Broken or belt has come off. If can open back and fix or replace. You may need to remove the top. Careful of the heat element, lift out drum and place new belt on motor holding it while you put the drum back keep hold of belt and place around drum replace top and should be ok. Hope this Helps
To access your drive belt, you need to take the front cover off. Unplug the dryer first. There should be 2 screws on the front cover in the lower front area. Remove the screws and tip the bottom of the front panel forward until the top clips are frree of the top panel. Be careful there is a door safety switch wired. You can disconnect the wire and set the front panel aside. Look under the drum in the dryer and you'll be able to tell if the belt is broken or loose. IF you need to replace it, you'll need to take the 4 screws that hold the front drum support/duct assembly loose from the dryer case. Once these are removed you can pull out the whole gray assembly and slide the drum out. The new belt can be purchased online at repairclinic.com if you want. To put back in, you can put the belt around the drum and slide it back in. It should have a grooved side and a flat side on the belt. Put the flat side toward the drum. It routes around the motor pulley and a tensioner pulley. It may take a bit to figure out the routing, but the key is to put the belt into the indentation ring on the drum to allow you to get it around the pulley and tensioner... if you leave the drum sticking out of the machine about 8 inches, you can reach thru the drum and hook the belt in place, then slide the drum in and pull the belt out of the indentation and onto the larger circumference of the drum. You may have to twist the belt to get the flat side next to the drum. You can then put it all back together... Good luck... be patient and you can do it.
if not able to remove rear panel,you will need to start,like most models,take top cover off and hinge back to wall then remove frt cover including door as a whole assy. lift up drum put new belt on drum ( and position in same area as old belt,it will have marks on drum from where original belt was on drum) then put rest of belt over mtr pulley and then idler pulley, turn drum by hand to align belts and put it back together in reverse order
Take the top panel off by slideing a putty knife about 2 inches in at the front and releasing the tabs. remove screws from top of front panel after top removed. also remove 2 screws from inside of front panel on both sides about 4 inches down screwing back into front panel. pull front off and slip belt through opening. Feed belt around drum and put tension on the idler spring release onto belt. reassemble unit.
I think you must replace the belt and the tensionarm. It MUST be done from the backside of the machine... Remove the backpanel, and the drum, change the tensionarm, and put the drum into the machine again. Put on the new belt, and mount it together again. Be careful for sharp edges! Hope this helps :-)
not really, it may only be a little effort to figure out how the new belt gets wrapped onto the tensioner pulley...the broken one is surely on the floor coiled up under the dryer like a dead snake....don't worry...it's dead.
