Drum Belt

PartSelect Number PS1148434

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, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.

This part fixes the following symptoms:

  • Will not tumble.
  • Noisy.
  • Will Not Start.
  • No heat or not enough heat.
  • Takes too long to dry.
  • Marks left on clothes.

Had a squeal. Replaced the top drum guide. Stll squealed. Replaced the rear ball and bearing. Replaced the belt to eliminate the problem later.

To tell the truth I got involved with other business and my wife did the repair. The tub did not come forward as described in the video. She had to use some force as the tub support ball had worn into the bearing. All said the job was simple and much thanks to the Tech video. Thanks.

Noisy dryer-screaching

I followed the on line video which was a help. I already had the dryer apart before looking for the parts, since I did not know the problem before disassemby. The replacement bearing kit has one fault. The new screws are only Phillips head, the original ones were a combo Square Drive/Phillips. Fortunately I had saved the original hardware. The replacement Phillips head screws are IMPOSSIBLE to use to cut the threads in the new bearing plate. I had to use the old ones with a square drive bit and it was still difficult. Perhaps the holes in the plate need to be a few thousandths larger in diameter to make this easier. After cutting the threads the new screws worked OK, but still difficult to install them while reaching in the drum. Square drive or even hex head would definitely be better.

Loud squeak, drum hard to turn.

Go with the usual disassembly process (front clips, two Phillips screws, wiring, etc.) The only thing I would add to the process is that when you replace the bearing on the back of the drum, start the three screws into the holes on the disc BEFORE you try to install it throught the back of the drum. You are making your own threads, so run the screws in and out a few times, then place it on the back of the drum and insert the screws. Hope this helps...

Broken dryer drum belt

Dismantled the dryer to determine that the belt was broken. Called a local supply outlet to request a belt. They said they couldn't find one. Did an online search and found Part Select. Called with the model number and within three days the part was delivered. Replaced the belt and the dryer was working within an hour. Hardest part was getting the dryer out of the laundry room. I would certainly call PartSelect again if I needed a part.

Dryer would light on first start but not during cycle

Unplugged dryer, pulled up on top panel to remove it. Removed a couple screws holding front panel to sides, and unplugged wiring harness. Removed front panel. Removed yellow plastic stop with one screw on top cross brace to allow removal of drum. Disengaged belt by cutting it since I was replacing it anyway. Lifted up on drum to disengage from rear bearing and carefully removed it. Removed old Drum Glide, cleaned surface and used included glue to attach new Glide. While glue was setting, vacuumed everything thouroghly and collected loose change. Replaced the two ignition coils by removing two screws and the retaining plate. Re-greased the rear bearing with high temp grease, and placed the new belt around drum. Make sure belt tensioning arm and spring are in place before replacing drum. Carefully insert the drum into rear bearing so as not to disturb the tensioning arm and spring. Lay on the floor and reach around each side of the motor to place the belt on the drive motor pulley and then carefully pull back tensioning arm to get the belt on that pulley. (This is the hardest part of the job.) Replaced the front and top covers in reverse order of above, plugged it in and it workes like new!

Dryer would not tumble and would trip the thermal overload protection

I disassembled the dryer as described in many of the other repair stories. One tip that I would like to share is to test the motor prior to assembly. I did this by removing the idler pulley and getting the drive belt clear of the motor pulley. Unfortunately I had already disassembled the top and front of the dryer so I had to jumper the door switch to test the motor. If you do it in this manner be very careful to ensure no wiring is shorted or going straight to ground. I found that my motor was shot and replaced it at the same time as doing the other repairs. I used a small magnet to hold the grounding ball in place while replacing the drum bearing, this worked very well and I was able to quickly assemble the parts without an "extra set of hands."

Squeaking screeching groaning

First I removed the top, custom on mine, as it was originally stacked. Then two screws inside near the top come out, and the front was pulled out at the top and lifted off the clips at the base. Best access to the belt tensioner is to remove the air intake panel on the back.

With the belt off the tensioner and motor pulley, the drum can be lifted up and out through the front after removing three screws from the inside that hold the drum to the bearing assembly. The original screws are #2 square/phillips combo, better to reuse than the new phillips only ones if a square drive bit is used.

Then the bearing assembly comes off by removing two screws from the back. For reassembly, there is a steel ball that goes in under the plate in the back. It sits in a hole in the plastic shell of the bearing assembly to help align it. I stuck it in place with grease from the bearing kit, and used my knee to hold the plate over it while holding the bearing assembly with one hand and starting the screws with the other.

The basket seal and drum glide felt were peeled off. Repeated soaking with a citrus based goo remover, scraping with a putty knife, and a little scrubbing with an abrasive plastic pad got the old glue off. A rinse and quick wipe with acetone prepared the surface for the new adhesive. It only needed a minute to get tacky, before the new seal and glide were stuck on.

Squealing (loudly!) rear drum bearing

Parts Select has my high praise! Everything from the ease of the on-line ordering system to the video on how to install the parts (very well done!!) to the quick deliver...all was very impressive. My wife thinks I'm pretty cool that I was able to pull this repair job off and I definitely will come back if I need another part! Thanks for helping this "weekend warrior" shine! Bruce.

Squeaking drum

Remove the top by using a putty knife and pressing in the tabs on either side. Open front door and remove three screws on inside of drum. Lift drum up and off of the bearing guide/hanger. I removed the motor cover, lower rear left and took a picuture of how it was threaded through the spring pulley system before removing the drum. I replaced the belt while I had the drum out. I also replaced the felt guides while I was in there. There are several good appliance sites out there - I really liked the Appliance guru. Try it out. You will be happy.

Wanted dryer stacked. Had original belt

I had to remove the top cover from the washer and transfer and move some brackets, then I stacked the dryer on the washer, and installed screws to hold unit down supplied in the kit. The dryer had the original belt. I rempved the front cover, slid the belt off and re strung the new one.
