Replacing belt on westinghouse 5kg LD505E dryer


Check YouTube - there are tons of videos on replacing the belt in dryers. You have to dismantle the frame in order to wrap the belt around the drum. Sheet metal screws hold dryers together - it is a fairly simple job, once you are acquainted with the general procedure.

Westinghouse Dryer Belt Diagrams and Replacement


Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.


For all Westinghouse models use this diagram:

Either your dryer vent is clogged or your heating element / ignition coil has failed. It's called a hot surface igniter

Changing dryer belt on kirkland/whirlpool dryer took apart dryer but dont see where belt suppose to mount.


Hello. The belt goes around the tub and the tension pulley. In fact, it is always a good idea to replace both the belt and the idler/tension pulley at the same time. J.

If you want a schematic go to searsdirect.com and enter your model number. J.

Changing the belt


goes around idler pulley and motor. idler pulley fits into slots on bottom of dryer and the belt tension holds it in place. looking at it from the front and going clockwise the belt goes around the drum and then around the motor pulley and thru the idler pulley. in fact if you put the bottom loop of the belt thru the pulley from the left you then loop it around the motor pulley.

Need to replace drum belt


Most dryers have a tensioner pulley that the belt needs to go around to keep it tight. The belt goes around the motor pulley and the drum, but it goes around the tensioner pulley in a way that would keep it tight (you also need to release the tension on the tensioner to get the belt around it) If there's not a tensioner pulley there has to be some other means of putting tension on that belt, look around the the other pulleys that the belt goes around.

My dryer needs a new belt. I opened the front panel and removed the broken belt but I am not sure how to put on the new one. I know it goes around the drum but does it go in the middle or near the back...


Cheryl the belt goes in line with the pulleys. 1st Put the belt around the drum. 2nd put the belt around the pulley on the motor. 3rd pull down on the idler pulley and set it so that is pushes on the back side of the belt. Remember the ribs on the belt go against the drum. When done the pulley will take up the tension on the belt. Hope this helps.

Dryer belt replacement


To replace the belt, you have to take the front off the dryer and lift out the drum. With the new belt, place it around the drum and with the drum in place put the excess belt through the idler pulley or bracket (depending on your model), then around the motor pulley. You push the bracket or idler arm toward the motor to get the "loop" of the belt around the pulley on the motor. Hope this helps! Paul Hoffmanns
