    I think I worked it out myself at one stage but just couldn't believe that it was done that way.

All you need do is to string the belt around the drum, then pull the belt loop in between the idler wheel and the base of the idler assy where it connects to the drum,then pull back on the idler to put the belt around the motor pulley and then release the idler pulley assy carefully and this will then keep tension on the drum belt

I need to replace inner and outer tie rods and Idler arms. Is there a diagram?


The inner and outer tie rods are pretty self explanatory remove the nut from the knuckle. Whack the knuckle a couple times where the tie rod goes through and the tie rod will pop out. The inner will releas the same way. Get the sleeve whe you get the inner and outer tie rod. It will make life a lot easier. Assemble the new parts to the approximate same length as the parts you removed and install. The idler arm will be bolted to the frame and then have a ball and socket that will be removed in the same manner as the tie rod end. The pitman arm will require a puller to seperate it from the gear box. Sometimes you have to heat up the end that attaches to the gear box to get them to pop. Sometimes the gear box needs to be removed in order to get the puller on the pitman arm. Lower and upper ball joints are also very common on these. If they have not been done I would have them checked as well.

Have a Maytag Performa Oversize Electric Dryer. Think we need to replace the belt. How do you get access to the drum? Seems the sides and back are a fused piece of metal, the top and front are separate. ...


Hi bmwbergs...

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch,start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if necessary. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the two screws that hold the filter housing to the top of the dryer lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer by inserting a screwdriver between the top and frame on each side of the dryer to pop the lid up from the retaining clips.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards on a type of hinge and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine by disconnecting the door switch and removing the two screws located on either side of the dryer frame.
Move the door and front of machine forward to remove.
This will expose the belt,idler bracket and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor pulley.
Here is a link to see a picture of your belt routing in case the belt is broken when you open your dryer:
http://www.expertappliance.com/dryerbeltconfiguration.html

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you remove and lubricate the drum rollers.
And also clean the shafts of the rollers as they will collect hair,dust,etc and cause problems and then lubricate the shafts and rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil or a vasoline type of lubricant. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting dry and making a squeeling noise, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

I am wanting to replace a drum bearing, and I've gotten the dryer top panel and front panel off, but I don't see how to release the drum belt (which is okay) so I can get the drum out. How to do...


On the bottom left side next to the motor you will see a small plastic wheel (idler pulley) which the belt is wrapped around. The wheel is attached to a L-shaped piece of metal which is known as an idler spring arm which is made out of spring steel.

Move the arm one way or the other and you will notice the belt tension getting looser. Push the arm further that way until you can get the belt off the pulley an motor. Use caution as the spring arm has torque on it and could snap back.

Once the belt is off the motor and idler pulley you can then pull the drum out. You will need to lift the drum up slightly since the back sits on drum wheels(the groove on the back of the drum). Take the drum and belt out together.

Once you have made the repairs, install the drum in reverse order.

Note: Before removing the belt, make a diagram of how the belt goes around the motor and pulley for future reference.

Hope this helps you out.

How do take the front of the dryer off on Kenmore model 417.94812301


To remove the front of the dryer you must first take off the control panel It starts with 2 small screws (one each side ) just up and under the overhang on each side. Then take the two screws out of the white cover plate that is above the washer lid. The cover plate that is angled toward you. Once that cover plate is off you can remove 4 screws to remove the aluminum cover plate that hides the electrical connections. ( Which of course aren't live as you already unplugged or turned off the power to the unit). Once the aluminum cover is off you can see the dryer exhaust connection and some of the electrical connections. Remove the last two screws for the control panel ( which are now visible). Disconnect the electrical connections 2 or 3 as well as the safety override wire. (These are all plug type type connectors). Put the control panel aside. Now go to the top of the dryer and remove the 4 or 6 screws holding the lid on the dryer. Remove the lid. You now have access to the dryer drum (which is much lighter than you think and easy to remove (write ups elsewhere)). You can also remove and replace the heating element, the idler arm and the drive belts. (Hint:, before disconnecting the drive belts and idler arm draw them. They assemble backwards to the way your brain thinks after the fact).
To get to the washer is completely different. You start by removing the 2 screws at the front of the washer at floor level. Once these are out you can remove the front of the washer by pushing the panel down to release it. ( about 1/2 inch). Once the panel is off you then remove a screw under the top of the washer at the front on each side. The lid can now be removed. From there you have access to the water inlet valve, the idler arm, the drum, the motor, the drain, etc etc .

Have fun and cheers
