Question about Dryers
Belt broke on dryer. Can get replacement belt but how do I get the belt on the drum & motor ? Back doesn't come off & bottom is enclosed. Even if I could get the back off it appears that the electrical panel is in the way. Do you come at it somehow from the front ?
1. Disconnect power
2.Use Putty knife and push in to release two spring catches between top and front panel about 3 inches from either side. Top then lifts up. Undo two hex screws on either side of side panels close to top. Front panel then tilts forward. Un-clip door switch and wiring harness before lifting off front panel. If belt is broken, drum should lift off by slowly raising front of drum to disengage wheels at rear of drum.
3. clean accumulated lint from inside fan housing and duct work on front panel as well as from total inside of dryer base before placing new belt around drum, smooth side up before carefully replacing drum in place to engage two wheels at rear of drum.
4. reaching left hand under drum, raise spring loaded idler arm and place ribbed side of belt around pulley on end of motor with right hand before releasing idler arm to provide tension on belt.
5. Place front panel on bottom clips and reengage door switch wiring harness before reattaching hex screws at top of side panels.
6. drop top pannel of unit in place to reengage spring clips before reconnecting power
