There's about 12 Phillips screws holding the inside of the door together. You do not need to remove the door from the hinges. Remove the screws and pull the inner panel away from the outer panel. When re-installing, be careful you do not over-tighten these screws.
Atogether, It's pretty simple, but there's a plastic insert opposite the hinge that sometimes refuses to be aligned properly when you put it back together. If this happens, the insert can catch on the plastic strip that covers the unused holes for switching the hinge to the other side. Worst case - remove the plastic strip if this becomes an issue.

Dryer won't start? It has power and I hear the timer clicking.

Sounds like a bad door switch ( the little button the door closes against). If that switch is bad, the dryer thinks the door is open even though the door is closed. Dryer will not start. thats the easiest place to start.

What's the easiest way to open up a dlb6850 dryer to check the belt?

Unplug the dryer.
The easiest way to check the belt is remove the plate on the lower rear of the dryer. Look in to see if the belt is attached around the pulley wheel.
The only way to change the belt is to remove the screws in the front panel. Open the door. Look up in the door opening and remove these screws. Then you can raise the lid.
If the belt needs changing you must remove the 2 screws in the top right and left sides of the front panel.Just inside the front panel.Then disconnect the door switch wires and remove the front panel.
Slip the belt over the drum. Then open the lower rear panel to reach in to put the belt around the tension pulley.

How do I remove fron panel

Try taking off the top of the dryer. This will give you easier access to the front portion of the dryer. I know it is the long way around, but it is the easiest.

Dryer has just stopped working, no power what so ever.

Check the timer switch. All the power goes through that switch and they do fail over time. If that isn't the source of the problem, then check the door switch. When they fail, just like a top-load washer door switch, NOTHING will work because it senses the door is open even when it's closed. Those are two most obvious things and the easiest to check.

Hope that helps!

If you get a series of four rapid beeps when you push START in an attempt to start your dryer, your door switch (interlock) is defective.  I have experienced this problem before and it is a fairly simple problem to fix.  The easiest way to tell is to open the dryer door and push the door interlock in by hand.  Hold it in while pushing the START button.  If the dryer starts, then all you have is a simple problem of the door not closing properly.  If the dryer still does not start, however, replace the dryer door interlock.  The interlock should also make a definite "click" while pushing it in.  If it does not, the switch is worn out.  Some dryers have an upper and lower door interlock.  If yours is equipped with two interlocks, make sure they are both functioning and that the door is latched properly.  I have experienced problems where dryers doors with two interlocks would close at the top, but not at the bottom.  The dryer would not start as a result.  If you can provide me with your model number I can get a part number and price for you.  I can also tell you where you can get the part and provide instructions on how to replace it.  Let me know.  I hope this helps you.

Dryer won't stop running - Second try

The push-to-start switch is the easiest and cheapest to replace. You can check it by starting the machine then, unplug it, remove one of the wires from the switch, then plug dryer back up. Dryer should not start. If your model has an even heat board and two relays under the console, your problem could be with them if switch is not bad. Reply back if you need to know how to check them.

Fly, sounds like you blew the thermal fuse. This is located on the front blower. You will need to remove door by removing the two screws and lifting up on the hinge. Remove the 2 spacers on the other side of the door. Now the panel will pull out and the blower will be exposed. The fuse will look like the one on the right of the attached back.
