I have a admiral dryer. I replaced the belt on it and the drum tumbler is not turning. Can you please tell me what could be the problem?
ANSWER Frank, There are several things you have to check and ensure that they are installed correctly.Once the belt is installed, make sure the belt is properly routed around the idler and motor pulley, make sure the belt is not twisted or turned, this can cause a "bind" on the drive system. Also ensure the belt is on the flat, center portion of the tumbler If the belt is in one of the reinforncement grooves, theres not enough tension on the belt to drive the drum. It's best to install the belt, and manually turn the tumbler two or three revolutions by hand, then check for the before mentioned checks, then finish the re assembly of the dryer.
