The top panel and the front panel need to be removed in order to put a new replacement belt. The top panel is held on to the front panel by securing clips. Use a putty knife to pry and release the clips as shown. Once released, raise the top panel to the rear of the dryer.

Remove the screws securing the front panel to the cabinet then pull the top of the panel and lift it off. Disconnect the door switch from the front panel.

Remove the rear access panel then release the belt from the idler pulley and the motor pulley. Take the belt out to the front of the dryer then wrap the new belt around the drum in alignment with the motor pulley and the idler pulley. Refer to the diagram below for the belt installation on the motor pulley andOur Frigidaire washer/dryer stack heats, - bdaced3.gifpulley.

    I noticed that the picture shown was for a stand alone dryer (ours is stacked), but should your instructions work for the stack also?

    The instructions outlined should also work with your stacked dryer since both are basically the same.

    thank you! we got the dryer to work, but it still is squeeking a you think we have to regrease the area since some of it came off when we were replacing the belt? or does it seem like the belt may be a little bit out of place still yet?

    The belt will eventually align itself once it is properly installed on the motor pulley and the idler pulley. The ribbed part should face the drum. The squeaking will eventually go out once the belt has settled properly.

Washer is not agitating in whites and slowly in colors. What and how do we troubleshoot?

1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped

2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-

If the washer starts spinning, then we know the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.

If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.

3) Visually inspect the lid safety switch- Is it loose or cracked? If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.

4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.

My Frigidaire front load stacked washer/dryer makes a horrible noise and won't spin. It works perfectly except for the spin cycle

you need to remove the agitator take the cap off and remove the bolt from inside the agitator and then remove it look at the metal trunion in the bottom of the tub and see if there is a broken bolt holding the trunion to the shaft.there is a chance the transmission need to be replace if there is no broken bolt

I think a overloaded the washer and it wouldnt spin.

Frigidaire washer will not take a overloaded tub without causing belt problems.
Unplug the washer.
Remove the 2 screws on the very bottom of the front washer panel.
Slide the front panel down slightly and remove it from the cabinet.
Inspect the belt around the motor pulley and transmission.
If it is worn at all it needs replacing.
You could plug the washer back in and set it to Spin cycle and watch for the motor to turn and the belt slipping to verify a bad belt.
Keep your hands,fingers and tools away from all moving parts.
