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.

Can't get replacement parts back on Kenmore 60 series dryer.


The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.

LER6636PW0 drum does not turn


hi fakestar,
here is an exploded view of the dyer, and you can see where the pulley came off.8dd05ba.gifpart number 24 are the pulleys.

another picture is for the belt and the tensioner
1e696ba.gifpart number 53 is the tensioner and part number 56 is the belt.

it just tricky on how to put the belt.

first put the pulley back to its location then slowly insert the drum to the dryer while putting the belt around the drum with the grouve of the belt facing the drum.
have a helper hold unto the drum , in place, then lean underneath towards the motor and put the tensioner to its slot at the flooring, just like in the drawing, then insert part of the belt under the pulley of the tensioner then with your left hand, hold the tensioner pulley and with your right hand, grab the belt which you inserted under the pulley, and bend the tensioner towards the right with your left hand while the right hand is pulling the belt towards the motor until the belt loops to the motor's pulley.

i hope i was able to explain that one.

that is really tricky to put on.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Belt came loose


BELTS DON'T JUST FALL OFF THERE MUST BE AN UNDER LYING PROBLEM.WHEN YOU FIGURE THAT OUT TO PUT THE BELT ON GET ON YOUR HANDS AND KNEES
REACH IN ONE ARM ON EACH SIDE UNDERNEATH THE DRUM WITH YOUR RIGHT HAND GRAB THE BELT (BE SURE ITS NOT TWISTED) WRAP IT AROUNG THE MOTOR PULLEY.
HOLD IT THERE, NOW WITH THE LEFT HAND PUSH THE TENSIONER PULLEY TOWARDS THE MOTOR
THE BELT SHOULD GO OVER THE MOTOR PULLEY FROM THE RIGHT SIDE. SO IF HOOKED UP CORECTLY THE BELT WILL GO DOWN THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TUB-AROUND THE LEFT SIDE OF THE TENSIONER PULLEY TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE MOTOR PULLEY THEN BACK UP THE LEFT SIDE OF THE DRUM
GOOD LUCK=)
