Question about Kenmore Whispertone 29512 Vacuum
I would first check to see if the beater brush is turning freely. You should be able to turn it by hand. If you can not, remove it from the vacuum and clean any debris on the brush and especially on the ends that hold it in place. Some WD40 on the end pieces might help as well. There is usually a belt diagram on the plastic case of the vacuum where the belt itself is found. Best of luck.

Unplug the vacuum cleaner and turn it upside down, flat on the floor, with the roller brush facing up.
Remove the the bottom cover plate from the vacuum by prying it off gently with a screwdriver blade. Set aside the cover plate.
If the old belt is broke, remove it by pulling the belt from underneath the roller bush. If the belt is not broken but simply worn out, and is still attached, cut it off with scissors.
Remove the roller brush by lifting both ends from the grooved slots in the housing of the vacuum cleaner.
Cut away hair, thread, string and other debris wound around the roller, using the scissors. Tangles on the roller brush are a common reason for belt wear and breakdowns due to the added weight and stress on the roller brush.
Slip the replacement belt over the roller brush and seat the belt in the groove in the center of the roller.
Slide the roller brush back into the grooved mounts on either side of the housing and snap into place.
Pull back on the new belt and slip the loop over the pulley attached to the vacuum motor.
Replace the bottom cover by snapping it back on the housing until it clicks into place.

bearings in the brushroll might be siezing. If you start snapping belts, change the brushroll. the roller brush that most likely needs to be cleaned,clean the hair from the brush and under the belt and make sure the bar is positioned in the vacuum properly and turns easily. Your problem could be the clutch unit what has probably happened is either the clutch plates are warn, or the 3 balls in the clutch have warn a large grove in there fixing plate or the plastic hub that the brush roller to clutch belts runs on has melted this hub melting is the most common of all clutch faults.
There are no spares available for repairing the clutch other than the motor to clutch belt & the clutch to brush belt. Here is a diagram to help you
