All dryers have a belt tensioner installed. If your belt came off before opening the dryer up, the tensioner is laying at the bottom more than likely. It has a pulley on it for the belt and the pulley should be replaced as well

HOW DO U PUT A BELT ON A KENMORE DYER


You,ve got to flip it over and loosen the tension pully. The old belt should come off, then replace the belt and tighten the belt with the pully by moving it over.

Install dyer belt MAYTAG


Hello there
Here is a detailed instruction for you ok
  1. Remove the two screws that hold the control console to the dryer; they are located on each end of the console. Turn the control console forward onto its face. Disconnect the wiring harness from the dryer to the console. Press in on the locking tab and pull the connectors apart. Set the control panel out of your work area. To remove the top, insert a putty knife between the front and top panels. Locate the retaining clip and push in on it to release the corner of the top panel. Lift up on the corner and release the opposite retaining clip. Set the top panel out of the way. Two screws that attach the front panel to the sides are located at the top corners. Remove the screws and swing the top of the front panel out so that you can access the door switch wiring harness. Disconnect the wiring harness from the door switch and lift the front panel away from the dryer.
  2. Replace the Belt
  3. Locate the idler pulley by reaching behind the drum and motor assembly. Using your hand, push the idler pulley to the left to release tension on the belt2.gif. Notice the routing of the belt around the motor and idler arm for reference when attaching the new belt. Remove the belt from the motor pulley. Lift up on the drum slightly and remove the belt from the drum.

    With the rib side pointed inward, lift the drum up and set the belt around the drum. Route the belt through the motor pulley and idler pulley. Pull the idler pulley to the right to reapply tension to the belt. ok?
  4. not too hard
  5. hope this is verry helpful for you

Dryer


Your machine uses a belt tensioner of the type that the belt 'glides' on, creating a squeak noise that #1 will get worse and #2 is wearing out the belt. Replace the old tensioner with the one pictured here. The squeak will go away and the belt will last longer.
