  3. 4) Remove the 3 wires (one 12ga black, one 12ga orange, one 14ga bl/bk). Check the resistance across the heater terminals - it should be around 10 ohms. Also Check for burned connectors.

    • The drum retainer plate is now exposed. It can be removed by removing 4 screws around the edges and lifting it off.

    • Note the two tabs and slots near the lower screws.

    • At this point the belt can be replaced by slipping a new one over the drum and attaching it to the tensioner and belt pulley.

    • Be very careful that the belt is not twisted and it is close to the wear track on the drum where it was running.

    • Turn the drum slowly by hand to ensure everything runs smoothly.

    • If replacing a belt, you are done. Reassemble.

  9. Otherwise, remove ONE screw securing the top of the dryer to the sides to give it a little vertical clearance on the drum and lift the drum out.

    • The top of the dryer will still be attached by the wiring harness but can be set aside far enough to get access for the next operation.

    • The back plate is now exposed. There 4 screws around the edges holding it in as well as two more in the upper right corner securing the dryer power cord terminal block and a ground wire.

    • There is also one connector going to the neutral on the power cord terminal block (make sure you reconnect it to neutral!).

    • After all these are disconnected the back plate will lift out.
