I have a TEDS680EQZ, it may be the same.
(1) You need to remove the lint screen,
(2) remove the two screws and place then somewhere they won't fall and get lost.
(3 & 4) Slide a metal spatula into the right and left front corners of the lid and push in gently while lifting the cover carefully.
(5) After you have the lid open have someone hold it it up or prop it open. Using a 5/16 nut driver remove the two screws (one on each side) and insert the pointy tip of the spatula or a small screwdriver into the wire harness to separate the two ends.
(6) Remove the door while holding the drum with your hand inside the drum. Slide the Front panel upwards and away to remove it. DO NOT let go of the drum this will be a pain if you drop it.
(7) have some one take over holding the door and look below the drum near the rear.
(8) the belt probably slipped off and is now wedged between the big roller at the top of the assembly. These are slightly springy so you can manipulate it to get the belt back to where it is suppose to be.
(9) Put everything back in the reverse order and you are back in business.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
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.

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 WHIRLPOOL TEDS840PQ0 dryer wont turn on. The


Check the house electrical panel dryer circuit breaker pair--push off, then on. Try the dryer again. If still nothing, measure the voltage across the two slanted slots in the dryer power socket. It should measure: ~230 volts AC. If at or near zero, either one of the breaker pair is defective, or a wire is open from the breaker to the socket. If you read ~230 volts, then the problem is within the dryer--motor runs, but drum doesn't turn (broken belt), or motor doesn't run (bad controller, motor, door switch, start switch. Does the unit get hot? Need more help on your end.

Burning Smell from Belt on Whirlpool Dryer


Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

Drum will not turn


YOUR BELT ON YOUR DRYER IS BROKEN. THAT IS WHY YOUR DRUM WON'T SPIN. YOU CAN BUY A NEW BELT FOR YOUR DRYER AT ANY PLACE THAT SELLS APPLIANCES.

ELECTRIC DRYER WON'T TUMBLE


Possibly the belt assembly. if you open the door and try to turn the drum does it turn with a little resistance, noises? this model has rollers, pulley, and a four groove belt 92 1/4" , sometimes the pulley sticks after yrs of use, belts wear, drum misaligns. the humming should be the motor trying to work.
