If you have to replace your drum 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, 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

How to replace the drive belt on a RIKON10-320 Bandsaw?


Check your manual. If you don't have, go to bandsawmanuals.com and see if they have the manual for your band saw. Replacing drive belt is easy, the same process on how you install belt on other saws. I saw a video on youtube about, I suggest you watch band saw videos.

Replace deck on Precor 9.45i


Replacing a Treadmill Running Belt and Deck Following is a basic guideline of removing and replacing the running belt and deck on a treadmill. Due to different brands and designs of treadmills, the following should only be used as a guideline. If any of the information is not exact to the treadmill being serviced, refer to the service manual or call Sportsmith for further help. Tools Needed: Phillips Screwdriver, Set of Allen Wrenches, Set of Box End or Open Face Wrenches (Tools needed may vary depending on treadmill. )
  1. Switch the Power off on the unit.
  2. Next, unplug the unit from the wall.
  3. Remove the finger guard retaining screws and carefully remove the finger guards from the deck at each end of the rear roller.
  4. Loosen each rear roller bolt by 10 full turns. Then count the remaining turns necessary to remove the rear roller bolts. Remember to write down the number of turns needed to remove the bolts in each side for future reference.
  5. Carefully remove the rear roller from the unit. Clean any wax or debris buildup from the roller and place it aside.
  6. Raise the shroud and secure it with a bungee cord.
  7. Work the drive belt off the motor pulley by hand turning the flywheel while pushing the belt aside.
  8. Now remove the front roller retaining bolts.
  9. Carefully remove the front roller from the unit. Clean off any wax or debris buildup and set it aside.
  10. Loosen and remove the deck mounting hardware.
  11. Move the deck toward the left side of the frame to free the deck from the right side. The deck will move down once the frame has been cleared.
  12. Remove the deck and belt by raising the right side edge of the deck over the frame rail and sliding it to the right to remove.
  13. When installing a new belt or deck it is important to note that a new belt and deck surface should always be installed together. Failure to adhere to this guideline will severely shorten the life of the newly installed parts. Some decks can be used on both sides. However, be sure that each side is only used once. Be sure to install the belt in the proper direction on the unit.
  14. Install the belt and deck by first putting the belt on the deck, and then installing them from the right side as a unit.
  15. Be sure the deck is lined up with the frame and push the deck to the left side.
  16. Now carefully lower the right side of the deck to insert it into the frame rail and then push the deck to the right as far as possible.
  17. Re-install deck mounting hardware. (Check with mfr. for proper torque during install process.)
  18. Carefully place the front roller on the deck under the belt and push it forward into place, while placing the drive belt on the inside of the drive pulley.
  19. Replace the front roller bolts. (Check with mfr. for proper torque during install process.)
  20. Now spin the roller by hand while pushing the drive belt onto the pulley. Be sure to spin the roller several times to insure complete installation of the drive belt on the pulley.
  21. Install the rear roller into unit. Carefully start each bolt and turn one to two threads to ensure no cross-threading has occurred.
  22. Tighten each rear roller bolt the number of turns you kept earlier for reference.
  23. Now, Plug in and power on the unit.
  24. Carefully remove the bungee cord from the shroud and lower it back into place.
  25. Start the unit at a very slow speed and check for proper belt alignment. Remember to start at the slowest speed possible and be ready to stop the unit quickly if needed.
  26. If the belt is moving to right side of unit tighten the right roller bolt, If the belt is moving to the left side of the unit tighten the left roller bolt until the belt is tracking properly.
  27. Caution: make very small adjustments such as 1/4 turns and then watch the belt for several moments before making another adjustment.
  28. Once the belt is tracking properly walk on the unit at a slow speed and check for belt slippage on foot fall. If this is happening tighten each of the rear roller bolts equal turns until the slippage is no longer occurring. Caution: make very small adjustments such as ¼ turns and then watch the belt for several moments before making another adjustment.
  29. Now use the unit at a jogging speed to check for belt travel or slippage.
  30. If slippage still occurs make small equal adjustments (1/4 turns) to both sides of rear roller and re-test.
  31. Install the finger guards once you have enough clearance from the rear roller.
  32. Some manufacturers require wax or lube during the install process, please consult your owner's or service manual for further information regarding this.

1998 Pontiac Sunfire Belt Routing Diagram

A drive belt routing diagram is needed when replacing a drive belt to help simplify the installation process. The problem arises as there are many different ways a drive belt can be configured. In this configuration the belt length will vary not allowing the belt to be installed. Also alternative configurations could turn a particular accessory the wrong direction, creating more problems. Always reinstall the drive belt in the exact configuration as the previous belt to prevent these problems. Always use high quality replacement products to avoid premature drive belt failure. If a multi rib drive belt fails it must be replaced immediately to avoid such situations such as engine overheating and loss of the power steering system. Whenever a belt replacement is required inspect the pulley condition to ensure there are no sharp edges on any of the pulleys, this will cause the belt to shred and fail. Confirm that all pulleys are free from debris such as small pebbles, these pebbles will cause the belt to pit and significantly impair the belt performance. The belt tensioner plays an important role to the drive belt performance, if this tensioner is weak it can allow the belt to lose tension allowing the belt to jump and skip. This condition will result in noises such as squeaking, chirping and ticking.
