Whirlpool Dryer drum will not turn when turned on

It is very possible the belt that runs around the drum and motor has skipped off the pulley. remove back plate if possible, or lay it on its back and remove bottom plateto have a look. It may be just a case of relocating the belt back onto the pulley or if belt is broken a bit more surgery to replace the belt

Have to replace broken belt on a whirlpool awz 7813 tumble dryer and wondered what way the belt runs around tensioners

Double the belt and slide it between the two arms of the tension pulley. Then slip the belt over the drive motor pulley. The belt will be pushing against the tension pulley from underneath.

Whirlpool gas dryer won't spin and there is a deep humming sound with an electrical odor

Sounds like the drive belt has broken and is rubbing against the motor pulley, which causes the smell.
You can order a new one online, or from Sears. Replacement is a matter of gaining access to the inside of the dryer, remove the old belt, and figuring out how to get the new belt around the drum and motor pulley.

My Whirlpool dryer belt broke.

You should be able to reuse the idler pulley unless it is physically broken.
The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side and loop it around the motor pulley.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Good luck!

Change a belt?

Replacing the belt is not that hard.
  1. You have to take the back of the dryer off.
  2. Then lift the tension arm on the motor releasing the pressure on the belt.
  3. Inspect the tension pulley, checking the bearings on the pulley.
  4. Wrap the new belt around the drum, and wrap it around the tension pulley, lifting the tension pulley to adjust the belt.
  5. Reinstall the back of the dryer.
