SOURCE: Dryer won't start

belts, as in 2?? you do have an old speed queen. did you make sure the blower is able to turn freely?
if so then you most likely have a bad winding in the motor. it is costly to replace and you should go out and get a new dryer. too much money to fix this old unit.
by the way the model number is under the front panel in the center, on a metal plate.
doesnt matter since you know its 25 years old and its time to update.

SOURCE: Hotpoint Dryer belt broken

http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php From what I see, you have to remove the front, and maybe the drum to get at the belt. See what instructions come with a new belt.

SOURCE: The belt is broken. How do I install a new belt.

Hi, UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off.
There should be instructions that came with the belt. I will try and explain how this goes on. The idler pulley fits in a slot right in front of the motor. Put the belt over the drum with ribs touching drum. Now, thread the belt through the idler pulley wheel and bracket and set the belt on the motor pulley. The ribs should rest in the grooves on the motor pulley.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know. Please rate me performance so that others as well as myself will know how I am doing.

Thanks
Vic

SOURCE: I have a Hotpoint Dryer and the belt snapped, we

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.

If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt,felt seal, and drum.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
The route of the belt will go around the motor pulley first, then it will go around the idler arm bracket with pulley, then around the drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
http://www.partselect.com/
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

Why won't my dryer turn ?


It sounds like the belt is broken, it is a big belt that turns it around the drum..you can look up your dryer by finding the make and model and serial number on the back someplace, then look up which part number you need, if you dont know how to install a new belt, a handy man may be able to help you for much less than getting manufacture to come out unless its under warranty still, good luck

Go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page, look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Diagrams M, D, or L under the General Electric section will show how your dryer belt goes back on. If you need assistance in determining how old your dryer is, post your serial number and I can determine for you. I hope this helps you.

Dryer wont spin


Take the back off  of the drier after unplugging and the beklt goes from the motor pully all the way around outside of the the drum.You can't miss it. Most of the Kenmore drier belts are the same. WE have apliance repair parts stores locally.If you also do , go to the store with the old belt and match it up.
