Question about Samsung 7.3 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer
I purchased the Maytag belt (part no 35001010) as suggested by osmium2 and found it too be too big. Unfortunately I no longer have the old belt for comparison. It's possible that I'm suffering from brain damage and can no longer recall how to thread the belt (it's been several months since I last changed it), but I do not believe so (unless someone could explain how I could possibly not figure it out). Dryer model number is dv4015j.
It was not installed right. It goes over the drum, down and around the grooved pulley, then back up over the tension pulley. You have to pull the motor over to the right as you will be looking at it. That will flex the spring and allow the belt to slip over the tension pulley. Remember to make sure and put the belt on the middle of the grooves. There will be nine grooves on the pulley and only seven on the belt. Just leave one groove open that is on the side closest. This should clear the air on a simple operation that is often written as if we are all supposed to be appliance repair people. Best luck everyone!
