Perform the following steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer before servicing.
2. Open the dryer lint trap and remove the screen.
3. With the lint door open, remove the two screws under the lint screen door. Be carefully not to drop the screws down the ventilation duct.
4. With the screws removed, the top panel should pull towards you slightly than lift up. You may want to use some assistance in holding the top panel up.
5. Unplug the door latch connectors from inside the front panel. Remove any ground wires that may be attached to the front panel.
6. Locate and remove the screws that hold the front panel in place to the side panels. There are two of them (one on each side). Make sure you place your body against the panel as you loosen the screws to prevent it from falling.
7. With the screws removed, grasp the front panel at the top and lift up slightly to remove.

With the front panel out of the way, you should have plenty of access to replace the drive belt. If you require assistance in how to properly route the belt, go to and click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page. On the following page, look for a "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the "Special Features" section. Scroll down until you find Estate. Use diagram H for your dryer.

To reinstall everything follow the above steps in the reverse order. Getting the front panel back in place can take some effort. The panel has two small square holes at the bottom on each side behind the panel. These holes holes need to line up correctly with the small black cleats on the front edge of each side panel in order for it go back into place. Make sure you reconnect all connector plug and ground wires. Do not forget to reinstall the screws under the lint screen door when the top panel is back in place. Once again, do not drop them down inside the vent ducting or you will have to remove the entire back panel to retrieve them. NOTE: Placing some tape over the vent opening will prevent this.

I hope this information is helpful to you. If you still have questions, please let me know.

PS For additional assistance you can, go to for exploded view diagrams for you dryer. This may help you with assembly/disassembly.

2 screws at bottom front, pull out slowly from bottom first. Remove the door switch wiring. Then you will see the rest. Note how the belt rides thru the pulley and onto the motor. Belt # 341241, available for $11.99 at Hope this helps!

Get into drum belt area

Most dryers require the front panel be removed to replace the belt. The belt is a long thin belt the goes completely around the outer part of the clothes drum. Then it needs to be put on the motor pulley properly and the tension pulley. Not something for a novice if you never did one before.

Tub won't turn belt broken ,how do you replace belt?

You can remove the lower panel below the door and see the motor and belt. To replace the belt you need to unscrew the front panel and slip the belt over the front of the drum. Reattach the top front panel with screws and loosen the tension roller from the front bottom access panel. Hook the belt around the motor pulley and tension roller. Tighten the tension roller and turn the drum by hand to make sure there are no restrictions and the belt and motor pulley are turning. It is best to inspect the drum rollers on the bottom of the drum to make sure the rollers have no play in them. If you can wiggle the rollers front to back replace them too. Replace the rest of the panels and check the units operation.

Dryer belt replacement

To replace the belt, you have to take the front off the dryer and lift out the drum. With the new belt, place it around the drum and with the drum in place put the excess belt through the idler pulley or bracket (depending on your model), then around the motor pulley. You push the bracket or idler arm toward the motor to get the "loop" of the belt around the pulley on the motor. Hope this helps! Paul Hoffmanns
