Based on your model number, pick up the correct belt, order online if needed. always first unplug the dryer, remembering once you open the dryer there are sharp edges!
then on the top pull the lint filter out. under the lint filter are two to three screws take them out
now the top will snap off the clips in the front, you may need a putty knife to release them. flip the top up from the front to the back.
on the inside are two screws one on each side the hold the front panel on the top, clips hold the bottom on, set the front panel to the side. if the belt is still in one piece and not broken look at how it rides around the idler wheel to the motor. remove the dryer cylinder and vaccuum out as needed. replace belt.
rebuild dryer in reverse. and let me know if you have questions.

The inside drum quit turning. is there a belt that turns this and if so how do I get to it. I had the top open but could not see anything. The drum spins if I manually spin it so I know it is not bound up...


if you cant see a belt about 1/4" wide around the drum, there will be a mark where the belt was on the drum before it broke,remove front panel and restring belt around the drum,then replace front drum piece that holds the drum in place and then string belt around idler and motor pulleys and replace front cover

How to replace a belt on this style dryer, is there a trick


REMOVE THE SOCKET FROM THE WALL OUTLET.
To replace a belt that passes over the drum on a dryer you need to be able
to pass the new belt over either the back or the front of the drum. This
entails removing the front panel to clear the whole drum or loosening off
the rear bearing support to pass the belt under it so that the belt can be
passed over the drum. From there it is just a case of passing the belt
over the motor pulley and replacing all the parts. Select which will be
easier on your machine. After replacing everything but the top panel,
make sure that the belt is correctly installed by turning the drum several
revolutions by hand and ensuring that the belt is running true and still
on the motor pulley. Tension the belt by either adjusting the motor or the
tensioner, if the machines has one of those. Replace the top cover and
you are set to go.

Past few days, dryer got very noisy. Then drum


The noise is coming from a moving part. There are only a few that normally cause a problem. Also the dryer drum not turning freely is what broke your belt. Here is what I would replace. Drum rollers, Drum slides and idler pulley. You can check these parts before you replace them. If the drum rollers don't spin real easy, replace. If the idler pulley does not turn easy, replace. If the drum slides are worn, replace. Your model may be one with a front drum bearing. If it looks worn, replace.
You may be able to take dryer apart, try turning drum. Listen for the noise and notice if the drum is hard to turn. If so, you may be able to determine if the problem is in the front or back of drum. Keep on mind that the noise might have been the belt slipping due to the drum being hard to turn. Either way, when you have it repaired, it should run with the noise. Good luck.

We are trying to replace the belt to our front loader dryer DLE5977W and are not sure how to take the dryer apart. Do we start from the front or the back.What steps do we need to replace the belt. Thank...


If it is a front loading machine:
You would remove the front of the machine, that will expose the drum and belt, remove the drum and belt and that will expose the drum rollers,motor, idler arm pulley.
Before you replace the drum and belt assembly, Check you drum rollers for flat spots, If they have flat spots on them replace them. I would also recommend that you lubricate your drum rollers with a good quality of machine oil such as 3 in One Oil. This will save you later on another disassembly because of noisy drum rollers.Apply the oil at the shaft of the drum rollers.
I hope this helps

Asko T720 clothes dryer - thumping noise like the drum is damaged and shakes when going.


hi
The drum of the dryer is usually turned by a motor-and-belt assembly. There are two very clear signs that the belt is malfunctioning: You can easily spin the drum by hand when the dryer is off, or you hear a heavy thumping sound coming from the drum when the dryer is running. Here's how to test and replace the drum belt:

Step 1: Locate the belt by removing the back or front service panel. Depending on the type of dryer you own, you may have to prop up the drum to keep it from sagging. Don't let the drum hang; the bolts that hold it in the cabinet could be damaged. Don't remove any more parts than necessary.

Step 2: Identify the belt. The old belt may be threaded around the idler pulley and motor drive shaft. Draw a diagram showing how the pulley is installed so you'll be able to replace it properly. If the old belt is worn or frayed, but not broken, leave it around the drum as a pattern for positioning the new belt; cut the old belt and remove it when the new belt is in position.

Step 3: Remove the old belt from the pulleys and stretch the replacement belt into place. The new belt must extend around the dryer drum and the pulleys. The trick is to align the belt on the drum with the pulleys -- the ribs on the new belt go against the drum.

Step 4: Once the belt is aligned, turn the drum by hand, if possible, to make sure the belt is tracking. You may have to reassemble part of the cabinet to do this.
