I need a diagram on how to open up the back or front to install the dryer drum belt for my Frigidaire FLSE60RGS0. we bought the belt, and I did get a diagram on how to install belt, but doesn't show us...


Disconnect the water, vent duct, and electric connection to gain access to the rear of the machine. Be prepared to catch any water that comes out of the hoses.

On the rear of the dryer, remove the panel that's behind the dryer section (upper panel).

If the belt is intact, make a drawing of the belt's route.

If the belt is broken, remove and discard it.

Slide the new belt onto the drum to approximately where it belongs (lined up with the motor pulley). I think this model might have a groove for the belt where it rides on the drum.

With the slack portion of the belt, squeeze it to make a loop and push it through and onto the tensioner pulley on the bottom of the dryer.

Using the tensioner spring to relax the belt (pull it toward the motor pulley), slip the belt onto the motor pulley.

Check the belt by pulling on it to see if the drum, motor and tensioner are rotating freely (don't pinch your fingers!).

I am not the best at abstract description. I hope this helped.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Change drier belt on model number 41794702300 Kenmore stackable


1. UNPLUG UNIT. 2. On the front of the unit, remove two screws from the bottom panel. Remove it and you will see two screws holding the top panel and door in place. 3. Remove the screws and gently pull up and out on the door panel, INSURE NOT TO PULL ON THE WIRES LEADING TO THE DOOR SWITCH. 4. Remove wires from door switch. MAKE SURE TO NOTE WHICH WIRES CONNECT TO WHICH TAB. 5. Set door aside and you will have complete access to drum. Remove old belt, if necessary, noting now it is around the drum and weaved through or around the tension bar below the drum. 6. Once removed, or if there is no belt, or a broken belt, put the new belt around the drum so that the slack hangs below the drum. NOTE: You will probably see a black mark around the drum where the belt has laid, about in the middle of the drum. Lay the belt on that path. 6A. Lay on your back with both hands available, raise drum slightly to get access to the belt. Take slack in belt, raise tension bar slightly out of the way, bring belt UNDER the pulley on tension bar and put it around the pulley/spindle on the motor. (This may take another hand) Slowly lower tension bar back down to make contact with belt, applying tension to belt. 7. Get the door panel and reconnect the door switch. 8. Start to put door panel in place, while slightly raising drum to fit into position, careful to the raise to high or **** drum out of position off the back rollers or cause belt to slip off. Push door panel into place and put screws in. 9. Once you've got the door secure, test the belt by reaching inside and manually turning the drum clockwise until it seems to turn easily with not bumps. This is allowing the belt to settle into place and insuring it is not going to pop off; if it does, repeat the operation. If it turns easily, move on to... 10. Replace lower panel. 11. Plug in unit and test to insure drum moves freely. If not, you may need to readjust the way the door panel fits in place with the drum, or the belt on the tension bar. 12. If you need further help, please let me know.
Good luck. It's simpler than it sounds. G

The roller doesn't spin, though there is heat coming out. What can be the problem


If the dryer is heating, but the drum fails to turn, this is usually caused by a broken dryer belt. To replace the belt on a Whirlpool Duet series dryer, you need to follow these steps:


1. UNPLUG the dryer before servicing. Dangerous voltage is still present inside the dryer even when it is turned off.

2. Remove the top panel of the dryer by locating and removing the screws holding the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then come off. The belt should be present tightly wrapped around the drum. If not, its likely the belt is broken and lying in the bottom of the cabinet.

3. Open the door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You will not be able to remove the air blower cover with the lint screen in place.

4. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The panel comes off by locating and removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: Propping the front feet of the dryer up can provide you better access to the screws (a 2x4 works well for this).

5. Disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (usually yellow wires with a white plug to the right of the blower assembly) and any ground wires that may be connected to the front panel.

6. Remove the air blower cover by locating and removing the mounting screws.

NOTE: This is a good time to clean the blower fan housing, squirrel cage motor and dryer interior cabinet.


7. Locate the two screws that hold the operator console in place. There should be one on each side under the top panel. Remove the screws and carefully lift the panel straight up.

NOTE: You do not need to disconnect the ribbon cables. Carefully lay the console across the top of the dryer out of the way.

8. Disconnect the door switch connector plug and remove the dryer front panel by locating the four screws that hold it in place. Loosen the two screws along the bottom of the panel and leave in place. Remove the top two screws and lift up and turn the whole front panel slightly counter-clockwise to release the drum supports from the dryer drum.

