It sounds like it is the belt. When the dryer heats up the belt expands a little and when it gets wore out, the tensioner doesn't have enough spring to keep it tight. It might work a little when it's cold before the belt expands.
This belt should work for your dryer but verify the length.

Here is a helpful Youtube video on how to do the repair.

Here is a link to the Service Manual

The bottom of this link shows some typical ways a belt runs past a tension wheel and links for your dryer. If you replace yours I would recommend taking a couple pictures before removing the old one so you can refer to them when installing the new one.

1997 Jeep cherokee larado squeals replaced the drive belt a few times and it keeps tearing


Inspect the belt tensioner for the following conditions:
Noise
  • If the belt squeals, the tensioner force may be insufficient. Check the belt length gauge, if the length is correct, replace the tensioner.
  • If the tensioner clatters or rattles during engine operation, there may be internal interference or wear. Replace the tensioner.
  • If the belt chirps, you may have a worn pulley or tensioner or cracks in the tensioner bas or arm. Check the mounting bolts, if they are okay, replace the tensioner.
Sticking or Seized Tensioner or Idler
  • If the tensioner does not operate smoothly or doesn't move, you may have: internal thrust surface damage/wear, internal damage/wear, or a broken spring, replace the tensioner.
Appearance
  • Inspect the tensioner arm for cracks or other damage. If the tensioner is broken, it should be replaced.
  • Look for excessive tensioner movement at idle, which can indicate internal wear, an out-of-round pulley or loose mounting bolts. Check the mounting bolts, it they are in good condition, replace the tensioner.
  • Make sure the tensioner is not tilted or misaligned. Also make sure a gap exists between the tensioner arm and base. If you notice a problem, check the mounting surface, it the surface is okay, replace the tensioner.
Belt Tracking
  • If the belt does not track properly on the pulley tracking surface, you'll need to troubleshoot the problem. Check the mounting bolts and the system alignment. Then, make sure the correct belt is being used for the vehicle. If all of these things are intact, replace the tensioner.
Belt Length Indicator
  • A belt length indicator is built into each tensioner.
  • The gauge identifies the effective operating range of the tensioner.
  • It consists of a pointer and either two or three length marks.
    • On a three-mark gauge minimum belt length, maximum belt length and ideal belt length are indicated.
    • On a two-mark gauge only minimum belt length and maximum belt length are indicated.
    • Ideal belt length on a two-mark gauge is generally half way between the minimum and the maximum.
  • When a belt wears and stretches with age the tensioner will move towards the maximum belt length to maintain proper tension.
  • As the pointer nears the maximum length mark, replace the belt.

Replacing belt but it not fitting. it the same length as old one.it not tight enough


Hi , you may feel both the v-belt the same length but actually they are differrent. Please check the code of old/ previous belt and replace it with the same code. Otherwise , look for tensioner adjustment bolts to correct the belt tension.

Needs new belt. Is the belt a common item?


Hello Stevenand266,

I understand that you are having a problem with your dryer, you need a belt. Almost all dryers are belt driven so yes they are common items to a dryer. However, all belts for dryers are not the same size, shape or length. I would be glad to help assist you in your endeavor of replacing the belt if you can post a make and model of the dryer in question.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

I'm trying to replace the belt on a Hotpoint VTD00P tumble dryer. I've successfully removed the sides and front, fitted the replacement belt around the drum but just can't get it to stretch enough to fit...


There is a tool available, but it is not worth the expense of buying it for a one off repair.
Best way to do it is to geta long piece of steel rod, or a long screwdriver, and place it behind the belt, lever the belt down and over the motor pulley, it is difficult, so persist with it and you should get the belt on.
If you can slacken the front securing screw holding the motor, down this will give you a bit more leeway to fit the belt.
Again it is difficult, but I have done it this way on every occasion I have fitted a new belt.

My kenmore electric dryer has a metal pulley with no wheel and it doesn't give enough tension to the new belt to turn it


Check the dryer belt diagrams here. If you routing the belt correctly, make sure it's about the same length as the old belt. BTW, if the idler is bare metal where it touches the belt - something (wheel) is missing.

Good luck
