The bottom access panel removes easily, "popping off" from the clips. the top also comes off easily. 2 nuts hold on the roller wheels. One was worn badly, and I replaced them both. I also replaced the belt easily. The belt came with drawings and instructions for replacement. The I recevied the parts within 2 days after ordering. Thanks you for the easily available parts. It saved me hundreds of dollars in repacement.
I didn't, my son-in-law did. He replaced the belt and the pulley, and within 5 minutes he had my dryer together and running. He was so impressed with your service that he put you in his favorites on his computer. Thanks

I ordered a new belt from yall which thanks to yall was the correct belt. I installed it and it works great.
I removed the screws from the lent trap. Opened the top and front of dryer. Removed drum, sliped the new belt on then replaced the drum and front. The access panel on the bottom was still off from inspecting the belt. The Idler pulley had come off when the old belt gave out. Thanks to the FINE instrutions inclosed with the new part it was easy to reassemble. I rotated the drum and used the screwdriver to get the rear drum seal back in place. I test ran the dryer then put everything back.
popped the top up...removed srews from front panel....i cheated....just removed the screws from the left side...and loosend the ones on the right...it was enough for me to swing the front panel from the left out a little and get the belt around the drum. popped off the kick plate on the bottom....then just put the belt around the pulley and idler....and that was it...buttoned it up...and my mother is happy now.
My dryer stopped working Sunday night and I was lucky enough to only need to replace a broken belt. I found your web site Monday morning and ordered the belt. Your web site and ordering process are very user friendly. To my amazement the belt arrived Tuesday before noon and when I got home from work it only took me about 15 minutes to complete the installation. I'm in my mid-fifties and have to say it's unfortunate that experiences like what I just had with your company are rare but I'm delighted with your obvious focus on total customer satisfaction. You are now bookmarked in my favorites for life! Until my next repair.
i first unplugged the power. I took off the screws to the lint trap, and removed the lid. I unhooked the wires so that the lid could be rested against the wall. I then unscrewed the front cover, and lifted it to remove it. I then put the belt around the drum, and then placed the pully back into place and routed the belt through it and around the motor. I then replaced front cover and screwed it back on. I then put the wires back together and put the cover back on. I replaced the lint trap screws and plugged it back in. Yeah - dry clothes!
we took the dryer apart (this was the longest part, cause we didn't know exactly was wrong with it and how to take it apart) we didn't have a schematic or manual for it came with the house i bought a year ago. the dryer would turn on and get the heat, but the tumble wouldn't work. idea= belt snapped.we pulled off the back, tada broken belt. ordered the belt from this wonderful partselect.com website (home depot doesn't carry them!) and within 2 days i had the part to put on... real easy. it took longer for me to initiate project broken dryer than to order the part and reassemble. smeasy. it cost me 12$ and 2 days to do the same job a serviceman would have charged me 200$ and take 10 days to book an appointment with.
I removed the two screws holding the lint trap to the top. I popped the lid up and leaned it back. The broken belt was lying on the bottom. I copied the model #. I found the belt onthe Internet and ordered it having it sent directly to the house where the dryer was. It arrived two days earlier than I anticipated. Since shipping was being tracked I knew it had arrived. After work I stopped there to fix it. I popped open the bottom panel, vacuumed out the inside, removed the two top screws holdin the front. Then I slipped the belt between the drum and the front. Inlaced the belt on the motor pulley and tensioner according to the drawing that came with the belt. Then I put the two top screws holding on the front. Then popped on the bottom and top panelsand put the two screws holding on the lint filter. All done, 15 minutes including ordering the belt.
After my husband went to work, I looked up info of "how to" video on internet. After viewing video I thought I would try to replace belt myself. Everything went well. The only thing I did wrong was placing the belt on the wrong side. After seeing that it kept sliping off, I realized what I did and reversed it. And all was well.
Following video clip instructions helped. Had trouble removing blower fan from the motor spindle shaft (must of had rust on threads). Wrenching rounded off the square plastic shaft of the blower and was not able to remove motor for replacement. Recommend removing plastic blower from motor prior to placing order for parts. Knowing the plastic blower was going to be destroyed, a replacement unit was ordered. When new one arrived, I simply used a 1/4" bit drill and drilled a circular series of holes around where the metallic threaded sleeve was contained to separate the blower from the motor for removal and installed a new motor and blower at the same time.
Your instructional video was very helpful - made it a simple one-man job.
