Question about Samsung 7.3 Cu. Ft. Electric Dryer

Open Question

Belt routing issue resolved

OK, I finally figured it out... The right-hand side of the belt loop is the one that routes around the left side of the idler pulley. You have to pull the belt around the bottom of the drum and then over top the idler pulley, then back down and around the motor pulley. It's not all that obvious...

Don't have time to run this thing to find out how well the belt holds up, but will look to report back if/when I do: it's now a "spare" dryer, and I'm not really in a hurry to swap dryers for a test right now.

SOURCE: samsung dv4006 dryer belt

Possible replacement belt quality problem for the Samsung DV4006 / DV4006J / DV4015J / DV665JW and the Maytag MDE2400AZW dryers:

The original belt for the Samsung DV4006 / DV4006J / DV4015J / DV665JW dryers is a Megadyne 1975 H7. The part number is DC66-00121A, but when ordered, a Dongil 7PH1975 belt may be shipped instead of the original Megadyne. The Maytag MDE2400AZW dryer uses the same belt. The part number is 35001010, but when ordered, a Dongil 7PH1975 belt may be shipped. It seems that the Dongil belts are inadequate for these dryers. They delaminate and may fail prematurely. Even new, they cause a thumping sound each time the seam goes over the motor pulley. Other than Megadyne, another good belt is the Hutchinson 1975H7. The appliance part number is 1258288107.

Where to get an original Megadyne 1975 H7 belt:

eBay member 'appliance-parts' in Colorado, USA has emailed me that their Samsung DC66-00121A belts are Megadyne. Website: http://appliancefactory.com Email address: partsonline@appliancefactory.com

eBay member 'ladydi1975' in Ohio, USA has emailed me that their Maytag 35001010 belts are Megadyne. eBay store: Discount Appliance Parts.

Where to get a Hutchinson 1975H7 belt:

eBay member: 'zodiac300_0' in Brighton, United Kingdom. I have ordered a 1975H7 belt from them and received a Hutchinson.

Other possible causes for belt failure:

--Motor pulley designed too small. The belt may be flexed beyond it's minimum rated radius.

--Excessive heat in the dryer due to lint in the vent line or vent line too long. The Dongil belt may be less heat resistant than the Megadyne.

--Worn drum bushing DC66-00062A.

--Metal burrs on the steel motor pulley. Deburr by inserting a small screwdriver in each groove while the motor is turning without the belt.

--Belt on the wrong track. The motor pulley has nine grooves and the belt has seven ribs. The belt must be in the middle. It's easy to place it one groove forward or backward by error.

--Small scratches on the drum where the belt contacts it. The scratches may be like small knives and damage the belt. Sand with a fine sandpaper.

--Idler pulley damaged or bearing worn.

How to replace the belt:

--Remove top cover.
--Remove vent panel (in back).
--Unclip door switch from front panel.
--Disconnect wire harness from door switch.
--Unscrew panel left of control console (from behind the panel).
--Unclip panel left of control console (from behind the panel).
--Unscrew control console.
--Unclip plastic panel on bottom, front
--Remove screws behind door. Remove door.
--Unscrew large front panel, remove.
--Inspect vent line for lint buildup, drum bushing (back of dryer) for wear, motor pulley for burrs and debris, drum for scratches, and idler pulley/bearing for damage.
--Vacuum all lint.
--Install belt around drum, idler pulley, and motor pulley. The ribbed side of the belt contacts the drum. The flat side of the belt contacts the idler pulley. Press on idler pulley to stretch the spring, and line up the seven belt ribs in the center of the nine motor pulley grooves.
--Reassemble.

SOURCE: I need to see how

It sounds like you have a bad or broken belt tensioner. It is located in the bottom of the unit close to the motor . It is a spring loaded pully assembly which keeps the belt taught. The belt simply goes around the drum and the motor shaft and the belt tensioner pully.

SOURCE: have a samsung dryer model DV209AEW/XAA. I "hand

Check to make sure your child lock is off first. Hold the time and signal buttons simultaneously for three seconds. Unlikely, but do check. Some of these dryers have a safety switch that the idler pulley has to engage to allow the dryer to run. I tried to find a schematic for this model but could not get one to tell if you do have a safety switch. Look at the arm of the idler pulley and see if it is contacting the switch actuator correctly. When a belt breaks or pops off, sometimes the arm of the pulley will move to the other side of the switch actuator and will not allow the dryer to run once a belt is reistalled. I would also look to see if a wire was knocked off of the motor switch when your belt came off. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

SOURCE: Dose the dryer belt have

The grooved side should be in contact with the drum as well as the drive pulley. And blank/flat side of the belt should be in contact with the tension pulley.

I need to see a belt routing diagram for a Scotts Mower


This is for a Scotts 1642. Picture yourself sitting on the mower looking down at the deck. Starting at the tractor pulley, the belt runs from the right side of this pulley to the left side of the tension arm pulley, around this pulley to the left side of the right hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley, across the deck to the smaller left hand side idler pulley, then up to the left hand side mower blade pulley, around this pulley to the second (larger) idler pulley, around this pulley and back to the left side of the tractor pulley. If you make a small sketch of the deck pulley arrangement it will be easier. Keep in mind some of the pulleys are for the "V" side of the belt and some (The tension arm pulley & larger idler pulley) are for the flat side of the belt. Be sure the belt is not twisted and lays in a continuous circle with the "V" side of the belt on the inside before you start.

Routing dryer belt for kenmore 11060702990


rap the belt around the drum ribs down,if you get your pants belt and fold it in half and pinch it around 4 inches from the folded part that's how the belt will look when it goes around the pulley, your fingers are the pulley and the loop that's on the end goes onto the motor,pinch the belt together and the loop that's left on the end goes onto the motor

Need serpentine belt routing diagram for 1994 Dodge grand caravan


3.3L?
Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
Over the Alternator
To under the Idle Pulley,
To Over the AC Compressor.
To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
To Under the Power Steering Pump
And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
Advise when puting it on:
Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Removed the old fan belt. But don't know hos to


LOOP THE BELT UNDER THE CRANK PULLEY, START WITH THE RIGHT HAND AND GO AROUND THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE WATER PUMP, DOWN TO THE POWER STEERING PUMP, OVER THE A/C COMP, UNDER THE IDLER PULLEY, OVER THE ALTERNATOR, AND THEN THE TENSIONER.

ITS EASIEST TO SLIDE THE BELT UNDER THE IDLER LAST AND RELEASE THE TENSIONER.

hi, you should find a serp. belt routing diagram on the cross member that supports your radiator. if not- disconnect neg batt terminal for safety. you'll need a long breaker bar metric. as most, if not all fasteners on your ram are in metric. cant remember right size socket, but just go through your metric set and "eyeball"it. once you have the proper socket-detention the belt by pulling breaker bar clockwise. remove old belt. it maybe useful to take a picture of how your old belt is routed with a camera equipped cell phone (if it is still on) so that if you get into trouble, you can look at the picture as a reference point. new serpentine belt install--insert new belt over the cooling fan route under crank pulley-over fan pulley, around p/s pump pulley,up and around a/c comp pulley, under idler pulley, over alternator pulley and finally around tensioner pulley. pull breaker bar clockwise to slip belt past and onto the tensioner pulley. release tension on tensioner. be sure to check tensioner indexing marks located on the tensioner arm this is to make sure the new belt is installed properly. reconnect neg batt cable to terminal-remove any hand tools from engine bay, start engine and observe belt operation. hope this helps!
