Howdy: Check for the bolts that hold the pully on. Loosen the bolts and the pully should stat to open. You may have to put on the belt then install the pully. Look close at it. Good luck - Doug

Model# 110.72602101 Kenmore Dryer I had ordered the belt replacement but the instructions show an Idler Pully but I don't seem to have the wheel that goes on it. Not sure how this belt is to be...


you must have the older style pulley that's all metal with no wheel.rap the belt around the drum,on the side where the pulley is pinch the belt together stick it under the half moon part of your metal pulley and stick the looped end around the motor shaft,if i were you i'd call the place where you bought the belt from give them the model number and order a belt kit,you get the belt,the rollers and the pulley with the wheel not that metal **** piece and replace it,you get all those parts for short money,cheaper than buying them seperate or use it for now until it starts getting noisy.let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help let me know

With the Kenmore series 80 Dryer plugged in, Pressing the start button causes the motor to hum as if the belt, pully or motor is frozen. The drum doesn't turn during the humming and is difficult to turn...


You'll need to remove the back panel and determine the cause. Look for:

Seized drum support rollers (3)
Seized drive and/or idler pulleys
Burned out or seized motor
Possible bad motor start capacitor (if equipped)
Drum alignment

KENMORE SERIES 80 DRYER..The Tensioner use it or not and how?


To fit the new belt, you will need the idler pulley (tensioner)...

The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, pull it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).

If you still need help, I will try to provide you with a diagram shortly.
Good luck!

Show me how the belt should be run


Stick the idler in the floorboard, even with the motor pulley and have the idler wheel facing to the left of that motor pulley. Insert the non twisted belt into the idler between the cheapass metal idler pulley mount(have yer woman hold that drum up, make her proud to assist) and now yank back on the idler good nuff to get that belt looped over that motor pully. Then let that idler go so the tenshun on dat boy cause dat belt to stay all propah on dat pulley. Replace that front panel. 05cc3f4.jpg

Belt busted


lets see what we can do. wrap the belt around hte tub assy. the little white roller w/ metal arm (called the tension pulley) needs to be installed .there should be a few ****s directly under ther motor pulley on floor of unit.two sets of ****s you wanna use the set to ther rear of unit. insert the prongs into the left rear **** and then pull the roller portion to the right.(it should hook the back prongs of idler into the rt side ****s. tension holds this into position so it will fall out if you let go) theres an opening in the metal under the roller mounts, e**ugh room to slide the belt through.heres how it works, install the idler as described above, feed the belt through the opening in the idler from the left and under roller through hole pull hte roller and pulley hard to the right.(its springy and as long as installed correctly ** worry of popping out) and loop around the motor pulley.let go of the pulley. and the belt should remain tensioned. it will only go on on way. GOOD LUCK

Makes squeaking noise after running for about 10 minutes


you can check a lot of things. the motor itself, the rollers on the back, and the main bearing at the center of the drum. you can apply any lubricants to all of those rolling parts.
