Replacing dryer belt

I'm replacing the dryer belt and having trouble figuring out how to loop it around the idler and motor pulley. Most of the diagrams I see online show an actual idler wheel to loop it around and my version has more of a metal semi-circle. Any suggestions?

  • Just like this but imagine the roller as being a semicircle.
put pressure on the tensioner with the belt and loop the belt under the tensioner to the motor.
  • this is a diagram for a whirlpool/kenmore/roper/estate dryer, i don't know the brand of dryer you have.
look here is more diagrams of different brands. http://www.repairclinic.com/0079.asp

What is the belt diagram from the deck to the motor for a mower?


1st, Unplug the Dryer from the Power Supply.
You will need the Exact recommended Replacement "Idler Pulley".
With the Belt Ribs Facing Toward the Dryer Drum, position the belt on the tell tale Ring Mark on the Drum letting the Belt Hang Down below the Drum.
Place The New Idler Pulley into the Slots on the Inside Dryer Bottom located near the Motor Mounted Pulley.
(Face The Idler Pulley Toward The Motor Mounted Pulley)
(Hold the Idler Pulley in place in the slots)
Take the "Hanging Belt" & run the Whole Loop "UNDER" the Idler Pulley & then
Attach the "Belt Loop" "AROUND" The Motor Mounted Pulley.
That should do it.
Put the rest of the Dryer Back Together...Done!
Good Luck,
Vinnie

Belt does not go back on with enough tension.


Are you replacing a broken belt? If so then the belt should go flat side of belt in toward drum. Make sure the belt is not in the slight channel in drum put belt from right under guide around idler then insert loop under idler and attach loop to motor. Should end with ribbed side of belt on pulley.

Changing the belt


goes around idler pulley and motor. idler pulley fits into slots on bottom of dryer and the belt tension holds it in place. looking at it from the front and going clockwise the belt goes around the drum and then around the motor pulley and thru the idler pulley. in fact if you put the bottom loop of the belt thru the pulley from the left you then loop it around the motor pulley.

Dryer belt has come off tensioner.


The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, loop it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).
With the belt and idler pulley in place, it should look like this...

My Whirlpool dryer belt broke.


You should be able to reuse the idler pulley unless it is physically broken.
The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side and loop it around the motor pulley.

Which wa does the belt on a Maytag Atlantis dryer run around the motor and idler pulley. I have the belt groove side down, which is the way it goes in the Atlantis, but I couldn't find a schematic for the...


Hi you're correct in putting it groove side down. Now make a loop, like when you first started tying your shoes with the slack around the drum. Push the entire loop just beneath the idler pulley through the metal channel and apply pressure to the idler pulley assembly. pushing it towards the motor pulley until you can get the loop you are holding over the motor pulley and Waa Laa you've installed your new belt. Good Luck!

Dryer belt replacement


To replace the belt, you have to take the front off the dryer and lift out the drum. With the new belt, place it around the drum and with the drum in place put the excess belt through the idler pulley or bracket (depending on your model), then around the motor pulley. You push the bracket or idler arm toward the motor to get the "loop" of the belt around the pulley on the motor. Hope this helps! Paul Hoffmanns
