Your not getting it onto the idler pulley,or your not routing the belt correctly,when it goes over the idler pulley correctly there will be a lot of belt tension then as you need to force the idler over to get the belt over it

SOURCE: how to replace the belt for a whirlpool ler5620kq1 dryer

It is a very tricky task to put this belt on but I think I can work you through it. When you get the belt around the drum and get to the idler, push the belt under the idler wheel and through the forks of the idler pully assy. attaching it to the pully on the motor. Tension should be on the idler pushing the wheel up toward the drum. Hope this helps.

How to replace drive belt


Unplug it from the electrical outlet.
Remove the back panel.
Look for the "idler-wheel" -- it takes-up the "slack" between the drive-motor and the rotating tumbler.
Loosen it, to put enough "slack" in the drive-belt that the drive-belt can be removed.
Take the belt to a dryer-service store, and get them to match it.
Connect the new belt to the drive-motor and the tumbler.
Adjust the "idler-wheel" to take-up the slack.
Replace the back-panel.
Add power.

HOW DO I PUT DRUM BELT ON A PORTABLE HAIER DRYER I HAVE ORDERED THE BELT IT CALLS FOR FROM HAIER COMPANY TWICE AND IT IS STILL TOO LONG MAYBE I AM PUTTING IT ON WRONG help please


Your idler pulley will take up the slack in it. It won't be real tight any way once on. If there is still a lot of slack when ou turn it on and the drum doesn't turn, then take it back. Take the old belt with you so that it can be matched uproperly.
