It sounds like you have a bad or broken belt tensioner. It is located in the bottom of the unit close to the motor . It is a spring loaded pully assembly which keeps the belt taught. The belt simply goes around the drum and the motor shaft and the belt tensioner pully.

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.

Electrolux mex731cfs4 change dryer belt


Unplug unit from the wall.

Slide the unit forward until back and side are accessible if necessary disconnect dryer duct and washer water lines).

Remove the vented plate on the back to access the motor and idler arm using a LARGE Phillips-head screwdriver.

remove broken belt.

Remove 10 of the 11 screws holding the top on (leave the center front one; undo the front corners last, taking care not to let the front panel slip forward - it supports the drum).

Open the dryer door and gently pull the front plate forward, supporting the drum from the inside with one hand so it doesn't fall

Work the belt around the drum and between the front of the drum and the front panel. Held it mostly taut around the drum to slide it back to the existing belt mark. Grooved rubber side of the belt goes on the inside.

Push the front panel back into position while seating the drum on it. Temporarily attached the top with two back and two front screws. (The front panel overlaps the top; the top goes over everything else.)

Route the drive belt left-to-right over the idler arm pulley, pushed the idler arm to the left, route the belt around the motor shaft and then up over the drum.

The idler arm should (a) press on the OUTSIDE of the belt, (b) take up all the slack in the belt, and (c) not touch the motor shaft (touching it is what causes the awful noise). The belt should contact the motor shaft past the two nut-like things on the shaft (not between them).
reverse the removal process making sure all is connected again and all screws are in place power unit to test

The belt has come off my dryer and I'm tryint to put it back on, how do I get a digram of what it looks like when the belt correctly back in place?


It is something that you can repair yourself
You probably have a tensioner that has broken.
I am sorry but I do not have the Samsung routing available to me.
Below is a chart of the most common routing of dryer belts.
The part that has failed on your unit is probably the idler pulley/brackett.
You should be able to repair it without having to remove the drum
