Question about Dryers
Front panel light don't come on, drum light ok, dryer won't start. Could this be the electronic board. Could this be door switch related - if so how would one access the door switch? I removed top but saw that you couldn't get to the switch easily and I couldn't easily remove the cowling under the water tank to gain access. If I supplied poer to the electronics board where the power plug clips on, should the panel lights come on? Any one got a wiring diagram for this unit? Thanks

You have a choice for which side front door should be on this model. There are 4 screws on front door. Take all 4 screws and pull down the front panel. You will see two metal parts each side which holds top panel. Remove two screws and metal parts. Now you can push up the top panel.

remove the lint fiter and remove the two phillips screws then lift the top up
you will find two screws on each side of the inside of the frount panel down about 4 inches , this when removed will allow you to swing the frount arround to gain access to the belt

Catriver was right on the mark. Took a little bit of doing but I was able to fix the problem myself within 30 mins, and saved some money. Many thanks. I'd like to expand Catriver's solution a bit.
I found a layer of lint on the inside bottom of my dryer. With the face off of the dryer, it proved to be a good time to vacuum the lint out and reduce the potential of fire.

You have to remove the front panel first to access the clip that holds the front of the top down. Instructions:
crosstip medium screwdriver
1/4 inch socket
5/15 inch socket
a. Remove the door and opposite side door plugs (crosstip screws)
b. Remove the front panel - this exposes sheet metal bolts (5/16 inch) some with crosstip on left and right of unit. Set panel aside (right side) WITHOUT unplugging wires
c. Unscrew all the exposed bolts.
d. Top bolts left and right secure the unpainted metal hooks which secures the top of dryer. Unscrew these bolts and wiggle the metal retainer hooks off. Lift top and support to create 6 inch gap in the front (top unit hinges in back and has electrical connections - do NOT disconnect wires)
e. Release belt from pulley by reaching left and under drum (this is out of sight)
f. gently lift out drum and belt and set aside

Unplug the dryer, remove the door hinge screws that go into the cabinet and the two screws on the opposite side of the door opening, then the front panel can be removedby starting at the top. Once the front is off, there are two screws, one to each side that hold the top on, remove these and raise the top. You can rotate the drum by hand and the baffles are held on by the screws on the outside of the drum. Reassemble in reverse order.

Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet before servicing the Westinghouse dryer.
Insert the putty knife into the gap above the front panel and below the top panel. Lift the putty knife handle up to unfasten the internal locking clips.
Lift the top panel from the dryer cabinet. Rest the panel on the wall behind the dryer.
Remove the two screws on the top border of the front panel. Lift the front panel straight up to unhook it from the dryer cabinet. Unplug the connector leading into the front panel. Set the front panel aside.
Move the idler pulley arm toward the front of the dryer cabinet to loosen the belt. Remove the belt from the drum and pulleys.
Lift the drum out of the dryer cabinet.
Disconnect the electrical plugs leading into the heating element. Unfasten the screws securing the element to the inside of the cabinet. Lift the element out of the cabinet.
Place the new heating element inside the dryer. Connect the screws holding the element to the cabinet. Plug the electrical connectors into the element.
Reposition the front panel. Plug the door switch connector into its socket on the front panel. Press the panel straight down into the base. Reinstall the screws along the top of the panel.
Lower the top panel onto the dryer. Press down on the panel to lock it into place
