Start by removing the three screws securing the control panel trim to the front panel. The forward facing screws are located behind the control panel just above the top. Once removed, slide the trim to the left and set it aside. Looking straight down you will see two screws holding the top to the cabinet.

Looking down at the control panel, remove the two screws that secure the control panel assembly to the cabinet. The screws are located all the way to the left and the right holding the control panel to the cabinet. Now disconnect the control panel ribbon cable from the power board mounted on a bracket above the drum.


Then set it off to the side. To gain access to the dryer belt you will need to separate the blower housing from the cabinet. To do this remove the screw that holds the blower housing to the left side of the cabinet. Next remove the left side screw of the control board bracket that secures it to the cabinet. This will allow you to spread the cabinet apart slightly allowing just enough room for your hands and arms. This is where the long sleeve shirt and gloves come in handy. Now you can spread the cabinet open slightly.

This creates the gap between the tub and cabinet needed to manipulate the dryer belt and idler Both hands need to be in position and the belt tension will need to be released before the belt can be removed. This is actually a tricky maneuver. You have to position your left hand between the drum and the left-hand side of the cabinet and slide it rearward slightly past the motor to access the dryer blower idler pulley. Now using your left hand push the idler toward the center of the dryer relieving the spring tension. With your right hand slid along the right side of the blower and motor, you can position it to grab the idler and lock it into a predrilled hole in the motor mounting bracket.
