Question about Dryers
First, unplug the dryer. Live voltages are still present inside the unit even with the dryer turned off. Then, follow these steps:
1. Remove the lower panel under the door. The screws are located under the bottom edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then slide off.
2. Open the door and remove the lint screen. Close the door. (The reason for this is because you cannot remove the blower fan housing with the lint screen in place.)
3. Remove the blower fan housing. There should be three to four screws with a retaining clip on the bottom holding it in place. Loosen all the screws. With the screws removed, pull the housing towards you from the top first, while releasing the retaining clip. The whole unit should come out. NOTE: Some blower fan housings have a ground wire attached. Make sure you disconnect the wire if this is the case.
4. With the blower fan housing removed, you should have full access to the belt tension pulley on the right hand side next to the heating element.
Is there a reason why you need access to the belt tension pulley? If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
