This multi rib belt is an important part in your dryer, it is what helps rotate the drum. The belt attaches to the drum, idler pulley, and motor pulley. As the armature of the motor rotates, the belt begins to move and turns the drum. If you notice the drum of your dryer is not spinning during the dry cycle, but you hear the motor running, your belt may have snapped and it will need to be replaced. This belt features four ribs and three grooves, however it replaces a wide variety of belts including wider styles that had five ribs and four grooves. When installing this part make sure the grooves are facing down, against the drum. This replacement part is 92 1/4 inches in length, and 1/4 inch wide.

Question:

Just replaced the belt not too long ago and they symptoms im experiencing include a loud squeaky sound and long drying times

Mona
Answer:

Hello Mona, we recommend checking your exhaust duct in your home, as this is the most common cause for the long drying time. For the squeaking sound, you should check your drum rollers 349241T and your idler pulley WP691366. Best of luck with this repair!

Drum making noise while turning.

First I disconnected power to dryer. Next step was to lift top of cabinet and support upright. Then I removed door switch and 2 screws that hold front panel on and set front panel aside. Next was to reach under drum by belt tightener and remove drum drive belt from tightener and pulley of drive motor. Then slowly remove drum from cabinet . Once removed, I could remove old glides that were worn out and install the new ones. Before putting everything back together, I gave the cabinet a thorough vacuuming to remove all lint built up inside, checked electrical connections on heating unit and oiled back drum support rollers and belt idler roller. Next just reassembled everything in reverse order as was disassembled. Plugged cord back in and tested unit to make sure everything sounded good before drying any clothes.

Dryer drum belt broken

I opted to remove front, top and back panels. This is best done with dryer laying on it's back so drum remains in position. Hold panels and pieces in place with masking tape (2") You should block up the dryer so you don't damage the gas pipe. I opted to total shop vac out the piece and lubricate the rollers and tension pulley. I made more in change than the belt cost!

Overall an easy repair. Belt came with diagram for easy threading the belt.

Dryer was noisey for about 2 years. Repeated greasing of the wheels only resulted in it squeeling again after 6 months or so

Finally got tired to greasing the wheels only to have to do it again so I sprung for new wheels and shafts. Popped the top open, removed the drum, installed the two new shafts with supplied screws then attached the wheels. Figured I'd change out the original belt while I was at it even though the old one still looked good. It's nice and quiet again, plus it give me a chance to clean it out.

Broken belt

Opened up every panel EXCEPT the front, then discovered how easy that is. Replacement belt was a snap to install. I noticed some plastic collar thing on the driveshaft appeared to have melted. Did not appear to be critical part, so I put it together and tested it out. Seems to work fine. I think the collar is there to prevent the belt from potentially slipping off the driveshaft.

Wish it would have told us that when the front was removed the dryer drum falls.

Had a problem holding drum in place and putting front back on. Got it together and drum wouldn't turn. Had to tear it a part again and belt had turned.

Replacing the dryer drum drive belt

Very difficult for one person, trying to get the belt engaged into the motor pulley and the idler pulley at the same time. Trying to overcome the tension of the heavy spring on the idler was the main problem, while coping with the small working space with the drum in place. Solved all the problems by removing the drum (for the 3rd time) and making a piece of wood to wedge in against the outside wall of the machine to hold back the spring loaded idler. Then slipped the drum back in place and gently slid the belt around the drum. Then reached in under the drum and slipped the wood piece out while making sure the belt remained on the pulleys. If I had the wood idea at the start, it would have been about a half hour job. Good luck, and don't pinch your fingers.

Gas lights then goes out and wont light again untill cooled down.

1st, I have a 50 yr electrical background. Impressive right. Anyway my problem was with a Gas Whirlpool Dryer (2004).
I can’t express enough how important on any dryer to clean the venting system and the exhaust fan as recommended. I usually do but I let it go 2.5 years more than I usually do. So when the dryer was running it was not completely plugged but enough to get things more toasty inside the machine. The Igniter was lighting when the machine was cool and the gas flowed fine then the gas stopped but the igniter still was trying to start the flame again. As soon as the temperature dropped it would start to work again.
I watched a few videos on its repair and figured if it was needed, I might as well order the Gas Valve Coils, new Drum Belt, and Tension Pulley assy. I Unplugged machine, and shut off gas to it. I got my meters out opened the back, pretty easy, make sure to wear gloves SHARP STUFF. All stats and sensors tested well (not Open Circuit). Removed the Motor Cover and it was packed with Lint. ShopVac time. Nice and clean did the whole back while I was at it. Put all covers back on, put back on, gas on, plugged in. Tried machine same issue. Turned off Gas, Unplugged Machine, and Lifted top after removing 2 screws by Lint screen Port being careful not to drop them back into Lint Screen Port. Unplugged door switch connector Removed (2) 5/16” screws holding front on and lifted front off. I shimmed the drum so it would not dangle. Unplugged (2) Gas valve coils and checked for an open, but they checked good. Note: Sometimes this happens when the coils are cold, and they don’t fail until they get warm. Removed and replaced coils, new Drum Belt, and Tension Pulley assembly, vacuumed carefully. Put front back on, Plugged door switch back together, Put Top down and secured with the 2 screws.
It is suggested that you put some cold damp towels or clothes in before testing so the dampness will make the sensors see the proper temperature in the drum. Put the Lint Screen back in, Turned on Gas, Plugged machine back in. Success I Spent $40 and saved $600+. NOT TO MENTION, HAPPY WIFE/ HAPPY LIFE. Good luck and I strongly suggest you watch as many videos as you can on the web. I might mention that prices were the best, but check around if you don’t believe me. Good Luck.
Thank you,
-Larry Burbank, CA

Dryer quit spinning but was still heating so figured belt........

Grown daughter did the repair following instructions on your site........Unplug, take screws out of top by lint filter and with putty knife pry up top panel and lean back. Unplug elec. harness in front corner. A screw on each side of front panel removes that. Get old belt off and then we vaccumed all the lint from under and around drum. Put new belt around drum making sure not twisted and pull pulley as shown to make tight......... would have taken less time but we vaccumed all the lint from under and around the drum. Anyone could do this......

Machine would not agitate properly and noisy dryer

took off fabric softener dispenser. used socket to remove agitator. Cleaned and then replaced the little plastic dog ears...works like brand new! It took 15 minutes or less.

Also repaired noisy dryer. replaced drum rollers, pulley and belt. The job took about an hour and was real simple. However..the dryer was still noisy. Fixed with a prybar to force drum to be tighter. It now sounds like brand new.

The belt needed replaced

Once we realized we needed to take the FRONT off the dryer, not the back all went well. It was an easy fix and the part fix perfectly. Instead of $60 or more for a repairman, we spent less than $20 fixing the dryer.
