I have a GE profile dryer model# DPVH890Ejww upon starting it turns for about 2 seconds then stops turning.I was going to check the belt ,But couldn't even figure how to get the back off and I'm very...


couldn't pull up the model number so if it's a newer model you have to take out the top panel screws in the back,then go to the front and pop off the timer knob and there's a screw there that lets you remove the front control panel and then you can get at the other screws that hold the top on,this isn't an easy dryer to work on,it has a funky belt system in it.if it's an older model open the door and look up at the top panel,you'll see two screws there,remove them and remove the top panel,then look down the sides and you'll see a screw on each side remove them and remove the front panel.hope this helps.i'm going by memory and unplug the dryer before you get into it.

I need to know to route my dryer belt on my GE dbrl33ee2ww dryer as the belt slipped off and I did not see the correct path


Hi Roy, W/D here. I wrote this earlier for another person, but it works just as well twice.

You already have the diagram! (Bear with me).

Make sure that your power is off.


If you look carefully at the drum, you can see where the old belt was running.
Place your new belt in that position.
Now, place the belt over the motor pulley (It is in the same plane as the belt position on the dryer).
Pull the tensioning pulley past the belt, and ease it into place.
Roll the drum several revolutions by hand, just to get the belt tracking completely right.
Put it all back together and you're done!
Best regards, --W/D--

Belt installation


HI, Looking at the idler assembly from the back, move the idler wheel to the left (spring loaded).
Slip the belt on the motor pulley with ribs touching pulley. Now let the idler pulley rest againdt the back side of the belt.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can help further.

Ge dryer


you need to remove the front panel and kickplate (if you have one) This will allow you to detach the front of the top of the dryer and you can prop the top up while you replace the belt around the drum, down to the drive belt. Here's a link for your make and model. It shows an exploded view of the parts of your dryer. http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=dde7100&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0. This can help you figure out what parts you might need and how things go back together. Good luck!
