Hello, W/D here.

Unplug the dryer first! Place the belt on the drum, then the motor pulley. Raise the tensioning pulley past the belt, and let it come to rest on the belt, placing it in tension. Roll the drum over several times by hand to align the belt on the drum, and close it back up.
Best regards,
--W/D--

Getting to drum in kitchenaid dryer


The way to visually see if the belt has broken or not is to 1) unplug the dryer. 2) Remove the lint screen on the top of the dryer. 3) take the two phillips head screws out where the lint trap is. 4) with a flat head screwdriver pop the top of the dryer up by sliding the driver inbetween the top and front of the dryer and pry upwards a little. 5) You'll now see the drum, if the belt is not around it its broken, and if it's visible try to lift it. If it taught, its good. IF THE BELT IS BROKEN OR LOOSE CONTINUE TO NEXT STEPS 6) on the left and right upper inner sides of the dryer you will find two screws, one on each side, remove these and the front should be easlily remove. 7) once off you'll be able to easily see the motor, the belts idler pulley, and everything else.
If the dryer is a DUET or HE2 or HE3 style, (dryers that match the front loader) then the way you take the top off is a little different. For these machines, there are 3 to 4 screws located on the top back side you'll need to remove, and then the dryer top can be slid back and removed

The dryer heats good but my whispering appliance now squels


The roller bearing on the belt's tensioner is at fault. Replacing the roller is the first step and also replace the belt too

Kitchenaid dryer


Yank the filter out the top.
remove the 2 phillips screws in that filter housing on the top of the machine so you can pop the spring clips and get the top up. Remove the front and get the drum out. Oil the wheels and idler and rerout the belt using this PIC.
