Question Drier drum belt how to start in the back or front???
Model Number: dg400axw1   Brand: White-Westinghouse   Age: More than 10 years

I bought the belt I took of the front lil, panel door on the lower left hand side. I took of the vent door panel on the lower left back side. And I took a peek from the top cover where the control panel is located at. I dont know if to change this belt do I need to start in the front where the door is located. Or do I have to loosen the 4 screws that are in the back.. If I do start in the back Im afraid that those screws hold up the drum.. I need help!!!! I need to dry please help!!!! diagrams or blueprints accepted...

Gene has a brilliant futureGene has a brilliant future

Using a putty knife push the clip (# 9 on the console break down diagram)on each side on top of the front panel to release the top panel.

Lift the top panel and remove the screw (#12 on the cabinet break down diagram) on each side of the front panel and wires from the door switch, and remove the front panel.

Remove the access panel on the back of the dryer (#10 on the cabinet break down diagram) and draw the picture of the belt goes on the motor pulley. Remove the belt from the pulleys.

Grab the drum with one hand from the back and another hand from the front, lift it up from the back and pull it toward yourself to release it from the rear bearing and pull it out.
