Removing the drum of Amana/Speed Queen models
|Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you begin to remove the drum. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.|
There are two screws located at the bottom of the dryer's front panel. One in each corner. Remove each of these screws and lift the front panel up until the two clips at the top disengage. To remove the cabinet top, remove the two screws that are found beneath it, at the corners.
Reach into the back of the dryer and disengage the drive belt from the idler. Continue by removing the four mounting screws that retain the front bulkhead. Hold the drum in position as you lift out the bulkhead and move it aside. You are now able to remove the drum.
To replace your drum, simply reverse the removal process. Reassemble the unit and restore power to your dryer.
