Go to repairclinic.com and click on "Repair Help". Locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link at the bottom left hand side of the screen and locate your Dryer Brand name. You should be able to find your diagram there.

SOURCE: Replacing the Drive Belt

I am not an expert but I do have a Hotpoint 9334 Tumble Dryer which I guess is similar to the 9314.
To replace belt or heater element you must remove the front panel complete with door.
Screws are different sizes in different places so note where they belong as you remove them.

1. Remove 2 screws at rear top which go through the brackets holding the top panel, slide back the top panel a little and lift it off.
2. Pull off the rotary timer knob and remove 2 screws beneath.
3. This is the tricky bit! Remove the the plastic panel which covers the switches etc.. This panel has 5 plastic fingers which secure it to the metal plate behind, locate the ends of the fingers where they pass through the metal plate. Using a metal rod or punch and a hammer, tap the ends of the fingers to push them back through the holes easing each in turn a little at a time to avoid distorting the plastic unduly. (This is a bit scary as you have to hit them quite hard and the fingers look fragile)
4. Open the door and remove the 4 screws then remove 3 screws at the top and 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel. Lift and ease forward the front panel, unhook the door catch release wire, pull off the electrical connectors and put the front panel aside.
5. Lay the machine on its back and remove 1 screw holding the element housing to the top plate and pull off the electrical connectors.
6. Fit the belt around the drum, through the idler pulleys and over the motor spindle.
7. Put it all back together.

SOURCE: fitting tumble dryer drive belt

If the belt you are replacing is the same length as the one you took off, it shouldn't be too hard to do. There should be a tensionor pulley attached to a spring that pulls the slack out. Typically, the belt will run on top of the tesnioner pulley, then under the motor drive pulley. Look at the dryer itself and make sure the spring didn't pop loose and fall in the bottom.

SOURCE: how to fit a belt on a tumble dryer

unplug the dryer,
220v is not fun
dryers are generic inside, regardless of maker
while you got it apart to replace the belt is a good time to clean out exhaust vent pipes and the squirrel cage fan, no lint, better air flow, less $$ to run

  • open case, most front panels are removed including door, remember to disconnect door switch wires, set panel aside
  • pull drum out
  • check drum support rollers
  • check drum felts, bushes guides
  • locate tensioner pulley, belts have been known to pull them out of the mounting when it breaks, check , reinstall if out
  • pick up broken belt off floor of case
  • take belt to parts store and match it, despite the huge number of dryer models there are very few belts.
  • If any felts or rollers are worn,stuck,damaged take them too to the parts store, and replace in pairs, despite the huge number of dryer models there are very few rollers or felts
  • after ensuring rollers anf felts and bearings are serviceable, loop new belt around drum at the wear mark from prior installation, reinsert drum
  • loop new belt around motor pulley.
  • pull tensioner pulley against spring to end of motion
  • loop belt around tensioner pulley
  • allow tensioner to slowly move back by spring tension till the belt is taut
put front panel back on, plugging in door switch
plug in mains
dry clothes
takes longer to type than to do

SOURCE: How do I fit a new belt to a Whirlpool AWZ650?

Found this dead easy, take top off and back off. Inside undo the star shaped screws, there are also a few screws that are a different shape when removed, these secure the back to an air inlet. Suggest you take note of where the screws come from, even write a number next to the hole with a marker pen and note which screws and in what order. There is also an earth attached to the drum, this is the only wire I removed. Take this back section off. You should then be able to remove the drum by wiggling it out and turning it sideways in the dryer casing.Then remove the fan bottom left, 4 screws and a clip in the centre, the clip was difficult to remove without spreading it so you may need to squeeze it back into shaped before putting it back on. The tensioners will probably have come out of their locators so put them back into place, this is easy to see when you look at them. This is proabably a good time to vacum any dust out. Spread the tensioners hook the belt over the drive shaft only, not the tensioners, and let them spring back, these will then spread when the belt stretches around the drum. Put the drum back on and pull the belt around it, make sure its lined up with the original belt markings otherwise it will just pull the belt off of the drive shaft. Put all the screws back in attache the earth to the drum and put the back on then the top on. I'm not a technician and haven't done this before, it took about 1 1/2hrs.

SOURCE: Simpson Maxidry Tumble dryer (Cloths dryer) How

Hi there, There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier. Once installed remove the tape. The dryer now works like a dream. See the attached photo. Good Luck!8e72e75.jpg
