Hello mcbeanga,
Please find a link to an exploded view f your dryer http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
In many cases ( and I am not all that familiar with your figidaire model) belt replacement can be handled by removing the front and top panel. The exploded view may help a bit. Once you have the front removed, pay particular attention or take a digital picture if you have a camera handy) of the path that the belt takes around the pulley system and tensioner. Hope this helps you,,,
Regards,
Rick

Replace belt on maytag dryer lde8824ace


If it is a model where the belt goes around the drum rather than a separate pulley the drier must be dismantled far enough to allow the belt to be freed from the drum.
Belts need to be replaced so infrequently manufacturers make little provision for in-service replacement and generally the drier must be taken back to the stage in production where the belt was originally fitted.

This can be a rather extensive process with many models and in the absence of dedicated model information we often must resort to simply keep removing screws until the thing falls apart. By the time a belt needs replacing the drum bearings and/or seals are often generally in need of attention in addition that the extra work, though inconvenient and dispiriting, is rarely wasted.

Model 5030D


Instructions

1

Unplug the electrical cord of the dryer from the electrical outlet before attempting to fit a new belt on the dryer.
2

Remove the lint screen from under the lint screen cover and locate the screws that are underneath the cover.


Unfasten the screws with a screwdriver and remove them from the lint filter slot, setting the screws aside.
4

Place a putty knife between the top and the cabinet on both sides of the dryer near the front, lifting up to dislodge the lid from the plastic clips that hold the top down.
5

Flip the top back toward the back of the dryer and let it rest against the back wall.
6

Locate the front kick panel and slide the putty knife just behind both sides of the panel, pulling forward to unfasten the panel from the plastic clips. Move the panel out of the way.
7

Locate the screws that hold the front panel on the dryer cabinet at the top on the inside of the cabinet. Remove the screws using a screwdriver.
8

Unfasten the electrical wire connector by hand, pulling it straight out from the back of the front panel. Move the panel out of the way.
9

Place a couple of wood blocks under the front of the dryer drum to support it while you are removing the old belt. The drum is the cylinder that holds the clothes as they are drying, located just behind the front panels.
10

Push the idler arm forward just a bit to relieve the tension on the belt, and slide the belt off the idler and motor pulleys. The idler arm is located next to the motor near the back of the dryer and has a pulley on a metal arm with a tension spring attached to it.
11

Lift the drum up off the blocks just a bit, slide the old belt off of the drum, and take it out of the dryer cabinet.
12

Hold the drum up just enough to slide the new dryer belt around the drum and fit the belt into the V-slot in the center of the drum, laying the remainder of the belt on the bottom of the cabinet near the idler pulley so you can access it easily.
13

Loop the end of the belt around the idler pulley and over the motor pulley, pushing back on the idler pulley to release the tension on the belt.
14

Let the idler pulley move back into place and check the alignment on the belt to verify that it is seated properly on the drum and the pulleys.
15

Remove the wood blocks from under the drum when the new belt is installed and attach the front kick panel to the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips.
16

Place the front panel over the kick panel and attach the electrical wire connector to the back of the panel by hand, pressing the connector back over the electrical prongs on the back of the panel.
17

Attach the screws at the top of the front panel on the inside of the cabinet with a screwdriver. Lower the top of the dryer back down over the cabinet.
18

Press the top of the dryer down over the plastic clips until the lid is secure and fasten the screws on the inside of the lint filter cover.
19

Slide the lint filter into the lint filter slot and plug the electrical cord of the dryer into the electrical outlet.

GE model DQSR483EE1WW. This is what I know so far: the switch on the door works so it shouldnt be that safety, it is getting power because the light work and the timer at least buzzes like its working,...


Try looking for a broken belt. (electrical interlock prevents starting with broken belt) Disconnect power, open door, remove two phillips screws which go from top of door opening into dryer top. Swing top up and back. If belt not present going around drum, that's your problem. Remove one screw from side panel to front panel on each side (near top) and lift front panel forward and off the bottom pegs. Set the front panel to the side (leaving door switch wires attached) so you can slip new belt around drum. Reach under drum to put belt WE12M29 around drive pulley and around tensioning pulley. (grooved side of belt touches drum) Put front back on dryer and manually rotate drum a couple revolutions to make sure belt does not come off before closing up top and reconnecting power.

Replacement of belt on dryer


Here's how to replace a belt on an GE Profile DPSE810EG4 electric dryer. There may be some minor variation for other electric GE dryers, but it shouldn't be too different. DO NOT USE THESE INSTRUCTIONS ON GAS DRYERS AS ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS MAY BE REQUIRED! For the electric DPSE810EG4, you will need a #2 Philips screwdriver, a flashlight, a new belt, and patience. You will also need something very close to the left front of the dryer against which you will lean the front panel. A chair, a washing machine, or a wall all work fine for this purpose.

