Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

Whirlpool Imperial Dryer (electric). I need to replace the belt but one of the parts that the belt goes through came off when I took out the drum. Not sure how the part goes back in. Do you have a picture of assembly for replacing the belt?

Look for a wear sign on the frame of the dryer, and also the wear on the idler arm with pulley. The wear on the frame will tell you where it goes, and the wear on the idler arm will tell you which way it faces.
Also after you determine where the bracket goes,. then reinstall the spring into the hole on the bracket and move it around to see where it might attach, there should be a small amount of wear where the spring will attach to the frame.
I will include a website that has a repair manual for this dryer, it would be a wise choice to get one if you plan to keep and work on this dryer, it will pay for itself in tech costs.
Check under repair manuals

Changing dryer belt on kirkland/whirlpool dryer took apart dryer but dont see where belt suppose to mount.


Hello. The belt goes around the tub and the tension pulley. In fact, it is always a good idea to replace both the belt and the idler/tension pulley at the same time. J.

If you want a schematic go to searsdirect.com and enter your model number. J.

Need model number or part number for whilpool dryer


The model number for your dryer is usually located on a plate or sticker inside the door on the body of the dryer hidden by the closed door.

The most common (but not the only) belt number for Whirlpool dryers is 341241 and the idler arm for that common dryer has tabs that fit into the floor beneath the motor drive pulley. Take a loop of the belt with ribs inside the loop and pass it through the opening below the roller and loop it around the motor pulley. If it's the most common unit the end result should look like the image below for Whirlpool:

How to install a belt on a Whirlpool dryer model LEW0050PQ?


The tech I paid to replace the belt opened the case from the top and the back, and pulled the drum back away from the front, keeping the drum attached to the back panel. This exposed the motor and the broken belt, which had been cut by the motor drive wheel, probably because the drum was too heavy. Don't you just love renters?

Whirlpool dryer heats but the drum doesn't rotate


There is usually a large belt that goes around the drum to turn it ...it is either fallen off the motor pulley , broke .....or the motor may be gone in it ....not sure if there are any fuses for the motor on your dryer .
If you can tip the dryer over the bottom is usually open and you can see the motor and belt from there
