Dryer Belt broke after about 10 years of use

We noticed the drum wasn't spinning, but the heat was turning on. About 3 years ago the heat was broken and it turned out that there was a little thermal fuse in there that needed swapped out, that was easy too fix too. Anyway, I looked up on youtube how to change out dryer belts on maytag units and it looked pretty straight forward. The model they showed was easier to access than my model, but I was able to still figure it out. Just pop off the top panel (they used a putty knife at the two clip points on the front, but I just yanked it up with a little force and it popped right up). Then unscrew the two little screws holding the front panel on, then pull off the front panel completely. This exposes the drum. The example on youtube showed easy front access to the belt assembly, but in my model, there was a stand for the drum as well as the drum motor in the way. So I just pulled the whole drum out the front most of the way, then I went behind the drum where I had exposed the pully/motor shaft assembly and then fed in the new belt into belt tension assembly that connects to the motor. While keeping it taught so the ribs of the belt would stay on the motor head (I had my wife hold it taught) I pushed the drum back toward the hanging belt and then worked the edges of the belt around the drum until it once again was completely around the drum. Then I slowly pushed the drum all the way back into place while continually working the belt back into place as I went. I then manually rolled the drum around a few times to ensure it was rolling correctly and that the belt was indeed in the right place. After a few good spins without it changing position, I reassembled the unit. It was very painless and took about 15-20 minutes in all. Works just fine again.

I reviewed the instruction video. Excellant video. exactly like my dryer. Just followed the instructions. I did put a shoe under the drum for easier installation of belt onto idler pulley. I vacuumed and cleaned inside. Really not that dirty.Excellant web site and video instructions. Wish I had done the repair sooner. Also God Bless the residents of OK city, Moore, and ElReno.

Followed the instructions and really quite easy to fix. I didn't know why dryer wouldn't turn on but went with the odds that the thermal fuse was the problem-- and it was. Once I got the part it was back together and running in less than 30 minutes!

Dryer stopped spinning, but still putting out heat

Basically, I just did everything in the Parts Select video - it's what gave me the courage to attempt the repair myself and I am a 61 yr. old woman, who's not in great physical shape! The belt had broken. The two things that gave me the most trouble were disconnecting the tab on the door switch assembly and getting the screws to line up when replacing the front panel - one side lined up fine - the other needed a good push and an "alley-oop" to the side with my hip to fall into place. I did a few things that were not in the video which I think really helped me out. (1) I put an empty quart sized paint can under the dryer drum to hold it up - that really helped - I only had to support it slightly myself when threading the new belt. (2) I put a piece of duct tape across the bottom of the idler pulley to keep that from falling out of the holes when I was threading the new belt - that worked like a charm. Just be sure to remove the piece of duct tape and the paint can before you close up the dryer, if you decide to follow those two tips. (3) I also eventually put something under the front door panel to help raise it up and get it more in line with the two holes that it connects into, which made it easier for me to get it back into place. (4) Have some bandaids on hand - I sliced two fingers on different parts while installing the whole kit. (5) After you are done, either clean out the dryer vent hose or put a new one in - I was surprised by how much lint was clogged up in there. I never repaired any appliance before and if a 61 yr. old weakling like myself can do it, anyone can. Parts Select Rocks - the kit arrived a day and a half after it was shipped out and the video tells you everything you need to know to do this repair yourself and save big money. $49 versus probably $150 for a repairman and $500+ for a new dryer. Dryer is running like new! Would definitely do this again, if this or another dryer broke in the future. Thanks!

I Removed the rear panel. Then I used the instructions online to locate and test various parts and determined what was defective. I order the parts online and received them the next day. It took less than 30 minutes to do the repairs. The dryer works great.I will be using partselect.com in the future and would recommend them to anyone who is having problems with their appliance.

After viewing a series of youtube videos on Kenmore Dryer repairs, I used a volt-ohmmeter to determine that the thermal cut off was the most likely part that had gone bad. I installed the new part that I had ordered from PartSelect and our dryer was fixed.

After watching your video, and reviewing the directions, I was able to change the rollers, the belt and tension bar with ease. The parts cost me slightly under 50.00 and now the noise is gone and my dryer works great. I am very pleased with PARTSELECT and would use them again. The parts were at my house within three days of placing the order !!!

My Whirlpool washer/dryer combo is 15 years old and has given trouble-free service until this belt snapped. I went to the PartSelect website for the replacement part and found the instructional video. As a DIY neophyte I know my limits but this looked like something I could tackle and save a few bucks on. The part arrived pronto and installation went smooth as butta! I couldn't be happier and even the wife is impressed. Knowing what a service call would have cost makes the whole shebang even sweeter. Thank you PartSelect!
