This drum belt, often referred to as a drive belt, is used in the assembly of dryers. It goes around the drum, the idler pulley, and the motor pulley. As the armature on the motor spins, this belt is what rotates the drum and tumbles your clothes during the dry cycle. If you can hear the motor running but the drum is not moving that is a sign your belt is broken, stretched, or damaged, and can no longer grip the drum. This belt is 87 3/4 inches long, and is 1/4 inch wide. Because it is made of rubber it is common for this part to become brittle and need to be replaced. This is an authentic OEM replacement part, and it is sold individually. Remember to unplug your dryer before you begin repair work.

This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kenmore, Tappan, Kelvinator, Westinghouse, Crosley, Electrolux.

Question:

How do you install this belt, what side goes against the drum?

Norman
Answer:

Hi Norman, great question! You will need to remove the front assembly by releasing the clips from underneath the corners at the top. Once the front assembly is removed you can wind the new drum belt around the drum of the dryer. Should be fairly simple, but if you have any further questions please let us know.

Question:

My dryer is not spinning and I’m not sure if it is the belt or the pulley. I’ve been reading about both, but can you give me more info?

Elsie
Answer:

Hello Elsie, you should try spinning your drum by hand. If it does not give off any resistance, that usually means your drum belt has snapped. To know for sure, we suggest checking the drum belt, but that is your most likely problem. I hope this helps!

Question:

So I ordered a drum belt and a idler pulley for my dryer and none of the instructions say how to remove the front panel door to get at the parts. Can you help, thnks.

Blake
Answer:

Hi Blake, to remove the front panel door you will need remove the top panel and then the control panel from your dryer. After these are out you can unscrew the front panel, and then remove the belt. To remove the tub, you will just pull it out of the front by lifting up and out. Good luck with this repair!

Install rear bearing kit

Tip: After pre-taping the threads on the ball shaft, use painter’s tape to hold it in place while you attach the screws. Do the same with the bearing retainer. Don’t use tape that will leave a residue when you remove it or your clothes will smell like adhesive. Tip for stacker dryer: There is no need to remove the wires connected to the front panel. Swing the panel around to the side. Put a small bungee cord through the door opening and attach it firmly to the top of the dryer. Make sure the cord carries all the weight and that there is no strain on the wires.

Loud squeaky noise while dryer was on

My dad and I followed the video instructions and it was easy! No more ear piercing noise! I did find that once we took the front of the dryer off there was a lot of lint! Never thought to clean the front of the dryer out!
The video was a great way to see exactly what you needed to do, just follow what they say and you will have no problems!

Loud squealing sound

I followed the instructions on previous posts. The only problem I had was trying to remount the drum to the bearing unit which sits in the back of the driver. I just couldn't get the three holes lined up for the screws until I finally laid the dryer on its back, and then presto! - it went together in seconds.

This project probably took me longer than most people because I'm always looking things over and a little cautious in my work. I never realized how simple a dryer system is until I had dismantled this one. I spent $38 to fix my dryer rather than buy a new one. $10 of that was for the belt which I changed only because I was in there. Parts from partselect.com arrived 48 hours after ordering, and I used their basic shipping.

Dryer heated up but drum would not turn

The dryer was heating but the drum would not turn. We opened it up to see what the problem was. As soon as we opened it, we saw the belt was broken. I ordered a new one and after two trips to the laundromat I was ready to get the dryer fixed. That weekend we tackled the job. First I did a Google Search on Westinghouse dryer repair, found several ....one with a video:-) Punched in our model number and they went through the whole procedure....while it took them only 10 minutes, we took a little longer. But they had great ideas how to hold the drum while repairing, etc. Being recently laid-off this was a fantastic find. I have no idea how much a service call would be on the dryer nor could I afford a new one at this time.... Great old American Know How got it done.

Clothes got burn marks

After pulling out and unplugging my machine I followed the procedure already worked out by others. I bought and replaced all the parts that were listed as involved with this problem, since I only wanted to do this once and the parts were pretty cheap. The only slightly hard part was reconnecting the drum to the bearing, this could be easier with a third hand.Everything went well and the dryer works fine.

Broken dryer belt

My Son-in law did the repair. He removed the top, the front lower panel and finally the front panel with the door. It took a little more time than anticipated because there was not any explicit directions on how much to remove to replace the belt, but he got the job done and put it back together very quickly. Glad I have him to help when needed:).

Dryer was squeking

I watched the video on the web site after selecting the part and it was pretty simple. Everything worked just like the video showed. Probably could have been done faster but I took time to vacuum the inside of the dryer out. Really liked the video.

The dryer was making a screeching noise sometimes.

I followed the directions from your video, which was a great help. The only difficulty I had was getting the belt in the tension pulley - you can not see what you are doing and the spring is strong - but I got it. Thanks

Lint got caught up in the bottom and back of the dryer. We then had a small fire in the dryer when the lint caught fire in the chamber.

