If you have to replace your drive belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you problem later with the rollers getting noisy, and also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Driving my 92 525i bmw on freeway when it all broke loose my Power Steering and then all the lights on dash when on. Also the car over heated. What could have happen?


Serpentine belt broke. A serpentine belt drive runs everything: power steering, ac, alternator (electrical power), and the water pump (explains the overheating). I'd bet anything that your belt broke.

My belt broke and now my car wont start why not?


Ok. If your car was running and then the belt broke and you continued to drive it. The case may be that you drained the battery because the alternator runs on the belt and the alternator keeps battery charged and if belt broke and you continued to drive then you may need to jump start vehicle. I guess I shouldve asked earlier but have you replaced belt yet?

Driving and the timing belt broke can i just replace the belt? 2003 chrysler 300m


If the timing belt broke, than you heard a big banging noise from your engine and that is it, your valves met with pistons and they are more than likely to be bend, unfortunately this situation calls for engine recondition. But are you sure the belt broke as some of these 300M's were on a chain drive.
