  • The first thing to do is make sure that the belt on your dryer is broken, so unscrew the dryer lid and take it off.
  • Check out the dryer drum and the thin rubber belt that surrounds it for wear and tear.
  • If you don’t see the belt, it might have gotten loose and fallen off, so check the bottom of the dryer to see if it’s there.
  • Check on the wall of the dryer or behind the door to see what the model number of your dryer is, type it here and purchase a replacement belt for the type and brand of your unit.
  • Once you have the correct dryer belt for your unit, unscrew the front panel and tilt your unit forward until you can slide the belt around the bottom part of the dryer drum.
  • Reattach the front panel of your dryer back on, then turn the unit to the back and take off the lower panel.
  • Attach the belt to the pulley and motor of the dryer, looping the belt around the pulley first, then attaching to the arm of the motor. Different dryers have different ways of attaching dryer belt, so to find out how yours looks, visit this dryer belt diagram resource.
