Question about Dryers
Removing the back wont help because you can't access the motor, pulleys or rollers from there. You have to remove the front panel which is easier. Make sure you unplug the dryer first, then you can open and tilt back the top, it's just held at the 2 front corners by clips which pop off easily enough. Once you have the top open, unplug the door switch wire connector. There are 2 screws that hold the front panel to the side panels, one on each front corner. When you remove them, the front panel can be pulled off. Before you do that, tilt the dryer on it's back, Use an old blanket or something to pad the back. If you don't tilt the dryer back, when you remove the front panel the drum will drop forward. Once you have the front panel off you can see if it was the belt that broke or a pulley or roller. You can also pull the drum out by lifting straight up.
