SOURCE: Timing Belt Tensioner bolt broken off.

if this happened you bent the valves in the engine and the cylinder head must be removed, here are full instructions for a timing belt replacement.

Required tools:
13mm open end wrench 10mm shallow and deep socket 8mm socket long flathead screwdriver 17mm deep socket T50 torx socket 1/4", 3/8ths and 1/2" ratchets and extensions E10 inverted torx sockets 6mm Allen wrench 15mm open end wrench 7mm socket 12mm open end wrench 14mm socket 12mm socket 8mm, 9mm and 10mm Allen head sockets 19mm socket pry bar needle nose pliers
If you are doing this because your timing belt broke you will also need to buy a complete cylinder head, head gasket set, and both idler pulleys. ALL DAEWOO MODELS WILL BREAK THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST VALVES WHEN THE TIMING BELT BREAKS.
Start by removing the air cleaner assembly from the throttle body, remove the air filter and housing jack up the vehicle and remove the wheel, remove the plastic shielding in front of the accessory drive belt assembly, remove the accessory drive belt, place a jack with a block of wood on top underneath the engine oil pan remove the front engine mount, remove the crank shaft pulley ( the 4 Allen head bolts only not the 17mm bolt in the center.) remove the metal plate behind the engine mount bracket on the engine, remove the plastic timing belt cover 3 clips on top 2 10mm bolts on bottom. Rotate the engine until the #1 cyl. is at Top Dead Center on the compression stroke or line up the crankshaft timing mark with the mark on the inner timing belt cover ( notch in cover with notch in pulley) on the camshaft pulleys -- ( intake cam line up the line on the pulley with the line on the inner cover)( exhaust cam line up the arrow on the pulley with the arrow on the inner cover) loosen the 13mm bolt in the belt tensioner and using the Allen wrench rotate the tab until there is slack in the belt. Remove the belt. At this time I would recommend you replace the water pump, both plastic idler pulleys as they tend to overheat and lockup, and the belt tensioner. Make sure all your marks are lined up, you may need a helper to hold the Exhaust Cam in place as it tends to move during belt installation. Put the timing belt underneath the crankshaft pulley, install the belt leaving the intake cam for last and NO BELT SLACK on the right side between the crank and the exhaust cam. Once the belt is installed rotate the crankshaft over 2 revolutions and make sure is rotates freely, and your timing marks are aligned perfectly if not the engine will not run properly, tension the belt as needed. Installation is the same as removal.

To clarify, on the DOHC engine, the intake cam gear has a line on it, and the exhaust cam gear has an arrow on it. These should be lined up with the corresponding line and arrow on the VALVE COVER, pointing straight up. I just went through this process over the weekend, and spent quite a bit of time looking for these marking as I had removed the valve cover. Once I found them, it was plain and simple.
In addition, be sure to not over tighten the belt when reinstalling. The tensioner has markings on it for "old" and "new". DO NOT adjust past "new", as the car will sound like a jet engine, and the belt will not last for very long.
One more item that you may as well replace while you are in there is the cam position sensor if you have not already, as there have been issues with them, and the timing housing has to be opened to get to it

SOURCE: The Belt Tensioner came off of my Whirlpool WED5300SQ0 Dryer

If the belt slipped off, this will cause the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal with no tension on the pulley to hold it in place. To re-install, follow these steps:

1. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H. If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Hi there, There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier. Once installed remove the tape. The dryer now works like a dream. See the attached photo. Good Luck!8e72e75.jpg

Double the belt and slide it between the two arms of the tension pulley. Then slip the belt over the drive motor pulley. The belt will be pushing against the tension pulley from underneath.

Dryer just stopped wont turn


More than likely a broken belt. A fairly easy fix. Disconnect Dryer electric by shutting off the breaker. Then remove the front panel that surrounds the door. There are ususally a couple of screws on the bottom and you have to pot the top. Get a belt off the net or from a appliance dealer. The belt slips around the drum over the motor shaft and on a tension Idler wheel. Pop is back together and you good to go. Try checking You Tube and see if there is a video on dryer belt replacement. Good luck! :)

The belt for the dryer is not in place and the dryer is not longer spinning. how would i fix that? There is also a piece with a wheel on it that i cannot figure out where it goes but looks as though it is...


Look up "Tension Pully & Belt Diagram" on internet for your dryer on google or Dogpile. You should be able to find how to
put the Tension Pully back where it belongs & how to thread the belt through it and back on to the motor drive shaft. Check different sites for the right picture for your dryer. Here's a picture to get you started. Good luck,

Trying to install a dryer belt on a kenmore dryer model 62622101. don't see how ya thread the belt thru the existing bracket


the belt goes through a tensioner which fastenes to the floor in a set of slots. Get the belt through that tensioner then around the motor pulley. Put the drum on the wheels in the back, lift the front (you need a helper) and put the front back on and fasten, replace the top.

Much easier to say it than to do it ... but you got this far, I have faith you can finish the job.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Belt came off tensioner, and tensioner off unit.


Here is the tensioner diagram you need, for most any dryer.

http://www.applianceaid.com/images/belt-config.JPG

First clean and lubricate the axel of the wheel with some spray silicone. Try not to get it on the wheel outer surface.

Then locate the slot in the bottom of the cabinet floor. The wheel should line up with the drive wheel at the end of the motor shaft.

Place the tang of the tensioner in the slot.

Press the wheel wayyy back passing a loop of the belt BELOW the tensioner wheel and loop it over the end of the small drive wheel.

Release tension on the tensioner and the wheel will pull it taught.

Dryer belt replacement


The belt will go thru the tensioner, then the lower part will just go aroune the drum and the top part will ride on the smooth section of that tensioner. If you ask me it is quite cheesy... but it seems to work! good luck.

My belt came off my dryer, Help!


You should have a "tension pulley" that the belt goes around somewhere in the belt track. Usually a "wheel or pulley mounted on a spring" which looks like a flat piece if metal. Check to see if it has come out of its positon or the flat spring has broken. You can buy replacements if it has. Simply reposition the belt and push the tension pulley in such a way as to engage the belt correctly. That should fix it.
