Need instruction for replacing a drive belt on a electric dryer Model No. DE482 Serial # 07


Best to move the dryer to a big room (hopefully cardboard if carpet is not available) as you will need to move around and move IT around some. Once you've got a nice clearance to work in, place the dryer onto its FACE-to clarify, the side that has the door that you open to access clothing articles should be on the ground. You will need to remove the back panel. This is the only way that you can replace the belt as there is a belt tensioner you will need to access also. The belt is long but not very wide or thick. There will only be one way you can fit the belt in place, have it be nice and tight, without having any slack. You might need a friend to hold the belt in place around the large DRUM (the area clothes are placed for drying) while you are routing the belt into place. There are only 3 places that the belt needs to contact: The DRUM, the motor shaft (this is what causes the belt to turn the drum), and the belt tensioner. The drum (with a friend holding the belt in place) and the motor shaft should be a snap, it might take a couple of tries to figure out how to correctly route the belt through the tensioner. When you have routed the belt correctly, the belt will be snug, the tensioner should flex (a little), and should be in the same spot the old one was. There is NO WAY you can install it backwards. Before putting the back panel on, turn the drum by hand a little to make sure you haven't missed or forgotten anything. Not a big job, not time consuming, just be careful you don't take any shortcuts and it should turn out great!

If you need more help, I found parts breakdown prints here:

Hope this helps!

I have a kenmore 27 inch electric dryer that when you push the start button it sounds like it starts but the drum doesn't turn. What could this be?


A clear indication that your dryer belt is broken is when the dryer drive motor runs but the drum does not rotate. A new belt is relatively inexpensive from several online or a local parts vendor, but installing it can be a bit frustrating since the dryer drum usually needs to be remove to install a replacement belt. Access to the interior of the dryer is usually necessary. For Maytag (and some Kenmore) models, the front of the dryer can be easily removed (two screws below front contour) by pulling out on the bottom of the panel and rotating up to release the top clips. Once off, place to the side, then remove four machine screws from the front drum/lint filter assembly, then remove by pullling out. Once off, place aside. Remove drum by lifting up and pulling out on drum (since the belt is broken it will not provide any resistance). Once removed, inspect the motor pulley arrangement noting the belt routing path around the motor pulley, belt tensioner, and the drum. Inspect the drum for belt wear marks, noting approximate location on drum where belt rides. Install replacement belt by routing through pulley arrangement (ridged side of belt rides againt motor pulley), then "hang" the belt on the interior backside to enable reaching the belt after reinstalling the drum. After placing the drum edge on the rear rollers, lift the front of the drum up into position, working the belt around the drum into the drum groove. Once the belt is in the groove, the drum should stay in position without lifting from the front. Check for proper pulley routing, taking care to avoid routing the belt OVER the tensioner belt keeper, i.e., route the the belt under the belt keeper to avoid belt riding on the keeper and failing prematurely. Install the front/lint filter assembly. As you manually rotate the drum, reach along the top and side of the drum and gently pull the belt out of the groove and into its normal ride position. Install the front panel, plug the unit in, start and check for proper rotation of the drum.

Kenmore Series 80


You can find an exploded view at Sears Parts Direct, as well as get P/N's for the parts needed. I suspect the roller assembly came apart which caused the belt to fail.

You will need your Model number to locate the exploded view. If you can not figure out the routing from that, then order the service manual from Sears. It will show the routing and describe how to assemble and test most all aspects of the appliance.
