My husband replaced the dryer drum belt and now the electric dryer spins counter clockwise. Shouldn't it be spinning clockwise?

DRUM WILL NOT SPIN, BELT IS OK


have you try to rotate the drum when belt is attached or installed, unplug your machine and try to spin it manualy at the back opening where you can access the mechanical part

Whirlpool dryer not exhausting air, and the drum is spinning counter-clock wise


Hi,

The first and most important thing you need to do, is to disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet before doing any kind of work on it. Most parts will need to be checked for continuity and the dryer must be disconnected from the wall outlet.
Most of the times the part causing the problem is behind the dryer and you can gain access by removing the back panel.

Squeaks alot when it is drying clothes, my husband replaced the belt, and front felt. what could it be?


Replace the tensioner roller assembly that tensions the belt. also, check the rear drum rollers that the drum rests on for free spinning but no wobble or noises, If loose or wobbly, replace them too.

Electrolux FGX831FS1 dryer drum, only spins one way manually


Check inside the drum to make sure the three screws in a triangle in the rear center are all there, if they fall out the drum goes off center and the motor can no longer drive it.
This model has no rollers, the front of the drum has plastic glides mounted on the front of the drum that ride on teflon impregnated pads that are glued around the door.
The rear is supported by a steel ball screwed to the rear of the drum (the 3 screws that I think are causing your troubles) that rides in a plastic saddle screwed to the rear of the machine.
If the excess drum movement is only up and down you should replace the front glide system.
Good Luck

Kenmore 70 series dryer


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

Shows how it goes. The lower right graphic has the Kenmore 70. There are slots in the bottom of the dryer to lock it in.

If you spin the drum by hand, only spin it counter-clockwise the same way the motor spins it. Mine kept coming off and found it was due to spinning it by hand clockwise. For some reason the belt slips to the side of the tensioner then off the lip... when spun clockwise.
