Re: lent belt

No, you need to put a new one on. it will come with the proper glue to hold it in place. the dryer will have to come apart to get it on properly

Replace belt on maytag dryer lde8824ace

If it is a model where the belt goes around the drum rather than a separate pulley the drier must be dismantled far enough to allow the belt to be freed from the drum.
Belts need to be replaced so infrequently manufacturers make little provision for in-service replacement and generally the drier must be taken back to the stage in production where the belt was originally fitted.

This can be a rather extensive process with many models and in the absence of dedicated model information we often must resort to simply keep removing screws until the thing falls apart. By the time a belt needs replacing the drum bearings and/or seals are often generally in need of attention in addition that the extra work, though inconvenient and dispiriting, is rarely wasted.

I replaced the belt and need to know how the tensioner goes back on

From the front with the belt around the drum in the correct position, and the drum in place. Reach in under the drum and put the belt around the pulley on the drive motor. Then find the idler pulley. It should be pulled to the base of the drier to the left of the drive motor pulley. Pull the idler pulley up and to the right and place it on the outside of the of the belt coming down from the drum to the drive pulley. It should pull back to the left and tension the belt.

Drum needs lubrication

My GE glides on a set of adjustable nylon pads at the front below the drum and a rear shaft. These are replaceable components through regular maintenance.
Since a belt drives the drum you would never lube the belt area and anything oily on the drum itself would attract dust and cause a mess.
Dryer overhaul is not rocket science, but if you get inside , after unplugging the unit....remember to clean away all visible dust.
Most driers have a hinged lid which swings up and back after releasing screws in the door area which point up to the underside of the lid, then inserting a putty knife along the sides near the front corners to pop the spring clips holding the lid down. Be gentle so as not to crack the enamel finish.
If your drier is clunking or grinding, I would recommend you pull the drum and overhaul front to back, mean while inspecting the element and gently cleaning it. Replace the glides or front rollers and the rear shaft and bushing together as they wear at the same time. Then remember to LEVEL the unit when done as centrifugal force wears out a non level drier.
Inspect the full length of belt for cracks by turning inside out. Before removing the belt note its installation pattern and tension set up area below near the motor.
If this helps please reply

Tumble dryer

  1. This doesn't appear to be a simple task so I would suggest making sure you have the time to do this so your project does not get interrupted.
  2. Step 2 1: Remove power (better now than later ;-) )

    2: Remove the front door assembly (2 screws holding the hinge to the drier carcase)

    3: Remove the top cover (2 screws at the rear, then slide the top backwards and lift off). It's a good idea to remove any fluff from the innards at this point.
  3. Step 3 4: Lay the drier carefully on it's front (I used a pillow to protect the timer and 2 pushbuttons)

    5: Remove the cover over the drum bearing and earth strap (2 screws)

    6: Remove the cover over the fan assembly (numerous screws)
  4. Step 4 7: Remove the earthing bracket (copper assembly held by 2 small screws) and then remove the circlip and washer on the drum axle

    8: Remove the fan vanes (3 hex screws holding 2 metal flanges that make up the impeller fan)

    9: Remove all screws around the rear cover and gently lift it up (I supported one edge with a basin perched on the rear of the drum, it gives access to the motor chassy etc. There's a vent tube that will come dislodged at this point; it's easy to relocate later.
  5. Step 5 10: Remove any bits of the old belt and drop the new one round the drum. Use tape to hold the belt in the correct position on the drum (if you don't do this, you WON'T gave enough slack to go round the motor pulley....believe me!!)

    11: Carefully feed the belt past one idler wheel and then over the motor pulley. Slowly turn the drum slightly to encourage the belt to feed round the second idler wheel.
  6. Step 6 12: Remove the tape used to hold the belt in place

    13: Replace the rear cover (make sure the vent tube is seated correctly at front and rear). Tighten all screws.
  7. Step 7 14: Replace the Fan assembly

    15: Replace the drum bearing circlip (I took the opportunity of rotating the bearing through 180 degrees). Replace the copper earthing strap.

    16: Replace the fan housing cover and drum bearing cover. (Make sure the heating element is free of fluff and crud)
  8. Step 8 17: Replace the top cover

    18: Fire up the beast!!! It may smell a little if there's anything still on the heating element.

Unsure how to access drier to put on new drive belt

Here is my own solution...
Disconnect from mains (of course) remove top (2 screws at back near top) Unplug electric connectors (on back panel, top RHS). Make sure note what goes where! Lie unit down on front remove screws (2) holding the drum spindle cover (centre of back) and remove cover pop off the circlip holding drum spindle, and washer unscrew back panel - hex headed screws round outside of back Remove screws at bottom of back panel which screw into the plastic vent housing (3 I think) Lift whole back off. (there's a plastic lip at bottom - need to pull away from this a bit) The drum spindle will be unsupported now, so don't move unit Full access now to drum and motor beneath Get and put on new belt reassemble.
Actually, having got into unit, found could not get belt from local spares shop (it had closed down), so bought new drier!

Drier Belt Replacement on GE model DDG7580

Open the door and remove four screws which go into the dryer top. Swing top back. Take out the screw on each side holding the dryer front to the side panels near the open top. Tilt the dryer front forward and lift it off the bottom pegs, then swing it to the side. Leave door switch wires connected. Lift up slightly on drum to allow the belt to be placed around drum. (grooves of WE12X82 belt touch the drum) Belt goes down from the left side of the dryer directly to the grooved motor pulley, then around the belt tensioning pulley and back to the drum. Your model has a removable panel at the bottom side of the back which will allow easy access to the motor pulley area.

Need a diagram to change heating element and sensors

unplug the drier pull it out from the wall about a foot facing the drier take a small putty knife and insert it about 3" from the edge push the knife in till you feel the spring clip push in on it and lift the top then repeat that on the other side fold the top back till it leans against the wall look in the drier on the front edge of the front door panel there are two 5\16 in screws there remove them and un plug the light switch and the door switch assembly .grasp the front door panel and give it a quick snap forward to disengage the retaining clips and the door from the drum remove the door .Lay on the floor reach in and remove the belt from the idler pulley and blower motor pulley .Then while standing at the side of the drier grasp the belt with one hand and the front of the drier drum with the other and **** up sharply on the belt to release the drier drum from the rear drum bearing then remove the drum out the front on the rear you will see the heating element there will be one sensor on the heater pan that's the safety or high limit thermostat the tiny one on the drier body is the thermal overload the one on the vent at the bottom is the operating thermostat but its rare to have a problem with them if the drier is not heating the first thing i recommend is check your voltage and connections and don't assume just because its running its getting full voltage check it with a meter driers will run on 110 but will not heat without 220
