Picture of dryer Dryer Belt

Hello I took my dryer apart but I did not look to see how the belt goes on. Does anyone have a picture of how it is supposed to look? IThe pulley came a loose and I have no idea how it goes on. I have tried and tried but I can't get any tension on the belt. Please help. I have wet close and I don't want them to mildew.

Thanks in advance. A picture would sure help.

My belt is broken on my tumble dryer.took it apart and don't know how to put the new belt on


The belt goes around the drum, through the idler pulley onto the pulley on the motor. The idler fastens into several holes on the floor of the dryer.

My dryer drum will not turn...."how to change your dryer belt"


There are many styles and different models of dryers but the one thing they all have in common is the dryer has a belt that turns the drum.In the procedure below we will show you how to take apart your dryer,change your belt,and show you the correct threading of your belt. Here is a typical Kenmore dryer idler pulley(it has a plastic wheel on it) motor/pulley (the pulley is attached to the backside of the motor) and the belt configuration.Note the picture below.

Each different model dryer also has a different lint trap location. This location will have a bearing on how your dryer is taken apart and how to change your belt.

Note the location of your lint trap and choose the correct video on how to take your dryer apart. There are two different locations,on top,and in the door.

My GE DSXH43EA2WW Dryer is making a squeaking sound when running. Tends to get less noisey as the dryer continues to run


Hello
You will need to replace the dryer belt and inspect the belt rollers while you have it apart. If you go to the web link below it explains how to take apart the dryer to replace the belt, it has additional links to pictures and diagrams within the instructions. The first link is for replacement parts with diagrams of the dryer. Here is that link:

The next link is the Do It Yourself Article on replacing the dryer drum belt. while you have it apart remember clean the lint and dirt out of the cabinet interior. Here is the repair link:

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.

I took my dryer apart and when i put the belt on i can't get it tight. it was tight when i took it off


Maybe you just don't have the belt routed correctly - see the picture below. Yours should be similar to this:

Drum belt assembly


take the belt and put it around the drum with the grooves touching the drum, then push a loop of the belt thru the idler pulley bracket and hook it onto the motor pulley. then the idler pulley and bracket will cause tension on the belt. if you need to see a picture then search your model number on google and it should show you a picture of how the belt goes around the motor.
by the way you dont have a good model number, or it is too new to be in most web sites.

My belt came off my dryer, Help!


You should have a "tension pulley" that the belt goes around somewhere in the belt track. Usually a "wheel or pulley mounted on a spring" which looks like a flat piece if metal. Check to see if it has come out of its positon or the flat spring has broken. You can buy replacements if it has. Simply reposition the belt and push the tension pulley in such a way as to engage the belt correctly. That should fix it.
