Hi, There are no adjustments. Make sure the pulley on the idler and the drive pulley are tirning freely. It is possible the transmission is locked up and the belt will not turn properly.
If all the pulleys are free, start the washer in the spin cycle while watching the drive pulley to see if it turns.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

You should be able to see the belt if you pull the machine out and tip it backwards against the wall. You will have to remove the dryer first. The problem will be WHY the belt is slipping?

Google

make model spare parts

and you should see schematics in the images tab of Google.

My dryer was smoking.... i unpluged it, can you give me a possible reason why? it is about 3 years old and is a stackable heavy duty fridedare


I am assuming it was smoking while it was running. I am guessing you need to open the back and remove the lint build up. This is a common cause of fires, because it is by the heating filiment and catches fire when running if not kept clean.

The back can usually be removed by pulling the dryer away from the wall and unscrewing six to eight screws. When you open the back, you will see the bottom of the heating element. (the rest is enclosed) The lint tends to collect near the opening of this area. Make sure you have the dryer unplugged. It could get nasty if it is not unplugged before you start messing around.

If it is making a noise while smoking, the problem could be the belt is slipping while the basket is rotating.

Good luck!

Stackable washer/dryer


hi..
When your dryer drum isn’t turning anymore, it’s usually a broken belt. Tearing the dryer apart is usually straight-forward enough but stringing the new belt on the motor and idler pulley can be tricky. The Complete Encyclopedia of Dryer Belt Configurations shows the belt configurations for almost every dryer brand you can think of.

this will fix ur problem..
thank u rate me

Washer started smoking


You might have overloaded the machine and the belt will smoke;the machine will still work,the items still might be wet due to the fact the machine couldn't spin fast enough.