NOTE: Make sure the dryer door is closed when removing the front panel to avoid damaging the door hinges.

9. Reach in behind the air blower with both hands and pull the idler pulley to the right with your right hand to release the tension and remove the dryer belt (if still attached) from the drive motor.

10. Install new belt around the dryer drum making sure the ribbed side faces towards the drum.

11. Reinstall the dryer belt by releasing the belt tension pulley again (as described in step 9), then, with your left hand loop the belt over the drive motor pulley. Release the idler pulley making sure the belt rests on the drive motor pulley. You should feel the belt tighten with tension.

NOTE: If you need further clarification on how to properly route the dryer belt you can go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page, locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section. Refer to diagram K.

12. Reinstall the front panel by turning it slightly counter-clockwise and aligning the front drum supports under the front of the drum. Once the supports are under the drum, turn the front panel clockwise and lift up, placing it on the bottom two screws. Reinstall and tighten the top two screws.

13. Reinstall the door switch connector plug and reinstall the operator console. Use caution not to put too much stress on the console ribbon cables.

14. Reinstall dryer top panel.

15. Reinstall air blower cover and reconnect the auto dry sensor and ground wire.

16. Reinstall toe panel by inserting the top portion first and pushing up. Push lower portion of the panel in place and reinstall screws.



Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices will vary between sites so shop and compare. The drive belt part number for the model you listed this question under is 661570.



NOTE: This model dryer has a broken belt switch mounted on the belt tension puley. If the pulley loses tension form either a broken belt, or a tension pulley spring that has come loose, the dryer will stop tumbling. So, if the belt is still intact, check the tension pulley for a loose or missing tension spring. The first three web sites I listed have exploded view parts illustrations to assist you locating and properly identifying any part you may need. Refer to the "Cabinet Parts" section for an illustration of the belt and drive components. The belt is listed as item 30 and the belt switch is listed as item 5.


I know this may seem like a lot, but its actually fairly simple if you follow the steps provided. Read through everything before attempting any repairs. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Tub won't turn belt broken ,how do you replace belt?


You can remove the lower panel below the door and see the motor and belt. To replace the belt you need to unscrew the front panel and slip the belt over the front of the drum. Reattach the top front panel with screws and loosen the tension roller from the front bottom access panel. Hook the belt around the motor pulley and tension roller. Tighten the tension roller and turn the drum by hand to make sure there are no restrictions and the belt and motor pulley are turning. It is best to inspect the drum rollers on the bottom of the drum to make sure the rollers have no play in them. If you can wiggle the rollers front to back replace them too. Replace the rest of the panels and check the units operation.

I need to replace the dryer belt


The belt on a dryer is inside the body, usually accessed and changed as follows

most base dryers
  • unplug dryer(220v is Not Fun)
  • remove lint screen
  • undo screws inside lint screen holder, screwing it to case lid (so lid can tilt up)
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, release spring catches under front corners of case lid
  • raise case lid
  • remove screws 1/3 way down front corners of body holding front panel on
  • remove door switch cable from door switch
  • lift door off set aside
maytag
  • remove screws from bottom bend of front panel
  • lift front panel off
  • remove doo switch cable
  • sent front panel aside
  1. drum motor felts and bearings are now accessible.
  2. lift drum and withdraw fully forwards
  3. with drum removed check support rollers for free movement, check drum slides and/or drum felts for wear, easier to replace now, if worn, than have bearings or slides cause belt to break again.
  4. loop belt loosely around drum at wear marks from prior installation
  5. reinsert drum onto rollers bearings slides felts as installed.
  6. loop belt around motor pulley
  7. pull tensioner pulley against spring to end of its travel
  8. loop belt around tensioner pulley
  9. relax tensioner pulley to tighten belt
  10. rotate drum by hand to ensure belt is aligned
reassemble case in reverse order.

