    Are you referring to the drum support roller? Or, the idler pulley roller that the drive belt rides on?

You can turn the dryer on its side, and put the pulley back on the motor shaft. The pulley is normally held on by a set screw, you may need an allen wrench to tighten the set screw.

unplug the dryer, pull out from the wall 6 inches, remove the screws at the lint filter, use putty knife to pop the clips at the seam between the top and front(one on left front and one on right front and an inch or two in) , remove the 1/4 inch hex head screw one on left , one on right, tip front forward, unplug the door switch, remember where the wires went, lift the front panel off. Remove belt by reaching under drum and grasp the idler pulley and pull it to the right and slip the belt off the motor pulley, use belt to lift the drum and pull out from cabinet. Remove old felt. do not get adhesive on you it is hell to get off. Use disposable gloves if possible. put glue around the tub, install the new felt, the fold face toward the back so that you can see the stitching. Allow 15 minutes for the adhesive to set up. Reinstall the drum, make sure the ridge of the drum is seated to the rollers in the back, put belt on the line where it has been riding and run hands around the belt making sure it is not twisted and the ribs are facing the drum. install the idler pulley in to the slot in front of the motor, pull belt through the idler pulley, pulley idler pulley to the right and re install the belt to the motor pulley. Re install the front of the dryer by inserting the clips on the inside of front in to the square holes on the cabinet front edge, re install wires for the door switch, the ones you remember where they went, put the screws back in to hold front panel, snap the top back down, put the screws back in at the lint filter area, Done! Wait about an hour before you run it to allow the adhesive to fully cure. These instructions are for most Whirlpool, kenmores made by whirlpool, roper, and kirkwood dryers.

Wjrr4170g1ww bottoms out and grinds the pulley


It sounds like the springs in your suspension system have gotten weak. You can order part # WH16X544, you should need 4 of them. You can take the front panel off by slipping a putty knife under 2 tabs at the top of the front panel. The top can be removed by removing 2 Phillips screws in the front. Each rod can be replaced one at a time, it would help to have some extra hands to help you. There are tabs at the bottom of each rod that must be popped off while the tub is lifted in order to remove them. Hope this helps

How do you replace the drive belt in a kenmore dryer model 88042


Pull the fron off. Remove tub, should have a spring loaded idler pulley next to the motor. Make sure that it is not broke and spins freely. Also check tub support rolers on each side. They shoule spin freely. If ok, put belt around tub, install tu. Put belt around spring loaded pulley. May need a hand holding tub while you install pulley. Put front on. Make sure the fron of cover fits inside the tub seal. Good luck. email me with issues, bobby.crochet@lyondellbasell,com.

My washer wont spin or agitate and there was a burning smell


Hi
Older top load washers use a belt to drive to transfer the energy from motor to drum. However, if the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning "rubber" smell. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer. The solution is to replace the belt with a new one. To replace the belt you can open the back lid of the washer
To replace the belt carefully pry up on front washer top to release plastic keeper pins, remove 2 Phillips screws from beneath lower front washer panel, slightly lift upward on panel to release. Now remove old broken belt, push new belt beneath large tub pulley and put belt on small motor pulley. After this push back belt tension /idler arm, start belt on large tub pulley, turn tub pulley by hand to run belt on, release tension on idler arm. Replace front panel and lower top.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

I need to know how to install the new belt


The following link explains how to install the belt on a Whirlpool Duet front loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3059652-drive_belt_installation_whirlpool_duet

This is an easy process, but it may take some effort to get the belt on the pulley. It is designed for a tight fit in order for the belt to stay in place on the tub pulley with no play in it. There is no tensioner and you do not loosen any motor mounts. Just make sure you hold the belt tightly in place with your hands and turn the entire tub pulley (like a steering wheel) in a clock-wise direction. The belt will stay on after you turn the pulley far enough for it to grip and stay in place.

If you have not purchased a replacement belt yet, the part number for the model you have this listed under is 8181670.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

H3 Elite washer.... steel tub is wobbling and cutting into the plastic ring liner. If steel tub or has separated from bearing, is this covered under warranty.... after 4 years.... or not. How expensive is...


rear pulley nut is loose. tighten . if it has been loose for a while pulley may be warped and also tub bearing and spin basket could be bad. dont have your specific model # to know if in warranty . can go to wpl .com and check warranty with your model # or kenmore then go to sears.com . i would use another servicer we waive are service fee if you fix the washer we only charge 65.00 service call. im sure you can find a servicer with a lower service call. thats the highest ive ever heard they will charge you double what anyone else charges.worse case scenerio could be 300-400 dollars if tub, pulley , spin basket need to be replaced. but i say its worth you replacing pulley or checking nut any other repairs for this i would just replace unit. again check your warranty i think the spin basket has a 10-20 yr warranty.

Maytag MAV 7000 stopped in rinse cycle with water in tub. When turned on, there is a low buz sound. Was making a louder noise prior to stopping.


RepairClinic.com

The top of the washer lifts up like a car hood after two clips between the top and the front panel are pushed with a putty knife. Once the top is flipped open, the screws that hold the front panel in place at the top can be removed and the panel lifted off. The belt may be bad or something may be stopping the belt like a bad pump. Or the transmission drive pulley and bearing may be going bad. If the bearings above the transmission drive pulley fail the brake will not release correctly in the spin cycle causing weak, slow or no spin. The belt & pulley system can be accessed by tipping the washer back. The belt is routed around all three pulleys under the washer and is fairly loose until the motor starts. It is the torque of the motor that gives the belt tension. Leaking or loud "jet engine" sound in spin indicates a bad main tub seal at the outer tub which has caused the spin bearing to fail. This is a complicated repair as the inner and outer tubs need to be removed from the washer to access and replace the seal and bearing components.
