Hi,

Enter your model number in the top left corner search box to find the diagram.

Looks to me like the top and front should be removed to work on this dryer.

Maybe one of our G.E. techs will be along soon to say for sure.

GE does not hand out manuals so we can't show you anything in print. This is yet another reason we just love them to death, bless their heart.

I have a video demonstration of how to open the dryer to access the belt and motor. Unfortunately it's a rather large (15 MB) file and you'll take awhile downloading it if you're on dialup.

Thank you very much it is a great video and took me only 2 minutes to watch.
Do you have same thing for inside the dryer to show the back bearing and side belt pulley replacement video because when I checked inside I have a feeling that the pulley is broken from the front. one more time the video was very clear I wish I had seen that before I tried and opened all the screws I broke one yellow wire from door panel wiring.
Thanks
Adam

The video covers all standard GE dryers similar to the one shown in the demo. Some have electronic controls, others do not. This is a general repair video, not a model-specific manual. Yours is included in the design platform. This particular CD lso contains the matching washer videos.

Put the screws back on the back side. You work from the front on this dryer. Open the door and look up inside the frame,remove the phillips head screw on each side that holds down the top. Then the top can come off. Then you remove 2 screws that hold the front on. Once that is out of the way, you get the drum out.  Do not remove the screws inside the drum. This part mounts on the back of the drum.
