicing. Dangerous voltage is still present inside the dryer even with it turned off.

To access the drum to replace the belt, you will need to remove the front panel. Remove the lint screen and lint screen cover in the door, first. Then, remove any screws holding the panel in place. The belt can be installed with the drum in place. Simply loop it around the drum first, then feed the remaining portion of the belt behind the blower fan housing and loop it on to the drive motor pulley and belt tensioner.

The part number for a replacement belt (if required) is 134503600. You can purchase a new one at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop around for the best deal. The first three sites also offer very helpful exploded view parts diagrams you can use as reference. Repairclinic.com will have diagrams to show up how to properly route the dryer belt. Just click on the "Repair Help" link, followed by the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Refer to Diagram G under Westinghouse.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If the belt isn't the problem, please let me know.
