Some models you can replace by tipping dryer on its back. Tough part is sneaking the belt between frame and tub. Otherwise remove back panel, remove lint screws, remove control board. Now remove the shell and you can easily replace belt. This is a def diy project. Check youtube for general description. Whirlpool and roper would be similar.

How do you replace the drive belt in a kenmore dryer model 88042

Pull the fron off. Remove tub, should have a spring loaded idler pulley next to the motor. Make sure that it is not broke and spins freely. Also check tub support rolers on each side. They shoule spin freely. If ok, put belt around tub, install tu. Put belt around spring loaded pulley. May need a hand holding tub while you install pulley. Put front on. Make sure the fron of cover fits inside the tub seal. Good luck. email me with issues, bobby.crochet@lyondellbasell,com.

Dryer works but squeeks the back is solid no inspection panel how do i get acess to grease bearing?

Greetings, The first step is to UNPLUG dryer:
The front has to come off to service your dryer.. The door comes off by removing screws from hinge..The door pulls out and you then grab the front panel and pull it towards you. This gets you into the drive area..Its most likely the drum rollers or belt pulley thats making noise..There is no drum bearing on the dryer.

The drum support assembly has to be removed to replace rollers or at the ;least lube them. I suggest going thru this labor to just replace parts then lube them. There are four screws that hold this front on..Two screws on each corner. Remove paying attention to how the tub rides on the front to make it easier on install...The belt can come off and the whole tub can be removed.

The belt goes back a certain way, so be careful to take note of how it fits back on drum and around belt pulley..At this time you can replace your rollers in back( the front has two rollers as well) and replace your belt pulley.

High pitch squeak with every turn of the drum

Hello. The dryer has a belt running around the entire tub and that belt also goes over an idler pulley which keeps the tension correct. When you get that high pitched squeak the fix is to replace both the belt and the pulley. If you go to and enter your dryer model number you will get the schematics for your dryer which will show you exactly where these parts are. You can also order new parts from that site if you choose. Regards, Joe

Washer smoking

If the WASHER BELT is burnt or broken or the WASH TUB is not rotating properly.

You can unplug the unit, remove the front panel of the washer and then slowly remove the belt. The replacement belt is easy to put back on. Finding a belt on the internet for under $10 is easy - just search for a belt with part number 134161100. Potentially the plastic pieces are from the damaged transmission. Replace the belt first to see if you can keep using the unit. If the transmission is damaged it is a bit expensive to replace and difficult to do yourself. I'll keep you posted if I have to do the same to my unit.

Remove and replace the washer belt (order part # 134161100 from google or ebay), arrived in two days and noticed busted plastic pieces and two semi-circular metal bearings that would have fit into the bearing.

Step 1: Keep the front panel of the unit off and run the unit in a normal wash mode. You can do this without filling up the wash tub with water by simply rotating the WASH dial to the proper setting (eg. RINSE). Be very careful as the moving parts could cause injury while the front panel of the washer is removed and the tub is turning.
Step 2: Watch to see if the belt is still slipping and the tub does not turn. If it rotates properly, then congratulations, you have fixed your problem with a new belt. If the belt still slips, ... proceed to step 3.
Step 3. Some web sites (and the user guide) say that the 'tension spring' may not be working. I don't believe this is the case. Upon closer inspection take a look at the 'transmission' which is the large metal part that rotates the tub. Unplug the unit and using your hands, see if you can rotate the tub simply by turning the transmission part. Turn the transmission in both directions. If you see that it gets STUCK from time to time, then the transmission needs to be replaced due to some worn bearings.

NOTE: From here you must first consider three things:
A. Do I want to get into a major repair with this washer, or simply purchase a new stack set?
B. Should I call a GE repair guy and have him replace the transmission?
C. Should I do it myself?

HOW TO FIX (If you chose "C" above):
FIX Prep Step 0. Gather a bunch of old towels around to clean up any water that spills
Step 1. Empty the wash basin and disconnect all external hoses, gas lines etc.
Step 2. Arrange the stack set so that you can lay it down on its back. Always good to have two people to do this step.
Step 3. Disconnect the tub basin springs and all electrical wires from the motor (this is easier to do while the unit is laying down; some channel lock pliers come in handy)
Step 4. You can stand the unit back up for this step. Slowly remove the tub basin from the unit, and position it upside down.
Step 5. Remove the transmission (requires standard socket set)
Step 6. Order the Transmission Assembly Kit online (I found mine at SEARS PARTS ONLINE, and when I called to check if they had it in stock, the customer service rep even gave me a code for 10% off the online order - not too shabby and makes me want to go back again. Great support service!)
Step 7. When the part arrives, re-assemble everything and test.

Tub Assembly Part Number: WH38X10014 (aka. GE part # 1603 on their 'break away' diagram)
Available on

Note: The GE Parts people were unfortunately not helpful at all during this troubleshooting. In fact, when calling their support line I was told that they would not even sell me a transmission because I was not a certified repair man. The GE service rep was insistent that I could not find the transmission anywhere else except through them. Although they have nice diagrams of all the WSM2780 machine parts on their web site, don't look to them for any extended repair support.

You can contact me if you have any questions.
Thanks, Chringram
