Question about LG Dryers
My LG TDC70045E SILVER Tumble Dryer drum is slipping only by a few millimetres every rotation. It seems there is some play in how it is fixed - looking at the inside of the drum, at the back, there are five spigots it is sitting on, and it moves about on these spigots. It is about 3 years old.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You must route the belt either in front of or slip it behind the drum to get it down to the drive wheel. You should remove the front panel to be able to do this the best.

SOURCE: BELT WON'T TURN THE DRUM
there is a tensioner pulley as well as the drum and motor
It hooks into a slot, usually on the floor of the case, and has a spring that pulls it against the belt to tension the belt.
Broken belts have been known to knock the tensioner out of place, it should be sitting on the floor of the case as should its spring.
There is usually ony one slot for it to sit in, self evident if you know to look for it
loop the belt around the drum.
slide the belt down the drum directly over the motor pulley
loop the belt around the motor pulley
pull the tensioner pulley hard to the end of its travel against its spring
wrap the belt around the tensioner pulley
release the tensioner so the spring pulls it against the belt
rotate the drum by hand to ensure the belt is aligned and does not pull offf the pulleys
its easier than it looks seeing a broken belt in the bottom of the case.
tensioner may be on the bottom run pushing up, or on the top run pulling down

2: Remove the front door assembly (2 screws holding the hinge to the drier carcase)
3: Remove the top cover (2 screws at the rear, then slide the top backwards and lift off). It's a good idea to remove any fluff from the innards at this point.
5: Remove the cover over the drum bearing and earth strap (2 screws)
6: Remove the cover over the fan assembly (numerous screws)
8: Remove the fan vanes (3 hex screws holding 2 metal flanges that make up the impeller fan)
9: Remove all screws around the rear cover and gently lift it up (I supported one edge with a basin perched on the rear of the drum, it gives access to the motor chassy etc. There's a vent tube that will come dislodged at this point; it's easy to relocate later.
11: Carefully feed the belt past one idler wheel and then over the motor pulley. Slowly turn the drum slightly to encourage the belt to feed round the second idler wheel.
13: Replace the rear cover (make sure the vent tube is seated correctly at front and rear). Tighten all screws.
15: Replace the drum bearing circlip (I took the opportunity of rotating the bearing through 180 degrees). Replace the copper earthing strap.
16: Replace the fan housing cover and drum bearing cover. (Make sure the heating element is free of fluff and crud)
18: Fire up the beast!!! It may smell a little if there's anything still on the heating element.
