Once the top panel, console, and front panel are removed and the belt is released from the idler and motor pulleys, remove the shipping bracket by removing the screw shown. Lift up the drum and remove it from the rear bearing and slide it out to the front.

I get black streaks like the rest of you.. I

it's not the drum,it's the felt pieces that the drum rides on, there is felt on the back of drum and theres a felt piece on the front bulkhead, they could be worn leaving a space letting the clothing slip through hitting the black rollers or something is falling through the space hitting the clothes next time send the model number so i can look up your dryer,the model number is around the opening where you put the clothes into the dryer,open the door and look around the opening and you'll see a tag with model and serial number

HOW DO YOU REPAIR a arm inside the dryer that's come loose.

Hello, Typically, most dryer baffles are either installed/mounted on the dryer drum in a couple of ways:

  • from the outside of the dryer drum when assembled at the factory (remove top of dryer to get at fasteners to reattach them)
  • From the inside using fasterers such as screws covered by a small plastic/rubber cover
  • From the inside attached by means of molded in clips that secure the baffle to the drum.
In order to determine which method your dryer uses, we would need the brand and model number to locate the line drawings that would show the baffles and how they're attached.

The good news is, you can quickly and easily do this yourself by going to and entering in the complete model number XXX.XXXXXXX into the model search. This will provide you with the line drawings for the dryer and you should be able to see the parts and how they are attached.

If all else fails, you can contact sears directly at their toll free phone number for assistance in finding you model number so you can get to the exploded view drawings that relate to your dryer.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Try turning the drum by hand. If it spins easily with no resistance, the belt has failed. On the back of the appliance you should find a label identifying the Make, Model, and Serial Number. Take down all the information provided, and then find a local appliance shop that carries that brand. Order the new belt.

How do I open up the dryer?? The back panel seems to be fused and the drum seems to be attached to the back, not sitting on pads or rollers. At one certain point it makes a "clunk" and I want to see why...

Check at under parts direct tab. Enter the model number and look at the case parts for exploded view of the dryer. This may give clue as to how to open your dryer case.
