There are many styles and different models of dryers but the one thing they all have in common is the dryer has a belt that turns the drum.In the procedure below we will show you how to take apart your dryer,change your belt,and show you the correct threading of your belt. Here is a typical Kenmore dryer idler pulley(it has a plastic wheel on it) motor/pulley (the pulley is attached to the backside of the motor) and the belt configuration.Note the picture below.
Each different model dryer also has a different lint trap location. This location will have a bearing on how your dryer is taken apart and how to change your belt.
Note the location of your lint trap and choose the correct video on how to take your dryer apart. There are two different locations,on top,and in the door.
Hi Victor - I have the same issue I have exposed the motor and removed the larger belt and the spring but I can not see a way to get the smaller belt over the back spindle (The part the actual motor is attached too) - did you manage to do this? did you have to take the machine apart completely to fit this?
I am not familiar with this particular dryer, but all electric dryers are designed so that the consumer can replace the belt. Open the access door ( the back, the top, or the removable panel at the bottom front) and the belt should be visible; a few minutes of study will show you what you need to do to change it.
change the drive belt. evidently the belt has stretched to the point the belt tensioning device can no longer do its job. when you change the belt make a diagram of which way the belt is reaved through the tensioning device. if you don't you'll be back here asking how to arrange the belt.
