To replace the drum belt on a miele dryer you can follow this procedure--

1. Remove the front panel.
2. Slide a putty knife between the front panel and the top near a corner. Lift the corner and repeat on the other side.
3. To remove the lower panel, insert the putty knife between the panel and each side. Then twist to release clip.
4. Reach underneath drum and behind motor to locate idler pulley. Push idler pulley to left to release drum belt tension. Remove the belt from the motor pulley.

5. Loosen the screws that secure the bottom of the front panel to the dryer sides. Do not completely remove the screws.
6. Remove the drum and belt from the cabinet.

Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

It's not hot enough-

Check that the exhaust vent/duct is clean and clear. If the exhaust airflow is restrict, it will effect the temperature of your dryer. Also, many dryers today have the lint filter. Make sure the filter is clean.

Im trying to replace the drum belt on a Miele t7734 tumble dryer, but cant seem to get around the front or back of the drum to get the belt around it. Am I supposed to dismantle the whole machine to do...

Some dryers disassemble from the front, making it possible to slip the replacement belt over the drum and connect it to the tension idler and the motor pulley.

Dryer belt t9800 keeps breaking

worn felt seal on the front of the drum. felt has worn away exposing the rubber, when the dryer gets warm the rubber gets sticky. this causes loud vibrations and friction. the drum wont turn so the belt breaks. i would not trust this job to any one but a miele tech, as it is very complicated and someone that does not know how to work on this dryer can cause more harm than good.

Help - Miele Dryer Model T9800 problem!

The belt is most likely broken. The front drum bearing seal may have worn out and caused this to happen. Call Miele. You'll be better off.

The drum is not spinning on a miele dryer, model T5206, the appliance is generating heat, the brushes are intact and also the belt on the centre of the drum is intact.

the tensioning device [ spring] is weak or the belt is stretched beyond its usable length. if a new belt has been installed, the tech didn't put the belt on the correct side of the tensioning device. it is possible to install it wrong.
