Drum stopped spinning. I took apart and took out the broken belt. Not positive if thats the only problem. I found a one inch in diameter plastic piece that seems to be broken, also. Not sure how to put it...


The plastic piece maybe the pulley on the end of the motor. Check the motor for a drive pulley it will have grooves in it for the belt. Since you are in there check the idler pulley for ware, the drum support pulleys in the back for ware, and see if you have any glide pads for the front of the drum. When you put it together put the belt around the drum before you put it in. Before you secure the front of the drum put the idler pulley on the belt. As long as you do not end up with extra screws you got it back together right.

The dryer is making a terrible noise, and the drum has stop turning. How many belts are required? when lifting the top and checking the belt should there be any play between the belt and the drum?


Only one belt is used ,their should be no slack between belt and drum.If you can lift up the belt and it dosent snap back tou have a tensioner problem , that could also be part of your noise concern

good luck

The belt around the drum of my dryer broke. i have a new one just need some tips on puting it on. Also when i pulled the drum out there was a white/clear piece, round in size, and a metal clip laying on...


don't know what the pieces are that you found on the floor of dryer,check the front panel for the clip,might have popped off when you took the dryer apart or these things fell out of clothing that were put into dryer.now the belt,rap it around the drum with the ridges touching the drum, smooth side up.stick the drum in place and spin it a few times till the felt in the back is lined up and the rollers are lined up on the drum,stick your head inside the drum and hold the drum up with your shoulder,just pinch the belt together and pull it under the pulley and attach it onto the motor shaft,that's it.picture your pants belt floded in half,around four inches from the folded part pinch the belt together and you'll have a loop on the end,your fingers are the bottom part of the pulley and the loop end is the part of the belt that connects to the motor shaft.hope this helps,let me know how you make out

Need to replace drum belt


Most dryers have a tensioner pulley that the belt needs to go around to keep it tight. The belt goes around the motor pulley and the drum, but it goes around the tensioner pulley in a way that would keep it tight (you also need to release the tension on the tensioner to get the belt around it) If there's not a tensioner pulley there has to be some other means of putting tension on that belt, look around the the other pulleys that the belt goes around.

Drum won't turn


Your dryer uses a belt wound around a spring loaded pulley and, around the middle of the drum and, around the motor pulley to turn the drum. If you feel capable of fixing ths yourself: Unplug the dryer, if it is gas or, electric. if it is gas: shut off the gas line to the dryer then remove the gasline; next pull the dryer out from the wall and, remove the back panel. Once you do this you will see that the belt has fallen off both the motor pulley and, the spring tension pulley. put the belt back on so that the belt is tight around the drum and, the drum will turn again.

I have an older kenmore 70 series dryer. the belt broke and im trying to figure out where the pulley is supposed to go and how the belt is supposed to go


If you are referring to the tension pulley that keeps the belt tight on the drum, it is common for it to come loose when the belt breaks because there is no longer any tension holding it in place. Just follow these steps to reinstall:

1. Make sure the drive belt is looped around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place with your left hand, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H.


If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate around the dryer door opening) so that I may be able to confirm your dryer configuration. I hope this helps you.

Dryer takes three cycles to dry took apart need help put back together


Model #?
If this is a standard dryer with the idler pulley, place the pulley into the slots to the left of the motor pulley. Bring the belt through the idler so it is running on the flat side of the belt and place the belt around the motor. The idler should be placing down pressure on the belt keeping it tight. make sure there are no twists all the way around the drum or it will pop off.

LER6636PW0 drum does not turn


hi fakestar,
here is an exploded view of the dyer, and you can see where the pulley came off.8dd05ba.gifpart number 24 are the pulleys.

another picture is for the belt and the tensioner
1e696ba.gifpart number 53 is the tensioner and part number 56 is the belt.

it just tricky on how to put the belt.

first put the pulley back to its location then slowly insert the drum to the dryer while putting the belt around the drum with the grouve of the belt facing the drum.
have a helper hold unto the drum , in place, then lean underneath towards the motor and put the tensioner to its slot at the flooring, just like in the drawing, then insert part of the belt under the pulley of the tensioner then with your left hand, hold the tensioner pulley and with your right hand, grab the belt which you inserted under the pulley, and bend the tensioner towards the right with your left hand while the right hand is pulling the belt towards the motor until the belt loops to the motor's pulley.

i hope i was able to explain that one.

that is really tricky to put on.

tnx 4 using fixya,
