Whirlpool 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 models with non-removable back panels use this diagram:

Style: Flat with ribs
Installation Tips: Ribs against drum

For models with removable back panels use this diagram:

There are several helpful dryer belt diagrams that are available at repairclinic.com. Just go to the site and click on "Get Repair Help". Under Large Appliances, select "Dryers". Look for the "Click Here for a Belt Installation Diagram" link. Refer to either diagrams H or K. If you are confused on which diagram applies to your dryer, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so I can assist you further. I hope this helps you.

The pulley and brcket fell off it's position laying in the bottom of the dryer don't know how it goes ?


If you are referring to the tension pulley that keeps the belt tight on the drum, just follow these steps to reinstall:

1. Make sure the drive belt is looped around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H.

NOTE: If you still have the teflon glide type tensioner, Whirlpool recommends you replace it with a conventional roller type idler pulley. The teflon type tensioners caused premature wear to the drive belts. A replacement pulley can be ordered on line at any of the following websites:

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

The part number is 691366 (if needed).

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate around the dryer door opening) so that I may be able to confirm your dryer configuration. I hope this helps you.

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!!!

What is the routing of a dryer belt? It's a Roper dryer model GL6050VLO


To install a new belt and re-install the pulley, follow these steps:

1. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H.

You can also refer to pcappliancerepair.com for some excellent exploded view diagrams of your dryer. Just type in your model number as "GL6050VL0" (the last digit is a zero, not the letter O), and go to the "Bulkhead" section.

NOTE: Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions will apply.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

How to install a belt on a Whirlpool dryer model LEW0050PQ?


The tech I paid to replace the belt opened the case from the top and the back, and pulled the drum back away from the front, keeping the drum attached to the back panel. This exposed the motor and the broken belt, which had been cut by the motor drive wheel, probably because the drum was too heavy. Don't you just love renters?
