Question about Dryers
G'day hoping you can help. I need a digram or video of how to place the drum belt on my Westinghouse LD605E dryer. I have watched your video but it is not the same dryer. I heve put the new belt on twice but once it's turned on it comes off again. It is on tightly and there is no slack in the belt. Hope you can assist. Not sure what i am doing wrong..... Cheers.
Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter LD605E. With luck, you will be presented with a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a generic Westinghhouse video showing disassembly and belt replacenent.

On some models it is possible to fit the belt on the tensioning pulley or pulleys , the wrong way.
Assuming you have the correct belt, then I suggest you try the belt on the pulley a different way.
Hope this helps.

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.

SOURCE: The belt has come off
It is something that you can repair yourself
You probably have a tensioner that has broken.
I am sorry but I do not have the Samsung routing available to me.
Below is a chart of the most common routing of dryer belts.
The part that has failed on your unit is probably the idler pulley/brackett.
You should be able to repair it without having to remove the drum

Unplug the dryer and pull it out from the wall.
Remove the top of the dryer by opening the door and taking out the screws along the top of the opening, then lifting the top. Remove the front of the dryer by reaching down into the opening at the top and taking out the screws holding the front in place. Move the front piece out of the way just enough so you can get to the drum inside, without disconnecting the electrical wires running from the front piece to the unit.
Move to the back of the dryer and remove the screws holding on the small access panel at the bottom. Remove the panel. This will give access to the two pulleys holding the thin belt that runs around the drum. With your pencil and paper, draw a diagram showing exactly how the pulleys are strung. Then slip the belt off the pulleys so it's hanging loosely on the drum.
Return to the front of the dry and pull the belt off the drum from the front. Put the new belt on the drum from the front, laying the ribbed side against the surface of the drum.
Return to the back of the dryer and restring the belt through the two pulleys, using your diagram as a guide. Use your hands to manually turn the drum at least one full turn to make sure the belt is lined up.
