Their is no back cover on a Crosley dryer. You must work from the front. You start by removing the power. Use a standard putty knife to press against spring clips which hold the top down to the front panel.
how do you take the back cover off? - 0c0a1bb.jpgOnce the top is flipped up you can remove the 2 screws holding the front panel on.
Once you get that out your way you can remove the drum and clean out the lint from the dryer. The heater is in the rear. The limit is mounted on top of the heater, it will shut down the heater at 250 f. the fuse is mounted on the side of the heater and will BLOW if the temp exceeds 300f. The main problem on these dryers is the plastic blower wheel which will get loose from the heat an make it take longer for the clothes to dry. Much longer. Also a ball of lint will get into the filter housing. The glides and rolers need to be inspected before you reasemble the dryer. It is reccomended you use temp resistant zoomspout oil to lube the wheels and idler. This is a well builtsimple design that is well worth repairing.

Dry Stop Working after My son put super wet towels in the dryer. Dryers display will turn on, but will not start.


is it a Bosch dryer, if it is then the belt break switch tripped:


To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

Dryer wont tumble the belt has come off and also the spring system, ho can this be fixed?


Follow the bellow steps in order to replace the belt:

  1. Safety first! Unplug the machine from the wall-socket and make sure the machine has been idle long enough so that the heater elements, etc. have cooled.
  2. 180px-p3090017.jpg magnify-clip.pngTop cover removalRemove the top cover of the machine by undoing the 2 bolts at the back of the top panel.
  3. 180px-p3090016.jpg magnify-clip.pngTop cover removedYou should now be able to see if the belt is broken or not. It should be wrapped around the back of the drum. In this picture, you can see it has snapped and is loose on the drum.
  4. 180px-p3090047.jpg magnify-clip.pngRemove plastic coverRemove the plastic cover at the bottom rear of the machine and take off the black belt going from the red pulley to the white pulley (this turns the fan).
  5. 180px-p3090019.jpg magnify-clip.pngAir-flow coverAt the back of the machine, undo the 5 or 6 bolts securing the air-flow cover...
  6. 180px-p3090020.jpg magnify-clip.pngAir-flow cover removed...revealing the drum securing e-ring and washers.
  7. Remove these and keep them in a safe place for now. 180px-p3090023.jpg magnify-clip.pnge-ring & washers
  8. 180px-p3090034.jpg magnify-clip.pngdrum and back panelThe drum is no longer holding in the back panel of the machine.
  9. 180px-p3090037.jpg magnify-clip.pngBack PanelUsing a 7mm socket wrench, remove the screws holding in the back panel of the machine. Take care to support the panel (and the drum) as the screws are removed. A second pair of hands is useful here!
  10. 180px-p3090025.jpg magnify-clip.pngBack panel removalTaking care to support the drum, move the back panel away from the machine slightly. Do not move more than a few inches yet!
