Whether they're keeping your food refrigerated, cooking your meals or cleaning your clothes, there are certain appliances that have become essential to the conveniences of modern life. That's why companies like Westinghouse put so much effort into producing quality appliances that will last a long time. However, regardless of how well designed an appliance may be, it's still a machine composed of a bunch of small moving parts that can break down and wear out. Belts snap, gears grind, coolant leaks and coils crack, meaning you need to figure out what's wrong and how to fix it.
If you turn on your dryer and the motor runs but the drum doesn't spin, then it could mean you have a broken drum belt. Open up the machine and check the belt. If it's snapped, then you'll need to replace it. First, wrap the belt around the drum. Next, you'll need to run the belt through the idler pulley and around the motor pulley. The idler pulley is the arm with a pulley on the outside end and it’s fastened in place with a spring. The idler pulley tensions the belt on the drum and the motor pulley.
