Remove the piece of angle iron from the top back of the LG DLE2514 and slide the top back. This exposes the screws holding the control panel on.
The control panel is held on by two screws, but they are at an ackward angle. The pannel has plastic tabs, when disengaged the panel pulls up.
There should be enough cable to set the pannel on top of the machine without disconecting anything.
Taking off the front pannel is easy at this point. Under the control pannel are four screws holding the front on. The Door has two screw holding it on and two alternates on the other side. The last two screws are at the bottom of the door opening.

I am not familiar with this machine but most dryers have to have the front removed so that you can slip the belt over the drum. I would imagine they have the screws hidden pretty well. Perhaps their is a removable front panel. Some have a few screws on top then you raise the controlpanel exposing the front screws. Just a guess.

Simpson Maxidry Tumble dryer (Cloths dryer) How


Hi there, There is a switch at the bottom of the dryer. It has a groove for the spring to fit around. Then the spring goes through the metal tag with the holes in the pulley. The pulleys 2 prongs then fits into the slot near the motor. The belt goes through the pulley and around the motor wheel. When fitting the drum, tape the belt at three points on the drum with the machine door facing down making installation easier. Once installed remove the tape. The dryer now works like a dream. See the attached photo. Good Luck!8e72e75.jpg

It is a long, narrow belt that runs from the motor underneath up and around the drum. You should be able to find an exploded view at www.appliancepartspros.com as long as you have the complete model number. Good luck.

I Have A Kenwood KTV1W Tumble drier on which the drive belt has snapped. I have ordered a new one but don't know how to access the drum to fit the new belt and how to put it on the drive motor pulley.


There are 4 posidrive screws in the middle of the back plate of the unit, once these are undone the backplate can be removed leaving the drum and motor pulley open to fit the belt

Try this site and see if they can help you out. I would imagine that you are overseas somewhere, can find anything washer or dryer type for Kenwood here in the states. Let me know if they cant help you, will do a little more looking for you. JIM
