Where should i look for the belt location inside the drier? the drier has heat, its making nois as a motor is ok but do not rotate anymore


If you need to find parts or manuals for the dryer, go to Google website and type in you model number and then type in what you need manuals or parts. More then likely your belt came off the idler pulley.

To replace the belt on GE Dryer DISR473DG1WW, we will need to open the back of the cabinet, right? Is there a repair manual showing the process? Does this dryer ship with a spare belt inside?


Hello, W/D here.
I'm not aware of any dryers shipping with a spare belt on board, but this may vary by region.
You are correct in that the back is removed to gain access to the belt. Disconnect the power first. If there isn't a spare in the cabinet (probably not), take the old belt with you to your local appliance parts supply house and get a replacement, or it may be ordered on-line. The belt number will be on the belt.
Here's a good website showing how your model is assembled. This site also has parts descriptions and prices; useful for comparison shopping. There is also usually a button-link to a free downloadable manual. Here 'tis: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/GE-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-DISR473DG1WW/0432/0151200?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=DISR473DG1WW
Another good site to check for parts is: http//www.appliancepartspros.com.
Armed with these items, replacing the belt will be child's play for you!
Best regards, (and please rate this solution), --W/D--

Dryer has electricity but the drum will not spin


Hello there:
If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time. Click here for a belt installation diagram Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor: Remove the belt. Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing. Manually rotate the shaft of the motor. If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor. If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again. If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor. Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Help Changing Belt on Maytag PYET444AYW dryer


Normally if it is a front loading machine then you need to take the front of the dryer off.
This will expose the drum, roller, etc.
Remove the drum, install new belt on the motor pulley, loop around the idle arm roller, then install on the drum and reinstall the drum, reinstall the front and job complete

GOT A SQUEAK AND NEED TO REPLACE DOOR GASKET NEED TO LOOK AT BOOK ROPER DRYER MOD.REX4634JQO


The Roper is manufactured by Whirlpool. Your REX4634JQO should be identical to the Whirlpool LER 4634 J. Go to Roper's website at www.roperappliances.com/support to see about getting a manual. If you want to get at the problem without waiting for a manual, take a putty knife and slide it under the top of the dryer at the two retaining clips to pop it open and tilt the top back exposing the top of the drum. Then open the bottom panel and take the belt off the motor pulley. You should then be able to lift the drum out of the enclosure. Clean off the ball and socket at the back of the drum and apply fresh grease. Clean the lint off the idle rollers at the front of the enclosure and make sure they turn freely. Clean the surface where the belt rides and clean off the belt, then reassemble. If the belt is glazed, frayed, cracked, or shows any other wear or damage, do yourself a big favor and replace it now. I think the last one I bought was about $12 and will save you the trouble of doing all this again when the belt does finally fail.

Motor If the dryer motor only hums when you press the Start button, the motor may be burned out. Here's how to test the dryer motor:

  • Remove the belt.

  • Check for obstructions in the blower fan housing.

  • Manually rotate the shaft of the motor.

If the motor is very stiff, or impossible to rotate manually, and the blower fan housing is clear, you need to replace the motor.

If the motor rotates freely, run the motor momentarily with the belt removed and the blower in place. If the motor runs fine with the belt removed, there may be a problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum. Try to rotate the drum by hand. If it is very difficult to move, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley, and then reassemble the dryer and try it again.

If the motor hums but doesn't rotate on its own even with the belt removed--yet you can turn it freely by hand--you usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.

Door switch Your dryer can't operate at all if the door switch is defective. It's inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
