Sorry I have been off line on medical leave.

The Whirlpool belt is very simple. Always make sure you have the dryer unplugged or the power turn off at the breaker box!
While you have the dryer apart I recommend that you vacuum out the collected lint and do some preventative maintenance. I would put a couple drips of a lite oil on the roller shafts of the back rollers.

Now the groves of the belt face down against the cylinder, you will see on the cylinder spot is worn where the belt rides. then with the extra belt loop it thru the idler wheel and on to the motor pulley. This is the hardest part.
Once the belt is on a good test is to turn the cylinder and see that the belt is in place. Reassemble dryer.

Again sorry Im finally doing stairs againt. Let me know if you have any questions.

Can you show me the correct diagram for the drive belt on a 44in Dixon zero turn mower


Hope this helps. Serpentine Blade Drive Belt
1 Lower the mower deck to its lowest position.
2 Route the serpentine blade drive belt (part number 6109) onto the V-pulleys located on the mower deck. One double pulley is located at the front of the deck near the center. The other two pulleys are located near each side of the deck. Route the belt around the outside -- the side toward the outer edge of the mower deck -- of each pulley. For the double pulley near the front of the deck, route the belt around the lower pulley (part number 6058) only. If pulleys are fitted with belt guards, work the belt in between the pulley and shield.
3 Push the idler pulley toward the center of the deck with your hand. The idler pulley (part number 6059) is the fourth pulley on the deck and is located near the rear of the deck. It is the only movable pulley on the deck. Wrap the belt around the side of the pulley nearest the edge of the deck. Release the idler pulley to place tension on the belt. No adjustment is necessary because the serpentine idler spring (part number 6065), located on the idler pulley, adjusts the belt to the correct tension.

I bought it in 2003 neptune dryer and the 3 bar inside the dryer broke and the dryer is not working right . we have to dry them 3 time before they are all dry


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Phillips-head screwdriver
* Replacement belt

1. Disconnect the power cord of the Maytag Neptune dryer from the dryer electrical outlet.
2. Open the dryer door, and locate the four screws on the inside lip of the door opening. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the four screws. This will disconnect the front panel from the shroud assembly.
3. Grab the front panel on each side with your hands. Lift up on the front panel to unhook it from the retaining tabs on the side panels. Remove the front panel, and set it out of your way.
4. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the four outside perimeter screws that secure the shroud and tumbler front to the dryer cabinet. Pull the shroud and tumbler front away from the tumbler while lifting the top panel partially up.
5. Reach both of your hands underneath each side of the tumbler. Use your left hand to grasp the idler pulley, and pull it to the left while using your right hand to slip the belt off the motor pulley. Pulling the idler pulley to the left releases tension on the belt. You can now slip the belt off the back of the tumbler.
6. Take the old belt with you along with the model number of your dryer to purchase a new belt. Most appliance repair shops will have replacement belts in stock. Make sure that the new belt matches the old one by comparing the two.
7. Slide the new belt over the rear of the tumbler with the ribbed side pointed to the inside. Using both hands under the tumbler, route the belt around the motor pulley and idler pulley. Pull the idler pulley to the left while routing the belt, and carefully allow the idler pulley back to the right to apply tension.
8. Reattach the tumbler front and shroud to the front of the cabinet using the retaining screws. Place the front panel over the side retaining tabs, and push it down to lock it in place.
9. Open the dryer door, and secure the front panel to the shroud using the retaining screws. Close the dryer door, and plug the power cord back into the dryer electrical outlet.

How do you install the belt to the belt tension wheel?


If the model number you listed this question under is correct, changing the drive belt involves the following steps (skip down to step 6 for instructions on how to route the belt on the belt tensioner and motor pulley):
???
1. UNPLUG the dryer and remove the lint screen.

2. Remove the two screws that were under the lint screen and lift the top panel.

3. Unplug the door switch connector plug and any ground wire that may be installed on the casing.

4. Locate the two screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side in the cabinet interior.

5. With the door shut, lean against the front panel and remove the two screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, grasp the front panel at the top center and lift straight up to remove.

You should now have complete access to the dryer interior. Release the belt tension, by pushing the idler pulley (tensioner) to the right (away from the belt) and remove the old belt from around the drum.

If the belt has broken, this may sometimes cause the idler pulley (tensioner) to come loose. This is normal with no tension on the pulley to hold it in place. To install a new belt and re-install the pulley, follow these steps:

6. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

7. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

8. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and push the wheel to the RIGHT while pulling the belt over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for WHIRLPOOL and refer to diagram H (This model is manufactured by Whirlpool).

Replacement parts (if required) can be ordered on line at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The part number for a replacement belt is 341241. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed also include helpful exploded view diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you may need. you can view a diagram of the belt and tensioner under the "Cabinet Parts" section.

NOTE: If you still have the Teflon glide type tensioner, Whirlpool recommends you replace it with a conventional roller type idler pulley. The Teflon type tensioners caused premature wear to the drive belt. The part number is 691366.


Once you have the belt installed, re-install the dryer front panel by holding it as you did previously. Line up the holes on the inside bottom edge of the front panel with the small mounting cleats on the front edge of the side panels. This can be done by yourself, but an assistant may make it easier. Once you have the front panel in place, lean against it to hold it in place and install the mounting screws.

NOTE: Don't forget to reconnect the grounding wire and door switch connector plug. Without the door switch connected, the dryer will not run.
Lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws.

NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them. If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.

How to install drum belt in Amana Model LED20AW. This model does not have front or back panels to remove. Fabio


Pull the front panel off, remove the top screws and tilt top back. Rout the new belt around drum at the old wear spot with the grooved side against the drum. Next remove the back access door and rout the belt around the idler pulley and motor pulley. There is only one way to do this and get proper tension on the belt.
Also, when you order the belt, ask if it has a belt routing diagram on the belt package.

Need a btlt route so i can put the new drum back in my ge profile


route the belt around the drum, pull the spring loaded idler pulley to the postion that requires you to hold it there..
put the belt : 1 through the motor pulley and around the idler pulley, or 2. around the idler pulley which ever works to keep the tensioner tight. (Idler pulley, tensioner same thing its the pulley not on the motor.
Once you put the belt on the durm, pull the idler pull so there is tension on it it should be clear how it goes.
