Need a drum belt sent to the UK
« on: December 20, 2008, 01:45:27 PM »
Hi all,

I'm in the UK and I have a GE Dryer DISQ493DT.  A while ago, the dryer was 'injured in action' and after describing the symptoms on a forum in the UK, I was referred to this site who advised me that the belt had broken.  

Anyway, had a guy round, he confirmed that the belt had indeed broken and went on his merry way saying he'd be back when he got the part.  It seems he's having a problem getting the belt for my dryer and suggested I also try to get the part from my contacts.

Does anyone on here recommend a supplier that will mail me the belt after I arrange payment?

Would really appreciate your help again, you came up trumps last time.

Happy holidays everyone.

Sharon

I provide service to the UK, but I need the GE part number for your belt first.

Hi Repair-man,

It was you who helped me find out what was wrong with my dryer in the first place.  You sent me a diagram at the time.  Thanks by the way.

I'll call my guy on Monday and get the part number.  In the meantime, I'll dig out the manual, you never know, it might be in there.

I'll PM you on Monday after I get the part number. 

Thank you so much.  Have a good weekend.

Sharon

If not, I would be willing to bet that our associate "Penguin" can help here. Does anyone know how to turn on the Bat Signal, er...Penguin Signal?

Thanks, Peng, but this machine is not commercial, nor does JLA cross-reference GE. Hopefully this person's repairman will have the part number..
