Question about Hotpoint Dryers
Unplug unit . Check to be sure you have 240 Volts at wall outlet.
Open the door and look along the front upper edge of the dryer along the front edge. There will be 4 screws going into the top. Remove them and lift the top.
Near the floor at the front of the dryer about 1 inch in and 4 inches off the floor there will be a 5/16" hex head screw on each side that is black like the toekick. Loosen each about 3 turns but do not remove them. Leaning against the front of the dryer, Look down inside the open top dryer from above on each left and right edge there will be a 5/16" hex head screw holding the front assembly to the case of the dryer. Remove 1 on each side.
The dryer front can now be pulled toward toy about 3 inches at the top and then lifted off the lower screws and swung away to the right from the case. Be careful not to strain any wires connected between the case and the front. Place the belt around the drum with the ribs of the belt facing the drum and hang the remainder of the belt into the lower part of the dryer.
Reverse the process of the above three paragraphs to reassemble what you have done.
Pull the dryer out enough to get behind it. there is a lower black panel to be removed by taking out all the 5/16" screws around the edge. Swing the panel aside and look into it. You will see the motor to the right and the loose part of the belt hanging somewhere in the middle.
Place the belt around the motor and idler pulley so that the ribbed side of the belt goes in the grooves on the motor pulley and the flat side runs around the idler pulley, according to the GE chart on this image.
Turn the drum by hand a few times so that the belt aligns with the pulleys and is not twisted at any point.. Reinstall the rear panel again and you are finished.
