My admiral dryer model AED4475TQ belt came off and the pulley is laying lose I need a diagram to fix it please help


Hopefully this helps! My drawing isn't great or good for that matter. The washer has a place to insert the pulley in front of the motor. Put the belt around the drum. Then push the pulley back away from the drum and insert the belt in between the forks and then wrap it around the pulley of the motor. I really hope this helps.

Dryer heats but won't tumble


More than likely it is the belt. The dryer has a motor that drives the drum usind a rubber belt that has probably broken. It is fairly easy to replace. Take top off dryer by lifting up top in front, (should be hinged) then you will see if belt is on or broken. Go to local appliance store with make and model number from your dryer and then you will have to lift drum out of case and put belt around it and replace. if you cannot reach belt to put around motor from top you will have to remove back access panel. Put belt on motor and dry away. Good luck.

Dryer will turn on and spin but is not heating up


This usually means the heating element (wire inside behind the turning drum) is broken. Unplug the dryer. Open up the back and front of the dryer, remove the drum's belt, then the drum. You should see the heating wire at the back. Check for the break. Then using pliers, join the two broken ends together by twisting the wires together. Put the parts back together, plug the dryer back in and away you go.

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!

Remove the screws from the bracket from the vent tube at the back of the dryer.
You can access the belt from there.
If the belt is off then the tensioner will push a switch to shut the dryer down.
Just hook the belt back on or replace the belt whatever needs to be done.
See other posts for this model number on how to connect the belt back if it came off.
They do that when turned the wrong direction.
