This site has a good illustrated procedure to follow for changing your belt. (The site says Whirlpool, but it's the same for Kenmore.) It's not a tough job if you're patient and comfortable with simple tools (like a screwdriver). The same site sells the parts, and you can usually find the belt locally at a well-stocked appliance parts store.

Good luck with the repair, and thanks for using Fixya!

SOURCE: Changing the belt on Frigidaire GLER642

ok here we go facing the drier take a putty knife come about 1-2 inches from the edge and push in should feel a spring clip depress in lift one side then the other look inside on the front panel and remove the two 5/16 inch screws grasp the front and snap it off give it a good tug then your ready to go be sure to un plug the drier and slide it out from the wall so you can tilt the top back before removing the front don't forget my 4 boxes and make sure the idler pulley is on the belt the the belt goes around the drum around the motor pulley then you pull the idler pulley back and put the belt on top of the idler pulley let it back against the belt to keep the belt tight you do not have to remove the drum for this can all be done from the front

SOURCE: belt broke cant find where to take apart to replace belt

Most dryers can be taken apart on the back. Take out the screws holding the rear plate on and you should see the motor and pulleys. It's always good to keep the back oof of the unit until you test it once. The belt could be getting broken or just slipping off due to overloading the unit. Over time, this can severly damage the rollers and put too much tension on the motor assembly. Hope this helps.

Need model number or part number for whilpool dryer


The model number for your dryer is usually located on a plate or sticker inside the door on the body of the dryer hidden by the closed door.

The most common (but not the only) belt number for Whirlpool dryers is 341241 and the idler arm for that common dryer has tabs that fit into the floor beneath the motor drive pulley. Take a loop of the belt with ribs inside the loop and pass it through the opening below the roller and loop it around the motor pulley. If it's the most common unit the end result should look like the image below for Whirlpool:

Kenmore dryer


The belt you will need for that unit is part # 341241. These belts will fit almost all Whirlpool and Kenmore models except for the DOTT (Dryer Of Tomorrow, Today) dryers. A DOTT dryer is a Kenmore model only, and has a front kick plate and the lint filter in the door.
