IF YOUR DRUM HAS CHANGED POSITION, IT MOST LIKELY HAS SOMETHING BROKEN INSIDE. SOME DRYERS HAVE A SINGLE SUPPORT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE REAR OF THE DRUM. YOU WOULD SEE THREE OR FOUR SCREWS IN THE INSIDE CENTER OF THE BACK OF THE DRUM. IF THAT BREAKS, IT WILL CAUSE THE DRUM TO TIP DOWNWARD IN THE BACK.

SOME DRYER DRUMS ARE SUPPORTED WITH A SUPPORT IN THE FRONT THAT THE FRONT OF THE DRUM HANGS ON.
THE DRYER WOULD HAVE TO BE TAKEN APART TO VERIFY WHAT HAS BROKEN AND NEEDS REPLACED.

How to install dryer belt for a ge model dbsr453gb3ww


  • Unplug the dryer and pull it out from the wall.

  • 2

    Remove the top of the dryer by opening the door and taking out the screws along the top of the opening, then lifting the top. Remove the front of the dryer by reaching down into the opening at the top and taking out the screws holding the front in place. Move the front piece out of the way just enough so you can get to the drum inside, without disconnecting the electrical wires running from the front piece to the unit.

  • 3

    Move to the back of the dryer and remove the screws holding on the small access panel at the bottom. Remove the panel. This will give access to the two pulleys holding the thin belt that runs around the drum. With your pencil and paper, draw a diagram showing exactly how the pulleys are strung. Then slip the belt off the pulleys so it's hanging loosely on the drum.

  • 4

    Return to the front of the dry and pull the belt off the drum from the front. Put the new belt on the drum from the front, laying the ribbed side against the surface of the drum.

  • 5

    Return to the back of the dryer and restring the belt through the two pulleys, using your diagram as a guide. Use your hands to manually turn the drum at least one full turn to make sure the belt is lined up.
    Things You'll Need

    • Screwdriver with multiple bits

The drum looks like it moved back and grinds on the back side


there are tracks on the drum so the rollers fit in there. i would look at the felt seal in the front and the front of the drum, see if they are in good condition if not will need to change those parts.

Can't Put Belt On


You have to remove the front of the dryer to
access the drum. First unplug the dryer.There are screws at the bottom of the front to remove the lower section. Once you remove that you can get to the screws for the door section. The front of the drum rides on the inside of the front panel so when you remove the panel the drum will drop down. Try to keep the drum in place with something to hold it up. Remove the old belt and place the new belt around the drum. Slid the belt back to where the belt used to ride and then loop the belt around the motor and the tension wheel. Make sure the tension wheel is tightening the belt. Hold up the drum and put the front panel back on. You may need a helper to hold things while you do this. Rotate the drum by hand and make sure it moves smoothly. Plug it back in and give it a try. I hope this helps. Any questions feel free to ask. Please rate me so I know if I'm Helping. Thanks.

Unsure how to access drier to put on new drive belt


Here is my own solution...
Disconnect from mains (of course) remove top (2 screws at back near top) Unplug electric connectors (on back panel, top RHS). Make sure note what goes where! Lie unit down on front remove screws (2) holding the drum spindle cover (centre of back) and remove cover pop off the circlip holding drum spindle, and washer unscrew back panel - hex headed screws round outside of back Remove screws at bottom of back panel which screw into the plastic vent housing (3 I think) Lift whole back off. (there's a plastic lip at bottom - need to pull away from this a bit) The drum spindle will be unsupported now, so don't move unit Full access now to drum and motor beneath Get and put on new belt reassemble.
Actually, having got into unit, found could not get belt from local spares shop (it had closed down), so bought new drier!

Drive belt on Zanussi TD520


You will need to take the drum out of the rear bearing by undoing one of the sides and the back panel. Use selotape to hold the new belt in place and use a longish 'philips' screwdriver so that it does not cut the belt if it slips and ease the belt over the pulley with grooves that is near the fan. It is tricky!

Belt


The top must be lifted and the front must come off so you can slide the new belt on. When that is done in the back you will see a panel to be removed. Slide the belt back and install it around the pulley on the motor. When you are done put it back together and wala. I hope this helped you out.

Zanussi TC7114W condenser Drier


belts do not figure 8
they look something like this
f6516ed.jpg the front panel comes off, to access the drum without removing bearings etc, and the belt can be placed easily, around the drum and motor pulley.
then pull the tensioner hard against its spring, loop the belt around the tensioner and allow the spring to tension the belt.
