To replace the belt you need to get the front off. Open the door and get the scews of that hold down the top.
get the screws off that hold the front and get that out yer way. check the slides and rear bearing for wear. then slide the belt on the drum. Put back the idler using the rear hatch. Replace the front, turn the beast and make sure it is not binding. Check connections Hit the start button.

How do i oil the belts? The dryer squeaks every time its turned on?


You don't oil the belts on a dryer. This will cause the belt to slip on the motor shaft and/or drum. Oil permiated into the metal of the dryer drum can ruin it causing any replacement belt to slip as well.

If the dryer is squealing, you probably need to lubricate the idler pulley wheel at the axle point (also known as a tension pulley). If this is a GE model they usually have drum slides and a drum bearing that support the front of the dryer drum as well. When they wear down, they begin to make noise. The drum slides are made of teflon and not only help support the drum, but ensures it turns smoothy. You may need to replace both the drum slides and the drum bearing.

If the model number is correct, the part numbers are as follows:

Drum Bearing - WE3M26
Drum Slide - WE1M481 (Blue), WE1M333 (White)

Replacement parts (if required) can be found at the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average cost of these components varies, so shop and compare. The first three websites I listed have helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different from the one you listed this question under, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Electric dryer - Replace timer ? GE DDE7206MCLWH


Hi,
Here is the best way I have found to get replacement parts.

You can find parts for your unit by doing a search for “appliance parts”.
Once you get the results of the search, pick a site and when it comes up it will usually ask for the model number of your unit.
Enter your model number and you will then get a page with exploded views and a parts menu.
Find the part you need and then order it.
Check a few different sites to be sure that you are getting the best pricing.
Most sites can have the part to you in a couple of days.


I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

You can find an exploded view at Sears Parts Direct, as well as get P/N's for the parts needed. I suspect the roller assembly came apart which caused the belt to fail.

You will need your Model number to locate the exploded view. If you can not figure out the routing from that, then order the service manual from Sears. It will show the routing and describe how to assemble and test most all aspects of the appliance.

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!
