Unplug unit . Check to be sure you have 240 Volts at wall outlet.

Open the door and look along the front upper edge of the dryer along the front edge. There will be 4 screws going into the top. Remove them and lift the top.

Near the floor at the front of the dryer about 1 inch in and 4 inches off the floor there will be a 5/16" hex head screw on each side that is black like the toekick. Loosen each about 3 turns but do not remove them. Leaning against the front of the dryer, Look down inside the open top dryer from above on each left and right edge there will be a 5/16" hex head screw holding the front assembly to the case of the dryer. Remove 1 on each side.

The dryer front can now be pulled toward toy about 3 inches at the top and then lifted off the lower screws and swung away to the right from the case. Be careful not to strain any wires connected between the case and the front. Place the belt around the drum with the ribs of the belt facing the drum and hang the remainder of the belt into the lower part of the dryer.

Reverse the process of the above three paragraphs to reassemble what you have done.

Pull the dryer out enough to get behind it. there is a lower black panel to be removed by taking out all the 5/16" screws around the edge. Swing the panel aside and look into it. You will see the motor to the right and the loose part of the belt hanging somewhere in the middle.

Place the belt around the motor and idler pulley so that the ribbed side of the belt goes in the grooves on the motor pulley and the flat side runs around the idler pulley, according to the GE chart on this image.

Turn the drum by hand a few times so that the belt aligns with the pulleys and is not twisted at any point.. Reinstall the rear panel again and you are finished.

Good Luck

Trying to replace belt around drum. reached in under drum to put belt around both pulleys but the belt is not tight. any suggestions?


You need to ensure you have the belt properly routed (ribbed side facing the drum) around the motor pulley and the tensioner pulley.

Since you posted no BRAND NAME or MODEL NUMBER, the only advice I can provide you with is to go to repairclinic.com and select "Get Repair Help". Under the Repair Help section, select "Dryer". Under Dryers, there is a link for dryer belt diagrams. There is an extensive list of diagrams to choose from based on manufacturer. If you do not find what you are looking for there, or if you have further questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Need to replace the dryer belt and have the dryer taken apart, how do i put the belt back on?


Thre are a couple of different ways, the dryer belt goes back on a Whirlpool manufactured dryer (including Kenmore). However, since you posted no MODEL NUMBER, I can only give the following advice:

Go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page, look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Refer to diagram H or K.

If you aren't sure which configuration to use, please post back with your model number, so I can provide you with a more difinitive answer. I hope this helps you.

Need to know what size belt goes on whirlpool hotpoint dryer model#DLB155OBDLAD


Your model number is actually "DLB1550BDLAD". The character after the second 5 is a zero, not the letter O. I'm only pointing this out to you because it is often hard to read these characters and it will avoid confusion for you in the future. The part number you need for a belt replacement is "WE12X82". You can find it at searspartsdirect.com under the "Blower and Drive Assembly" heading. It is listed as item number 213. The illustrations aren't the greatest, but they may help you as well. If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. They should carry a stock of different dryer belts. I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have further questions.
