SOURCE: UNABLE TO GET AT WHIRLPOOL DRYER BELT SO I CAN

You will have to take the back off and pop the top up. To pop the top, insert a stiff putty knife into the joint where thr top meets the front, about 2 inches in from the sides. Push inward to release the catches.

SOURCE: How to install a belt on a Whirlpool dryer model LEW0050PQ?

The tech I paid to replace the belt opened the case from the top and the back, and pulled the drum back away from the front, keeping the drum attached to the back panel. This exposed the motor and the broken belt, which had been cut by the motor drive wheel, probably because the drum was too heavy. Don't you just love renters?

SOURCE: Burning Smell from Belt on Whirlpool Dryer

Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: changing dryer belt

The drive belt goes around the drum near the rear. It does not use a special groove; it just runs on the surface of the drum. You will need to remove the drum to gain access to the broken belt, motor, and idler/tensioner pulley. It will make more sense when you remove the drum and view the motor pulley and belt tensioner. With a helper, install the new belt around the motor pulley and under the tensioner, then fit it around the drum little by little as you reinstall the drum. Make sure the drum is positioned properly on its rear support wheels, then manually support the front end and rotate the drum slowly by hand. It should rotate freely and the belt should start to track straight as it realigns itself on the drum. If it tracks well, reinstall the front panel, door, top, etc., and check operation.

The belt is broken and we need a replacement for it.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Go to any of these sites and enter your model number:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com

http://www.appliancepartspros.com

http://www.repairclinic.com

If you have difficulty locating your belt I need your complete model number and will use those same sites to find your belt for you. There are 2 different sized belts for a whirlpool dryer depending upon the model number. 27 inch dryer and 29 inch dryer.

Download this manual to help you change the belt:
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/4829abde74a34d7f85256ab000620794/$FILE/4322260.pdf

The order of removal is the toe panel, top and then the front panel to gain access to change the belt.
Toe panel (page 15 / pdf file page 20)
Top panel (page 14 / pdf flie page 19)
Front panel (page 19 / pdf file page 24)

Make sure you inspect the drum seals (felts) and the the drum rollers in the process of changing the belt.

The manual link I passed is for the 27 inch dryer but access is exactly the same for the larger dryer.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
