I have a small addition to your instructions for disassembling early model (pre-1990) GE electric dryers. In my case, it was to replace the belt.

After removing the four screws securing the top, and the two screws at the bottom of the front panel, I still couldn’t remove the drum (no clearance). By removing the two screws on the inside top front that secure the front panel, I was able to swing the front panel down to horizontal, and the drum slid straight out.

Thanks for the many tips on your site.

I can’t tell you how happy I am that I ran across your web page. I have been trying for hours to put a new belt on my Maytag dryer and after searching every newsgroup and web page for help I finally found yours! You had exactally what I needed (just a simple picture of how to route the belt). Thanks a lot.
