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.
Some machines have a top that hinges and tilts to the back.
Remove the lint filter screws and filter.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards so you do not have to be removed the top completly.
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.

Stuck drivers seat belt. is there a simple fix?


The simplest fix is to fit a new belt. Don't mess around with seat belts, your life is worth much, much more. Some manufacturers are starting to suggest a seat belt replacement after 3- 4 years.

TIMER BELT BREAKING


I am assuming you mean timing belt as these cars did not come stock with timer belts. You need to get a timing belt and fix it. Just hope that when the belt broke you did not bend any valves as that will be costly to fix.

How to fix a belt that is making a loud noise on a 1994 Ford Taurus


If it is a loud squeaking sound, the belt is stretched out too far for the tensioning pulley to take up the slack. Check if the belt has grease or oil on it. If it does find the cause, fix the cause and then change the belt...there is no tension adjustment to be made,

I have an old White, model STD270 with a disintegrated belt


A belt replacement should be easy, first you need to measure how long a belt is needed by taking a piece of twine and placing it where the belt will go and using it to measure how long the belt need to be. Belts come in different sizes such as 14 1/2, 13 3/8 etc.

How do I tighten the AC belt


Should be a self tightening system. If belt is loose then more than likely a pulley is going bad and needs replaced.
