The belt has come off the dryer and I can't figure out the configuration to put it back on, therefore the dryer wont turn


Some of the belts are counterintuitive to reinstall. although there are several different styles there are usually four - five components: Drum, belt, motor pulley and the spring pulley (sometimes there is a also a stationary pulley). Please double check but a lot of dryers have a diagram inside the dryer housing. If not, place the belt around the drum then the stationary pulley (if equipped) then the motor pulley and finally the spring pulley. Try to support the drum loosely if the spring pulley gives you a problem, on some models the motor mounts are adjustable, which you can use to reduce the strain. (You can always adjust it after the drum and pullies are secure) Hope this helps. Good Luck!

The roller doesn't spin, though there is heat coming out. What can be the problem


If the dryer is heating, but the drum fails to turn, this is usually caused by a broken dryer belt. To replace the belt on a Whirlpool Duet series dryer, you need to follow these steps:


1. UNPLUG the dryer before servicing. Dangerous voltage is still present inside the dryer even when it is turned off.

2. Remove the top panel of the dryer by locating and removing the screws holding the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then come off. The belt should be present tightly wrapped around the drum. If not, its likely the belt is broken and lying in the bottom of the cabinet.

3. Open the door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You will not be able to remove the air blower cover with the lint screen in place.

4. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by locating and removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: Propping the front feet of the dryer up can provide you better access to the screws (a 2x4 works well for this).

5. Disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (usually yellow wires with a white plug to the right of the blower assembly) and any ground wires that may be connected to the front panel.

6. Remove the air blower cover by locating and removing the mounting screws.

NOTE: This is a good time to clean the blower fan housing, squirrel cage motor and dryer interior cabinet.


7. Locate the two screws that hold the operator console in place. There should be one on each side under the top panel. Remove the screws and carefully lift the panel straight up.

NOTE: You do not need to disconnect the ribbon cables. Carefully lay the console across the top of the dryer out of the way.

8. Disconnect the door switch connector plug and remove the dryer front panel by locating the four screws that hold it in place. Loosen the two screws along the bottom of the panel and leave in place. Remove the top two screws and lift up and turn the whole front panel slightly counter-clockwise to release the drum supports from the dryer drum.

NOTE: Make sure the dryer door is closed when removing the front panel to avoid damaging the door hinges.

9. Reach in behind the air blower with both hands and pull the idler pulley to the right with your right hand to release the tension and remove the dryer belt (if still attached) from the drive motor.

10. Install new belt around the dryer drum making sure the ribbed side faces towards the drum.

11. Reinstall the dryer belt by releasing the belt tension pulley again (as described in step 9), then, with your left hand loop the belt over the drive motor pulley. Release the idler pulley making sure the belt rests on the drive motor pulley. You should feel the belt tighten with tension.

NOTE: If you need further clarification on how to properly route the dryer belt you can go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page, locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section. Refer to diagram K.

12. Reinstall the front panel by turning it slightly counter-clockwise and aligning the front drum supports under the front of the drum. Once the supports are under the drum, turn the front panel clockwise and lift up, placing it on the bottom two screws. Reinstall and tighten the top two screws.

13. Reinstall the door switch connector plug and reinstall the operator console. Use caution not to put too much stress on the console ribbon cables.

14. Reinstall dryer top panel.

15. Reinstall air blower cover and reconnect the auto dry sensor and ground wire.

16. Reinstall toe panel by inserting the top portion first and pushing up. Push lower portion of the panel in place and reinstall screws.



Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices will vary between sites so shop and compare. The drive belt part number for the model you listed this question under is 661570.



NOTE: This model dryer has a broken belt switch mounted on the belt tension puley. If the pulley loses tension form either a broken belt, or a tension pulley spring that has come loose, the dryer will stop tumbling. So, if the belt is still intact, check the tension pulley for a loose or missing tension spring. The first three web sites I listed have exploded view parts illustrations to assist you locating and properly identifying any part you may need. Refer to the "Cabinet Parts" section for an illustration of the belt and drive components. The belt is listed as item 30 and the belt switch is listed as item 5.


I know this may seem like a lot, but its actually fairly simple if you follow the steps provided. Read through everything before attempting any repairs. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Changing dryer belt on kirkland/whirlpool dryer took apart dryer but dont see where belt suppose to mount.


Hello. The belt goes around the tub and the tension pulley. In fact, it is always a good idea to replace both the belt and the idler/tension pulley at the same time. J.

If you want a schematic go to searsdirect.com and enter your model number. J.

My maytag dryer makes a loud noise when on. It sounds like a belt. Can I fix it and how? It's an older model, I don't know where the model number would be. It's loudest when first turned on. Thankyou


To remove the belt go the the rear of the dryer and remove the two or four screws holding the inspection door near the bottom corner of the dryer.Remove this small door. Unplug the dryer. Look inside and see how the old belt is positioned on the pulleys. Releive the tention on the belt by moving the belt tentioner and sliding the belt off the motor pulley.
Go the the front of the dryer and remove the two screws holding the front panel on. Tilt the dryer front forward and remove. Mark and remove the two door switch wires and move the front panel out of the way. Undo the four screws holding the drum support from the front of the dryer and remove. Grab the drum and sllide it forward out of the dryer.
Vaccum the inside of the dryer and inspect to make sure the rollers move freely. If they don't move freely or show wear, replace rollers and lubricate with light oil. Replace belt.
Put belt over drum. Reinstall the drum into the dryer. On some of the older dryers there were teflon drum gliders located inside the front drum support. Inspect glides and replace if needed.
Reinstall the front drum support and four screws. Reinstall the front panel with two screws.
Replace door switch wires.
Lift the top and make sure the belt is positioned on the drum where the old belt was.
Go the rear of the dryer and pinch the belt sliding threw the belt tentioner under the pulley and over the belt pulley.
Reinstall the rear door with all the screws.
Faster the top down and plug the dryer in and test.
Your done.

Dryer squeaks loudly


This is a problem with either the pulley bearings or the belts.
Check the bearings by taking the belt off and listening for squeaks at each pulley. Also check the drum bearings the same way. If the belts look in good shape, reinstall, otherwise put some new belts on too.

Fitting the belt to the hoover 5050ed


nope,, but
all dryers are generically the same
remove the front panel and door
pull the drum
loop the belt around the drum, at apporximately the wear marks of the old belt
reinsert the drum
loop the belt around the motor pulley
pull the tensioner pulley hard against the spring to the end of its travel
loop the belt around the tensioner pulley
allow the tensioner to move back under spring pressure to tension the belt
rotate the drum by hand to make sure the belt is aligned and not coing to jump off the pulleys
reinstall front panel & door
26740a0.jpg the tensioner may be on the bottom belt run pusshing up, or the top run pulling down
breaking belts sometimes pull the tensioner out of its mounts, there is only one place that the tensioner will reinstall.

Its a standard whirpool dryer, rebadged as hoover, so the local parts guy has the belts rollers felts and glides as necessary, they are common to all the dryers whirlpool makes.

Change a belt?


Replacing the belt is not that hard.
  1. You have to take the back of the dryer off.
  2. Then lift the tension arm on the motor releasing the pressure on the belt.
  3. Inspect the tension pulley, checking the bearings on the pulley.
  4. Wrap the new belt around the drum, and wrap it around the tension pulley, lifting the tension pulley to adjust the belt.
  5. Reinstall the back of the dryer.
