How to change the dryer belt on this unit?
Answer Hello Greg,
You would need to remove the front panel for dryer to change belt. You would remove access panel, You will then have to remove 2 screws from top corners of unit and take front panel off. Remove front bulkhead and put belt around drum. Reinstall bulk head. Form a loop with the belt at the bottom and place over the motor pulley. Make sure that the idler roller is to the left. Route the loop over and between the motor pulley and idler pulley.
While replacing the drum rollers and front bearing kits, is it a good idea to replace the belt. Also can all of this be done through the front or do I need to pull off the back?
Answer Hello Sean,
If the belt is not showing wear then you would not need to replace it. If it is showing wear you would want to replace the belt and you would do all the work from the front.
makes a rattling sound at start up and is noisy when turning, sounds sort of like a bearing, all original still and @ 13 years old, , I'm pretty handy but it looks like I need to pull out from wall and open the back to work on it. What parts do you recommend to fix?
Answer Hello Sean,
You would only have to pull this unit out a little to be able to raise the top. There are 2 clips in between the cabinet front and top panel that you have to depress to lift top and unplug. Then there are 2 screws, one on either side, holding the front panel on. Remove front panel and front bulk head. Then remove drum. The parts that you would want to replace would be the rollers 12001541. You will also want to check the idler arm and spring.
