DRUM WON't TURN on my Roper Dryer

I'm pretty sure its the belt because the motor is running. I just wanted to know if I have to take the entire thing apart just to replace the belt. I already have the casing on the back off but it seems pretty complicated to take the whole thing apart.

I have a Roper dryer res764kq2 and it will not tumble. I have taken the back panel off to find the belt is broken however I can determine how to get to the drum to replace the belt


Unplug the dryer and take it outside.
Step 1: remove the filter
Step 2: Remove 2 screws from filter chute on top of dryer
Step 3: Pull top towards you on each side slightly to raise it
Step 4: Remove 2 screws inside the front panel
Step 5: Unplug the lid switch using small screw driver
Step 6: Raise up the panel 1 inch then remove it
Step 7; Remove the drum
Step 8: clean it up and lube the roller & idler
Step 9: Remove the filter chute and clean it
Step 10: Place the new belt (341241) around the drum with
the ribbed side towards the drum surface making sure it is not twisted.A twisted belt will be ruined quickly.
Step 11: Use belt to help you place the drum back in the dryer.
Step 12: Make sure the rollers are in the groove and the felt is not tucked under.
Step 13: Insert the idler into the floor beneath the motor puller and raise up on it. Then loop the belt through the idler and onto the motor pulley.
Step 14: Turn the drum a bit by hand making sure the belt is on track and not twisted.
Step 15: Replace front panel
Step 16 plug in lid switch
Step 17 Snap down the top install the screws to the filter chute and shove the filter back in.
Step 18: Give it a dry run fer a sec to make sure it works well before throwing any clothes in there.
Step 19: Grab a cold one. You deserve it!

Kenmore Heavy Duty Plus Dryer 86273100 drum won't spin


How could the belt be in working order if the drum doesn't spin? Check to see if the belt has come off the motor. If the motor runs but your dryer doesn't spin, the belt is off. If the motor runs with the belt on but it still won't spin then you'll have a lot of black smoke because your drum is jammed. In other words, there are a number of things that could be wrong, but not very many.

After replacing my belt and drum rollers my roper dryer has a clicking noise as it rotates


Could be a lot of things causing it, blower wheel, motor, idler pulley, rollers. Dryers have several moving parts that could cause a clicking sound. The blower fan could be coming into contact with something. There is a motor, tensioner and a belt that turn the main drum, the tensioner for the belt could be loose thus causing the clicking noise as well.

I'm trying to figure out where part #3346 goes on a roper REX5634. Pretty simple right? But I can't find it anywhere and no where looks obvious. help! Pleeez


if your part number is correct it would be the idler pulley tensioner for the drum belt and installs right next to the dryer motor inside the units lower area to keep belt tension on the drum belt

I want to know how to put the belt on my roper dryer model is RES7646KQ2


This method works on Whirlpool,Kenmore, but I am not l00% sure of Roper, you might give it a try.
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

The belt broke drum won't turn


Hello Friend, Replacing a dryer belt is very simple. Just remove front of dryer cabinet. unplug wires from dryer door switch. Just slide a new belt over the drum with the belt grooves facing to the inside. Underneath drum you will see a tention wheel next to motor. Install belt around tention wheel and around motor shaft pully. Re-install front dryer cabinet. Make sure to plug in the wires to the door switch and make sure that the drum is re-inserted back over the felt glide on inner cabinet front. Happy to help, Tim.
