Q:

Whirlpool washer #LEQ9508KQ0z: replacing belt #341241that came with instructions which are not clear when it comes to the idler pully bracet, there is not one

A:

Instructions are very important to have at all times especially when replacing parts. I was going over your model number and it appears to be incorrect. A suggestion I have is to go over model number once again and add model number to this thread. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question.

You have stated that this is a washer but I think you meant dryer. I should be able to help you replace the belt on your dryer. First, you need to unplug the dryer and put on a pair of gloves. The inside metal parts of the dryer can be sharp. Then follow the steps below.

  • Remove the lint screen.
  • Remove the two screws in the top under the screen.
  • Pull the top forward to clear the two clips along the front. Then lift the top.
  • Remove the two screws securing the front panel.
  • Unplug the door switch harness and remove the front panel.
  • Lift the drum out of the cabinet and clean the inside of the cabinet with a vacuum.
  • Place a few drops of light oil on the roller shafts before reassembly.

I have also added a few images below, showing the steps for replacing the belt.

If you run into problems, please reply below and I get right back to you.

Yes, this solution worked for the belt on a different dryer model, LGR5848EQ5. Thank you for the tips to wear gloves and regarding vacuuming and the oil (taking advantage of having the dryer taken apart), since this went beyond what was in the instructions in the images. For the screws securing the cabinet front I found it fit a 5/16� socket wrench. Regarding disconnecting the door switch connector from the harness connector, since I had found before (when replacing the door switch on a different dryer) that I could not disconnect the connectors without breaking the connectors, instead of disconnecting it I just temporarily popped out two of the plastic pieces that secure the wires to sides of the dryer so that once I had the door switch removed I could place the wires and switch along the rear part of the dryer out of the way while working on the drum and belt. If you happen to see this comment, I wondered if for future reference if there is a tool for disconnecting the door switch connector from the harness connector--something to pry the plastic tabs open--like the opposite of a crimper.

To disconnect the door switch you need to use a small pocket screwdriver. Slide the screwdriver into the connector just above the lock. Some switch harnesses have them on both sides. Once the screwdriver is in you can pull the connector apart. I found a video on repair clinic that shows how to replace the door lock. Please click on the link below and scroll to the bottom of the page to view the video. I hope this is helpful.

I am glad you have the extended warranty. We have a process for ordering engines that requires the service technician to verify the problem. Then he will call the tech line to see what is available. If the engine is available, it will be ordered and sent to your house. I know it seems over board but due to the cost of engines and shipping, we have to do it this way.
