I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your dryer. The fan belt may be old or may not have been adjusted properly on original installation. If the blower or motor is not well secured, the belt can become loose or misaligned. Belts may slip because pulley flanges are loose or misaligned. The sheaves on the pulleys are adjustable.

If the belt does not transfer energy efficiently from the motor to the blower, the blower won't turn properly. This will result in decreased airflow through the house, causing poor comfort, high heating costs and perhaps a shortened life expectancy for the heat exchanger.

If the belt is too loose, it will slip. This is often accompanied by a squealing noise. If the belt is too tight, the bearings may wear excessively and the motor may have to work too hard. A motor that is overheating may be the result of a fan belt that's too tight.

Look for cracks in the belt. If you are sure you have shut the power off, you can move the belt around so you can see it all. The tension on the belt should be such that you can push the belt in about one inch, at the halfway point between the pulleys. On some units, the movement is designed to be less than this (as little as one-half inch). I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