unplugged the dryer and "popped" the top with a screwdriver. Removed two phillips head screws located towards the top of the drum that hold the front panel in place.Unplug the two wires that attach to the front door switch. Removed the panel. In the center of the drum are three screws that mount it to the rear bearing assy. Thats the part that led to the breakdown of the front seal and guide blocks witch allowed lint to escape into the cabinet. Removed the screws then in the back of the dryer there is a small grill that allows air flow. If you take that off, there is the motor and belt tensioner.. My belt had been ruined so I just slid the drum out the front. Normally you would have to release the belt from the tension pulley and motor first. After sliding the drum out, you see the rear bearing assembly. Behind the flange, there are two screws that have to be removed to get the bearing assy out. Here is the tricky part. The two screws mount into a small plate that is on the back of the dryer. There is a tang in the center of that plate that holds a little steel ball that applies some tension to the bearing to help hold it in the correct position without making it to rigid to move around naturally. when you go to install the new bearing, tape that plate to the back of the dryer to hold it in place while you set the new bearing in place. unless you have someone to hold it, you will drop the ball and you will have to start over again. Using the grease provided grease the socket of the bearing and istall the ball of the flange into it. then take the little ball I described and apply grease to it and stick it to the backside of the bearing socket where you will see a hole drilled out. that ball sits in that hole and rests against the tang of the plate that I spoke of. after that the rest is easy. Remove the top felt piece with the teflon (white ) platwes from the top of the door assy. where the drum rides on. I used a wire brush to clean off the residue of dried glue. use some small pinch clamps or clothes pins to hold the new felt in place. Spread the glue provided onto the now clean surface and wait till it gets tacky ( afew minutes) then lay felt onto it evenly. then use the clamps to hold the felt while it dries. While thats drying, place the new belt over the ring at the back of the dryer. slide the drum in and as you do, pull the belt over the drum and just let it hang there. line up and istall the three screws to hold the drum to the rear bearing flange. then go to the back of the dryer and loop the belt around the motor shaft you will notice that the idler pulley on the tensioner slids right off towards you. Thats so you can get the belt on easier. Slide the pulley off and plce it agaist the belt, pull the tensioner to the right and when you have enough slack, push the idler onto the tensioner shaft. It sounds harder than it is it's really a lot easier when you see it. once the belt is installed remove the clamps from the new felt and install the front panel . place it in at the bottom first taking care to line it up in the grooves then push it into place. there are a couple of alignment clips that will help. Put the two screws in place, plug the switch wires back in, and lower the top. you are done. the only part i left out was to make sure you vacuum the whole thing out while you have it apart. especially where the lint trap is. there is usually a large buildup in there. plug it in and give it a test run.

Broken belt

Drum was not turning

Removed access plate in rear, raised top panel, removed two screws holding front panel (with door) put new belt over drum. Threaded belt through path between motor drive and idler wheel. Put everything back together.

My order was shipped very promptly, and was received very quickly. It is wonderful to have this service available on the internet. I can remember how difficult it used to be chasing down parts before. This was impossible in smaller cities.

Clothes were getting caught in the drum and causing burn marks

The upper glides were worn off and the felt had worn down causing the drum to have a gap at the bottom between the drum and the front panel. Clothes would get caught in this gap.
Removed the top cover and front cover. You do not have to remove the drum to install these parts.
I pulled off the old seals and guides. I used a Dremmel and wire brushed off the old glue. Applied the new glue [supplied with parts] and attached the new seal and guides. While the glue was drying I installed the new belt.
Reinstalled the front panel and the top panel.
Works like new.

Dryer making a really loud squeaking noise and messing up clothes

Okay, so when we put clothes in the dryer, depending on how big of a load, it would make this unbelievable racket! Sometimes, clothes would get caught at the top of the drum and looked like it was burnt. So, after seeing some videos from this site on Youtube, I decided to try to fix it myself. I HATE fixing things and am usually awful at it. However, according to the video, it looked like something I could handle. So, first things first. I took the dryer apart. Starting with popping open the top and then unscrewing the door. There are tons of websites with people telling you how to do it. It's realy simple once you know how to do it. When you do this, you need to make sure you remember what goes where. Write it down if you have to...especially the wire set up. Try not to lose any parts and take your time. You'll notice on the top of the door that there is some felt with some plastic pieces. Those pieces should ALL be intact and not broken. I used the drum glide kit and replaced the felt and plastic pieces. It even comes with adhesive. Do this part first so the glue can dry while you do other stuff. Use clamps or clothes pins to help it stick properly. Okay, so while that was going on, time to pull out the drum. You'll need to disconnect the belt first. On this model, it's a snap. You can access the pulley thingy from the BACK corner of the unit. Just unscrew the little cover and look inside...the belt pulley stuff is right there. Belt is really easy to loosen just by pressing down on the thing that has the spring attached to it. Once it's disconnected, then you can lift the drum UP and slide it out the front. Rememember, UP and out. The first time I tried it, it wouldnt come out...thought something was wrong but nothing was wrong at all. Just need to lift it up high...you'll see. While I had it apart, and I still wasnt sure what broke first, the bearing or the glides, I decided to just replace three things at once and be done with it for a few years. First, the rear drum assembly. You just take out the old and replace with the new. The bearing kit comes with everything you need. There is a little teeny ball that goes with this too...you'll know what I'm talking about when you see it. Best way to get that to stay in place is too grease it up with the stuff that comes in the kit. You'll need another set of hands to mount the bracket to the back of unit only because you can't reach around the whole machine. Okay, so that's done. Next,the belt! Put the belt around the drum just like the old one was...make sure the little notches are touching the drum..not the smooth side of the belt. Once you get it around the drum, push it back in the front and set the bearing on it's "seat." Go back to the back of the unit and attach the belt to the pulley. Again, really easy to get to. At this point the drum will still be lop-sided and you'll think something isn't right. It's fine. It will be lop-sided until you put the door back on that has the new glides. Give it a spin with your hand to make sure all is good.

In the end, I'd say this was pretty easy. Hardest part was really the time it took to learn how to do it. Don't be afraid! Get a helper just to hold up the lid and stuff like that. Makes it way better. Oh, and while you have it ALL apart, CLEAN everything! Especially inside the door where the lint trap (that doesn't trap much) is. Runs great now and I can't believe I did it! Spent about 65.00..saved probably $150.00. Good luck. Parts Select had great prices compared to my local stores and it all got here fast. Good luck!!
