Replacing the Belt

  • Step 1 Put the dryer door-side down on the floor. This allows easier access to the back.
  • Step 2 Locate the center pivot suspending the dryer drum. If held by a clamp, removed any nuts or screws retaining the pivot axle.
  • Step 3 Move the pivot out of the bracket and slide the new belt inside the bracket.
  • Step 4 Replace the drum pivot in the bracket and reassemble the bracket.
    Looping the Belt
  • Step 1 Flip the dryer up so it is once again sitting upright.
  • Step 2 Locate the groove or wear mark the previous belt left in in the circumference of the drum.
  • Step 3 Wrap the belt around the drum in this groove or wear mark, with available slack at the bottom of the drum.
  • Step 4 Wrap the belt around the drive wheel located on the drive motor in the lower corner of the dryer.
  • Step 5 Insure the belt is snug but not biting the drive wheel. This indicates the proper size belt is installed.
    Reassembly
  • Step 1 Reattach any clips or wires to the back cover.
  • Step 2 Reattach the back cover using the six-sided sheet metal screws removed earlier.
  • Step 3 Reattach the top cover. Close tightly so clips secure the cover.
  • Step 4 Plug in the dryer and turn it on to test the belt repair.
  • Step 5 Reattach the dryer vent conduit

    How do you replace the serpentine belt on an 05 chevy trailblazer


    There should be a square hole in the tensioner. Stick a 3\8 drive rachet in the hole or rent tne tenioner tool from advanced auto parts. Push down on the tool and take the old belt off.BE CAREFULL NOT TO LET THE TENSIONER SNAP BACK ON YOU EASE IT BACK. Installing the new belt is just the reverse operation. There should be a diagram of the belt placement on the shroud. If not the diagram will come with the new belt

Remove belt. fit new belt to most pullys except the easiest to get to, lever the tenioner back & fit the belt to the last pully, Check the belt is on all pullys properly & your done

    you will have to loop the belt through the roller first then while you are installing the belt around the drum it will have tension. two people will need to install this since you have not done this before I assume. One to hold the drum up for you
