Broken drive belt Joseph B. • Wildwood, FL • March 23, 2014 My Repair & Advice Removed front and top with phillip screwdriver and 8mm socket. slid new belt over drum, had to remove an access panel at lower rear of dryer to thread the new belt over belt pulley and spindle. Put it all back together,and fortunately it worked properly. I'm not much of a handyman, and it took about 45 minutes. Make sure to put the ribbed side of new belt against drum.
