Default Dryer belt access
Model Number: LDE7304ACE   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I can't figure out how to get the top of the dryer off so that I can replace the belt. I can put a screwdriver under the top, between the top and the side, on any corner and lift the top about 1/2 inch or so, but something seems to be stopping it from coming up. It's as if I should be lifting and sliding the top at the same time, but that doesn't work. If that's how it's done, where do I lift (front? rear?) and which direction do I slide it? Thanks for your help.

Default Thanks, got another question

Thanks for pointing me to that, it was exactly what I needed. In the course of getting at the belt, I discovered that the blower wheel is worn and should also be replaced. That's on order. When I install the new one, should I put a little lithium grease (or some other lubricant) on the shaft? The service manual makes no mention of any lubricant, unless I missed that part, but I wonder if it would help prevent wear of this plastic wheel. Thanks again for your help.

The blower wheel looks like the clamp on type so do not use any lubricant.
