This might be best handled by a technician as it is not a simple task for the untrained servicer. The belt should come with written instructions on replacement procedures if you desire to attempt it. We are factory trained to replace the belt entirely from the front, by feel only, as the idler pulley can't be seen. If you have a replacement belt but no instructions and wish to pursue this yourself, maybe our experts may be able to help you in our on line chat service, who can talk you through it, live. There is fee for this service but it is much cheaper than paying for a house call.

NEED TO REPLACE THE FAN BELT ON HAIER DRYER MODELHLP140E


Remove the lint trap. There is a bolt in the center. Remove bolt. Remove screws from crossbar and you can then replace the belt. I removed sensor and lifted drum out makes it easier. Pay attention to how black belt is thread if removed

Kenmore elite front load dryer has power but won't turn on. It beeps once like OT is going to start but nothing


check to see if the belt broke,there's a switch on the belt pulley on some models,if the belt snaps from to large a load the pulley doesn't have any tension on it and the switch opens so the dryer won't run.when you put the belt back on the pulley sets the switch so power will go tough it again and the dryer will run,also check the door switch,if someone shut the door to hard and broke the switch the dryer won't run.these are the easy things to check without needing a meter.hopeit helps,if you're in mass. and need a tech you can call peter de's appliance 781-438-9442 very good techs

Maytag gas dryer mdg9306awa anits sounds like it wants to start but doesnot


that is the motor,try this,open the door,push the door switch in with one hand and spin the drum with the other hand while someone else pushes the start button,if by moving the drum the motor does start to run the motor is bad,also you have the neptune style maytag and i don't think there's a belt switch in the model so if the belt broke it could be jammed in the motor,try spinning the drum to help it start if that doesn't work unplug the dryer,open the door,remove the two screws that hold the door on and then remove the other two screws on the opposite side,grab the top of the front panel and pull forwards to remove the front panel,you can leave the door on or lift it up and pull out to remove the door,now look to see if the belt broke,if the belt is rapped around the center of the drum then it isn't broke and it will be the motor,that's a good dryer and worth changing the motor on it.

My dryer's barrel will not turn. I have replaced the pulley and belt but that did not fix the problem. The pulley's tension is not tight enough to turn the barrel. I have the correct barrel and...


Hello Mwagner, sounds like the Idler bearing pulley assembly has come loose from the belt. It's job is to keep tension on the belt so the motor is able to turn the dryer drum. By watching some videos online it seems that alot of teardown is required to get to the part you need to inspect and or replace. Here is a link for you to look at that might help you.

Changing the alternator belt


DAWN, AS I UNDERSTAND IT, YOU WANT TO DO THIS YOURSELF? GREAT! CAN DO! OK, FIRST YOU NEED TO LOOK AT THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE AND SEE WHERE THIS BELT GOES AND IF THERE ARE ANY BELTS AFTER IT,OR THAT IS ,IN FRONT OF THIS BELT. THESE WILL HAVE TO BE REMOVED BEFORE THE NEW BELT CAN GO ON. TO GET THE NEW ALTERNATOR BELT ON YOU WILL NEED TO LOOSEN THE ALTERNATOR. YOU WILL SEE AN ADJUSTMENT ARM THAT WILL NEED TO BE LOOSENED, THEN THE RETAINING BOLTS ON THE ALTERNATOR. YOU DON'T HAVE TO REMOVE THEM, JUST LOOSEN THEM SO THE ALT. WILL MOVE. ANY OTHER BELTS THAT HAVE TO BE MOVED , JUST DO THE SAME. DAWN, MOST IMPORTANT, THE INTERNET HAS REPAIR MANUALS ONLINE THAT YOU CAN SEE THIS PROCEEDURE AND DODGE WITH HAVE SHOP MANUALS ALSO YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO VIEW ONLINE AFTER ENTERING THE JOB LISTING NEEDING TO BE DONE. ALSO, AND THIS IS A BIG ONE, THE PUBLIC LIBRARY HAS SHOP MANUALS THAT YOU WILL FIND YOUR CAR AND THE BELT CHANGING JOB. YOU CAN THEN PHOTOCOPY THE PAGES YOU NEED TO DO THE JOB! GO FOR IT GIRL! YOU CAN DO IT! IF YOU DON'T HAVE ALL THE TOOLS! NO SWEAT! MOST PARTS STORES RENT TOOLS FOR THE JOB, SO YOU'RE COVERED THERE! JUST REMEMBER THAT ONCE THE BELT IS ON, YOU HAVE TO REVERSE THE ORDER AND RETIGHTEN EVERYTHING AND MAKE SURE NOTHING IS LOOSE! WHEN YOU PRESS DOWN ON THE NEW BELT IT SHOULDN'T DEFLECT MORE THAN 1/2 INCH! OK? TAKE YOUR TIME AND YOU CAN DO IT! IT WOULD HELP TO HAVE ANOTHER GIRL THERE TO HAND YOU STUFF AND FIND PARTS THAT DROP UNDER THE CAR ETC. YOU #2 IS CALLED " THE GOPHER " GO FER THIS AND GO FER THAT " JUST KIDDING, BUT IT'S A LOT LESS SCARY WITH TWO. ALSO, IF YOU LOOK FOR REPAIR MANUALS LOOK FOR " CHILTONS " OR " HAYNES " THOSE ARE THE BEST AND ARE ACTUALLY WRITTEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD, WHICH ALWAYS HELPS! IF YOU NEED MORE HELP,REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217. I CHECK MY EMAIL 5-6 TIMES A DAY. GOOD LUCK!