Notes
There are not many belt, felt, support roller sizes the local parts guy will have a belt, felt, roller to fit,

Tensioner pulley may not be in place, breaking belts often pull them out of their mounts, the pulley and spring will be lying on the case floor, there is only one way they fit in to their mounts so they are easy to reinstall

tensioner sketch is approximate, pulley may be on top run pulling down, or bottom run pushing up

the repair is easy, it takes longer to type or read this than it does to repair the dryer

Belts ~$14 Support Rollers ~$14/pair, felts/slides upto ~$25
New dryer +$200 - its a good repair

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
3cd9043.jpg the tensioner may push Up on the lower 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

BELT WON'T TURN THE DRUM


there is a tensioner pulley as well as the drum and motor
It hooks into a slot, usually on the floor of the case, and has a spring that pulls it against the belt to tension the belt.
Broken belts have been known to knock the tensioner out of place, it should be sitting on the floor of the case as should its spring.
There is usually ony one slot for it to sit in, self evident if you know to look for it
loop the belt around the drum.
slide the belt down the drum directly over the motor pulley
loop the belt around the motor pulley
pull the tensioner pulley hard to the end of its travel against its spring
wrap the belt around the tensioner pulley
release the tensioner so the spring pulls it against the belt
rotate the drum by hand to ensure the belt is aligned and does not pull offf the pulleys
reassemble case
dry clothes
its easier than it looks seeing a broken belt in the bottom of the case.

If the belt is broken, you can first check by removing the lower panel under the door. There are a couple of tabs in the front, about 3inches in from each side. Place a putty knife in the seam and push straight in while pulling out on the panel at the same time. The tabs should release from each side and you will be able to lower the panel to look inside. If the belt is broken, you will be able to see it with no problem. To replace the dryer belt, follow these steps: 1. Unplug the machine or turn off the main breaker. There are still live voltages present with the machine turned off. 2. Remove the bottom panel. 3. Remove the top panel. This can be accomplished on a couple different ways depending on the model you have. a. Facing the dryer, grasp the rear corner of the top panel on either side and pull towards you. This will release the plastic tabs and the panel should lift up and can be rested against the wall. You may have to slide the dryer out some to make sure the top stays in the rested position. b. The other method involves taking the dryer console off. There will be three screws that you will have to remove. The top will slide towards you and off. 4. Remove the front panel by following these steps: a. You will need to remove the door switch connector first, followed by the door springs on each side at the bottom. Remember, how they go back on. This is an important step later. If you forget, the door will fall open when you go to use it. The springs provide tension to prevent this. b. Take the lint screen out. c. Disconnect the moisture sensor wire (usually yellow and red in color) and ground wire (green) from the bottom of the panel. Remember to reconnect these. d. Remove the air vent housing under the front panel by removing 2 - 3 screws. e. There should be four screws remaining in the panel to remove. Take the bottom screws out first, followed by the top. The front panel should now come off. 5. Remove the drum. If the belt is broken this should be fairly easy. This would be a good time to oil those drum rollers in the back with some light machine oil, and to remove any lint or dirt. Only lubricate the spindle of the rollers where they meet the shaft. DO NOT put oil on the rollers themselves. This will cause slippage. 6. Wrap new belt around drum with the groove side down. Using the belt as a handle around the drum place the entire drum back in the casing. This can be tricky, but is easy if you follow these steps: a. Looking at the drum rollers, the right one can slide forwards and backwards, the left one stays stationary. Pull the right roller to it's forward most position. b. Using the belt as a handle with one hand, grab the front rim of the drum with the other hand. Insert the back of the drum on to the rollers by tilting the drum down to make sure the roller fits into the groove along the back of the drum. Carefully lift the drum into place and rotate CW a little to make sure the rollers seats in the drum groove and to make sure the drum seal does not fold inside in the drum. c. Now, here's the tricky part; getting the belt back on. There should be an idler pulley for the belt. It probably fell off if the belt broke. Re-insert the idler by placing into the slots in the casing bottom. The pulley should be pointed TOWARDS the drum. Now...this will take two hands. You will need to lie in the prone position and rest the drum on your left shoulder to keep it from falling off the rollers. A second person would be a big help at this time. Holding the pulley wheel in your LEFT hand, push up and to your RIGHT while keeping it seated in the mounting slots. This keeps tension on the pulley and will enable you to weave the belt UNDER the pulley wheel with your RIGHT hand and on to the drive motor shaft. If you do this correctly the smooth side of the belt will ride UNDER the pulley wheel. 7. Supporting the drum, place the front panel back in place. Re-install everything in the reverse order that I described before. Remember to re-install the door springs, the moisture sensor wire, ground wires and the door switch connector. These are easy to forget. I know this seems like a lot for dryer belt, but it can be done if you take your time and follow these steps. If you have any questions let me know.
