Hi,

You will need to remove the top first and then the front of the dryer.
Once you have the front off it's pretty easy to see what needs to be done.

Just wondering, but how do you know it needs a belt if you have not taken it apart yet?

Here is the diagram for model PYET344AYW
Hope you find our site helpful.

Of coarse you will want to unplug the dryer before you take anything apart.  ;)

You need to have the dryer on a table where you can easily reach in and reconnect the belt; It helps to have a long sleeve shirt on. take care not to cut yourself on sharp edges. My buddy Robert brought by a dryer like yours which is a Norge in design but goes by monkey wards and admiral as well as other brands. I did a video of a blower wheel replacement:

Hey JW,  I like  your video.   The second video was better because you put the video down, so I could see what you were up to.  The 1st video on the dryer blower,  my eyes are still going around hey. ::)     I got a sisser table that goes up and down, and I sit on a doctors stool with wheels hey and do what you were doing.   I like a guy that has fun,  and enjoys what he is doing.  Brent  O0

I got a better camera now. I intend to make a better film when I get the chance. Thanks. It is all about helping the DIY peeps. You know when I first started out I tried to learn from folks in order to advance myself but some of them guys was uppity and proud of what they knew. Maybe they were scared I would get their job. All I knew was delivering appliances for minimum wage and breaking my back was not going to get me anywhere. So I knuckled down and got busy learning everything I could about the trade and passing it along. If you have ever been down and out with low cash and limited knowledge you will understand where I am coming from.

I replaced dryer belt today. It went on very easy, I even showed my 15 yr old how to do it. Once you pop the top off you remove two screws on the inside of front panel. These are located up top just below top of dryer on the inside of front panel. Now remove front panel so you can easally access idle wheel and motor drive shaft pully. Then you need both hands, one to hold idle wheel back and one to place belt on drive shaft pully. Once the belts on then spin drum by hand to make sure it tracks correctly. Thanks for the quick reponse everyone, Mike.
