Need to know where the tentioner pully goes to put the belt back on

Difficlut to specify as you did not indicate the make or model of your dryer, but usually the tensioner goes into slots on the machine base, and the belt holds the tensioner off of the interrupt/safety switch...

I need to see how the dryer belt on my samsung DV448 dryer is routed. It isn't broken, but it isn't taut as well.

It sounds like you have a bad or broken belt tensioner. It is located in the bottom of the unit close to the motor . It is a spring loaded pully assembly which keeps the belt taught. The belt simply goes around the drum and the motor shaft and the belt tensioner pully.

The belt for the dryer is not in place and the dryer is not longer spinning. how would i fix that? There is also a piece with a wheel on it that i cannot figure out where it goes but looks as though it is...

Look up "Tension Pully & Belt Diagram" on internet for your dryer on google or Dogpile. You should be able to find how to
put the Tension Pully back where it belongs & how to thread the belt through it and back on to the motor drive shaft. Check different sites for the right picture for your dryer. Here's a picture to get you started. Good luck,

My dryer belt from my Whirlpool model number lgr7646dq1 snapped off and I need a diagram how the belt goes back on. I already purchased a replacment belt but do not know how it goes back on. Thanks Richard

the belt number 341241, that should be packaged with a diagram as how to wind it around the motor shaft , and the idler pulley.youll need to pull the front off the machine to gain acees to the drumm area, fom there you can drape the belt over the drum, "red side out"might be a difficult to try to hold up the drum and try to secure the belt without the use of another set of hands( the front panel that you removed holds the weight of the unit normally) afeter you get the draped belt around the ider pully "snaps into the lower cabinet so that you can pull hte tension to the right. after fully extending the pully to the right wrap the belt around motor pully and allow the idler to release and hold tension on the belt. it will only go on one way! only tricky the first time , youll get it!!!

My Maytag MDE308DAYW needs a new belt. Belt was

If you go from the top. The belt goes down the drum, between the drum and idler pulloy,under the idler then pull it over to the top of the motor pully and loop over it. When it comes out from under the motor pully it goes under the drum and over to the other side of the drum, and back up to the top of the drum. I hope this makes since.
Please rate solution if helpful

I need to puy a new belt onto my creda dryer model number 37742

Remove the old belt making note of the pullys that it goes around. The belt should have a make and model number on it. You can order a replacement online or go to your local hardware or Sears store. After receiving the belt and are ready to install, note that one pully will have a bolt or screw that you can untighten so that the pully will move back and forth so the belt will fit on. Pull the pully tight against the new belt and tighten the bolt or screw. This should work.

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.
