Late model Hotpoint dryer

I decided to post this repair because the front glides are different and the front panel is different than earlier models. You pop the top on this puppy, remove 2 screws, and lift the front off. On this style dryer the 3 plastic glides like those found on earlier models are not present. Instead the plastic is mounted on the inside of the drum in a big ring. Over time that thick felt wears down and starts metal to metal squealing and scrubbing. The idler is a late model Frigidaire style. And the rear mount is also that of a late model Frigidaire.


  1. Could you advise what the model number was for this dryer unit?

  2. we have this same dryer and need a belt for it but have no serial number.. Would you know what it is?
