You have to take apart the whole dryer to get to the belt.Nut driver with cordless drill make it go so much faster.Unplug dry, take apart dryer and replace with olr belt with new belt.Takes about 20 minutes to do.plus I took off the two guide wheels on back of cabinet and greased everything.Works like brand new.I had a repair guy tell me I needed a new motor.If you can spin the drum by hand replace belt first.
Removed the front dryer panels (lower & upper), front drum support and drum. This gave me easy access to the idler pulley and tension spring. I also took the opportunity to vacuum all of the lent that had collected over the years. After installing the new parts and aligning the belt, I reassembled the panels, plug it in and it worked like a champ! Locating the parts on your website was fast and easy. I appreciate it and thank you.
Took the front off the Dryer removed the drum. Replace drum rollers, Idler pulley wheel with bearing, and drum belt them replaced drum belt and reinstalled the drum. Put the front back on the dryer job complete.
I removed the top and the front of the dryer and I had done before, so that was not to bad, then I moved the drum forward just enough to get it off the rollers but did not remove it all the way in order to keep the belt in place. I removed the snap ring holding the wheels in place and put the new ones on. I put the dryer back together, unfortunately it did not fix the problem. I am now waiting on the idler lever arm to replace it. Hopefully, that will be the key!
Need two to pull the drum.Not heavy just hard to handle. Pulleys came out easy went back easy. Belt wanted to twist butfound that out quickly when it was running and making a noise.Took it off and put on the inside towardthe back of the dyer. No more noise. Now you have to put your hand on the dyer to see if it is running (sooooooo quite) Hope this helps.

remove front panel ,remove top panel,lift drum,slide new belt on to drive motor then idler pulley then put belt over the drum.reassemble in reverse , front panel first
The first time, I inserted the belt the wrong way. The drum turns a little bit then stops. The manufacturer does not give any instructions or drawings on their website on that particular model, only drawing of parts.I called the technical support department and they told me to call different telephone numbers in my area and repair technicians. Still no schematic and instructions. The solution: I took the broken belt, put around the drum, measured it, the remaining slack, did some trial and error around the motor axle and the pulley.Placed a 2 X 4 piece of wood to hold the tension of the pulley. With the belt around the drum, carefully inserted the drum downward. placed the belt starting from the left side of the drum to the bottom of the motor axle, around it then to the bottom of the tension pulley, then towards the right side of the drum. Lift the drum to its proper position, horizontal. Remove the piece of wood. Turn the drum manually so it moves freely. check the belt moving around the axle and the pulley. Install back the panels and screws tightened. Test and observe a few drying runs.
This would be an easy job, if I were to do it again. I needed to download a manual only to get ACCESS to the machine. Removing the outside lag bolts did NOT provide access.They had hidden clips that were ENTIRELY invisible from the outside. I believe this was done deliberately, to prevent those who don't know the specifics about this machine from gaining access.It's an easy job, once you know the idiosyncracies of the construction of the machine. It's a major pain in the ass if you don't, even if you are used to replacing belts in other dryers.Having done it once, the next time I could do it in under 20% of the time it took me the first time.
remove the housing under the dryer door. take out the lint trap. I took the whole bottom off the dryer to easily get to the tensioner pully. I then loosened the tub and slid off the old belt and replaced it.
Took off the two lower front screws, Then the screws to take off the door and frame. Then the lint trap. Finally took out the drum. BOY WAS MY DRYER DIRTY WITH LINT! Vacumned it all out and washed the filter and filter housing with soap. Found out that I needed tension wheel also. Ordered that. Replaced the wheel, that was the hardest part. Need to take off this part like a "spring washer" and put it back on with the new wheel in place. Then placed the belt on the drum, belt on the tension, screwed the drum holder frame on, screwed the door frame on, screwed the lower panel on and it works great. By the way I am a female and if I can do it anyone can.
Lifted the top of the dryer removed two screws and pulled the front of the Dryer forward. Slipped the new belt over the drum and over the motor pulley.Pushed the front back in place and snapped the top of the dryer down and the job was complete.I thought the part would take three days to get here.It was delivered the day after I ordered it.
I began by disassembling the dryer to diagnose the problem. I discovered the belt had been riding on a section of a broken idler pulley as well as wearing a groove into the idler pulley bracket. I removed the broken parts and went to the Internet for replacement parts. Three days later the parts arrived and I began reassembly. I found it a little difficult to replace the drum with the belt in position but found it much easier to recruit some assistance during this phase. Another factor with the difficulty was that I hadn't paid real close attention to the webbing direction of the belt around the pulley and there were no diagrams depicting the proper direction of the new belt. I did figure it out relatively quickly but would advise paying very close attention to parts positioning during disassembly.
