I watched the video several times to make sure I got it right. The first thing that was very helpful was how to disassemble the top cover and front panel using a putty knife to disengage the detents. With the cover off I could acccess the belt and idler pulley. Replacing the belt was fairly easy as long as you note the way it threads through the idler pulley and drive pulley. I thought the video was excellent. It took me right to the problem and the fix. As a bonus the price for the belt was much lower from Parts Supply then from Sears. I've recommended this site to several others.

The video you had of my dryer was different then my dryer and the pulley was in the middle of the bottom and the motor and fan were in front of it. I had to replace the belt without being able to see what I was doing. I couldn't get it at first then realized there was tension on the pulley wheel and had to pull it towards the other wheel in order to get the belt on there. Once I pulled the wheel it went on really easy. My first time working on a dryer but I knew I could do it myself.

Well, to Figure the issue I took the entire thing apart. Actually a lot more than needed. I found the torn belt and ordered it. I did not realize I may need a new belt tensioner which is sold with a wheel for the belt to wrap around and be tensioned by. Actually the original just utilized a rubber c or u shaped design(no wheel) for the belt to slide over. Anyways, instead of ordering and waiting for a new wheeled belt tensioner, I installed new belt with all original parts and working fine. I did oil up the drum rollers to reduce noise. And since I took the whole thing apart I cleaned the lint from every place it could hide. Ps a coke can is said to be helpful to hold the drum up while installing the belt but I found a jug of laundry detergent did better. Totally easy project for someone with no appliance repair history

Trouble shot to failed motor. Ordered motor and new drive belt. The hardest part is figuring out how the dryer dis-assembles. Follow Parts Select on-line instructions. Also, several good instructional videos on You Tube! My recommendation is to order a new "blower wheel" when changing motor on a gas fired dryer. The heat combined with age bonds the blower fan to motor shaft. It had to be broken off in pieces to remove motor.

I came home from work to notice the dryer singing a different tune than usual. I opened the door and noticed that the tub wasnt turning. I popped the top of the dryer up to find a disentigrated belt. Fired up the computer and in a few minutes had ordered the $8 ($15 including shipping) replacement belt. 3 days later took the shopvac and cleaned up the lint and broken belt pieces. Installed the new belt and was back in business with my 8 year old dryer. ** The only complaint comes from my wife who got her hopes up for a new front load washer and dryer** Thanks PartSelect for saving my wallet in more than one way!

Remove two screws on top holding the filter frame.Use flat screwdriver to snap top at front off front panel.Swing top up and secure it against wall or tie in place. Remove screws holding front panel and kick panel to side panels.Did'nt remove back panel.Remove drive belt from pully wheel and then use belt to lift out drum.Use open end wrench on motor pully at rear and I used a socket set on the front of motor,Push down on wrench,counter clockwise,and hold the front pully from moving mine came right off. My dryer is over 10 yrs so the electric conection was changed but the instruction sheet explained how to change the wires,just follow the wire color,easy.
