    dryer made a noise then stopped tumbling. I am assuming the belt broke but the instruction booklet doesn't tell you how to get to it or change it.

Remove the lint filter on top. remove the two screws. Use a butter knife or thin screw driver to pry up the front near the corners. Push in the clips when you pry. prop the top up and remove the wires to the door switch. If the front has 2 pieces open the bottom panel from the top and loosen but don't remove the two screws . From the top inside remove the two screws and lift the front off. If the front is one piece there will be clips holding the bottom just lift up.

Dyer will not turn on. Can hole the starter button in and dryer will run. remove and the dryer will stop running. When holding the start button the dryer does not heat. Any Idea's as to what may be...


broken belt or broken broken belt switch most likely. Open the door. Hold in the door switch and push the start button. Does the drum turn? If it does turn then the broken belt micro switch is where I would look first. If the drum don't turn of course I would replace the broken belt.
The only Kenmore dryer that has a broken belt switch is the 4 wheel drive model. Here is a video which shows how to get into this dryer and replace the belt:

My kenmore electric dryer turns on and heats but the drum doesn't turn?


that would be a broken belt, or the motor, I say belt. You will need to open the top of the dryer and look in the middle of the drum for a belt, which is not there I am sure, here are some websites,Tim:

How to change motor belt


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley or a faulty motor.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the screws that hold the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

Recently, my dryer stopped spinning. The heat still works but the drum will not spin at all. Help me please :(


If you are brave enough to try undoing some nuts to open the dryer up you will probably find that the belt that wraps around the drum is broken or has slipped off of the drum. I bought a new one and did the repair myself.

Kenmore dryer will not work


the motor will make a sound if working so if heard check for a broken belt that surrounds the drum inside

Drum will not turn but belt is not broken


The first thing to try is opening the door and turning the drum by hand to see if it turns freely, you may have something lodged in the front or back seal areas wedging drum. This is unlikely but easy to do without taking apart dryer.

Some have a glide tightener instead of a roller assembly tightener which are two styles of belt tighteners used. Glide type should be replaced by the roller type and a new belt.(glide type tends to cause belt stretching)

These are things to look for assuming motor is running and belt did not just jump off, which is rare, need to disassemble by lifting top and removing front to work on, with unplugged. There are sharp edges on inside of dryer, so watch out for sheet metal edges.

Trying to install a dryer belt on a kenmore dryer model 62622101. don't see how ya thread the belt thru the existing bracket


the belt goes through a tensioner which fastenes to the floor in a set of slots. Get the belt through that tensioner then around the motor pulley. Put the drum on the wheels in the back, lift the front (you need a helper) and put the front back on and fasten, replace the top.

Much easier to say it than to do it ... but you got this far, I have faith you can finish the job.

Dryer belt broke on my kenmore series 80


With the front cabinet panel off, place the drum against the back and on the rear rollers. The roller on the right will sometimes move toward the rear so reach from underneath and pull it forward. The rollers should sit in the groove. The drum will tilt forward but shouldn't fall off. Route the belt around drum, pulley and motor. Tilt the drum back and support it while placing the front panel back onto it's hooks. With the front panel on (don't screw it on yet), rotate the drum by hand to make sure the seal is not kinked and the belt won't slide off the pulley or motor. If all is well screw in the front panel and re-assemble the rest.

The drum of my Kenmore 80 series electric dryer is not turning


sounds like you need a new drum belt. start by taking the top off then the front panel will have screws inside for removing the front. then once the front is off you will see the motor and where the belt should be. if the belt is broken, replace it, if not just put it back on the motor and idler pulley.

It is very much easier to replace the belt from the front, than the back, the cabinet disassembles from the front, and the mechanism remians attached to the rear plate and cabinet floor.
  • pull lint filter out
  • remove 2 screws from under lint filter
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, release clips at front corners of cabinet top
  • tilt up cabinet top
  • remove 1screw 1/3 way down each side of front of cabinet.
  • lift off cabinet front
  • drum, motor, tensioner, are all exposed

  • lift drum out forward
  • check rollers, drum felts, nylon glide bearings for wear
    (worn bearing surfaces are the most common cause of belt breakage and you dont want to do it again next month)
  • reinstall tensioner in slots in cabinet floor, reinstall tensioner spring between tensioner and cabinet floor
    (Once the cabinet is open the tensioner mounts are easily visible)
  • loop belt around drum at the wear marks of the prior belt
  • reinstall drum on unworn bearing rollers etc
  • loop belt around motor pulley
  • pull tensioner hard against spring to end of travel
  • loop belt around tensioner
  • relax tensioner
  • spin drum by hand to ensure belt isnt going to jump off
reinstall cabinet in reverse order
~15 MINUTES, but I do 3-4 per day
