I'm looking at the same problem with my Kenmore. You access from the front on mine. I had two screws under my pull out lint filter that I had to remove then pry up the top, stiff putty knife might be needed. Mine just pull up. Then I had one screw on top left inside front cover and once that was off the door can be lifted slightly on the left side then swung open. Use a bungee cord or someone to hold the tumble barrel up. You should be able to see everything from floor level.

Yours will be one of these 2 diagrams:

The belt is broken and we need a replacement for it.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Go to any of these sites and enter your model number:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com

http://www.appliancepartspros.com

http://www.repairclinic.com

If you have difficulty locating your belt I need your complete model number and will use those same sites to find your belt for you. There are 2 different sized belts for a whirlpool dryer depending upon the model number. 27 inch dryer and 29 inch dryer.

Download this manual to help you change the belt:
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/4829abde74a34d7f85256ab000620794/$FILE/4322260.pdf

The order of removal is the toe panel, top and then the front panel to gain access to change the belt.
Toe panel (page 15 / pdf file page 20)
Top panel (page 14 / pdf flie page 19)
Front panel (page 19 / pdf file page 24)

Make sure you inspect the drum seals (felts) and the the drum rollers in the process of changing the belt.

The manual link I passed is for the 27 inch dryer but access is exactly the same for the larger dryer.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Changing dryer belt on kirkland/whirlpool dryer took apart dryer but dont see where belt suppose to mount.


Hello. The belt goes around the tub and the tension pulley. In fact, it is always a good idea to replace both the belt and the idler/tension pulley at the same time. J.

If you want a schematic go to searsdirect.com and enter your model number. J.

How do I change my dryer belt on 1994 MAYTAG dryer?


Assuming this is stand alone front loading dryer, to replace the belt, you access the drum from both the back service access panel and the top. Pop the top at the front corners and it will hinge up at the back.

Reply back with the make and model number of your specific dryer and I can help you more.

Drum belt assembly


take the belt and put it around the drum with the grooves touching the drum, then push a loop of the belt thru the idler pulley bracket and hook it onto the motor pulley. then the idler pulley and bracket will cause tension on the belt. if you need to see a picture then search your model number on google and it should show you a picture of how the belt goes around the motor.
by the way you dont have a good model number, or it is too new to be in most web sites.

I need to change a dryer belt on GE model DBxR463EBoWW electric dryer we have the belt on but it is loose


First, make sure you are using the proper belt. For your model
DBXR4630WW that would be a part number WE12M29. Next, the grooves of the belt touch the drum. Now, looking at it from the front side, the belt goes from the left side of the drum directly to the motor drive pulley, then around the tensioning pulley, and then back to the bottom right back around drum.
