How to fit belt on Creda Reversair 37643 Tumble dryer


New belt is very tight, so you have to use more strength. Put it on motor and all other on "drum". Spin it easily and slowly but with strength until its done.


Be carefully, use gloves.

HOW TO FIT A DRUM BELT ON A TUMBLE DRYER KELVINATOR


Normally you loosen the bolts to the motor after fitting the belt around the drum. DON'T try to streach the belt to fit over the motor pullery.

What's your problem?i am trying to fit a drive belt to a hotpoint wma66p washing machine but cant stretch it around motor pulley and drum. i cant see a tensioner bolt. is there one?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is no tensioner bolt as such; tension is just maintained by the motor support bolts. Please see my notes on belt changes ;-0)

The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT AGAINST THE MOTOR OR FRAME; THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I have bought the new belt but cant see how it fits on to the machine, when I put it on how I think it shoudl be it seems to big but it is pretty much the same length of the one that came off?


Sounds like you have the motor on top of the machine and the motor has moved. You will need to loosen 1 of the nuts on the motor, put the belt on and lever the motor to create tension on the belt then tighten the nut back up. Hope this helps.

How do I fit the new belt


You give no information on your machine, but normally you need to obtain access to the complete circumference of the drum to fit the belt. Depending on your machine you can either remove the front of the dryer, or release the rear bearing support so that you can slide the new belt over the drum. The belt then just slips over the motor pulley and you need to check on the belt tension, usually done by adjusting the motor.

Simpson Maxidry Tumble dryer (Cloths dryer) How


Hi there, There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier. Once installed remove the tape. The dryer now works like a dream. See the attached photo. Good Luck!8e72e75.jpg

How do i fit the replacement belt as i cant see how to adjust the motor


hello,

There is no adjustment to the motor,if you have the correct replacement belt then these are stretch fit belts.Firstly hold belt onto motor pulley then slowly turn onto main pulley whilst still holding on motor end you may find one side of big pulley easier than the other.It will take a lot of pulling round onto pulley and you may think its too tight but keep turning till its on then line it up in centre of main pulley.

Hope this helps,

Is60v belt replacement. The replacement belt seems difficult to fit.size/ belt number checked against old one & details are the same. What is the method of replacing / refitting the belt?


The belts do appear to be undersize, this is because they are a stretch belt, and this makes them very difficult to fit.
Remove the top cover and right hand side panel of dryer, this will give you access to the belt.
Move the front panel forward to fit the new belt on the drum, and then you really have to pull hard down on the belt to get it round the motor pulley.
It is very difficult.
Good luck.
