You can get a belt at most home depot. i would call ahead and ask to be sure. or you can call an appliance store. changing the belt it fairly easy. you will need to take the top off the dryer. you can do this by taking a flat head screwdriver and inserting it into the crack at the front of it. you will need to pry up on it. there are 2 metal clasps that lock down the top this is what you are trying to pry away from the dryer so the lid will come off. once you have done this on one side you will need to do it again on the other side. once this is complete you should be able to flip the top of the dryer back out of your way. please open the door of the dryer and look up where the door meets the frame. there might be 2 screws holding the top on as well.

once this is done you will need to locate your tensiner. find that and release it so the belt will come off. than you will need to slightly elevate the drum of the dryer to take the belt off and put the new one on. you dryer may be one you can the front off as well. if so than i would suggest you do so. it would make it alot easier to replace the belt.

after everything is done install the new belt. and put your dryer back together......

Start switch not running dryer


There is a switch mounted near the motor that senses the belt tension. If the belt breaks or pops off the pulley for some reason you will get the situation you are describing. You need to replace or reinstall the belt.

Model # DBSR453EB2WW; sounds as if belt needs lubrication when operation dryer, high pitch sqeeking. Please advise.


The belt is attach only to the motor pulley and a tensioner pulley one of which is most likely in need of replacement...you could oil or grease them but that probably wouldn't last very long or work at all...??

Dryer will heat up but drum will not turn. Unable


Good day,
Sounds like a broken belt, Excellent tutorial on changing the belt on the link below.
Caution: Some models used a very poorly designed belt tensioner. If the tensioner is that style, replace it while purchasing the belt.
Appliance parts house counter men are well aware of the problem. The Roper line is made by whirlpool.

Admiral Dryer: 5 cycle 3 temperature electric


Unplug Dryer
Remove back (many screws)
Clean lint from interior & Vent Chute
check for breakage & parts on dryer floor
check for burn damage (wires burned off or char)
if no burn or char:
could be the "Dryer Coil" itself broke or
a "Snap Disc" usually mounted on the coil housing.
Very Serious!!!! Replace only!!!! Do not ever bypass!!!!
Stay clear of dryer for test start
Be ready to shut it down fast in case of problems
Always replace back & vent chute
Good luck,
Vinnie

Will not heat and belt is off


you can purchase a new belt from Sears on-line, or the brand you own. typically 20 dollars range. they come with directions to install the new belt, typically you remove the front panel of the dryer and replace the belt. it is not hard to do and really is best with 2 people. good luck!

Broken drum belt


Some large hardware stores like Home Depot stock them. Most appliance parts stores sell to the general public. Marcone appliance parts in St. Louis will sell mail order. Have the model and serial Number available. I always replace belt , idler pulley and back support wheels together. They usually go bad about the same time. I'll bet that the dryer is pretty loud isn't it. The support rollers usually cause the belt to break or a stiff pully. Total parts cost is under 50 dollars
