Unplug the dryer, disconnect
the venting pipe and move
the dryer out into the open,
so it is easier to work on.

Stand in front of the unit
and locate the two top holding
spring clips.

There are two, located near
the outer edge.

Slip a putty knife between
the top seam, and at the
same time pull the front
panel towards yourself.

Do the same with both sides
of the unit.

Pull the front cover towards
you and lift the cover out
of the bottom and away
from the dryer.

There is a screw on the top
of each side panel, near

Next, on the back of the
dryer there is a small panel
near the bottom right
hand side; remove the
holding screw and cover.

Reach inside (take note
of how the idler roller is
positioned on the belt)
and release the belt roller

drum belt; it is under

drum you will see screws
holding the metal screen at
the back inside of the drum.
Remove them and the screen.

it towards you and out of
the machine.

The belt can be replaced
