Default replacing roper dryer belt
Model Number: REX3615EW0   Brand: Roper   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


since finding out that my roper dryer belt has broken, i have been able to dismantle the cabinet in a orderly fashion, removed the old belt and can somewhat simulate the reassembly of my unit. Oh yea, have also purchased a replacement belt!

i need help/instruction on how to make the belt fit. the one i bought is dryer drum belt#Part number: 341241

Part number: 341241
. this belt seems a few inches too large. there is about a 2-3 inches of slack when i place it around the drum and run it around the motor pulley. also i'm not seeing a way to affix the idler pulley properly to create enough tension in the belt to turn the drum. when i removed the drum the idler seemed to be sitting on the floor of the cabinet. where/how does this attach? is there somewhere i can go to see a diagram?

...can anyone help??? it is time to wash again!!!

Diagram should be on the belt package if it was a FSP from Whirlpool. Go to WHIRLPOOL Whirlpool Dryer Belt, part number: AP2946843 for info.

Richard,

You can find all diagrams in one of our previous posts: Dryer Belt Diagrams

If you need more specific advice then post the complete model number of the dryer.

Gene.

I just went to the link and it worked for me so it must be something to do with your computer or internet hookup.

Default Odd Roper idler arm assembly?

Some Roper dryers, such as Model RES7646KQ2, have an idler arm that was designed without a pulley wheel. It's part #53 on the Roper parts diagram for this machine. There is a curved low-friction pad that the belt slides over (where the wheel usually is) that must have been someone's bright cost-saving idea. Even the manufacturer now recommends that this misbegotten part be replaced with a more typical idler pulley.

However, if you want to keep it, you can use the common Whirlpool/Roper belt #Part number: 341241

Part number: 341241
. To install it, position the idler arm similar to Gene's illustration, and place the new belt around the drum according to the standard instructions. It may help to temporarily tape the belt to the drum once you get it in position, as long as you remember to remove the tape later.

Make a small flat loop in the belt by pressing its sides together, and pass the loop through the rectangular opening in the idler arm. Pull the loop around and over the motor pulley, and make sure it is seated on that pulley. The smooth side of the belt should now be riding against the smooth surface of the low-friction pad at the end of the idler arm, and there should be good tension on the motor pulley and the dryer drum.

I haven't seen an installation diagram that shows this type of idler arm, and there seem to be lots of unanswered queries regarding these machines. If you have one, hope this helps.
