Pop the top ... probably 2 screws and spring clips. Remove the front, be careful of the wires attached to the door switch. You will see how it works when you tip the front back toward yourself.

The back sits on two wheels and the front rides on a felt "bearing" around the door.

How to fit belt on Creda Reversair 37643 Tumble dryer


New belt is very tight, so you have to use more strength. Put it on motor and all other on "drum". Spin it easily and slowly but with strength until its done.


Be carefully, use gloves.

Replace a belt on indesit dryer


Hello.

Tools needed to solve the problem

(A)Standard screwdriver,New belt
.

1 Unplug your dryer to disconnect power to the unit.

2 Remove the screws that hold the dryer top in place using a standard screwdriver. The screws are located along the top and sides of the dryer. With older models -- 1996 and older -- the entire top comes off the dryer. For new models, the timer and console stay in place while the rest of the top comes off.

3 Remove the screws that hold the front panel and door in place using a standard screwdriver. The screws are just inside the door at the top front left and right sides of the dryer. The front panel on older models will move to the right side and on newer models the door will move to the left.

4 Remove the existing belt by pulling the idler pulley to the right. This will take the tension off the belt and allow you to pull it away from the motor pulley.

5 Install the new dryer belt by wrapping it around the top of the drum and allowing it to fall around the circumference of the drum. The grooves of the new belt should face down toward the drum. Rotate the belt around the drum to ensure there are no twists in it.

6 Connect the new belt to the motor pulley. On newer models you can access the motor pulley on the front underneath side of the dryer. Pull the idler pulley to the right and loop the belt around it. On older models you can access the motor pulley through an access panel on the back of the dryer. Pull the dryer away from the wall and remove the access panel using a standard screwdriver. Repeat the same steps as on a newer dryer to install the belt around the motor and idler pulleys.

7 Replace the front panel of the dryer and the screws that hold it in place.

8 Replace the top of the dryer and the screws that hold it in place.

9 Plug the dryer in and make sure the belt works properly before trying to use the unit.

Thanks.

How do a replace the belt on the drum of my indesit washer dryer


REMOVE THE SOCKET FROM THE WALL OUTLET.
To replace a belt that passes over the drum on a dryer you need to be able to pass the new belt over either the back or the front of the drum. This entails removing the front panel to clear the whole drum or loosening off the rear bearing support to pass the belt under it so that the belt can be passed over the drum. From there it is just a case of passing the belt over the motor pulley and replacing all the parts. Select which will be easier on your machine. After replacing everything but the top panel, make sure that the belt is correctly installed by turning the drum several revolutions by hand and ensuring that the belt is running true and still on the motor pulley. Replace the top cover and you are set to go.

Hi ive finally recieved my new belt for my


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.

This works on most front loading machines.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical box that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum. If the belt has broken, then you will need to loop it around the motor,then the idler arm bracket with pulley, and then the drum.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

The belt from an Indesit washing machine broke a wire


The wire you refer to is an earth wire, it has probably pulled of the motor or the frame of the m/c.
If you can't see where it came from, don't worry too much, all you need to do is fasten it to a metal part of the m/c so that is is making a contact to earth.
I assume that you can get a belt o/k
Make sure that the drum and motor are free before you fit new belt.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

Check the bearing behind the drum assembly, the part against the rear wall is probably worn so low there is metal to metal contact, if so replace bearing.....
