This can vary from dryer to dryer, but most are basic, with slight variations of this set-up. The belt goes around the drum and around a pulley on the motor shaft. It then routes thru a tensioning device, usually between the motor pulley and the drum on the bottom. The drum is held in place front and rear by the cabinet itself. You will have to remove the front panel to get the belt around the drum. In order to remove the front panel (door panel) you will have to detach the top. It is usually held in place by a couple of screws in the rear, then you can bump it forward and pull up. You will then notice how the front is attached. Be careful to replace the drum (exactly) as it is or it will not turn properly.

I would like to know the interval change of my timing belt on my Jeep Patriot Sport 2.0 2008


I must presume you have verified that you do indeed have a timing belt and not a timing chain. (I'm reasonably certain you have a belt, I think the 2.4L engine uses a chain.) Your owner's manual should specify the replacement interval, typically 60,000 or more commonly 80,000 miles. If you're coming up on the 80,000 mile mark, change it. If you bought it used and it's over 80,000 and you don't know if it's been changed, then change it. If that's an interference motor, it will destroy itself if the belt breaks. When having the timing belt changed (or doing it yourself), it's a good time to change the water pump (even it it's fine....simply because you have access while changing the belt), all hoses and other belts. It just makes sense to do these other things while you are doing (or having done) the considerable disassembly / interference removal required for the timing belt work. Shop around and get the required parts, take everything to a mechanic you trust or take a couple days off work and do it. I don't know you or your level of expertise, so my apologies if I'm preaching to the choir.

How do i change the timing belt? how do i know if it needs changing?


the belt is changed every 60,000 miles, there really is no way to know other than mileage if it should be replaced, if u are not sure replace the belt, if it fails it can damage the engine

2000 VW 2.0 Beetle - Manual say not to replace timing belt?


General rule on most cars with a timing belt is change somewhere between 80K and 120K. On some cars, failure of timing belt will destory the engine.

If car is only worth $2500, and labor (parts are cheap on this usually) is $1000, if you can't do it yourself, need to decide if you risk it.

Are you willing to throw away the car when the timing belt breaks? Or spend the $1000, and have some other failure that renders the car useless 5000 miles later?

This is really a financial decision you have to make. If engine blows, you may be able to get $500 for it from junkyard, and you still have your $1000 saved from not changing the timing belt.

Squileeng with the belt


I need to know why you changed the power steering pump and the belt. It sounds like you had a problem and replaced the wrong component. You chould change whatever component is locked up behind the pulley and replace the belt. Let me know if this helps.
