Frst take the two screws that are exsposed after you remove the lint trap. Next use a flat bade screw driver and insert it in the seam between the front and top approximately 2 inches in from the side. There is a spring clip 2 inches in on each side you have to trip by shoving the screwdriver in about 1 1/4 inches. The easiest way is to tap them with a hammer. (pry upward on the top and lift it all the way up it will be hinged on the back. Now looking down each front corner you will see a 5/16 screw approximately 8 inches down from the top. Remove these screws and the front can be tilted outward and lifted straight up. You will see a door switch and wires attached to the front remove the wires. You need to do this so you can put the belt around the drum and slide it back. You can see where the belt was riding on the drum. Set the front aside and out of your way. (if you are a very flexable person you can replace the belt from the front but us normal human beings have to remove the back) Next go to the back and remove the back panel there are several 5/16 hex head screws around the outside edge of the back panel remove them and set the back panel aside. Inside on the bottom left side as you face the back of the dryer you will see a motor and a tensioner. The tensioner may still be in place it goes in a slot in the bottom of the dryer next to the pulley on the motor. Put the belt on the drum by putting it around the drum from the front. The belt goes around the drum across the pully on the motor with the tensioner and its pully putting tension of the belt to take up any slack. Then just put everything back in reverse order. Make sure the tensioner pully rotates smoothly if it does not this can cause your belt to break or usually get thrown off the pully. Remember to unplug your dryer before starting and clean the excess lint out of the bottom of the dryer as a good prevention to other problems. I hope this helps

IS THERE A BELT INSIDE THE SL-MC4 CD PLAYER


There should be a belt on the top of the mechanism that moves it back and forth. If the belt came off, it should be inside of the unit somewhere. If the belt is too loose or broken, you can take it to your local ace hardware and get an o-ring that is about the same size and it will work fine.

Top load Kitchenaid washer KAWS850LQ wont spin. Took off back, found broke belt. Best way to replace belt


It won't spin without the belt. You need to place the belt from the motor to gearbox and there may be a tension pulley. Most are adjusted by loosening the motor and pulling it tight

1- Make sure the piston # 1 at the top position. 2- Make sure the mark from the Camshaft gear, Crank shaft gear aligned in the straight line. 3- Put the timing belt in, and adjust the tensioner. Then you are good to go. This is called TDC Top Dead Center. Good luck

Hi, put the belt on the bottom pully and feed the rest up to the top pully, fit the belt on to half of the top pully, now open the door of the washer and very carefuly turn the drum while holding the belt tight to the pully, take care not to get your fingers trapped, make sure that the belt stays on both pullys by rotating the drum by hand a few times, if it all looks ok and central then the jobs a good un.

Broken belt


Hi.

If you cant easily see how to replace the Belt then I think your Dc07 has A clutch unit.

This type of Dc07 has 2 belts one from motor to clutch & the second belt goes clutch to brush roller.

You will need to remove the clutch unit completey from the machine in order to replace the belts, Its alot to explain so try this site it has service manuals covering this.
