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

REPLACING THE DRUM BELT


Belt should go around entire drum then around motor pulley (which is metal) and tensioner/safety pulley (which is the white pulley)

Dryers starts but shuts dow after 3 minutes


Instructions
    • 1 Unplug the dryer. Remove the top panel of the body using your screwdriver to unscrew the upward-facing screws in the door opening. Remove the front section (with the door in it) by loosening the screws that are facing forward, which you can access after the top is off to give you unfettered access to the big metal drum inside.
    • 2 Trace the path of the rubber belt encompassing the drum, following it down to the point where it runs through the motor that turns the drum. Lift the belt off the drum surface at that point as it runs through the pulleys to the motor. Put a chalk mark on the drum next to the belt, right where the belt lifts off the drum.
    • 3 Hold your belt dressing can with the nozzle pointing at the underside of the belt where it's exposed with the lifting of the belt from the drum. With your free hand, turn the drum slowly while spraying the underside of the belt with belt dressing.
    • 4 Continue turning the drum, slowly, while spraying the belt dressing onto the back of the belt. Look for the chalk mark that you made to come back around in front of you, indicating that you've rotated the drum one full circle.
    • 5 Reassemble the dryer, putting on the panels and tightening the screws in reverse order from how you took it apart. Plug it in, turn it on and test it for the noise.

I have a kenmore 27 inch electric dryer that when you push the start button it sounds like it starts but the drum doesn't turn. What could this be?


A clear indication that your dryer belt is broken is when the dryer drive motor runs but the drum does not rotate. A new belt is relatively inexpensive from several online or a local parts vendor, but installing it can be a bit frustrating since the dryer drum usually needs to be remove to install a replacement belt. Access to the interior of the dryer is usually necessary. For Maytag (and some Kenmore) models, the front of the dryer can be easily removed (two screws below front contour) by pulling out on the bottom of the panel and rotating up to release the top clips. Once off, place to the side, then remove four machine screws from the front drum/lint filter assembly, then remove by pullling out. Once off, place aside. Remove drum by lifting up and pulling out on drum (since the belt is broken it will not provide any resistance). Once removed, inspect the motor pulley arrangement noting the belt routing path around the motor pulley, belt tensioner, and the drum. Inspect the drum for belt wear marks, noting approximate location on drum where belt rides. Install replacement belt by routing through pulley arrangement (ridged side of belt rides againt motor pulley), then "hang" the belt on the interior backside to enable reaching the belt after reinstalling the drum. After placing the drum edge on the rear rollers, lift the front of the drum up into position, working the belt around the drum into the drum groove. Once the belt is in the groove, the drum should stay in position without lifting from the front. Check for proper pulley routing, taking care to avoid routing the belt OVER the tensioner belt keeper, i.e., route the the belt under the belt keeper to avoid belt riding on the keeper and failing prematurely. Install the front/lint filter assembly. As you manually rotate the drum, reach along the top and side of the drum and gently pull the belt out of the groove and into its normal ride position. Install the front panel, plug the unit in, start and check for proper rotation of the drum.

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.

The belt has come off the dryer drum. I dont know how the tensioner goes back on


stick the belt pulley in the holes closest to the motor. if you have a belt pulley like this. get the belt and hold it together so you have a loop at the end and run under the pulley so the pulley lifts up and put the belt on the motor shaft. the belt always goes under the pulley so you are lifting upwards

Belt broke on GE Dryer model #DDE7500BALWH


You will need a WE12X82P belt, or just a WE12x82 (the P stands for packaged)
  • Disconnect power
  • Remove screws under the front edge of the dryer top
  • Swing top up and remove one screw from each side panel holding the dryer front, near the top of the dryer.
  • Pull dryer front forward a bit and lift off bottom pegs. Swing to the side. (no need to disconnect wires if you don't want to)
  • Put belt around drum, lifting drum a bit to get belt past drum support slides on the bottom side.
  • Check to make sure drum slides are not worn through, especially the one on the left side.
  • The grooved side of the belt touches the drum
  • Belt runs from drum directly to motor pulley on the left side, then around belt tensioning wheel and back to the drum.
  • Turn the drum a revolution or two (counter clockwise) before reassembly.

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.

My hotpoint vtd20 dryer is vibrating when running. When stopped, with my hand i can barely turn the drum (not sure if it turned easily before) any advice?

Some older dryers have a V-belt pulley drum drive. With this system, two or three pulleys of different sizes set the speed of the drum. To change this type of belt, decrease the tension on the idler pulley and install the new belt in the V-grooves of all pulleys. Then place the idler pulley back into position.
With any dryer, make absolutely sure that you replace the old belt with a new one made especially for the dryer. Any difference in belts can change the speed of the drum and cause problems with other dryer components.
