  • Unplug the dryer and pull it out from the wall.

    Remove the top of the dryer by opening the door and taking out the screws along the top of the opening, then lifting the top. Remove the front of the dryer by reaching down into the opening at the top and taking out the screws holding the front in place. Move the front piece out of the way just enough so you can get to the drum inside, without disconnecting the electrical wires running from the front piece to the unit.

  • 3

    Move to the back of the dryer and remove the screws holding on the small access panel at the bottom. Remove the panel. This will give access to the two pulleys holding the thin belt that runs around the drum. With your pencil and paper, draw a diagram showing exactly how the pulleys are strung. Then slip the belt off the pulleys so it's hanging loosely on the drum.

  • 4

    Return to the front of the dry and pull the belt off the drum from the front. Put the new belt on the drum from the front, laying the ribbed side against the surface of the drum.

  • 5

    Return to the back of the dryer and restring the belt through the two pulleys, using your diagram as a guide. Use your hands to manually turn the drum at least one full turn to make sure the belt is lined up.
    Things You'll Need

    • Screwdriver with multiple bits
    • Pencil and paper

SOURCE: G.E. gas dryer will not heat.

either the moister sensor is bad or the venting needs to be cleaned thoroughly. If clogged full of lint the sensor shuts down the heat until it is cleaned out

I need to know to route my dryer belt on my GE dbrl33ee2ww dryer as the belt slipped off and I did not see the correct path


Hi Roy, W/D here. I wrote this earlier for another person, but it works just as well twice.

You already have the diagram! (Bear with me).

Make sure that your power is off.


If you look carefully at the drum, you can see where the old belt was running.
Place your new belt in that position.
Now, place the belt over the motor pulley (It is in the same plane as the belt position on the dryer).
Pull the tensioning pulley past the belt, and ease it into place.
Roll the drum several revolutions by hand, just to get the belt tracking completely right.
Put it all back together and you're done!
Best regards, --W/D--

General Electric dryer belt broken


Go to www.appliancepartspros.com and put in your model number. They sell new parts. Belts is around $10. Now the hard part trying to install it. This site will also give you a breakdown of the dryer and you can see how to get to the belt. GE pretty muck whole dryer has to be taken apart. Note when removing the front, hold drum in place and put something under it to hold it from falling. You will probably have to remove it anyway to get belt around it.
