This model differs from the video. The top has rivets holding to the front assembly. I removed bolts holding the top in rear of dryer, and the bolts at the bottom of the front of the dryer. The rear lifts a few degrees. The front bottom lifts away a few degrees. But the front is held in place near the top to the inner face of the dryer. I can't seem to get the assembly open to access the drum. Thanks for your help.
To get the front panel of the unit off, you would want to open the door and remove 3 screws under the lip of the main top. There may also be 2 screws at the bottom corners of the front panel that would need to be removed. Once removed you would remove the front panel of the unit. This will allow access to the drum to be able to replace the belt. You will have to lift the drum slightly to get the bottom around the drum.
I need a new belt and possibly a nylon bushing for the axle on my poor old 1976 GE Commercial Clothes Dryer. Which model belt do I need?
Answer Edie, the replacement belt is part number WE12X10014. I believe the nylon bushing you are referring to is only available with the idler pulley, part number WE12X81. Thanks.
Drum does not spin. It does heat.
Answer Hello Kim. It sounds like you need to replace the belt WE12X10014 on the unit. Check and see if it is broke. If so, you will need to replace the belt.
