I am trying to follow directions on removing the drum inorder to replace rear drum bearing and idler pulley assy. They say to simply pop the top, Unscrewand remove front cover - all which I did easily. Than it says to slide belt off which I have disengaged and FINALLY to PULL the DRUM out to the front.

Well - I CAN NOT pull the drum out o the front! I wiggle it and pull to no avail!

Please someone what isthe trc here? It feels attached at theback by the bearing. I have no idea how to get it to come out so that I can relace those parts.

Ca anyone help ? I have the dryer out in the driveway and my replacemet parts are in hand - How do I detatch the drum and pull it out?

THANKS so much.

you need to lift the rear of the drom upward as it is like a trailer hitch and ball at the back

Got It!!Thats all it took  Thank You

Man is the inside of this dryer DIRTY.

I do have one last question if someone can answer  - That is exacty how do you get the belt back on properly when you slide the drum back in - That is the only thing that looks like it may be a little bit tricky!

THANKS, Melvin

You do that from the 12" square access panel in back or if you've done enough of them and know how things work you can do it blind from the front by just reaching in under the drum to the idler pulley and belt and doing it by feel/blind.

Need to mention, if the inside of the dryer is full of lint, you may have a serious external venting problem. Dryers are designed to create a vacumm inside the drum, vent partial blockage will prevent this.
