Tumbler belt came off


  • Unplug your dryer from the electrical outlet. Remove the lint trap by lifting its cover and sliding it out. Use a screwdriver to unscrew the two screws that hold in the housing of the lint trap.Lift up the top panel of the dryer and take off the holder for the door switch wire. Look for the screws that hold in the front panel of the dryer, located on top of the front panel, and unscrew them. Take the panel off the dryer by lifting it off.Look inside the dryer, find the broken dryer belt, and before taking it off, note the way it is routed around the pulleys, then take it off. Install a new Whirlpool dryer belt by slipping it around the tumbler with the grooves facing the surface of the tumbler. Ask an assistant to hold up the tumbler while you move the belt into the proper place, aligned with the black line around the width of the tumbler.Wrap the new dryer belt around the pulleys as noted in Step 3. If you don't remember how, or the old belt was snapped and not aligned properly, look at the dryer belt diagram in your user's manual.Align the front panel of the dryer with the tumbler. Put back in the two screws that hold the panel in place. Open the door of your dryer and with your hand, turn the spinner one time counterclockwise. Reconnect the holder for the door switch wire, being careful that it doesn't touch any moving parts.Use the screwdriver to carefully position the rubber seal along the back of the tumbler. Make sure the seal is on the outside of the tumbler and that none of it sticks to the inside of the tumbler.Slide the lint filter and housing back into place, and screw in the two screws that hold it in. Plug the cord of the dryer back into the electrical outlet and check that it spins properly.

    Tip

    The motor is running, but the drum isn't spinning.problem with dryer.


    Nine times out of ten it's a broken belt, but there are other factors that can cause this problem. <br /> <ul> <li>Broken belt -- Replace with an identical belt. Line up the new belt with the markings on the drum from the old one. Wind it around both the motor pulley and the idler pulley.</li> <li> Roller could be bad -- Underneath the tumbler is a roller that the tumbler sits on. It may have become too worn to work properly and may need replacing. Replacing it is simple - just remove the tumbler to gain access and then remove the retaining clip on the roller and slide it off. Reverse the process to install a new one.</li> <li> Motor or idler pulley could be bad -- Check the pulleys to ensure they're still in working order.</li></ul>

    My dryer rumbles when it is spinning. But it also


    The drum support rollers are worn. This will cause loose belt tension and a rumbling sound. You will need to pull the drum to find the rollers at the lower back of the drum. Check the roller shafts for wear and replace them at the same time as the rollers if needed. Check the belt and tensioner for wear before reassembly. This should fix ya...

    Tumbler spins, heat won't go on, timer won't work


    It is your operating thermostat. It controls the heat and runs the timer down.

    Dryer runs belt not broken and tumbler doesn't spin


    the belt may not be broken but it might be stretched past its limits check and see if the electric motor is spinning when the belt is off but my personal suggestion is take a digital picture of the belt on the pulley and tensioner so you can reference it when putting it back together

    Put belt on dryerg


    While I don't know about your specific dryer, most dryers are set up the same. I just replaced the belt on my Maytag LDE8404ACE. It was easy. The hard part was cleaning out 14 years worth of lint and fuzz that coated everything inside. Here's the instructions:

    1. Unplug the dryer or disconnect power.
    2. Remove the front panel. There are two screws, each is about 4 inches up from the bottom of the front panel. Unscrew them. Then hold the front panel along the bottom edge and pull it away from the dryer. Once it's away enough, the clamps along the top will pop and disengage from the dryer. Be sure to note the wires connected to the door switch are connected to the dryer. Disconnect them if you need to move the panel away from the dryer.
    3. With the front panel off, you should be able to reach inside the dryer to remove the old, broken belt.
    4. Remove the tumbler from the dryer. It's held in place by the tumbler front which is secured by 4 screws, 2 on each side. That piece will pull straight out toward you. With the tumbler front out of the way, the tumbler itself will come straight out as well. I recommend taking it out and cleaning the inside of your dryer while it's open. A vacuum hose works great. Also, check the pulley and the back two wheels that the tumbler rests on to make sure they turn easily. If not, you may want to grease them. Also, it's normal for the idler pulley to appear to be loose and wiggle in place. Once a new belt is installed, it's under tension from the spring so any play that exists shouldn't be a problem.
    5. put the new belt around the tumbler with the smooth side of the belt against the tumbler. Use the old belt marks on the tumbler to align the new belt. It's easier to hook the belt to the idler pulley and motor pulley from the back. So we'll get to that part in a minute. Just let the belt hang loose for now.
    6. Reinstall the tumbler front and secure with the 4 screws you removed earlier.
    7. Reconnect the wires to the door switch, if you removed them earlier.
    8. Reinstall the front panel, reversing the steps you took to remove it in #2 above.
    9. Go to the back of the dryer and remove the access panel along the bottom right hand side.
    10. From there, reach in pull the dryer belt around the idler pulley. Then take the belt on the left side of the pulley and move both the belt and the idler pulley to the right, until you can get the grooved side of the belt onto the motor pulley. I've attached a diagram with instructions.
    11. Once connected, manually turn the tumbler so that the belt will align and make sure the tumbler turns as easily as it did when you first removed it.
    12. If the belt looks good and you've manually turned the tumbler at least one full revolution (to ensure the belt didn't get twisted), then plug the dryer in and turn it on to make sure it works correctly. If so, then re-attach the access panel on the back of the dryer. You're done!
