Question about Dryers
Is it hard to change a belt on a Maytag DE410 Dryer? How do you lift the top lid? Are there clips I have to pop or? Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Craig
You probably don't want to do it all through the top, though the screws and pulling the console forward can help with that.
If the belt, drum support rollers or motor is making squeaking happen, the thing to know is how the belt goes back on; it goes around the drum, and on the underside it goes over the motor hub, wrapping around and back beneath the idler pulley before ascending the drum again.
In order to get to it, you just unscrew Philips screws low on the front face of the dryer, swing the bottom forward until the top clips release, then undo 4 bolts on brackets that hold the drum-front retainer. Oh, and mind that wool is a gasket and bearing material here, not just overpacked lint (though it will do to vacuum the thing out.) Usually the belt, rollers in back and any idler pulley issues are replaced together. I had to sand rust off the roller mount last time; metallic washers on it had worn and contributed the iron, which rusted on the hub, keeping the wheel from turning.

Most of the time these models have screws in the back of the machine on the top lid. You'll need to get over behind the dryer to access this panel. You'll need a "star" type screwdriver (most come in a set). Remove the top lid to expose the drum. The belt will run around the drum and down around the safety cut out switch. This switch is most likely a teflon or plastic wheel that the belt loops around. After installing the belt, replace all of the screws and you're good to go!
