Take the front panel(s) off and it will allow you to take the top off. The belt runs from a little pulley at the bottom of the dryer around the top of the drum.

Wont start makes humming noise


sounds like the humming may be the motor running. check to see if your drive belt is broken. a fairly easy and inexpensive fix. take top of dryer and see if belt is around drum. if broken it will not be there. if it is there, turn drum by hand and see if you get resistence or pull on belt and see if there is slack. belt may be off of drive pulley.

Start switch hums but will not start dryer


The most common cause of the problem you describe is a broken drive belt. This doesn't mean it is the only possibility, nor that it is the issue you are seeing, but based on your short description, this could be the drive belt. If you are mechanically inclined, you can replace it yourself, but if not, then contact your local appliance repair company to diagnose and replace whatever part needs it. If you open the back panel and see that the drive belt is broken, then this could be an easy fix. Here is a link to the drive belt that fits your dryer: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Speed-queen-Parts/Dryer-Parts/511255P/0026/250/Model-AES28AWF/1271/0151200?keySuffixId=&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=1101142P&diagramPageId=00009&productTypeId=&searchModelNumber=AES28AWF&subCompDesc=Motor/exhaust%20fan/belt&brandDesc=SPEED%20QUEEN&modelDesc=DRYERS&blt=11&shdMod=&keyId=7

How do I fix belt on my hotpoint TVM570p dryer


To do the belt. + as long as your patience lasts...
1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. check you've unplugged.
3. Open the top of the machine - see the sides of the lid about 10 cm from front, remove plastic cap on each torx head, undo torx. (torx set required)
4. Remove concrete block from top - large spanner is required - remember the sequence so you can replace later.
5. Lean over the drum and see the large drive wheel. To pop the belt off, turn the wheel forcing the belt to the edge of the wheel. It will eventually come off.
6. to replace belt - see motor shaft at bottom of unit. Dangle belt round shaft of motor and gently pull so it does not come off.(This is not easy!)
7. At the same time Ease one side of the new belt back on to drive wheel on the back of the drum.
8. Turn Drive wheel until belt is on.(This is not easy and requires alot of hand strength)
9. Replace concrete block with bolt and spanner in reverse sequence you removed it.
10. replace lid, torx and cover for torx.

Dryer screeching and grinding when running


Hi !
The drive belt has become old and hard.
Just change the drive belt and all will be well.

Please don't try to lubricate the belt as may be suggested by many as cheap quick fix.

Regards
Berry.

Dryer drum struggles to turn


hello. i can assist you. there are two possible problems here. If the belt is old and stretched it will cause the issue that you have. The fix is to replace the belt. I would do this first.

The second possible, albeit rarer cause is the motor itself. Once again the only fix is to replace it. begin with replacing the belt. that would be much cheaper. good luck with it.

Need to install drive belt- lady kenmore dryer..loop designation


The belt probably broke first, which caused the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal. With no tension on the pulley it will commonly fall over. To re-install, follow these steps:

1. Loop the new 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).

2. 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.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and 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. If this is a Kenmore dryer, it will be manufactured by Whirlpool. Refer to diagram H. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
