Replacing the belt is not that hard.

  1. You have to take the back of the dryer off.
  2. Then lift the tension arm on the motor releasing the pressure on the belt.
  3. Inspect the tension pulley, checking the bearings on the pulley.
  4. Wrap the new belt around the drum, and wrap it around the tension pulley, lifting the tension pulley to adjust the belt.
  5. Reinstall the back of the dryer.

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?

Changing belt on my dryer


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.

Need to change the belt on my Maytag Performa Dryer


The belt is a 341241, a pretty standard belt. To install it you must get the front panel off. Do this by using a putty knife: 549402b.jpgUse this hady DRYER BELT ROUTING guide

Hotpoint condenser dryer ctd00


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.

The belt goes around the pully so that the pully tension takes the slack out of the belt. Just like the serpentine belt on your car.
