Kenmore Dryer #110.60842990

Whatta fun website. Thank you so much, all you Appliance Mavens.

So my poor Old Dad (79 1/2 years old) comes by last night and takes my dryer all apart because it heats up and it hums beautifully, but the drum doesn't turn (although it does turn manually).

When he lifts the top off, Dad sees the felt at the back of the drum, and thinks: Ah, this is the belt, and it seems just fine, and he puts the dryer all back together. And he is so disappointed because he couldn't help his little girl, and we both think, well, I guess it's time to get a new dryer.

Then this morning, Dad thought, You know, maybe that wasn't the belt. And now he wants to come over and take it all apart again. (And confidentially, it causes him some aches and pains to do so.)

Is there a picture available somewhere showing an intact  belt from the top, so Dad will know what to expect?

Thanks for everything. I now know that my dryer is made by Whirlpool! This really is appliance enlightenment. Thank you so much again! Just a lovely thing for you to do.

If it hums and does heat, the belt is broken, he just saw the good part lying on top of the drum or the felt seal, like you said, need to remove the front of the dryer to see the rest of the broken belt.

I printed all the pictures out and will follow all your directions to a T.

Oh, my word! My Dad is going to be so impressed with your fabulous website!   And if you also should happen know how to keep the generator from draining the battery in his 1948 Dodge, he'll be on Cloud Nine!

Thanks again!

disconnecting a battery lead when vehicle is not in use does wonders for battery drain!!!
