Question about Whirlpool Dryers
First always unplug the dryer. Safety first!
Next once you remove any panel you have to watch for sharp edges we call it whirlpool rash!
remove the bottom panel it could be held in with clips on the top. use a putty knife to release them. Then on the top of the dryer remove the lint filter and take out the screws. At the front of the dryer where the front panel meets the top using a putty knife to push the clips the top will come off.
Now you will need a socket or wrench to remove the front panel. before you do that the wires to the door switch will need to be removed from the front panel. mark them in some way so you know which one goes where. Remove the front panel and then the cylinder will be accessible. However before you remove the cylinder "drum" look at the belt and how it goes on the motor. you need to remember how the belt goes back on! very very important. Now remove the drum and it time to vacuum out all of the lint, and do some PM, a couple drips of a lite oil, like sewing machine oil on the shafts of the wheels at the rear of the drum and the idler wheel. Reassemble in reverse.
When you put the belt on the drum, ribs down, and the extra belt hangs on the bottom, making sure the belt is in the correct spot, with no twists. Now the fun begins put the belt thru the idler and on to the motor pulley. once this is done turn the drum several times to make sure the belt doesnt come off. continue with reassembly and ask if you have more questions.
