You need to match the belt to the specific make and model of dryer. There are several online appliance repair parts suppliers that can provide great assistance, and in some cases, the OEM part number for the belt. With the latter, appliance outlets like Lowes should be able to verify that the belt purchased is the part needed. In addition, check your owner's manual for a specific part number for the drive belt.

Dryer belt keeps breaking


Did you check the idler pulley to be sure it wasn't damaged in some way, like a break in the plastic wheel or metal causing it to cut away at the belt until it breaks

Dryer makes a squeeking noise when starting up. It goes away after a short time. It seems to be drying the clothes. well. It's a Kenmore Model 110-74912200.


A lot a times it is just a loose or warn out belt. Unplug dryer, gently pull out dryer to access back, Open up back panel, normally is just Philips screw driver. and then check belt, if it is loose, sometime replacing belt is best. However before we panic and thinking it is the bearing on the motor that turns the drum via the belt. Buy some belt dressing that is designed for belts/dryer. Almost any appliance store will carry this spray. If belt is good shape, just try spraying a little of the belt dressing on the pulley area and see if this continues, if it does the main bearing is getting worn out on the motor. Lets not talk about that right now, as i believe the belt dressing will solve this squeak, sense it is still at this point operating properly. I hope this helps you, best regards , Mike from Fixya.

Needs new belt. Is the belt a common item?


Hello Stevenand266,

I understand that you are having a problem with your dryer, you need a belt. Almost all dryers are belt driven so yes they are common items to a dryer. However, all belts for dryers are not the same size, shape or length. I would be glad to help assist you in your endeavor of replacing the belt if you can post a make and model of the dryer in question.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

How do I replace a dryer belt on Kenmore dryer


You have to practically completely disassemble the dryer and remove the drum. If you can't figure it out, you should call an expert. Sometimes getting it apart isn't bad, it's putting it all back together that gets you. ;-)

Is there an adjustment on the kenmore 4179172000


The thing that you should now when taking on a repair on a "skyscraper" like thses, is that they are a monster to repair!! There is no "adjustment". The manufacturer (Whirlpool from the looks of your Model #) has a "fixed" tension on these units so they cannot be tampered with. You would need to purchase a repair manual that matches the unit you have to take you step-by-step. Plus, you can't just go by the size. The belt has to be ABSOLUTELY EXACT as the original. Did you get the belt from Sears or a third-party?

Belt and assembly trouble. Please help!!


Hi,
Yes, there is a tension pulley but I"m at a loss as to how you're burning the belt, if not routed around the tensioner... seems to me you'd have a world of belt slack.
You might check and see if you can freely spin the drum, or if it seems to be locked-up. There may be an obstruction, keeping it from rotating... it shouldn't require so much effort.
Just a suggestion... Good luck.

Kenmore Series 80 Dryer. Heats doesn't spin clothing. Imagine its a belt or spin motor. Need a schematic


No need for a schematic, there are two kenmore dryer belts, 'full size' or 'apartment size', if it is a belt you will be able to here the motor racing unloaded, turn heat to cold before testing, dont want to blow a thermal fuse.

Kenmore dryer comes apart from the front,
  • UNPLUG dryer 220V is not fun
  • remove the lint screen
  • remove the screws under the lint screen holding the case top to the screen holder
  • with a putty knife or other blunt blade release the catches at the front corners of the top and raise top
  • remove screws holding front of case on, from inside the dryer
  • remove door switch cables
  • lift front of case off and set aside,
  • can reach motor, belt, felts and rollers.
  • broken belt will be obvious, lying on the floor
If belt is broken, examine rollers and felt bearings for wear, stuck rollers or no felt left, is the most common cause of belts breaking, extra tension is required to spin the drum, If damaged replace them, they are cheap and easy to do, and it woud be no fun if another belt broke quickly

reasemble after repair in reverse order.

Kenmore dryer


The belt you will need for that unit is part # 341241. These belts will fit almost all Whirlpool and Kenmore models except for the DOTT (Dryer Of Tomorrow, Today) dryers. A DOTT dryer is a Kenmore model only, and has a front kick plate and the lint filter in the door.
