Tumble Dryer Polyvee Drive Belt - 1860 9PHE

If you have a belt in your tumble dryer that has worn, stretched out even snapped, it will not be able to spin the drum in your machine - meaning your clothes could be left damp at the end of the cycle. eSpares has this replacement belt, which could be the answer to getting the drive system back up to speed in your tumble dryer.

The Poly-Vee belt (ribbed belt) looks like a flat belt but has V-shaped ribs along the inside for better friction between the drive system and the belt. eSpares could soon get you back to nice dry clothes again, with your tumble dryer performing at its best, in no time!


  • Type: Poly-vee belt
  • Section: 9PHE
  • Length: 1860mm

Please Note: This belt is a stretch type and can be very tight to stretch over the motor spindle, this is normal.

When fitting this belt, try using a belt fit tool which can be found on our site - ES809986.

Genuine spare part suitable for select models of Hotpoint, Indesit, and Ariston tumble dryers.

    Not easy to fit

    At first it appears as though the belt is too small as there is little extra after wrapping around the drum. However by leaving the drum detached from front panel seal this will allow the drum to drop sufficiently in order to engage the belt with the drive shaft.

    New belts are difficult to fit as they need to be stretched. Follow the video and stretch as much as possible before attempting to fit onto the motor or pulley.

Cant stretch it far enough to get it back on.

  • I used the old belt as recommended in the video. I turned the machine on its side and there were some slots in the bottom panel under the motor. Thread the old belt through the slot, around the new belt (which is on the drum) and back through the slot. Then, by pulling on the old belt, the angle was perfect for getting the new belt round the motor spindle. By Anonymous - - 09 September 2013
  • Use a long screwdriver & use the motor output shaft as a lever point. Put the screwdriver between the belt & motor output shaft & force down & push the screwdriver down at the same time to lever the belt onto the shaft. May take a few goes. but be patient & it can be done. If you have the side panel off the tumble drier the pressure of the belt will cause the drum to disengage from the front panel, but if you position the unit against something or have someone lend a pair of hands this can be overcome. When the belt is on you need to spin the drum manually & aligh the belt by applying a slight pressure with your fingers on the area where the belt is just contacting the drum. If you don't align the belt it will come off the motor output shaft when rotating as it will track. By hotpoint2008 - - 04 March 2010

    It may feel like it won't fit on, but it will it just needs to be stretched a lot. If necessary wedge it on using screwdrivers as leverage. Read through this article -

It is really tight and when I finally manage to get it on, it's right on the outer edge. This is no good as it just comes off again when the drum starts to spin.

  • Once belt is over the drum and body of machine is fixed solid again, remove the nearest screw on the pulley bracket and loosen the other so the pulley pivots on it. Give the belt a god few pulls to stretch a bit. Push pulley towards the drum and put the belt in position over top of pulley wheel. Pull the pulley wheel back into position and push towards the motor so the catch goes into its position. Refasten both screws. Not easy but be patient! By jason symons - cumbria - 13 January 2017
  • get a small pipe and put it through the belt and over the end of the motor end drive and turn the drum the belt will slip on good luck By michael - oldham - 10 January 2014

    With the belt in position around the drum use a long screwdriver to pass through the belt and fix this under the motor spindle. Carefully lever the belt under and onto the spindle and remove the screwdriver. Or order the specific tool Stock Number: ES809986

  • Unplug the dryer from the mains, unscrew and remove the top, use a flat blade screwdriver to lever off and unclip the base fascia, remove all the crosshead screws holding on the two sides, but only remove the RHS panel (ie as seen from the front), then slip on the new belt from the front of the drum, ease it to the back (it's a tight fit) and use a 12" long, sturdy screwdriver to lever it against its own tension, and thus stretch it onto the motor spindle. Re-position the panels, re-fix the screws, re-attach the base fascia and put back the top, re-fastening with its screws. No more than a 10-15 minute job, at the outside.
