How do you get inside a Neptune Dryer. and then i have to figure out why the dryer is not heating?


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel (which comes apart for testing thermal fuse) to the exhaust duct. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

you have to open back panel of dryer as well as the top. there will be a spring connected to the motor assembly. unlatch it, check your belt to see if it needs to be replaced. if cracked, replace. latch spring and belt should have tension.

I have the model AWZ 7813 and the belt broke. I took the unit apart but need a new belt and the manual to show me how the belt goes on.


If you have seen belts in cars, there is something to remove the slack (spring loaded). Its similar to dryers,, the dryer belt goes around the drum and the motor (obviously). from there, there is a wheel that connects to the base. It is spring loaded and takes the slack off the belt. If YOU took it apart (recently), hold the wheel/spring assembly in your hands as it would be positioned if it were screwed into the chassis. Move the wheel to get an idea what direction the spring pulls.

I hope this helped a little.

the blower wheel should have a clamp on it you can buy this from your local spare parts department if not a small hose clamp will do the trick hope this helps.

How do I replace a dryer belt on Kenmore dryer


You have to practically completely disassemble the dryer and remove the drum. If you can't figure it out, you should call an expert. Sometimes getting it apart isn't bad, it's putting it all back together that gets you. ;-)

Kenmore electric dryer, won't start and clicks by time dry knob


usually the thermal fuse goes and dryer dies part number 3390719 located in front of dryer on top of the blower wheel housing,when you read anything out you have to pull one of the wires off to get correct reading.also on some of the dryers there is a switch on the pulley that will kill the dryer if the belt breaks

Horrible noise and burning smell when dryer is on


Same thing happened to us, the noise is one of your wheel bearings are going bad, (they are just a small piece of plastic rollers) and the smell is your belt. The dryer is dismantled from the front. I figured out how to take my dryer apart from google. Also, you may need some help to pull out the drum wheel and pay attention to how it came out. I ordered parts from repairclinic.com and it was very inexpensive and the parts took 3 days to come to me ( I wouldn't pay for faster shipping).
Good luck, you won't believe how uncomplex your dryer really is.
