Question about Dryers
Just changed the belt on a Beko DRCS68W and its a real pig! Remove the top panel and loosen all screws on complete back panel having removed circlip holding the drum spline on to the back panel. You will also need to disconnect wires/leads on top right inside panel to give you more space. Once you have done this you should be able to ease away the back panel far enough to get the new belt around the drum and over the drum spline in the middle. Then the tricky bit - getting the belt tensioned on to the motor drive spline. I did this before securing the drum and back panel, which gives a bit more flexibility. I also used about 15ins of 15mm copper pipe to ease the belt down over the motor spline. Hard part was getting the back panel back lined up with the screw holes as the belt tension distorts the casing. Finally hit on the idea of lying the machine on its side so the weight of the drum is pulling away from the motor and helping to line up the screw holes. Two and a half hours later job done! I guess if I ever did another it would be a whole lot easier but still not the type of job I relish!

Can anyone advise, please, how to replace the "Beko Pulley Belt Small Poly-V (285H4EL) Tumble Dryer Jockey Belt 4PHE285" on, specifically, a BEKO DCU7230 dryer?
It appears the motor needs to be removed, somehow, in order to offer the new belt over the spindle?
Thanks, in advance.

I'm going to have to replace mine myself too I'm really nervous that i might actually cause more damage. After taking off the top and the back do i have to disconnect any wires or anything? Or is it a case of pulling the drum back and slipping the belt over the drum? then putting everything back? I am aware that putting the belt on the motor bit at the bottom is going to be difficult but im struggling with how to get the belt over the drum?? my model is beko drcs68s condensor dryer. Any help would be most gratefully appreciated.

I have a Beko washing machine and the front weight around the drum has a split through it. Can this be reapired or do I have to buy a new one?

Very useful, I took top and back cover off, pulled drum back to feed belt around it, put back cover back on, removed inspection cover near motor (bottom right on the back), fed belt onto drive shaft using copper pipe as a lever and working belt down onto spindle (then pull copper pipe off spindle leaving belt in place), then fixed inspection plate and top back on, job done :)

Thanks everyone!!! It only took me 40 mins with your help. I removed top and removed all the back panel screws.Removed power lead. Removed circlip and washer moved back panel away from drum & slid belt around drum. Pushed panel back into position, fitted washer and circlip and all screws around edge of back panel.moved pipes in front of motor out of the way by taping them to side of machine. Then used 18inch length of 15mm copper to slide belt onto spline rotating backwards & forwards moving belt with other hand towards spline. Finally aligned belt by rotating drum. Refitted power lead. Fitted the rest of the screws and tested. Good luck!!

I am not familiar with this particular dryer, but all electric dryers are designed so that the consumer can replace the belt. Open the access door ( the back, the top, or the removable panel at the bottom front) and the belt should be visible; a few minutes of study will show you what you need to do to change it.
