Either the top pries up or you'll have 2 screws at the very bottom of the front panel from there you can remove the front panel but make sure you disconnect the door switch wires before yanking the front panel away

Thinking of buying a peugeot 307 with 124k, will changing the timing belt make a difference?


If the belt is broken, pass on buying it. Broken timing belt = BIG $$$ repair. If it's running and price is right, w/that many miles get timing belt changed ASAP.

My dryer has been working fine but all of a sudden it comes on but just makes a humming sound no turning


It is probably the belt. A DIY person can do this, look for a broken belt lying at the bottom of the dryer, you may have to tilt it up to see. If you wish to try changing the belt... ask for a clarification and I will followup.

My dryer is heating but the drum is not turning, what is the problem?


What you are describing usually means that the drum belt on your dryer is probably broken
There is a simple way to test for this.
1 remove the clothes from the dryer.
2 while the machine is off put your hand inside the empty drum and turn it. If it is easy to turn, the belt is broken. If it is difficult to turn, the belt is good.
Almost all of the time, it is a broken belt.
The link below has the full procedure for changing the belt.

DRUM NOT MOVING ON WHIRLPOOL ELEC DRYER


the belt is off or broken, changing the belt yourself can be tricky, you must remove the front bulkhead and door/panel assy, then you have to route the belt correctly from th motor to the belt tensioner, you may want to call a tech.

Help Changing Belt on Maytag PYET444AYW dryer


Normally if it is a front loading machine then you need to take the front of the dryer off.
This will expose the drum, roller, etc.
Remove the drum, install new belt on the motor pulley, loop around the idle arm roller, then install on the drum and reinstall the drum, reinstall the front and job complete

Dryer drum won't spin/tumble clothes


Chances are it's a broken belt. If you hear the sound of the motor running and your dryer is heating, there's nothing else but the belt.

Changing the belt yourself is pretty easy if you can use a screwdriver and have a little mechanical ability. The new belt is around $20, and you'll save big if you don't call a service person to do it for you. A good site with a step-by-step illustrated procedure for changing the belt is here. They also sell parts, or you can find the belt locally at any appliance parts store.

Changing belt on my dryer


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.

Kenmore dryer electric doesnt start


It sounds like the dryer drum belt is broken

there is a drive belt that goes all the way around the dryer drum and when you press start the drum starts turning unless teh belt is off or broken

You can change the belt or call and have service technician change it
