Drive Belt

Manufacturer #: 661570V
Manufactured by: Whirlpool

Product Description

This is a single dryer drum belt that measures 93.5 inches. The belt rotates the dryer drum and is a common wear part that can become brittle over time. It can also stretch and change shape, so keep this in mind when comparing your old part to this new replacement part. When this part wears it can cause a thumping noise in your dryer, and that is a typical sign that it needs to be replaced. To access this part, you will need to remove the front panel of your dryer, and the belt will be found looped around the drummer, under the idler pulley wheel, and around the drive pulley. For a successful repair, you will need a pair of needle nose pliers, a Phillips screwdriver, a 1/4-inch nut driver, and a putty knife. Do not forget to disconnect the power to your appliance before you begin.

    I always get my parts from this site never fail. I just watch the video how to take apart the dryer and right away I noticed the belt drum ripped in pieces, once I got the drum out, the pulley was already out of the bracket, just order the pulley and the belt, follow the steps to put everything together. connect the dryer and Magic start working better than before. Thank You. Guys for the help.

    dryer was making loud noise
    This unit is a front loader so the removal of parts is a bit different than what is shown on the video.Unplug the power. You need to remove the top panel, bottom front panel, top front control panel, and the front door. That part is the hardest to maneuver due to its awkward weight. Once all is removed (nutdriver takes out all the screws) and wires disconnected, lift entire drum out. That gives you access to the idler pulley and ring. This also affords you the ability to clean out areas you could not access during normal cleaning. Then replace the belt reconnect it to the ideler pulley after putting drum back in place (this takes 2 people so one can hold drum steady to reconnect the belt) . Then put it all back together. As mentioned, watch the you tube video on this website first, and alter the process depending on if a front or top load dryer. Make sure the dryer is balanced once finished

    Broken Belt
    Repair parts have been discontinued. The belt is still the same as the old one. Your video didn't work on my computer, but another youtube video did. Nothing to it.

    Loud rhythmic clunking noise
    Repaired by watching the great instruction video on this website and following the instructions. We probably didn't need the belt, but thought while everything was out, we might as well replace it. Ordered parts afternoon of 12/26 and arrived by fedex ground on 1/2.

    Dryer belt broke.
    Disassembled the dryer got the old belt with part number on it and ordered a new belt from this site. The web site was very easy to use and the new belt arrived quickly. I put the new belt around the drum and the motor pulley with the spring tensioner and re-assembled the dryer.
