Question about Washing Machines
Possible replacement belt quality problem for the Samsung DV4006 / DV4006J / DV4015J / DV665JW and the Maytag MDE2400AZW dryers:
Theoriginal belt for the Samsung DV4006 / DV4006J / DV4015J / DV665JWdryers is a Megadyne 1975 H7. The part number is DC66-00121A, but whenordered, a Dongil 7PH1975 belt may be shipped instead of the originalMegadyne. The Maytag MDE2400AZW dryer uses the same belt. The partnumber is 35001010, but when ordered, a Dongil 7PH1975 belt may beshipped. It seems that the Dongil belts are inadequate for thesedryers. They delaminate and may fail prematurely. Even new, they causea thumping sound each time the seam goes over the motor pulley. Otherthan Megadyne, another good belt is the Hutchinson 1975H7. Theappliance part number is 1258288107.

eBay member 'ladydi1975' inOhio, 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.
--Excessiveheat 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.
--Metalburrs on the steel motor pulley. Deburr by inserting a smallscrewdriver in each groove while the motor is turning without the belt.
--Belton the wrong track. The motor pulley has nine grooves and the belt hasseven ribs. The belt must be in the middle. It's easy to place it onegroove forward or backward by error.
--Small scratches on thedrum where the belt contacts it. The scratches may be like small knivesand 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 large front panel, remove.
--Inspectvent line for lint buildup, drum bushing (back of dryer) for wear,motor pulley for burrs and debris, drum for scratches, and idlerpulley/bearing for damage.
--Vacuum all lint.
--Install beltaround drum, idler pulley, and motor pulley. The ribbed side of thebelt contacts the drum. The flat side of the belt contacts the idlerpulley. Press on idler pulley to stretch the spring, and line up theseven belt ribs in the center of the nine motor pulley grooves.
Maybe you can obtain information in the Samsung Owners Manual (PDF Format).
