Some large hardware stores like Home Depot stock them. Most appliance parts stores sell to the general public. Marcone appliance parts in St. Louis will sell mail order. Have the model and serial Number available. I always replace belt , idler pulley and back support wheels together. They usually go bad about the same time. I'll bet that the dryer is pretty loud isn't it. The support rollers usually cause the belt to break or a stiff pully. Total parts cost is under 50 dollars

I have an eziloader 6kg dryer, the drum does not spin but the heater element turns on. How do I check if the belt has come off?


can you turn the drum reasonably easy whilst the machine is empty and off . If you can than the drum has no load and the belt is either broken or has come off the drive pulley or the drum . Disconect power cord from socket and remove back off machine ..You know should be able to access drive belt and either replace belt onto drum and drive motor or purchase and fit new belt . It is a good idea to replace a belt that has slipped off and is not broken - belts stretch and its likely to come off again . If this is one with a sealed back then turn it on side and remove base to reach belt .

Dryer heats but drum does not tumble


more than likely your tension on the belt, or the belt itself has slipped or broken,, Open the cabinet, Look at the bottom, you will see a tensioner, your belt will slide past this devise,, if its just hanging free, your belt has either come off the drum, or broken,, replace as needed, be sure and check that the drum is not bound up on something prior to starting,, a simple twist of the drum will move it if it's turning freely

The dryer is plugged in and blows really hot but the drum does not turn- any idea where to start


The dryer has a belt that goes around the drum and is driven by a motor in the bottom of the mach. Open the back or lay it down on a bucket on the front and look for the belt to be off or broken.

Drum wont spin cant find belt inside machine


The belt is normally around the drum,motor, and idler arm pulley.
If you remove the front of the machine it will normally expose the drum and you will see the belt around the drum...if the belt is not around the drum then it could indicate that you have a broken belt.

Drum does not turn


Hello,
Here are a few things to check. If you don't feel comfortable performing these check, please have a repair person come in and check it.

* Broken belt. Open dryer and see if belt is still wrapped around the drum. Pull on the belt to make sure it's not just hanging there. Inspect belt condition. Do not apply spray adhesive in this case: replace the belt. If belt is broken, look for contributing causes for failure such as worn drum rollers, damaged felt kit, or stiff idler roller.

* Motor burned out. Remove belt from motor pulley and start dryer. If motor runs but is noisy and motor is unable to turn the drum when the drum belt is threaded back on the motor pulley, then replace the motor.

* Thermal fuse is open. Run continuity test.

Hope this helps.

Drum will not turn


YOUR BELT ON YOUR DRYER IS BROKEN. THAT IS WHY YOUR DRUM WON'T SPIN. YOU CAN BUY A NEW BELT FOR YOUR DRYER AT ANY PLACE THAT SELLS APPLIANCES.

The dryer will get hot but the drum will not go around


More than likely, the belt is broken. Otherwise, the drum motor is shot. (That's not very likely though).
