The front of the dryer can be removed by gently prying the top up at front corners. Lift lid 1/2 way up and support. There will be two screws (hex head) on inside outer upper corners, remove them. Some dryers have two srews on the outside bottom corners of the front panel. the front will lift up and out. The drum will fall free from front felt guides. Looking from the front below the drum, you will see the belt tension pulley near the floor, this may need to be removed or just pulled back to free the belt, from the motor pulley. Remove and reinstall new belt (flat side towards drum). Align belt on center of drum. Reinstall tension pulley if removed. Open door and support drum as you install front panel. Be sure the front panel rest on lower supports and drum rest on felt pads. Reinsert screws in front lower and upper corners, lower lid, align top with guides and snap down. discard old belt. Your done.

You can buy replacement belts at Sears, most big-box home improvement places or an appliance parts store. Replacing it is not very difficult for most people who can handle a screwdriver and have some patience. The process is too long to describe here, and pictures are better. Here's a site which will guide you through it:

Don't let it scare you! It's not bad at all. Good luck on your repair!

The top must be lifted and the front must come off so you can slide the new belt on. When that is done in the back you will see a panel to be removed. Slide the belt back and install it around the pulley on the motor. When you are done put it back together and wala. I hope this helped you out.

Timing belt broke on my 1994 Diamante would there be damage to engine


Well the 3.0 engine is not supposed to be an interference engine.
But it is possible some valve damage occured when the belt broke at that speed.
You won't know for sure until the new belt is installed.

How do I replace the alternator belt on a 1984 Pontiac Fiero 2M4 SE and get it passed the other belt?


You will have to remove all belts to install the new one. This would be a great time to replace all the belts as the others are probably just as old as the one that broke.

Timming belt broke from water pump broke while driving car put new water pump on n timming belt but car doesnt start right plus shakes doesnt sound right 2001 neon dodge


Sounds like timing belt not on correctly. Check timing marks are aligned correctly when installing timing belt. This vehicle should have 2-3 marks to be aligned when installing belt.marks should be on cam gear/ crankshaft gear and intermediate shaft if engine is equipped with it.

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.
