How Do I Take Apart My Dryer?
ALWAYS UNPLUG THE DRYER BEFORE TURNING EVEN THE FIRST SCREW TO DISASSEMBLE IT. FAIL TO COMPLY, AND YOU WILL FRY. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Have a nice day.

First, pop the hood on that sucker. Here's whatcha see on the inside looking in from the top and here's looking at the guts of the dryer with the drum removed.
- Amana-Speed Queen
First, remove the two screws at the bottom of the front panel. After you've removed the front panel, you'll see four screws that hold on the front drum glide bulkhead. Remove the bulkhead and set it aside--be careful about the door switch wires. To remove the drum, first unstring the belt from the tensioner pulley.

Disassembly is very similar to the Amana-Speed Queen dryer. Remove the two screws at the bottom of the front panel. Remove front panel, and then remove the drum support bulkhead. The front glide set for the drum is shown here. With the bulkhead out, you can access the blower housing. Remove the belt before pulling out the drum. Here's another shot of how the belt is routed. If you need detailed instructions on replacing the belt, this will help. With the drum removed, you can access the rear drum rollers.
- Frigidaire and White-Westinghouse
Pop the top, remove the front panel screws, unstring the belt, and pull out the drum.
