Check the dryer belt diagrams here. If you routing the belt correctly, make sure it's about the same length as the old belt. BTW, if the idler is bare metal where it touches the belt - something (wheel) is missing.

Good luck

I have a Kenmore Gas Dryer (model 11087471810) that threw its belt. I have the replacement belt and know how to replace that. When I opened the bottom of the dryer, I noticed the Idler pulley sitting at...


The idler pulley/tensioner fastens into two slots in the base of the dryer to the left of the motor . The belt goes around the drum then through the idler to the motor pulley ,you have to make a loop with the excess belt and feed it through the idler pulley, i normally pull the plastic pulley towards the right side of the dryer to give enough belt to go around the motor pulley then let the plastic pulley rest on the backside of the belt. do not turn the drum too much as you may pull the belt back off .

Belt drum replacement


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured dryer (which inlcudes Kenmore, Roper, Estate, Kitchenaid, and Frigidaire), just follow these steps:

a. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

b. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

c. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and locate diagram H.

NOTE: It is normal for the idler pulley to come loose when there is no belt tension.

If your dryer is not manufactured by Whirlpool, or if you simply aren't sure, please post back with your model number so I can give you more accurate information. I hope you find this helpful.

Need to install drive belt- lady kenmore dryer..loop designation


The belt probably broke first, which caused the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal. With no tension on the pulley it will commonly fall over. To re-install, follow these steps:

1. Loop the new drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. If this is a Kenmore dryer, it will be manufactured by Whirlpool. Refer to diagram H. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Cant figure out how the belt tensoner works to hold the belt tight i have a kenmore 70 series electric dryer


There are 2 slots underneath the motor pulley.
The flat part of the tensioner goues in these slots.
The roller wheel will then be on your left.
With the belt around the drum, run the belt under the wheel and through the tensioner, then over the motor pulley.

Belt and assembly trouble. Please help!!


Hi,
Yes, there is a tension pulley but I"m at a loss as to how you're burning the belt, if not routed around the tensioner... seems to me you'd have a world of belt slack.
You might check and see if you can freely spin the drum, or if it seems to be locked-up. There may be an obstruction, keeping it from rotating... it shouldn't require so much effort.
Just a suggestion... Good luck.

KENMORE SERIES 80 DRYER..The Tensioner use it or not and how?


To fit the new belt, you will need the idler pulley (tensioner)...

The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, pull it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).

If you still need help, I will try to provide you with a diagram shortly.
Good luck!

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.
