Question about Dryers
Safety First unplug Dryer. you may be in luck if your dryer has a belt trip on the motor, if it does then where the wires(plug) goes into the motor there are two small buttons one trips it the other resets it( this will click when reset) if not then hopefully its the belt......you will need to open up the dryer, remove lint screen and on the two corners up front there are tabs, now if you do not want to scratch the dryer with a light piece of cloth or rag wrap around putty knife or screwdriver and push in, then open top and look for the belt, it should be centered on the drum, more then likely it broke. if it did then you will have to take the front off, there is like two screws and then disconnect the door switch, lift up and out, the drum will come off, buy a new belt and route it like the diagram shows, make sure the lip of the drum is riding on the drum rollers on the backside, might as well check them and clean all the lint out since we have the dryer disassembled, Good Luck Tim:
note kenmore is the first whirlpool diagram:
what the drum rollers should look like:

Hello av that.... pull the top off and examine the belt that goes around the drum, also check the pulley. There you will find your problem. Joe
