ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to check/replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other connections.
Remove the lint filter screws and filter.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

How do you open the Frigidaire affinity dryer bc i think the belt is broken


If the belt is broken dryer will not tumble, you can turn drum and should be resistance to turn, if turns easy then belt is broken. This is a difficult repair. If you can't see how to open dryer you won't be able to replace belt.

Hotpoint dryer won't stay on


The belt is probably broken. Their is a broken belt switch which keeps the main wire winding from working if the belt is broken. To check for broken belt open the door and remove the screws holding down the top. Remove the top, then take the front off and inspect that puppy. Here is my crappy video:

Dyer will not turn on. Can hole the starter button in and dryer will run. remove and the dryer will stop running. When holding the start button the dryer does not heat. Any Idea's as to what may be...


broken belt or broken broken belt switch most likely. Open the door. Hold in the door switch and push the start button. Does the drum turn? If it does turn then the broken belt micro switch is where I would look first. If the drum don't turn of course I would replace the broken belt.
The only Kenmore dryer that has a broken belt switch is the 4 wheel drive model. Here is a video which shows how to get into this dryer and replace the belt:

My dryer turns on but does not turn the tumbler AROUND


Check belt & belt tensioner. Belt could be broken or tensioner spring broke releaving tension around motor pulley. You can do this by removing access panel on back of dryer, make sure you UNPLUG dryer before you do anything. Broken belt requires removing front drum end, not so easy, but do-able

Dryer runs belt not broken and tumbler doesn't spin


the belt may not be broken but it might be stretched past its limits check and see if the electric motor is spinning when the belt is off but my personal suggestion is take a digital picture of the belt on the pulley and tensioner so you can reference it when putting it back together

Stopped tumbling


First make sure your belt is broken.
Take a putty knife or a old CD and insert it between the top and the front panel about 2 inches in from the sides where the top and front come together.
Push the clips towards the back of the machine while pulling up on the top.
Once it is open you can tell if the belt is broken or not.
It you see no belt around the drum it is broken.
If you see a belt around the drum pull on it carefully.
If it does not come loose it is not broken.
After you do this, let me know the result.
We will then move on to step #2.