1) UNPLUG THE DRYER FOR YOUR SAFETY.
2) Pull the dryer away from the wall and disconnect the ducting.
3) Remove the top four screws on the back panel. (These secure the control panel)
4) Open the dryer door and remove the two screws on the top of the door frame. (These secure the top panel.)
5) Pop up the front of the top panel and slide the top panel forward an inch.
6) Unlock control panel by sliding it to the right, then pull it up to detach it from the top panel.
7) Lift off the top panel and set it somewhere
8) Undo the two screws that hold the front panel.
9) Pull up a little on the front lip of the drum while hinging the front panel forwards. On the DPSE810EG4, you can set the drum down on the support member that is underneath it. (On other models you might need to put something under the drum for it to rest on.)
10) Lift the front panel off of the pins that secure its lower end, and then hinge it to the left (be careful not to yank the wires). Lean it up against something.
11) Open the access door on the back. (On the DPSE810EG4 the access door is the exaust duct itself; remove the screw that secures it and slide it out of the dryer.) Set your flashlight inside the dryer aimed so that you can see the motor and the tension pully.
12) Remove the old belt. If it's snapped in half you can just pull it out. Otherwise, reach in through the back access door with your left arm and pull it off the motor, then come around front, lift up the front of the drum a little and slide the belt off the drum.
13) Reach in through the back access door with a cloth and remove any grease blobs on back of the tension pulley axle. (This way you won't accidentally get grease on the belt during the difficult step which comes next!)
13) Install the new belt. Lift up the front of the drum a little and slide the new belt onto it (the side with the parallel grooves should be touching the drum). Reach into the back access door with your left arm. Grab the belt and pull it around the right side of the plastic tension pulley and then pull it down around the metal motor pulley. You're less likely to get your fingers stuck if you grasp the belt from the front. (The side of the belt without the parallel groves should be in contact with the tension pulley. The side of the belt with the parallel grooves should be in contact with the motor pulley.)
14) Replace the front panel. Set it down on the pins, then hinge it forward while pulling up on the front lip of the drum. Secure the two screws.
15) Make sure the drum turns OK. (If it's fairly difficult to turn, you may wish to try removing the front panel and then try putting it back so that the drum sits inside the felt strip semicircle rather than compressing it. A drum that doesn't turn well will stress the motor and cause it to pause mid-cycle.)
16) Replace the top panel. Put it on top of the dryer, insert the control panel tabs into it, and lock them by sliding the control panel to the left. Slide the top panel back and pop it down in the front. Secure the front with the two long screws and secure the control panel with the four short screws.
17) Replace the rear access door / exhaust duct. Double check that you didn't leave anything inside (including your flashlight). Slide the exhaust duct back into the dryer and secure the screw that holds it.
18) Re-attach the rest of the ducting and move the dryer back into position.
19) Plug it in and make sure it works.

Kenmore dryer


It is very much easier to replace the belt from the front, than the back, the cabinet disassembles from the front, and the mechanism remians attached to the rear plate and cabinet floor.
  • pull lint filter out
  • remove 2 screws from under lint filter
  • with putty knife or other blunt blade, release clips at front corners of cabinet top
  • tilt up cabinet top
  • remove 1screw 1/3 way down each side of front of cabinet.
  • lift off cabinet front
  • drum, motor, tensioner, are all exposed

  • lift drum out forward
  • check rollers, drum felts, nylon glide bearings for wear
    (worn bearing surfaces are the most common cause of belt breakage and you dont want to do it again next month)
  • reinstall tensioner in slots in cabinet floor, reinstall tensioner spring between tensioner and cabinet floor
    (Once the cabinet is open the tensioner mounts are easily visible)
  • loop belt around drum at the wear marks of the prior belt
  • reinstall drum on unworn bearing rollers etc
  • loop belt around motor pulley
  • pull tensioner hard against spring to end of travel
  • loop belt around tensioner
  • relax tensioner
  • spin drum by hand to ensure belt isnt going to jump off
reinstall cabinet in reverse order
~15 MINUTES, but I do 3-4 per day

GE Gas Dryer Replace the belt Model # DDG8280G


Usually there are one or two panel in the front that are held by some screws. Once removed the top panel is usually attached to the front panel and you can get a screwdriver and release the plastic push in retainers. Prop the top up and the drum is exposed. The belt usually goes around the drum down to a drive pulley on the bottom of the machine. You will need to route the belt around the drum in the front or back to get it routed correctly.
