I've bought a drive belt for a Hotpoint 9342W Dryer but I can't work out how to fit it can you help


http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Belt-Diagrams?red=Dryer-Repair-Help#DiagramL
here is a diagram on how the belt is fitted.
Move the idler arm forward to allow room for the belt and thread the new belt around the idler arm pulley and over the motor pulley. When you have it in place, slowly release the idler arm pulley to place the tension back on the belt.
After this, turn the drum around slowly by hand to make sure that the belt is in the right place, and is situated to the right side all of the way around (no twists in the belt). If the belt falls off during this, you'll need to try again. If not, you're good to go.
I hope this was helpful. I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further assistance. Good for you for fixing it by yourself.

As I was cleaning my crosley dryer modle cde600w I let the drive belt idler arm relax and the spring came off.Now how do you put it back in place?Can you HELP!!! Thank you.


Hello,

The idler arm attaches to the base, and the spring attaches to the arm, and then the frame. You'll pull the arm past the belt, and then relax your tension, and transferring the tension to the belt.

    Move the idler arm forward to allow room for the belt and thread the end of the new belt around the idler arm pulley and over the motor pulley, letting the idler arm move back to apply tension to the new belt.

    make sure the belt is around the motor pulley and the idler tension arm.it goes on like a serpintine belt on a car.pull the pulley to one side and then put the belt on the motor pulley and then release the idler pulley it should tighten up your belt.the outside of the belt should run along the inside of the idler pulley.it will almost look like a figure S.

    change the drive belt. evidently the belt has stretched to the point the belt tensioning device can no longer do its job. when you change the belt make a diagram of which way the belt is reaved through the tensioning device. if you don't you'll be back here asking how to arrange the belt.

    I need to replace the drum bearing on my GE DDE5300 dryer


    The idler pulley controls the tension on the belt. Simply grasp the idler pulley located by the motor and pull in the direction of least restraint, then slip the belt off the idler pulley.
    Make sure the power is disconnected to the dryer. Below is a link that will assist you with exploded diagrams and parts information.
