Double the belt and slide it between the two arms of the tension pulley. Then slip the belt over the drive motor pulley. The belt will be pushing against the tension pulley from underneath.

Whirlpool dryer awz 121 only tumbles counter clockwise. This is a dryer that briefly reverses direction, so the only tumbling is when it reverses. The rest of the time, the dryer makes a noise but d


You may want to contact a professional that will have the diagrams for your machine online. there are some here or you can go to another site. like (Just answer.) Be more specific about your problem. It can be fixed . There's no worries.

Are you saying that it does not heat up either ?In addition with not tumbling clockwise ?

Disconnect the dryer first. You can remove the top and front of the dryer to check to see what is happening. If it does not heat . You may need to replace the temperature control relay. If that does not work , the heating elements themselves may need to be replaced.

For the tumbling problem, they also have relay switches that go out.
BUT, if it is tumbling to one side and keeps tumbling then that will probably be enough to dry your clothes. As long as it is not too heavily loaded.

Whirlpool Clothes Dryer AWZ 121


It sounds like it is the belt. When the dryer heats up the belt expands a little and when it gets wore out, the tensioner doesn't have enough spring to keep it tight. It might work a little when it's cold before the belt expands.
This belt should work for your dryer but verify the length.

Here is a helpful Youtube video on how to do the repair.

Here is a link to the Service Manual

The bottom of this link shows some typical ways a belt runs past a tension wheel and links for your dryer. If you replace yours I would recommend taking a couple pictures before removing the old one so you can refer to them when installing the new one.

Whirlpool AWZ 410 washer dryer is not generating any hot air when drying. The dryer drum is tumbling but with cool air only.


Unplug the unit and take the top with the screws holding the lid on. Take a look at all of the wires on the top of the machine. You might notice broken/burnt wires on the safeties that are close to or that directly activate the heating element located in the blower housing located at the top of this washer/dryer condensing unit.

I have the model AWZ 7813 and the belt broke. I took the unit apart but need a new belt and the manual to show me how the belt goes on.


If you have seen belts in cars, there is something to remove the slack (spring loaded). Its similar to dryers,, the dryer belt goes around the drum and the motor (obviously). from there, there is a wheel that connects to the base. It is spring loaded and takes the slack off the belt. If YOU took it apart (recently), hold the wheel/spring assembly in your hands as it would be positioned if it were screwed into the chassis. Move the wheel to get an idea what direction the spring pulls.

I hope this helped a little.

Dryer not tumbling


A broken belt is very common. If you hear the motor running, that's probably it. The dryer must be taken all apart to replace the belt. Hopefully instructions will come with the new belt. Routing the belt over the motor shaft and around the tensioner is always a challenge.
