All service is performed from the front except for the installing the belt back onto the idler pulley. That procedure is done through an 8" removable panel in the rear at the bottom.

How do i replace the motor belts on GE Dryer model DPSR475E0WW? The squeeking is unbearable.


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Phillips screwdriver
  1. Step 1 Unplug the dryer and open the dryer door.
  2. Step 2 Unscrew the screws under the top lip, where the dryer's door closes, with your screwdriver. Once these screws are removed, lift the top off of the dryer. On older models, the entire top will hinge upward out of the way, and on models made after 1997, half the top will pull off.
  3. Step 3 Remove the screws on the inside-top corners of the front panel so the front panel of the dryer can be removed and set aside. On models made before 1997, the front panel should be carefully set to the right side; on newer models, the panel should be set to the left side of the machine. Be careful not to damage the door-control wires.
  4. Step 4 Locate two screws approximately 6 inches off the floor on each side and remove them, allowing you to push the sides of the dryer slightly apart so the drum can be removed. Pull the drum slightly toward you and reach around to remove the dryer belt from the motor pulley. If the belt is broken, this step should not be necessary. Once the belt has been removed from the motor pulley, the drum should pull up slightly and out of the dryer toward you.
  5. Step 5 Remove the old dryer belt and put the new one in place, with the ribs of the belt facing the drum. The slack part of the belt should be placed near the motor. Reverse the previous directions to replace the drum, replace the screws that hold the sides in place, replace the front and replace the top.
  6. Step 6 Pull the dryer out from the wall and remove the four screws holding in the panel near the bottom of the back of the dryer. You will see the motor, the drum and the belt you just set in place. Loop the belt around the motor pulley and the idler pulley, and turn the drum by hand to make sure that the belt is straight and will stay in place. Screw the panel back on and push the dryer back into place against the wall.

How to replace dryer belt


This instruction works for most any dryer--- it should for yours too:
1) The big trick for a dryer belt is getting it around the drum... the rest is easy. You'll either take the top off and work with the drum to ease the belt around the drum- the front of the drum simply rests on slides/rollers depending on the model
You may need to remove some piece from the front to make this happen too-
2) re-fit the belt then by first taking the inspection cover off (or the whole back of the unit) and working the belt to the back of the drum, near to the pulley and the motor...
3) then, work to unload the spring, place the belt around the pulleys (it should be pretty obvious how to do this) and then release the spring mechanism--- this will tighten the belt between the drum and the drive pulleys.
Good luck!!!

My dryer is sqeaking loudly when running


Squeaking usually comes from drum roller supports and/or the belt idler pulley needing lubricated. If the drum does not have drum roller supports under the drum, it will be equipped with a plastic drum glide the is located around the perimeter of the front drum facing. If this plastic wears down it will cause the drum to scrape against the metal bulkhead and make noise. If equipped, you need to replace the drum glide

The drum rollers (if equipped) can be lubricated with a light weight turbine oil (like the kind you would lubricate some ceiling fan motors with). Lubricate the roller wheels at the axle ONLY. Do not lubricate the wheels. The same is true for the idler pulley. Make sure you don't get any oil on the belt, or it will slip.

If you need instructions on how to reinstall the drive belt, repairclinic.com has dryer belt diagram illustrations under their "Repair Help" section. Look for the "Dryer Belt Diagram" link on the left hand side of the page. If your dryer is a GE model, you would use diagram M, D, or L (depending on the age of the dryer).

If you have questions, let me know. I hope this helps you.

Dryer belt replacement


To replace the belt, you have to take the front off the dryer and lift out the drum. With the new belt, place it around the drum and with the drum in place put the excess belt through the idler pulley or bracket (depending on your model), then around the motor pulley. You push the bracket or idler arm toward the motor to get the "loop" of the belt around the pulley on the motor. Hope this helps! Paul Hoffmanns
