Take off the top of the dryer, the front of the dryer along with the ring thet holds the drum and the plate at the bottom backside of the dryer (there are alot of screws so make sure to keep track of them) put the belt on from the front side slip it all the way back (you will see a mark on the drum where the old belt was) go to the hole exposed from the removal of the back plate thet is where the tensioner is located. here is the part that got me, wrap the belt around the driver shaft pry up the tensioner DO NOT REMOVE THE SPRING IT DOES NOT MAKE IT EASIER put the belt under the idler so it applies tension to the drivertrack the belt and whalla you are done put it all together again and start drying. this is a ***** of a job but it is cheaper than getting a tech in to do it. i hope this helps

Hi,

The original 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.

Where to get an original Megadyne 1975 H7 belt:

eBaymember 'appliance-parts' in Colorado, USA has emailed me that theirSamsung DC66-00121A belts are Megadyne. Website:http://appliancefactory.com Email address:partsonline@appliancefactory.com

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 control console.
--Unclip plastic panel on bottom, front
--Remove screws behind door. Remove door.
--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.
--Reassemble.

Hope i helped you.

Replace the belt on pulley assemblyfor dryer dv4015j


There are plenty of YouTube videos on how to do this. The dryers are made by different manufacturers and are designed differently though. Watch the beginning of as many videos as necessary until you find one that comes apart the same way yours does. When you find that, everything inside will be the same too.

Samsung dryer DV4015J turns on and motor sounds like its working but the drum does NOT turn so clothes do not dry, they just sit in dryer container?


If this is the older type, then the dryer drum is rotated by a thin loop belt that goes around the drum and then a pulley on the motor. I had to replace my 20 year old dryer belt on a Whirlpool a couple years ago. The front comes off and the belt slips over the drum. The front of the Whirlpool is held on by friction clips that have to be pried off with a flat blade. I suspect that you can do the same. look on the internet for a diagram of your dryer or you may have one in the manual that came with the machine.

Replacing belt in samsung dryer I cant get the


This photo is from a Samsung DV409AEW, but I assume they are quite likely the same.
If they are the same route the belt per the photo below. It is counter-intuitive that the spring pulls the arm down, rather than to the left. Hopefully this will be your issue.
Hope this helps!
