The belt attached to the blower wheel on my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer has come off. How do I reattach it?


Unplug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer from the electrical outlet before installing a new belt. Remove the lint filter from underneath the lint filter cover. 2 Unfasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver, setting the screws in a safe place. Slide a putty knife between the dryer top and the cabinet near the front, lifting up on the knife to detach the top from the plastic clips on the cabinet.3 Flip the dryer top back against the wall so it is resting on the rear hinges. Locate the screws on the inside of the upper front panel near the top.4 Unfasten the screws on the inside of the upper front panel with a screwdriver. Lift the panel up off the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet. 5 Unplug the door switch connector from the back of the upper front panel by hand, setting the panel out of the way. Slide the putty knife between the lower front panel and the dryer cabinet, pulling the knife away from the cabinet to detach the panel from the plastic clips on the cabinet.6 Place a couple of wood blocks under the lip of the dryer drum to hold it in place. Locate the idler arm near the motor at the base of the dryer.7 Move the idler arm forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Take the belt off the motor and idler arm pulleys, lifting the drum up and sliding the belt off the drum.8 Install a new belt around the dryer drum, looping it over the idler arm and around the motor pulley. Move the idler arm back into position to add tension to the new belt.9 Remove the wood blocks from underneath the lip of the dryer drum. Plug the door switch connector into the back of the upper front panel by hand.10 Slide the upper front panel over the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet, securing the top of the panel with screws. Fasten the lower front panel to the front of the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips by hand.11 Flip the dryer top back down onto the top of the cabinet, pressing down to secure the top to the plastic clips on the cabinet. Fasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver.12 Slide the lint filter back under the lint filter cover by hand. Plug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer into the electrical outlet.

    How do i get to the inside of the dryer - i need to replace a part in the front and can't figure out how to get the front panel off


    Hello- First, BE SURE the dryer is unplugged, and then be sure again. You will need to release the two retaining clips that attach the top the the front. They are located under the front of the lid a couple inches in from each side. The best tool is a putty knife or something a flat paint scraper. Place the tool between the top of the front panel and the lid and pry up a little bit in order to see the clips, they are about an inch wide. You have to press hard right into in (its like a flat metal spring) and pry up at the same time and the lid should release. Repeat on the other side. They can be a bit tricky but just don't force it too much. Once the clips are released the top hinges towards the back. There should be a wiring harness that goes to the timer and switches and one that goes to the door switch, these have plastic connectors that should separate them as a unit. There is one screw on each edge of the interior of the front panel that holds it to the main dryer cabinet, take these out and pull the front panel forward and up and the panel should separate itself from the cabinet. You have to be careful when you put the front panel back on that it slides in on the bottom retainer clips and that the top of the drum is positioned correctly over the felt on the front panel. Just don't force anything. Hope this helps, best regards.

    How do you get the bottom panel under the door of the dryer off? It looks like there are clips of some sort there, but can't remove or move the clips enough to remove the door? please give step by step...


    Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair works.

    The bottom front panel is secured to bottom of the top front panel by two securing clips. Insert a flat-bladed screwdriver between the top front panel and the bottom front panel as shown then pry the panel out then lift it off the cabinet.

    Install the bottom of the bottom front panel first when reinstalling then push the top back into position until the clips engage.

    How do I replace a dryer belt on Kenmore dryer


    You have to practically completely disassemble the dryer and remove the drum. If you can't figure it out, you should call an expert. Sometimes getting it apart isn't bad, it's putting it all back together that gets you. ;-)

    Dryer turs but it will not heat. how do i take off the front panel. ge model # dvl223gyoww


    you have two clips on the part where the top and front panel meet the clips are about 2 to 3 inches away from each side  just pry those with something like wire cutters (what i like to use) once you pry it open both clips the front panel than is only held by two hook like objects on the bottom which you just have to unhook it by pulling up with the front face  you'll figure it out once you get the first two clips off 
    good luck

    I have a Maytag Neptune dryer that has one of the agitators? that have come loose and am trying to figure out how to get to it to tighten it back up. It's an MDE5500AYW. Thanks


    THE FRONT OF THE DRYER IS REMOVED BY OPENING THE DOOR AND REMOVING THE TWO SCREWS HOLDING THE HINGES TO THE FRONT PANEL. ALSO, REMOVE THE TWO SCREWS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE OPENING. PULL THE FRONT PANEL TOWARD YOU AT THE TOP. IT WILL BE HINGED AT THE BOTTOM. ONCE YOU HAVE IT TILTED TOWARD YOU, PICK IT UP OFF THE BOTTOM HINGES.
    THERE ARE TWO RETAINING CLIPS HOLDING THE TOP DOWN AT THE FRONT CORNERS. THESE CLIPS ARE HELD ON BY A 5/16TH HEX HEAD SCREW. REMOVE THE SCREW AND CLIP AND YOU CAN LIFT THE TOP. IT IS HINGED AT THE BACK AND YOU CAN RAISE IT UP AND BACK OUT OF THE WAY. YOUY NOW HAVE ACCESS TO THE OUTER SIDE OF THE DRUM. ROTATE EACH OF THE BAFFLES TO THE TOP AND TIGHTEN EACH SCREW AS THEY COME TO THE TOP.
