Check in the back and see if the belt has a wide span on it. If it does, it doesn't only go around the fan pulley but also the drum (Which is usually the case). THis being the case you need to look for and screws you can find on the dryer outer casing because you will need to remove the outer casing to get to the drum. If you look for screw on the upper part just inside the door many times the upper deck is on hinges and will tilt backward so you can view the top of the drum with the belt on it. Remember how it came apart; it goes back together in reverse manner. Once you usually find the belt tension pulley through the back of the dryer compartment, let the tension off the pulley and slide the belt off of it. Once you get the belt off put it back on just like the old one.

Im assuming you have a steam dry option? If this is the case there are fuses attached to this system to avoid injury and bad this from happening. These fuses blow a lot. If you have a ohms meter, check the fuses on the steam dry unit for ohms. I bet one of them is blown and that is the reason your not getting heat during this cycle.

My bravo steam dryer is showing an F1 code, and I can't get it to start

this is a control board issue, you may be able to clear the fault using these steps:

1) Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.

2) Plug the dryer back in or turn the breaker back on.

3) Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display.

4) Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

If it will not clear then you will need to replace the control board, Good Luck Tim
