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.

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:

My dryer is not geting hot

Michael
Answer:

Hi Michael, Thank you for your inquiry. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. If you have an electric dryer you will need to check the heating element, the high limit thermostat and the cycling thermostat. If you have a gas dryer you will need to check the igniter, the radiant flame sensor, the gas control valve and the coils. There are some other parts you will need to check as well. They are the temperature sensor, the timer and the thermal fuse. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

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!

Roller wheels worn out

Super Simple. Remove lower front panel (2 screws). Remove front door & panel (2 more screws). Disconnect push on wire connectors after marking each side with a sharpie pen (for easy re-assembly). Top hinges up towards the rear and rests against the wall. Lift out the drum. Remove snap rings on the shaft that holds the guide wheels at the rear of the drum. remove wheels. One of the shaft pieces that holds the wheel was shot so I replaced that (2 screws). Put new wheels back on. This was actually fairly hard. the new shaft seemed to have a larger receiving end. with hammer and lube I eventually got it on. Re-assemble in reverse order. took about 20 minutes. the only special tool was snap ring pliers (could easily get snap rings off with a flat screw driver.

Loud screeching sound

Unplug the dryer.Removed top. Then removed wires from switch to door (make sure you mark them). Removed front door and bottom panel. Removed lint trap assembly.All bolt heads were 5/16 and used putty knife for top 2 spring clips. Removed belt (remember how it goes) and took out drum. Next clean and vacuum everything really good. Have a good set of retaining ring pliers, these are used to remove the 2 drum support rollers and idler pulley. Drum support rollers have FRONT marked on them, make sure they are facing out. Always make sure retaining rings are locked in there grooves. Next put new belt on drum and place drum back in dryer. Next put put belt on motor pulley and push up on idler puller to run belt under it (this is probably the hardest part). Now just go in reverse order in putting everything back on. Always make sure to double check everthing like the belt make sure its on right and not twisted and check drum make sure its on support rollers and is set right when lint trap assembly is installed and wires reconnected. When cleaning i used a vacuum and an air compressor to blow out all the debris from the motor and other areas.

Amana dryer would not heat-up

My problem was that my AMANA dryer would not heat. The site suggested testing the two thermostats so I opened the dryer but didn’t follow the instructions in the video tutorial on the site since my AMANA is different. I used a nut driver and needle-nosed pliers for the whole job. Here’s what I did:

1. Unplugged the dryer.

2. Disconnected the exhaust pipe at the dryer.

3. Pulled dryer away from back wall about two feet.

4. Removed the two bottom panel screws (floor level) and removed panel.

5. Removed the two door panel screws and removed door panel by pulling out at the bottom until the two spring clips released from the top panel.

6. Noted the colors of the wires going to the door switch and removed (green, black and white from left to right).

7. Noted the colors of the wires going to the lamp and removed (bottom - black and top - red.)

8. Removed the two top panel screws, lifted up the top panel and leaned it against a support.

9. Removed the four bulkhead screws and carefully lifted up and removed the bulkhead being sure to support the drum. Took note of the belt path around the motor and idler pulleys.

10. Reached under the drum and took the belt off the idler pulley and motor drive pulley.

11. Used the belt to lift and remove the drum through the front opening.

I noticed that the internal vent pipe had become disconnected (which probably caused internal overheating) so I fixed that.

I then removed the wires to the thermostats and tested both for continuity. The limit thermostat was bad. I also saw that the belt was becoming cracked. I ordered a new limit thermostat and belt.

Installation of the new parts was a snap. I removed the old thermostat with the nut driver and replaced with the new one and pushed the wire connectors back on. Replacing the belt was a little trickier but not a problem. (Be sure to route the new belt correctly as noted on Step 9 and place ribbed surface next to drum.)

I closed up the dryer by reversing the opening steps.

Dryer drum stopprd

Basically, Followed the instructions in the Video for Belt replacement. I found out however that the Tensioner was also broken aand needed replacement, and this required the snap wring pliers. also spindle on motor was stripped and had to use "lockTite" to repair that. Overall was far better "doining it myself" than paying for repai service which would have cost several hundred $ in costs. This increased my confidence level to know that as long as parts are available I will always be able to repair this appliance!

String from a hoodie somehow got inside the dryer and destroyed one of the guide wheels

I had to disassemble the whole thing and figure out what I needed. The new guide wheel and belt installed easy. The only hard part was trying to figure out how the dryer went back together.

I'm work in biomed/maintenance field, so I'm used to taking things apart. This was the 1st time I've tackled somthing like this. If your reasonably handy you could do this too. It only cost $30 to repair which was much less than buying a refurbed one.

Drum would slip and at times not spin

You have to take apart the whole dryer to get to the belt.Nut driver with cordless drill make it go so much faster.Unplug dry, take apart dryer and replace with olr belt with new belt.Takes about 20 minutes to do.plus I took off the two guide wheels on back of cabinet and greased everything.Works like brand new.I had a repair guy tell me I needed a new motor.If you can spin the drum by hand replace belt first.

Drum would not turn with moderate to heavy load.

Removed the front dryer panels (lower & upper), front drum support and drum. This gave me easy access to the idler pulley and tension spring. I also took the opportunity to vacuum all of the lent that had collected over the years. After installing the new parts and aligning the belt, I reassembled the panels, plug it in and it worked like a champ! Locating the parts on your website was fast and easy. I appreciate it and thank you.

High pitched noise

I removed the top and the front of the dryer and I had done before, so that was not to bad, then I moved the drum forward just enough to get it off the rollers but did not remove it all the way in order to keep the belt in place. I removed the snap ring holding the wheels in place and put the new ones on. I put the dryer back together, unfortunately it did not fix the problem. I am now waiting on the idler lever arm to replace it. Hopefully, that will be the key!
