    HI and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. What is your "make and model number" so I can pass instructions and parts information on how you the owner can replace your dryer belt. Without that information I would just be guessing and that would not be professional on my part.
    Thanks,
    Kelly

Once you have the drum loose inspect the rear bottom drum rollers and idle pulley for any signs of wear. Flat spots or hard to turn = replace.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I need to replace a belt on my hotpoint dreyer how do i do it


Disconnect power.

Open the door and look along the front upper edge of the door opening. In the top left and right rounded corner of the door opening you will see screws going upward into the top. Remove both screws and raise the top.

Look down inside the open top dryer from above . If unbroken it should be showing across the tub from left to right. If broken you won't see a belt (about 3/8" thick). If belt is missing, proceed. On each left and right edge there will be a screw holding the front assembly to the case of the dryer. Remove 1 on each side.

The dryer front can now be pulled toward you about 3 inches at the top. Take the new belt and work it over the drum from front by lifting and rotating the drum. Lay belt on drum about 1/2 way back from front with groves down on the drum and proceed to reassemble machine by reversing disassembly procedure.

When reassembling the top, part of each underside edge of the top must go beneath a sheet metal lip located at each right and left edge of the dryer just below the control panel. If the small space between the side and top panels is wider at the back than the front you have not accomplished this alignment, try again.

Once you have the top and front back on, pull out the dryer and remove the small access panel at the back bottom. The belt must be "looped" around the motor and idler pulley like this ( http://www.applianceaid.com/images/ldrger-idler-pulley.jpg ). Slowly turn the drum around one turn to line up the belt, to make sure that it will not fall off because of being crooked or twisted.

Motor is running but not turning drum to dry the clothes. We removed the back of dryer to see if maybe belt slipped or broke but can not see any belts and do not want to start removing a lot of screws...


Look from the rear, near the bottom. The belt wraps around the drum, and near the bottom is a tensioner that keeps tension on the belt. If it is broken, you'll see it laying on the floor of the dryer.

Drum doesn't turn in maytag neptune MDE9700AYW


Just remove the screws around the vent tube in the back and you can see the belt tensioner laying there on the floor of the dryer.
Most likely someone turned the drum the wrong direction and the belt came off.
The belt goes through the opening in the tensioner and under the idler pulley and then onto the motor drive pulley. Make sure to have the tensioner mounted into the floor first.
It just slides over into a slot and then over to the other side as tension is put on it.

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.

Belt busted


lets see what we can do. wrap the belt around hte tub assy. the little white roller w/ metal arm (called the tension pulley) needs to be installed .there should be a few ****s directly under ther motor pulley on floor of unit.two sets of ****s you wanna use the set to ther rear of unit. insert the prongs into the left rear **** and then pull the roller portion to the right.(it should hook the back prongs of idler into the rt side ****s. tension holds this into position so it will fall out if you let go) theres an opening in the metal under the roller mounts, e**ugh room to slide the belt through.heres how it works, install the idler as described above, feed the belt through the opening in the idler from the left and under roller through hole pull hte roller and pulley hard to the right.(its springy and as long as installed correctly ** worry of popping out) and loop around the motor pulley.let go of the pulley. and the belt should remain tensioned. it will only go on on way. GOOD LUCK
