How to put belt back on drum on my dryer


You have to take the back off of the dryer and see the motor pully and the idler pully. slip the belt around the drum, around the mototr pully and usind a flat blade putty knife, work the belt over the idler pully so that it puts tension on the belt. you may have to loosen the idler pully housing bolts, but try it first with working it over the idler as that was set for optimum tension.

Whirlpool LER5620KQ1 - Dryer makes a clunking sound when running


It may be that one of the plastic pieces inside the trum has somthing under it. Coins of other things can get under them. You will have to tilt the top back so you can get to them. Unscrew 3 screws in each of them remove them and check them . Watch how you took it out so they can be put back just like they came out.
Take a putty knife and run it between the top and the front panel not far from the corner and push the two clips back one on each side. Raize the top up and brace it. Unhook the door switch take the two 5/16 screws out of the top of the front panel and pull the front panel toward you and lift it off the clips at the bottom. Put something under the front of the drum to hold it up while you take off the belt. On the right side reach under the drum and push the idler pully to the right and take the belt off the motor pully.Now you can take the drum and belt out. You could start the motor with the belt off and see if the motor is making the noise. Don't run too long. Now you can check the idler pully, the rollers the drum rides on in the back the felt on the front panel and the back of the drum. Also check the belt Be sure and mark how everything came off and put back just like it came off. Hope this helps

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.

How to replace the belt for a whirlpool ler5620kq1 dryer


It is a very tricky task to put this belt on but I think I can work you through it. When you get the belt around the drum and get to the idler, push the belt under the idler wheel and through the forks of the idler pully assy. attaching it to the pully on the motor. Tension should be on the idler pushing the wheel up toward the drum. Hope this helps.

Replaced idle pulley but drum wont spin when clothes are in it


Ok, when you removed the front cover to gain access to the idler pully, did you make sure that the drum didnt slip off one of the two roller wheels in the bottom rear of the dryer. If you get one of those roller wheels jammed and not in the track right, they will jam up. Look down at the bottom, grab the rollers, and pull them forward to be sure they are in the groove of the drum. Also, are you sure you relooped the belt correctly back around the idler pully? The best way to loop the belt is to place the idler pully in the correct position, then drop the belt down in front of it, loop the belt under the idler pully, push it back to tension everything, then take the loop and go over the motor pully (should be pretty tight). See if one of those solutions will help. Also be sure that you are properly getting the drum in the right position over the front seal (front should go on pretty easily, if not, reach your hand in the door, and lift up on the drum to center). Thanks and good luck!!!!
