wrap the belt around the drum first then the slack at the bottom wraps around the motor shaft. Then it has to go either left or right side of the tensioner wheel, but the flat side must touch the tensioner wheel(not the ribbed side of the belt). You know you got it right when when there is tension on the belt when it is correctly installed. I dont have diagram so this is the most simplistic way of describing how to install it.
This is the plastic "wheel" on the motor that drags the drive belt to spin the dryer. you will need to push back into place with something thin. under the right hand side of the dryer there will be a grill under the motor. look for a black plastic "wheel" and move it away from the casing with something that can fit through the grill.
There is no adjustment provided for tensioning belt as it is a stretch belt.
Best way to do it is to remove the rear panel, tilt the weaher forwards, get someone to hold it for you.
Put belt round motor pulley first, then slowiy feed it round the drum pulley, turning the drum pulley at the same time, it will be very tight, so watch your fingers, just keep going until belt is on, if it comes off, just start over
You can line it up properly in the motor pulley grooves once you have got the belt on.
Please rate my solution.
You need to remove the rear panel the top console panel,,and then remove the whole cabinet to gain access to the drum and belt.
Then you need to release the front panel at the top to enable you to fit the belt.
Hope this helps.
You might want to check to make sure that you bought the correct replacement belt. A new belt SHOULD fit correctly if the replacement belt is the right one? Did you buy an original belt or a generic one? I have ran into problems by trying to substitute for the original. If I were you, I'd double check the belt #. It sounds to me like the belt might actually be the wrong one & be a little shorter than the original. Let me know if that works for you? It should. Good luck and have a good day!
Go to repairclinic.com and click on the "Repair Help" heading. On the following page is a link for "Dryer Belt Diagrams". Hotpoint will either be drawing M, D, or L. This depends upon the year your dryer was manufactured. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.
change the drive belt. evidently the belt has stretched to the point the belt tensioning device can no longer do its job. when you change the belt make a diagram of which way the belt is reaved through the tensioning device. if you don't you'll be back here asking how to arrange the belt.
