I figured this one out...there are two pairs slots...the tab of the idler pulley goes in the right slot near the motor and the idler pulley goes off to the left.

belts do not figure 8
they look something like this
f6516ed.jpg the front panel comes off, to access the drum without removing bearings etc, and the belt can be placed easily, around the drum and motor pulley.
then pull the tensioner hard against its spring, loop the belt around the tensioner and allow the spring to tension the belt.

This is similar to your model. Buy the belt online or a appliance parts store.

I replaced the belt and need to know how the tensioner goes back on


From the front with the belt around the drum in the correct position, and the drum in place. Reach in under the drum and put the belt around the pulley on the drive motor. Then find the idler pulley. It should be pulled to the base of the drier to the left of the drive motor pulley. Pull the idler pulley up and to the right and place it on the outside of the of the belt coming down from the drum to the drive pulley. It should pull back to the left and tension the belt.

Have an LG WASHER / DRYER - model: F1403RD6 Just got a burning smell and now it won't turn for drying (still works on wash). Any thoughts? thanks


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley or a faulty motor.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
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 or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the screws that hold the filter housing.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor.
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 thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

UNABLE TO REPLACE BELT IN DRIER, ADS2 -K or AD52 -K


Normally you need to obtain access to the complete circumference of the drum to fit the belt. Depending on your machine you can either remove the front of the dryer, or release the rear bearing support so that you can slide the new belt over the drum. The belt then just slips over the motor pulley and you need to check on the belt tension, usually done by adjusting the motor.

Tumble dryer


  1. This doesn't appear to be a simple task so I would suggest making sure you have the time to do this so your project does not get interrupted.
  2. Step 2 1: Remove power (better now than later ;-) )

    2: Remove the front door assembly (2 screws holding the hinge to the drier carcase)

    3: Remove the top cover (2 screws at the rear, then slide the top backwards and lift off). It's a good idea to remove any fluff from the innards at this point.
  3. Step 3 4: Lay the drier carefully on it's front (I used a pillow to protect the timer and 2 pushbuttons)

    5: Remove the cover over the drum bearing and earth strap (2 screws)

    6: Remove the cover over the fan assembly (numerous screws)
  4. Step 4 7: Remove the earthing bracket (copper assembly held by 2 small screws) and then remove the circlip and washer on the drum axle

    8: Remove the fan vanes (3 hex screws holding 2 metal flanges that make up the impeller fan)

    9: Remove all screws around the rear cover and gently lift it up (I supported one edge with a basin perched on the rear of the drum, it gives access to the motor chassy etc. There's a vent tube that will come dislodged at this point; it's easy to relocate later.
  5. Step 5 10: Remove any bits of the old belt and drop the new one round the drum. Use tape to hold the belt in the correct position on the drum (if you don't do this, you WON'T gave enough slack to go round the motor pulley....believe me!!)

    11: Carefully feed the belt past one idler wheel and then over the motor pulley. Slowly turn the drum slightly to encourage the belt to feed round the second idler wheel.
  6. Step 6 12: Remove the tape used to hold the belt in place

    13: Replace the rear cover (make sure the vent tube is seated correctly at front and rear). Tighten all screws.
  7. Step 7 14: Replace the Fan assembly

    15: Replace the drum bearing circlip (I took the opportunity of rotating the bearing through 180 degrees). Replace the copper earthing strap.

    16: Replace the fan housing cover and drum bearing cover. (Make sure the heating element is free of fluff and crud)
  8. Step 8 17: Replace the top cover

    18: Fire up the beast!!! It may smell a little if there's anything still on the heating element.

Drier Belt Replacement on GE model DDG7580


Open the door and remove four screws which go into the dryer top. Swing top back. Take out the screw on each side holding the dryer front to the side panels near the open top. Tilt the dryer front forward and lift it off the bottom pegs, then swing it to the side. Leave door switch wires connected. Lift up slightly on drum to allow the belt to be placed around drum. (grooves of WE12X82 belt touch the drum) Belt goes down from the left side of the dryer directly to the grooved motor pulley, then around the belt tensioning pulley and back to the drum. Your model has a removable panel at the bottom side of the back which will allow easy access to the motor pulley area.
