Question:

I bought this part and I am replacing the old belt. I see a few groove options to wrap it around, one is prettttty deep and the other seems just out of reach? Which do I use?

Rene
Answer:

Hello Rene, great question! The belt does not usually slide in a groove, it is simply wound around the drum. When the belt is installed try turning the drum slowly to let it align properly. Best of luck with this repair!

Question:

So my dryer goes hot and sometimes tumbles, but sometimes it is very slow and other times it is normal… from what I can tell. Reading around I thought to change the belt but now I dont know if that will fix it. Thoughts? Advice? Help?

Avery
Answer:

Hello Avery, our advice to you is to first check the rollers on your dryer to make sure they are not seizing up and sticking. This could be caused by excessive wear and visible damage. I hope this helps!

Question:

Hi, my dryer is emitting a burning smell this happened one before and I replaced the belt (which fixed the problem) but now it is happening again. Should I be replacing something else or could the belt be faulty already??? Thanks

Lorna
Answer:

Hi Lorna, great question! Based on your symptoms we recommend checking the idler pulley and rollers on your dryer for tightness. If they are quite tight they should be replaced, and that should stop the burning smell. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Squel while running

remove front panels starting with lower panel and then the upper panel and also the screws that hold the top,lift the to and support it out of the way. removed the front drum support and reached in and took the belt off the idler pulley and then remove the drum. at this point you can get to the idler pulley and the drum support rollers. remove the snap rings and the old rollers and pulley and install the new parts in revers of removal. wrap the new belt around drum and place the drum on the rear support and reinstall the front drum support and put the belt on the same way as removed. reinstall front panels . done
Safety note: Be sure that the dryer plug and receptacle has no corrosion, mine did since the dryer is never unplugged since being installed, and after about 1/2 hr I could smell something burning and it was the plug and receptacle had melted due to a poor connection. Temp of the plug was over 160 deg. Installed new outlet and plug, all fine now

Noisey

Pulled bottom access panel of, pulled front door section off, pulled lint filter assembly out, pulled drum out, disconnected idler arm, installed new idler arm and wheel, new belt around drum, drum back in, front door assembly back on, then routed belt over idler arm wheel, lint assembly back on, bottom access panel back on. very easy job, the hardest part was pushing the new idler wheel over the new pulley lever, but with a few firm taps with a hammer it was on. *Tips...save the idler wheel washers and retaining clip from bad wheel and be sure to draw yourself a diagram of what color wires hook up where, in case you forget.

Belt was worn - ready to break, decided to replace the parts that commonly go bad.

I removed the bottom panel, then the larger front panel that includes the door. After that, removed the top 2 screws so that the top would swing up (but not lift off). After that, I removed the front "bulkhead", and the drum. Then it was just a short matter of sweeping everything out, and replacing the parts one by one. Most came off with a socket, or snap ring pliers. Pretty obvious at this point...

Be sure to label any wires - I removed 5 wires all total, and wrote down the colors and where they went.

It's great to have help when working with the drum. BTW, you CAN replace the belt without taking out the drum, but you better have strong fingers to move the belt tensioner and slip the belt on it - all with one hand. I did it, but that was the least "fun" part....

Screeeeaching

pulled dryer out far enough to lean it back against an object for supprt. removed small bottom front cover then door front after disconecting light and switch wires(make note of which goes where), remove top bolts and flip over carefully allowing to hang without disconnecting wire harness, remove belt and drum. at this point it was posible to get to the belt tentioner pully w/o removing the motor but was easier to replace after i discovered there were only two bolts holding the motor in place. at this point i needed two wrenches to remove the pully lever from the motor frame and replace. put everything back together in reverse and no more screaching. : total parts needed were $27.00 as i thankfully decided to replace pully and lever asumming that six months of screaching may have caused wear to the lever and was right. i replaced the belt while i was in there bringing the total to $42 and change. the belt was not needed so i now have a spare which may come in handy someday. thanks to partselect.com i saved BIG $ in repairs or replacement and now have turned the buzzer on to know when the laundry is done.

Loud sharp noise when the dryer was spinning

I found a shrieking noise repair on this website, followed their instructions (winging it a bit) and was able to fix my dryer for the price of those parts - excellent!!! As the other instructions said, mark EVERY wire.
I have additional instructions - MARK EVERY SCREW you remove. I had 4 extras when I was finished and now I'm a bit worried about where they belong :)

Dryer made horrible screeching noise

I pried open the top of the dryer with a screwdriver. i took digital pictures (for reference)of 3 sets of wires needing to be unplugged during repair. I removed 6 nut screws to get to the repair. took the barrel out, replaced the pully wheel and belt paying attention to how they were originally. The pully was a little awkward to take off and put on, but not bad. My dryer purrs now. yahoooo!

Noisy, squeeks, bearings bad

Identified Problem by using silicone spray on drum bearing wheels, when noise stopped I knew bearings were bad. Removed drum per PartsSelect diagram of my dryer then removed wheels, and bearing shaft.
Will need a snap ring pliers with small holes to remove snap rings. I ordered new shafts, washers,snap rings,drum wheels, and belt. Installing belt use two hands and make sure tension bar is correct review belt locations before repair. Also cleaned and vacumned inside of Dryer. Remember to unplug, I did not and when door was removed I caused a short that blew fuse, lucky that I did not damage dryer in process. Working well now with no nose.

Machine was making noise

Found the belt was making the noise because it was badly cracked. Took the front of the dryer off and removed the s/s tumbling drum. Checked the ideler wheels and the tension wheel for wear and found none. Re-assembled the dryer with the new belt. After this was completed I replaced the time control in the top panel. This was rather easy as it only slips out after taking apart the box. After this the machine was switched on and every think ran quietly again. The discriptions and pictures used in thier web site is very helpful and shipment was very quick.
