Go to 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.

SOURCE: I need to fit a new belt to a Creda Tumble Dryer

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

Need help refitting the tension spring and belt to a Westinghouse dryer

You need to feed the belt around the tensioner first but release the tension from the tensioner. Place something under it to keep it from expanding open and the feed the belt onto the drum. If you get it started you can turn the drum and it will feed itself onto the drum. Once that is done, align the belt visually for straightness and gently release the tension. Voila

Westinghouse Dryer Belt Diagrams and Replacement

Your dryer belt has broken and you have a new belt to install, but you do not know how to route the belt properly. Here are some pictures or diagrams to help you see how the belt needs to go. Of course the belt needs to go around the drum so that is not included.
The important part is the routing around the motor and the tensioner pulley.

For all Westinghouse models use this diagram:


Style: Flat belt
Installation Tips: Side of belt with words faces away from drum

The belt may look OK but could be slipping due to stretching.

You'll have to trouble shoot it... the belt either jumped off the motor pully or it may have broke. Either way you'll have to disconnect it and inspect it. Remember to always unplug the unit when servicing it. If the belt broke it is not hard to replace. The drums are held by gravity on rollers. Simply lift enough to get new belt pass the roller. If there are upper rollers in the way... simply remove them. Don't remove lower rollers. Lift the drum enough to install the belt and replace the upper rollers, relocate the new belt and close it up. Done.

How to install dryer belt for a ge model dbsr453gb3ww

  • Unplug the dryer and pull it out from the wall.

  • 2

    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.

  • 3

    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.

  • 4

    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.

  • 5

    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.
    Things You'll Need

    • Screwdriver with multiple bits

Older model dryer--drum will no longer spin. Need

The model number you provided is for a White Westinghouse. In order the access the internal cabinet to view the drum, you will need to lift the top panel. This is accomplished by inserting a putty knife along the front seam where the top meets the front of the dryer. About 2 inches in from each side is a small retaining clip. Push in with the putty knife and the top should pop free and lift up. The belt should be visible around the drum if it still intact. If the belt is loose, or missing, it has probably broken.

NOTE: The only way a belt will come off the drum while enclosed in the cabinet is if it breaks.

CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer before servicing. Dangerous voltage is still present inside the dryer even with it turned off.

To access the drum to replace the belt, you will need to remove the front panel. Remove the lint screen and lint screen cover in the door, first. Then, remove any screws holding the panel in place. The belt can be installed with the drum in place. Simply loop it around the drum first, then feed the remaining portion of the belt behind the blower fan housing and loop it on to the drive motor pulley and belt tensioner.

The part number for a replacement belt (if required) is 134503600. You can purchase a new one at any of the following websites:

Prices vary between these sites, so shop around for the best deal. The first three sites also offer very helpful exploded view parts diagrams you can use as reference. will have diagrams to show up how to properly route the dryer belt. Just click on the "Repair Help" link, followed by the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Refer to Diagram G under Westinghouse.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If the belt isn't the problem, please let me know.
