The belt attached to the blower wheel on my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer has come off. How do I reattach it?


Unplug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer from the electrical outlet before installing a new belt. Remove the lint filter from underneath the lint filter cover. 2 Unfasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver, setting the screws in a safe place. Slide a putty knife between the dryer top and the cabinet near the front, lifting up on the knife to detach the top from the plastic clips on the cabinet.3 Flip the dryer top back against the wall so it is resting on the rear hinges. Locate the screws on the inside of the upper front panel near the top.4 Unfasten the screws on the inside of the upper front panel with a screwdriver. Lift the panel up off the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet. 5 Unplug the door switch connector from the back of the upper front panel by hand, setting the panel out of the way. Slide the putty knife between the lower front panel and the dryer cabinet, pulling the knife away from the cabinet to detach the panel from the plastic clips on the cabinet.6 Place a couple of wood blocks under the lip of the dryer drum to hold it in place. Locate the idler arm near the motor at the base of the dryer.7 Move the idler arm forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Take the belt off the motor and idler arm pulleys, lifting the drum up and sliding the belt off the drum.8 Install a new belt around the dryer drum, looping it over the idler arm and around the motor pulley. Move the idler arm back into position to add tension to the new belt.9 Remove the wood blocks from underneath the lip of the dryer drum. Plug the door switch connector into the back of the upper front panel by hand.10 Slide the upper front panel over the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet, securing the top of the panel with screws. Fasten the lower front panel to the front of the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips by hand.11 Flip the dryer top back down onto the top of the cabinet, pressing down to secure the top to the plastic clips on the cabinet. Fasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver.12 Slide the lint filter back under the lint filter cover by hand. Plug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer into the electrical outlet.

    How do I change the drive belt?


    Unplug the dryer.
    Remove the lint filter.
    Remove the 2 screws at the lint filter opening.
    Use a putty knife between the top lid and the front panel to release the clips.
    They are about 2 inches in from right and left sides where the top meets the front panel.
    Lift the lid towards the rear of the dryer.
    Look inside the top right and left corners of the front panel and remove the screws holding the front to the cabinet. Remove the door switch wires and set the door aside.
    Place the new belt over the drum,ribbed side towards the drum.
    Look under the drum for the belt tensioner. It is S shaped with a wheel on it.
    Place the base of the tensioner in the slots below the motor pulley.
    Feed the right side of the belt through the opening under the wheel with the smooth side of the belt touching the wheel.
    Place this side of the belt over the motor pulley with the ribbed side touching the pulley.
    Replace the front panel.
    Hook up the door switch wires.
    Replace the panel screws.
    Reattach the top lid and lint filter screws. Replace the lint filter.
    Plug in the dryer.

    Kenmore dryer squeeling


    FIRST ALWAYS UNPLUG THE MACHINE ANYTIME YOU WORKING ON IT ,
    it sounds like if you can see some black dust you have bad wheels i will suggest to replace the drum wheels.the belt an the tensioner since you can get all of them for under 40 dollars IS CHEAPER IF YOU ASK FOR A DRYER KIT .
    is worth to do it all since you are there, in order to open it you have to take the 2 screws off the top (filter panel) remove the filter panel, then you may need to use a putty knife to pry the top open (front of the machine top cover an front cover you will see the clips maybe 3 inches away from the corner, then one open remove the front panel 2 screws 5/16 lift an tilt the door an your in, lift the tensioner an remove the belt from the motor, lift drum an remove it then ur in,,,,,,,to assemble follow steps back n ur done!
