Unplug the dryer! My dryer top is hinged in the back, so I just gently pry up the front of the top after unscrewing the lint trap. Then there are two screws near the top of the front panel holding the front panel to the sides. Remove screws, then the front panel lifts up. The drum will drop down. You can now remove the drum since the belt is broken. Check the back rollers, clean the motor, clean out the inside of frame, replace the belt - making sure it is fed through the idler properly, install the drum- working the belt around the drum, making sure the belt is not twisted and in the correct position on the drum. Reinstall the front panel, making sure the drum is seated properly on the back panel and on the front panel, now you can lower the top and have at it. Your dryer may be alittle bit different but a dryer is still a dryer.

My dryer drum will not turn...."how to change your dryer belt"


There are many styles and different models of dryers but the one thing they all have in common is the dryer has a belt that turns the drum.In the procedure below we will show you how to take apart your dryer,change your belt,and show you the correct threading of your belt. Here is a typical Kenmore dryer idler pulley(it has a plastic wheel on it) motor/pulley (the pulley is attached to the backside of the motor) and the belt configuration.Note the picture below.

Each different model dryer also has a different lint trap location. This location will have a bearing on how your dryer is taken apart and how to change your belt.

Note the location of your lint trap and choose the correct video on how to take your dryer apart. There are two different locations,on top,and in the door.

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.
