How do i get the belt around the motor pully wheel on a white knite cl637wv


If you can't push the tensioner pulley back far enough to allow the belt to go around it, disconnect the tensioner spring, route the belt, then reconnect the spring. If it's a question of having adequate strength to push against the spring and still have a hand free to route the belt, find something to jam against the tensioner to hold a bit of slack in the pulley. Make sure the jamming tool (large screwdriver, block of wood, etc.) is sturdy enough to hold securely, and well-braced. An ill-timed slip could cause severe hand injury.

If your dryer does not have a belt tensioner mechanism, the motor bracket probably has belt adjustment slots in it. In that case, loosen (but do not remove) the motor mounting bolts that go through the slots, push the motor over a bit to give you the slack you need,route the belt, then pull the motor back to tighten the belt and retighten the motor bolts. Sometimes a tight belt can be rolled onto the pulley by starting it on one side of the pulley and turning the pulley by hand while pushing the belt along in the direction of the turn, but it is better to mount the belt with slack in it; excess stretching causes premature failure.

Remove front panel and door on maytag electric dryer atlantis


Simple, 4 screws total. open door, remove one screw from each of the door hinge plates that are against the front panel, remove two screws directly across the door opening (other side of dryer), door can be lifted slightly and pulled out of slots, and front panel can be unhooked from retaining clips by a little wiggling at the top sides, swing it down toward the floor and lift it from bottom retaining hooks.

I need to know how to get the front off of my lg dle0442w dyer.


Disconnect power then using a putty knife, push the blade in the seam between the top panel and the front panel against the retaining clips 2 3/4" (7 cm) from the sides. Lift the top panel while doing this to release the clips and raise the pane.

Open the door and remove the two screws at the bottom of the door opening.

Remove the screws securing the top of the front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel slight away from the cabinet and disconnect the door switch wire harness. Pull the front panel completely out and set it aside.

Reassemble the dryer by following the disassembly steps in reverse order.

Dryer door will not stay closed tight enough to keep dryer running. I have chanced both clips, is there an adjustment?


Push the pin switch in and see if she will run with the door open. If you put in the metal clips, the usually nylon, receiver part may be bad from forcing it the last few times. These are easily cracked with very little effort, and a somewhat bent prong on the actual door.

My hyundai lantra's driver side window has become stuck down and appears to have come off the runner, how do i get the interior panel off to replace the window onto the runner? Cant seem to get the window...


Hi,
the window winder handle has a spring "E" clip so you need to use a this blade and turn the handle till you can see one of the edges of the clip and then push the blade in against the edge of the clip to push it of. NOTE: the clip is under a little pressure so when it comes of it will try to flick of quickly so try to keep your hand around so to catch it.

Then its just the door panel clips which are around the edges of the door panel just pop these off with a good sized screw driver all the way around, some of them will be quite tight so you will need to use a little force.

When putting the window winder back on push the clip back on slightly but not all the way then push handle on slowly when it is all the way on give it a sharp bang so that the clip will lock back in place.

Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Dryer door won't stay shut when drying clothes


There is a clip inside your dryer door that acts as snap (kinda like on baby clothes). It snaps the door closed - so to speak. If the outer part of that 'snap' gets a little stretched out it will not hold as tightly. When those heavy, wet clothes hit against the door it pops it open because the 'snap' is not working right. As long as the outer part of the 'snap' is still intact, you can fix this problem by simply squeezing it together alittle to make it grab tighter so that the door stays closed while drying your clothes. If that doesn't make it tight enough you could tear off a small corner of a paper towel to fill in the hole a little to make it tighter.

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!

Did a load last night but will not start today. checked 30 amp circuit breaker but not tripped. replace 30 amp circuit breaker anyway. checked outlet for AC and seems OK for 220 volt. dryer is showing no...


There are no fuses inside dryers except thermal fuses, and they don't run the light. Check the connections where the cord hooks to the dryer. Is this a digital control dryer or does it have a knob? Some of the digital ones use the control box to run the light too, otherwise it must be a wiring problem.

Door switch replacement


REMOVE TWO SCREWS UNDER THE LINT FILTER DOOR.
USE A FLAT INSTRUMENT SUCH AS A PUTTY KNIFE TO PUSH AGAINST A SPING CLIP IN EACH OF THE FRONT CORNERS OF THE SPACE BETWEEN THE TOP AND FRONT.
ONCE THE SPRING CLIPS ARE PUSHED TOWARD THE BACK, YOU CAN LIFT THE TOP AND SWING IT BACK UP AND OUT OF THE WAY. IT IS HINGED AT THE BACK. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE DOOR SWITCH FROM THE OPENED TOP. IF NOT, REMOVE TWO SCREWS LOCATED TOWARD THE TOP FROM THE INSIDE OF THE CABINET.THEN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SWING THE FRONT
TOP TOWARD YOU. THE DRUM WILL FALL SLIGHTLY BECAUSE IT IS SUPPORTED BY THE FRONT. THIS SHOULD
GIVE YOU ENOUGH ROOM TO ACCESS THE SWITCH.

Front glass window seems loose


When the machine is spinning, place your hand gently against the glass and check for a vibration. Do not push on the glass.
This is to check and see if the vibration is from the door or from somewhere else.

The front door comes apart. Disassemble the door and check the seal where the glass sits. If this seal is worn or out of place it will allow the glass to rattle against the rear panel. When the machine is spinning, place your hand gently against the glass and check for a vibration. Do not push on the glass

Replace door hinges


I had exactly the same problem until tonight!
I had nothing to lose so solved it by sheer brute force!
The problem is with the hinges that the door clips into they seem to get very loose. If you can manage to crimp them against metal they won't move and your door will shut properly. This is how I did it.

1. There are a couple of locks (levers) on each hinge open them up and then lift off the door
2. Ensure that there is nothing wrong with the door brackets, tighten the screws on them to ensure they don't move.
3. Fit the door back on to the hinges and with the levers still open(towards the door) push the door against the hinges which bends them tight in position (don't push too hard otherwise you will completely bend the bracket out of shape you just need to do it enough to crimp it in to place and prevent it from moving)
4. Now open the door, push the levers back closed against the hinges and then shut the door. Hopefully it will be a much tighter fit.

Good luck!
