Default Installing replacement dryer belt?
Model Number: MDE216RBD0   Brand: White-Westinghouse   Age: More than 10 years

Hi:

The drum stopped turning in my old White-Westinghouse dryer, but the motor keeps whirring.

I suspected a broken belt. I removed the small rear door for the motor and found a broken belt lying next to the motor. Bingo!

But I have no idea how to remove the rear plating -- or whatever else must be removed -- on the dryer to place a new belt over the drum.

The dryer is old, but it runs just fine. And I have no desire in this economy to spend $300 on a new dryer when all it needs is an $8 belt.

A bit of background on my dryer: The lint trap is located inside the door, not on the top of the dryer. This is an old-school, front-access, 27-inch White-Westinghouse dryer. Probably around 15 to 20 years old.

Can anyone offer any advice on how to install the new belt?

Thanks so much!

Usually the top will come off or can be raised up. Held on by screws or spring clamps you pop up with a screw driver. On some models the front comes off to access the drum.
