Simpson Maxidry 362. Tips on putting back together....? Roller tensioner spring attached to...?


Here are the steps to get the belt and tension pulley and spring attached properly.
1. Remove the drum from the dryer housing
2. Fit the belt around the drum, secure the belt to the drum (grooved side towards the drum, flat side away from the drum) with small strips of masking tape. Leave a loop of about 10-15 cm's free to fit around the motor. (This was Hurdle #1, it was next to impossible to hold the belt on with one hand and attempt to work out the tension pulley thing at the same time)
3. Place the drum back in to the dryer housing and rotate it so that your belt loop is facing the motor.
4. (Hurdle #2) Attach the tension pulley to the motor assembly bracket. (There should be slots in the bracket for the pulley bracket to insert into. The pulley faces away from the motor, about a 45 degree angle.
5. (Hurdle #3) Feed the belt through (under) the pulley and then over the motor's drive wheel or nub, whatever it's called.
6. (Finaly Hurdle) Attach the spring to the pulley assembly. In the centre of the dryer housing floor, there should be a seam, in the centre of this seam there is a small hole where the other end of the spring attaches too. Stretch and insert the other end of the spring into this hole.
7. Remove the masking tape that's holding the belt down.
8. Re-assemble dryer and your done.

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.

Simpson Maxidry Tumble dryer (Cloths dryer) How


Hi there, There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier. Once installed remove the tape. The dryer now works like a dream. See the attached photo. Good Luck!8e72e75.jpg

I have a GE Dryer Serial #GL228541G Model DD25310 BAC WH. I am trying to replace the belt around the drum. I tried hooking the belt around the hooks to tighten the belt, but the drum is not turning.


Does the motor run? The path of the belt is a little tricky. You have to push a loop of the belt around the belt tightener and then over the motor pulley. The top of the belt loop will ride against either a rolling wheel, or a plastic guide made out of low friction plastic. The bottom of the loop of belt should only go over to the drum. The tensioner is held in place by a tab that fits into the bottom pan of the dryer.

How to get into the cabinet? I have a Kenmore Dryer that hums but the drum won't turn, maybe belt! Model # 110 62942100 thanks, tom


Hi,

Kenmore dryer belt


  • UNPLUG DRYER
  • remove lint filter
  • remove two screws in lint filter panel securing cabinet lid to filter frame
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, depress clips ~2inches in from the front corners of the lid to release cabinet lid
  • tilt lid up
  • remove 1 screw from each side 1/3 the way down
  • remove cabinet front and door
  • motor bearings tensioner are all visible

  • lift out drum forwards
  • check support rollers felts and nylon glide bearings for wear
    (worn bearing surfaces are the most common cause of belt breakage, and you dont want to do it again next month)
  • make sure tensioner is still installed in cabinet base, sometimes breaking belts pull them out
  • loop belt around drum at prior wear marks
  • reinsert drum
  • pull tensioner to end of travel against spring
  • loop belt around motor pully and tensioner
  • relax tensioner
  • rotate drum by hand to make sure belt wont jump off.
Thanks

Drum belt assembly


take the belt and put it around the drum with the grooves touching the drum, then push a loop of the belt thru the idler pulley bracket and hook it onto the motor pulley. then the idler pulley and bracket will cause tension on the belt. if you need to see a picture then search your model number on google and it should show you a picture of how the belt goes around the motor.
by the way you dont have a good model number, or it is too new to be in most web sites.
