SOURCE: slipping belt
OK the belt tensioning mechanism is spring loaded. First what is the quality of the belts are they real flimsy or stiff. You say the rollers spin but my question does the rear roller still spin and the belt remain stationary. If so the rubber belt on motor is bad. I would take a look for excessive wear on the rear roller. Does the yoke mechanism snap forward or move slowly, look for a build up of sawdust in this area that might be restricting movement on the yoke. The wear plate in still good condition. One other thing on the belts are they directional? Do they have an arrow on the inside if so that has to point toward front of tool. I looked at a breakdown and could not see anything else to suggest. I never had this problem except with belts when I was at Makita.

check the wear plate on the bottom and also check the front roller for being out of round is where I would start. Let me know if doesnt help

Do you know anyone with a metal lathe or that works in a machine shop? If you do ask them if they can make the rollers for you out of metal. Or else find a machine shop and ask them to make you new rollers.

I would recommend going to Dewaltservicenet.com and typing in your model number and on the next page find the type number for the tool. I took a guess and found 2 thrust washers for the DS321. Let me know if you need more assistance and I will try and help

There is a black metal ******** one side that is actually a lever and with the tip of a screw driver or the like, pops out and releases the front roller.
