The grooved side should be in contact with the drum as well as the drive pulley. And blank/flat side of the belt should be in contact with the tension pulley.

How do I get to the igniter on my WP Gas Dryer (LGR8648PG)?


In order to get to the burner assembly where the igniter is located, you will need to open the dryer cabinet and remove the drum by following these steps:


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.


6. Remove the dryer drum. Release the belt tension, by pushing the idler pulley (tensioner) to the right (away from the belt) and remove the belt from around the motor pulley. Then, with the belt still wrapped around the drum, use the belt to lift the entire drum out of the cabinet.

You can reference the following websites for helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with assembling and disassembling your dryer:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com

Once you have completed your repairs, reassemble the dryer as follows:

1. Re-install the drum, making sure the rollers are seated properly in the groove around the perimeter in the rear. Make sure the belt is looped around the drum with the groove side facing the drum.

2. Have someone hold the drum in place while you re-install the belt over the tension pulley and motor. If working alone, kneel down so you can see the tensioner and motor and rest the drum front on your shoulder or knee.

NOTE: With the belt removed, this may cause the idler pulley (tensioner) to come loose. This is normal with no tension on the pulley to hold it in place.



3. Reinstall the belt tensioner by following these steps:

a. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum.

b. 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.)

c. 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.

NOTE: 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 Amana is manufactured by Whirlpool).


4. 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 assist may make it easier.


5. 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 you find this information helpful.

I have an older kenmore 70 series dryer. the belt broke and im trying to figure out where the pulley is supposed to go and how the belt is supposed to go


If you are referring to the tension pulley that keeps the belt tight on the drum, it is common for it to come loose when the belt breaks because there is no longer any tension holding it in place. Just follow these steps to reinstall:

1. Make sure the drive belt is looped 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).

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 with your left hand, 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 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.


If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate around the dryer door opening) so that I may be able to confirm your dryer configuration. I hope this helps you.

Diagram for setting up belt on drum tenion


Replacing the Belt
  • Step 1 Put the dryer door-side down on the floor. This allows easier access to the back.
  • Step 2 Locate the center pivot suspending the dryer drum. If held by a clamp, removed any nuts or screws retaining the pivot axle.
  • Step 3 Move the pivot out of the bracket and slide the new belt inside the bracket.
  • Step 4 Replace the drum pivot in the bracket and reassemble the bracket.
    Looping the Belt
  • Step 1 Flip the dryer up so it is once again sitting upright.
  • Step 2 Locate the groove or wear mark the previous belt left in in the circumference of the drum.
  • Step 3 Wrap the belt around the drum in this groove or wear mark, with available slack at the bottom of the drum.
  • Step 4 Wrap the belt around the drive wheel located on the drive motor in the lower corner of the dryer.
  • Step 5 Insure the belt is snug but not biting the drive wheel. This indicates the proper size belt is installed.
    Reassembly
  • Step 1 Reattach any clips or wires to the back cover.
  • Step 2 Reattach the back cover using the six-sided sheet metal screws removed earlier.
  • Step 3 Reattach the top cover. Close tightly so clips secure the cover.
  • Step 4 Plug in the dryer and turn it on to test the belt repair.
  • Step 5 Reattach the dryer vent conduit

    Does the flat side of the belt go against the drum of a maytag dryer or does the serpentine


    If the belt has grooves cut into it, then the grooved side goes onto the drum, and the flat side facing uppermost.

    I have a kenmore model#110.76662501 gas dryer. I


    To access the dryer interior cabinet, follow these steps:

    1. Unplug the dryer and turn off gas supply before servicing.
    2. Remove the lint screen on the top of the dryer and locate the two screws under it.
    3. Remove the two screws and the the top panel will lift up.
    4. Disconnect the door switch connector plug and the ground wire (if installed). You may have to use a small flat blade screwdriver to unlock the tabs on the connector.
    5. Locate the two mounting screws that hold the front panel to the two side panels. There should be one on each side of the dryer. Place your body against the front panel to keep the door closed and to support as you remove the screws.
    6. With the front panel screws removed, grasp the entire front panel in the top center and lift straight up to remove.

    You should be able to access the burner assembly now. You shouldn't have to remove the drum, but you can if it will give you better access. To do so, simply release the belt tension by taking the idler pulley and lifting up on the wheel. Remove the belt from the drive motor shaft and leave the belt wrapped around the drum. Using the belt as a handle, you can lift straight up and the entire drum will come out of the dryer.

    NOTE: The idler pulley may come detached from the dryer cabinet floor when the belt tension is removed. This is normal.

    Remember how the belt goes back in the dryer. If you forget you can re-install the belt and pulley by following these steps:

    1. 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).

    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. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H.

    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 still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    NOTE: To avoid any confusion, your Kenmore dryer is manufactured by Whirlpool. The "110" prefix in the model number identifies the manufacturer.

    Can't get belt on dryer properly


    The routing for the belt should be on a diagram somewhere inside the dryer. It sounds like the belt is not properly routed around the idler/tensioner pulley -- this is a very tricky routing -- without a diagram, it's a bunch of trial and error. Can you find the routing diagram?
