How do you open the Frigidaire affinity dryer bc i think the belt is broken


If the belt is broken dryer will not tumble, you can turn drum and should be resistance to turn, if turns easy then belt is broken. This is a difficult repair. If you can't see how to open dryer you won't be able to replace belt.

Need to change the rear drum bearing


the top of the dryer needs to be removed.then you will find a couple of screws on the front of the dryer inside the cabinet that need to be removed,as well as the control head and front panel. there will be a small sliver vent access panel on the lower left side of the machine in the back that needs to remove in order to take the drum belt off the motor pulley.

once you remove the front panel then the drum can be lifted out and the bearing and hub can be replaced

I need a diagram on how to open up the back or front to install the dryer drum belt for my Frigidaire FLSE60RGS0. we bought the belt, and I did get a diagram on how to install belt, but doesn't show us...


Disconnect the water, vent duct, and electric connection to gain access to the rear of the machine. Be prepared to catch any water that comes out of the hoses.

On the rear of the dryer, remove the panel that's behind the dryer section (upper panel).

If the belt is intact, make a drawing of the belt's route.

If the belt is broken, remove and discard it.

Slide the new belt onto the drum to approximately where it belongs (lined up with the motor pulley). I think this model might have a groove for the belt where it rides on the drum.

With the slack portion of the belt, squeeze it to make a loop and push it through and onto the tensioner pulley on the bottom of the dryer.

Using the tensioner spring to relax the belt (pull it toward the motor pulley), slip the belt onto the motor pulley.

Check the belt by pulling on it to see if the drum, motor and tensioner are rotating freely (don't pinch your fingers!).

I am not the best at abstract description. I hope this helped.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Dryer not turning, but still heating


If you can hear the blower running or have air blowing through the vent, then the drum belt or belt tensioner spring is broken or has come off of the tensioner pulley.

If the blower isn't running, you have a problem with the motor, the motor starter circuit, or the timer.

I need to replace the belt in my GLER341AS2 model Frigidaire dryer. How do i open up the dryer to do so?


Unplug the dryer and using a 1/2 inch pait scraper locate the spring loded clips holding the top down to the front of the cabnet. They are located about one to two inches from the front corners of the dryer.
Lift the top and rest it on the wall behind the dryer.
Looking inside the dryer locate the screws holding the front panel to the cabnet and remove the screws.
Mark the wires to the door switch and remove.
Remove the front panel.
Go behind the dryer and remove the small rear panel near the bottom of the dryer.Observe how the belt is attached to the pulleys.Release the tention on the belt by moving the belt tentioner and sliding the belt off the motor pulley.
Go to the front of the dryer and grab the belt on the top of the dryer drum. Holding the belt lift the drum straight out holding the drum with the belt.
Check to see if all the rollers are in good shape and rotate freeley. Oil if needed.
Check to see if the teflon gliders located on the front panel that hold the drum are in good shape. Replace if needed.
Vaccum the inside of the dryer.
Put the new belt over the drum and line the drum up and install back into the dryer.
Put the front panel back on and reinstall the two screws.
Replace the door switch wires.
Make sure the grooves on the belt are flat to the dryer drum
Put the top down and go behind the dryer'
Locate the belt.
Pinch the belt and insert it under the tention pulley and slide it over the motor pulley. Make sure the belt is positioned straight and located where the old belt was positioned on the drum.

Gas dryer gets hot but the drum doesn't turn. Broken belt?


open the door to the dryer and inside the rimof the door there is a switch, puch the switch in and with the oppisite hand puch the start button on the dryer. if the drum does not spin then you know its the belt. Pull Lint vent out if top mounted and remove the 2 screws, Between the top of dryer and the front panel, stick a putty knife roughly 3 inches from the side of dryer. There are locks that you will unlock with putty knife. once top is removed at top corners of front panel inside you will find 1 swcrew on each corner, and pull off front panel, slip new belt in and start putting things back together.

Fridiaire dryer not turning on (another ??)


Yes, I had the same issue. If I slam the door shut very hard then it would work. So I found the issue is the door safety switch not turning on when the door is closed. Simple fix is to put some masking or duct tape on the door so that it would push the switch when the door shuts. There is an indentation in the door in the top left corner where the door contacts the switch. This causes the door to not turn the safety switch on when closed. Simply fill in the indentation with a little tape and problem solved.
