Question about Kenmore Dryers
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
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. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would 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 a 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.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
I hope this helps

SOURCE: belt replacement
Visit youtube.com and type in Kenmore dryer repair. You'll find step by step instructional videos to service your unit.
BUT.... You've probably burned a belt, but this may only be a symptom of another problem. Something caused the belt to freeze up and burn on the motor pulley.
Check the roller bearings while it's apart... Make sure that the motor's turning free and all related rollers, pulleys etc are in good shape... save yourself from having to open it up twice..
Good luck and let me know how it goes.
