If belt is not broken, then the tensioner is not routed properly. Generally belt comes around drum, then around tensioner pulley then on motor pulley. Tensioner is spring loaded, so you need to pull up on tensioner to get belt around motor. Good luck.

Just remove the screws around the vent tube in the back and you can see the belt tensioner laying there on the floor of the dryer.
Most likely someone turned the drum the wrong direction and the belt came off.
The belt goes through the opening in the tensioner and under the idler pulley and then onto the motor drive pulley. Make sure to have the tensioner mounted into the floor first.
It just slides over into a slot and then over to the other side as tension is put on it.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE OUTER BAND TO HOLD ON THE DOOR BOOT/SEAL. WHAT I HAVE SEEN IS THAT AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHES WAS NOT ALL THE WAY INTO THE WASHER AND IT WAS STARTED, PULLING THE DOOR BOOT INTO THE WASHER. THE ONLY OTHER THING I HAVE NOTICED WITH THIS NEW BREED OF SUPER CAPACITY WASHERS IS THAT THEY LIKE BIGGER LOADS TO HELP BALANCE THEMSELVES. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE THAT IT WAS SO SEVERLY OUT OF BALANCE THAT IT PULLED THE BOOT INTO THE TUB AS THE MAYTAGS OF THAT MODEL LINE WERE KNOWN TO NOT BE THE MOST SENSITIVE TO OUT OF BALANCE CONDITIONS. THERE IS A CONTROL BOARD KIT THAT COMES WITH A MOTION SENSOR NOW FOR THEM AS AN UPGRADE.

The vents have been cleared & I still have a buildup of moisture which won't let the clothes dry.


Most likely tour blower is slipping. It might be tossing out air but not enough. These dryers are notorius for having bad blower wheels.
To get into it kill the power and raise the top using a putty knife to release the top clips then get the front off and inspect the filter housing for lint. Their will be a big ball of lint. Grab the blower wheel and wiggle. If it is loose you will be able to tell.Hear is my crappy phone video:

Whirlpool dryer won't turn on can hear


The switch you speak of is a mechanical switch with electrical contacts. If the spring inside gets rusty, it doesn't turn properly....replace it!

Dryer won't dry clothes


First check and see if your heating element is working by holding down the dryer door switch and turning on the dryer too see if you get a glowing from the rear inside of the drum. If it does glow then check to see if you have a kink in your dryer line or check to see if you have a clogged vent outside the vent to the dryer. Also you may want to try resetting your power to the dryer by unplugging the dryer and turning off and then backb on the breaker to the dryer then plug the dryer back in and see if that works.

Clothes dryer wont turn


Check your belt. I actually heard my belt break, it was running at the time. We ordered the right belt, replaced it & it worked fine. You can find the instructions on how to replace it online. Now I have another problem, it won't start, I think it is the switch connected to the start button.

I have a Kenmore gas dryer Model 74812200. It is no longer heating up. When I turn it on, I hear a clicking sound for about 30 seconds then it goes off. Then about a minute later I hear the clicking sound...


You would not hear the click if the ignitor was bad. It won't click until the flame sensor get heated up by the ignitor. So that tells me the thermal fuse ain't melted. I would say them coils on the gas valve are the problem. themobilian_2943.jpg
