Cleaning out the lint build up inside your
dryer is very important. The accumulation
of lint can catch fire and spread to your
home. The lint will also act as insulation
on your motor and cause premature
failure. All dryers and there vents should
be cleaned at least once a year. Doing
this will keep your family safe and your
If your dryer sounds like it is running but the drum
doesn't turn then it is likely a broken belt.
Unplug the electric for the dryer.
On most models the belt can be checked by
raising the top of the dryer. Raising the top can
be accomplished by removing the 2 screws under
the lint filter. After the screws are removed grasp
the top on the sides with both hands and pull
forward and up. The top will then hinge to the
back and now you can visibly check the belt.

two panels. If it is two panels then you will have to
start by removing the bottom panel. This can be

into the top of the lower panel on both sides to
release the retaining clips. If your dryer is the
type with the top retaining clips then be careful
not to pull on the sides as this will damage the top
Now that the lower panel is removed you will have
to remove the 2 screws at the top of the upper
panel and loosen the 2 screws at the bottom of
the upper panel. Remove the wire harness or
terminal leads to free top panel from dryer. Be
careful to properly mark the wires so you install
them correctly when reassembling.
If your model is just one front panel then you just
remove the 2 top screws, remove wires or
harness, and lift panel up and away from dryer.
Now you can remove the old belt from the dryer
and install the new one.
You will be able to see where the old belt rode on
the drum. Make sure the new belt is placed in the
same spot or it will throw the idler and come off
When belt is around drum, loop belt under idler
and around motor pulley. The idler is meant as a
tensioner for the belt.
Reassemble the dryer.
