I lifted the top of the dryer. I unhooked the hangers from the door and took it off. I pulled the drum out, took the broken belt off, slid the new one around the outside middle of the drum, turning the rib side of the belt out,and ran the belt through the pulley attached to the bottom base of the dryer (tension pulley, right hand side), slid the drum back inside the dryer frame, reattached the door, closed and snapped the dryer lid and it worked great!!

Ancient Kenmore Dryer

  • Difficulty: Difficult

Your customer service was great, but your video wasn't particularly helpful because of the extreme age of my dryer. For one thing, with these really old dryers, you don't have to slide the drum out at all; you just unscrew the front panel and slip the belt in that way. The printed diagram that came with the belt helped me figure how the belt slips through the pulley assembly, but the drawing could have been more clear. In spite of my bickering, I probably saved $50 fixing it myself.

Disconnect electric power, the top & cabinet are connected by 2 reusable locks about 4 inches from each front corner, use a thin flat putty knife or similar object, push inward on a lock while lifting gently on the front of the top piece, then let the top rest against the wall. ( a wire on each end of a safety switch for the dryer door may need disconnected) Remove a screw from each front corner of the cabinet, then pull upward on the loose front panel to access the drive motor, remove old belt. install new belt by lifting the front of the drum just high enough to allow the new belt, place groves of belt against the drum and around the motor pulley and belt tensioner, re-install cabinet front, (re-connect safety switch wires) return top and push down at cabinet locks.

I watched a part select youtube video on possible fixes for the problem I was having. Ten minutes and two videos later I had the part out and identified as the problem. I ordered the part ($42.00) which arrived four days later. Spent ten minutes replacing it in machine, turned dryer on and went right back to performing the way it has for the last 12 years. Easiest thing I did all day. Saved me $400 bucks too. Thank you.

REPLACE DRIVE BELT

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

What a pain in the butt to route the belt thru the tensioner! There's room for only one hand in there. The guys who do this for a living must have some secret. My solution was to drill a 3/16 hole thru the side, make a J-hook from 8-32 threaded rod, use that and a wing nut to pre-load the tensioner, route the belt, then slowly back off the wing nut until the belt was tight. It works....

Broken lint filter

  • Customer: Katherine from Indianapolis IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Wrench set

Replacing the lint filter was, of course, the easy part. The rest of the time was spent removing the front of the dryer and cleaning out all the lint that had escaped through the old broken filter. I completely took apart the lint traps inside the front, vacuumed everything out, and replaced the ductwork to the outside that was almost completely blocked with lint. Please take the time to inspect your dryer, and do this if necessary! I feel we prevented a house fire by getting to this in time - and I will be more vigilant in the future.

Raised upper portion of dryer using putty knife on clips just above dryer door. removed 2 screws on inside corner above dryer door, then completely removed the front panel. Lifter out dryer barrel to expose the inner workings. Removed the 2 rollers at back of unit...(be sure to apply some med. weight grease on roller shafts... I used axle grease). Also, had to replace the blower wheel, original was broken in half. With 1/4" nut driver(if I remember correctly) remove the 6-7 screws holding the front cover on the fan blower assy. Using pliers remove the spring clip on front of blower wheel shaft. Upon installing new blower fan you might have to align the new wheel on shaft with the flat keyway then using a 1/2" socket hold it on the front of the blower wheel and lightly tap the wheel in place till seated at the back of the shaft. I use to assume that the majority of the noise I was hearing was coming from the busted dryer. I did have underlying suspicions that there was another source of noise from within my domicile. Once the dryer was re-assembled and 'purring' just like new my suspicions were confirmed. I was able to verify that the source of the 'other' noise was from my wife. I miss my old dryer!
