SOURCE: Kenmore washer dryer combo " Washer drum leans to one side "

If this is a small combo the problem is probably one or more of the suspension springs has become detached. You need to get the washer cabinet off. take the panel between the washer and dryer off. then there are 2 clamps holding the washer top on. they are in rear right and left. Once you get the top off you will be able to take the front of the washer off. At that point you should be able to see the problem under the tub. In most cases you can reinstall the plastic shaft back into the spring by screwing them back in.. This is not easy but can be done.

How do I replace rear drum bearing


On most dryers you can use a screw driver with a piece of cloth so you will not scratch it and pry up the top of the dryer. It will swing up and away or come off. Then feel for screws on the bottom of the dryer. You will need a offset screw driver to undo these or lay dryer on the side. There are also screws on the back. Pull the back away and off. Remove the belt remembering how it was threaded to the motor. Then lift up on the drum and pull out. If it is wore it will come right out. Unbolt the holder on the back of the dryer and the back of the drum. Replace and reassemble.

undo all of front (leave wires attached),,,, undo sides (take screws out of left and right sides approx 10 screws at back),,,,place belt round drum near mark left by old one,,,, lean on front of drum to lower drum to the motor spindle,,,,,,pushing hard down on drum will bend the drum on the inside as it touches the motor housing (don't worry it bends back),,,,,,,you should then have the drum close enough to the spindle to lever the belt over by hand,,,,,pull drum back up,,,,,rotate by hand to let the belt self align,,,,shouldn't come off spindle if you put it on with 3-4 grooves spare,,,,,, do back up (10 screws),,,,put front back on and pull drum onto the lip on the front of the frame, the new belt may be squeaky until it is wore in, Hope this helped Tim

place belt round drum near mark left by old one, lean on front of drum to lower drum to the motor spindle,pushing hard down on drum will bend the drum on the inside as it touches the motor housing (don't worry it bends back),you should then have the drum close enough to the spindle to put the belt over by hand,pull drum back up,rotate by hand to let the belt self align,shouldn't come off spindle if you put it on with 3-4 grooves spare. Hope this helps Tim

Replacement of belt on dryer


Here's how to replace a belt on an GE Profile DPSE810EG4 electric dryer. There may be some minor variation for other electric GE dryers, but it shouldn't be too different. DO NOT USE THESE INSTRUCTIONS ON GAS DRYERS AS ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS MAY BE REQUIRED! For the electric DPSE810EG4, you will need a #2 Philips screwdriver, a flashlight, a new belt, and patience. You will also need something very close to the left front of the dryer against which you will lean the front panel. A chair, a washing machine, or a wall all work fine for this purpose.

1) UNPLUG THE DRYER FOR YOUR SAFETY.
2) Pull the dryer away from the wall and disconnect the ducting.
3) Remove the top four screws on the back panel. (These secure the control panel)
4) Open the dryer door and remove the two screws on the top of the door frame. (These secure the top panel.)
5) Pop up the front of the top panel and slide the top panel forward an inch.
6) Unlock control panel by sliding it to the right, then pull it up to detach it from the top panel.
7) Lift off the top panel and set it somewhere
8) Undo the two screws that hold the front panel.
9) Pull up a little on the front lip of the drum while hinging the front panel forwards. On the DPSE810EG4, you can set the drum down on the support member that is underneath it. (On other models you might need to put something under the drum for it to rest on.)
10) Lift the front panel off of the pins that secure its lower end, and then hinge it to the left (be careful not to yank the wires). Lean it up against something.
11) Open the access door on the back. (On the DPSE810EG4 the access door is the exaust duct itself; remove the screw that secures it and slide it out of the dryer.) Set your flashlight inside the dryer aimed so that you can see the motor and the tension pully.
12) Remove the old belt. If it's snapped in half you can just pull it out. Otherwise, reach in through the back access door with your left arm and pull it off the motor, then come around front, lift up the front of the drum a little and slide the belt off the drum.
13) Reach in through the back access door with a cloth and remove any grease blobs on back of the tension pulley axle. (This way you won't accidentally get grease on the belt during the difficult step which comes next!)
13) Install the new belt. Lift up the front of the drum a little and slide the new belt onto it (the side with the parallel grooves should be touching the drum). Reach into the back access door with your left arm. Grab the belt and pull it around the right side of the plastic tension pulley and then pull it down around the metal motor pulley. You're less likely to get your fingers stuck if you grasp the belt from the front. (The side of the belt without the parallel groves should be in contact with the tension pulley. The side of the belt with the parallel grooves should be in contact with the motor pulley.)
14) Replace the front panel. Set it down on the pins, then hinge it forward while pulling up on the front lip of the drum. Secure the two screws.
15) Make sure the drum turns OK. (If it's fairly difficult to turn, you may wish to try removing the front panel and then try putting it back so that the drum sits inside the felt strip semicircle rather than compressing it. A drum that doesn't turn well will stress the motor and cause it to pause mid-cycle.)
16) Replace the top panel. Put it on top of the dryer, insert the control panel tabs into it, and lock them by sliding the control panel to the left. Slide the top panel back and pop it down in the front. Secure the front with the two long screws and secure the control panel with the four short screws.
17) Replace the rear access door / exhaust duct. Double check that you didn't leave anything inside (including your flashlight). Slide the exhaust duct back into the dryer and secure the screw that holds it.
18) Re-attach the rest of the ducting and move the dryer back into position.
19) Plug it in and make sure it works.

take the door screws off and take the opposite side screws off lift out the door, grab the vertical pieces of the front panel and twist them away from the opening while you pull out, then lean the panel forward about 2 feet and lift the panel up and out, this gives you access to the lint screen housing and the blower wheel and housing and eventually the entire heating element and belt, drum, motor etc. unplug this thing before you work on it !!! it will zap you !!
