Kenmore Elite Driver Belt

Our driver belt snapped. We ordered a replacement part but cannot find a diagram of the interior of the dryer. It is not in the owner's manual. Does anyone have this diagram to assist in replacing the belt?

Kenmore elite front load dryer has power but won't turn on. It beeps once like OT is going to start but nothing


check to see if the belt broke,there's a switch on the belt pulley on some models,if the belt snaps from to large a load the pulley doesn't have any tension on it and the switch opens so the dryer won't run.when you put the belt back on the pulley sets the switch so power will go tough it again and the dryer will run,also check the door switch,if someone shut the door to hard and broke the switch the dryer won't run.these are the easy things to check without needing a meter.hopeit helps,if you're in mass. and need a tech you can call peter de's appliance 781-438-9442 very good techs

How to Install a Dryer Belt on Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet Dryers


This advice is for dryer belt replacement on most Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet model dryers. If in doubt, please provide me with a complete model number of your dryer and I will determine if these instructions apply.

In order to replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet/Kenmore Elite dryers, you need to perform the following steps:


1. UNPLUG the dryer before servicing. Dangerous voltage is still present inside the dryer even when it is turned off.


2. Open the door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You will not be able to remove the air blower cover with the lint screen in place.


3. Remove the lower toe panel located directly below the door by loosening the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the dryer up can provide better access to the screws (a 2x4 works well).


4. Disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (usually yellow wires with a white plug to the right of the blower assembly) and any ground wires that may be connected to the front panel.


5. Remove the air blower cover by locating and removing the mounting screws.

NOTE: This is a good time to clean the blower fan housing, squirrel cage motor and dryer interior cabinet.


6. Remove the top panel of the dryer by locating and removing the screws holding the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then come off.


7. Locate the two screws that hold the operator console in place. There should be one on each side under the top panel. Remove the screws and carefully lift the panel straight up.

NOTE: You do not need to disconnect the ribbon cables. Carefully lay the console across the top of the dryer out of the way.


8. Disconnect the door switch connector plug and remove the dryer front panel by locating the four screws that hold it in place. Loosen the two screws along the bottom of the panel and leave in place. Remove the top two screws and lift up and turn the whole front panel slightly counter-clockwise to release the drum supports from the dryer drum.

NOTE: Make sure the dryer door is closed when removing the front panel to avoid damaging the door hinges.


9. You can leave the drum in place to install the new belt. Loop the belt onto the dryer drum with the ribbed side facing the drum. Reach in behind the air blower with both hands and pull the idler pulley to the right with your right hand to release the tension. With your left hand loop the belt over the drive motor pulley, then release the idler pulley making sure the belt rests on the pulley. You should feel the belt tighten with tension.

NOTE: If you need further clarification on how to properly route the dryer belt you can go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page, locate the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section. Refer to diagram K.


10. Reinstall the front panel by turning it slightly counter-clockwise and aligning the front drum supports under the front of the drum. Once the supports are under the drum, turn the front panel clockwise and lift up, placing it on the bottom two screws. Reinstall and tighten the top two screws.


11. Reinstall the door switch connector plug and reinstall the operator console. Use caution not to put too much stress on the ribbon cables.


12. Reinstall dryer top panel.


13. Reinstall air blower cover and reconnect the auto dry sensor and ground wire.


14. Reinstall toe panel by inserting the top portion first and pushing up. Push lower portion of the panel in place and reinstall screws.


I know this may seem like a lot, but its actually fairly simple if you follow the steps provided. The trickiest part will be getting the dryer belt installed correctly and removing and reinstalling the front panel. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My kenmore oasis dryer comes on but doesn't run


The tumbler is belt-driven so it could be a broken or slipped belt. It isn't hard to replace the belt itself but sometimes getting to it can be a real pain. Search online for service manual or diagrams if you want to attempt it yourself.

My kenmore clothes dryer has stopped spinning and is just making


The pulley in question is likely a spring loaded idler pulley, used to keep tension on the belt. It likely hangs onto the dryer's frame, & is held in place by the belt. If you order a new belt from Sears, ask them for a belt path diagram, which should show the proper pulley position.
