Taking off the front panel of a Samsung dryer is the first step in multiple repair and maintenance procedures. Samsung dryer owners who need to repair or replace the dryer's belt will need to remove the front panel to access the idler pulley and motor shaft to align the new belt. Whether changing a belt or performing a motor troubleshoot, taking the front panel off is an essential part of accessing the inside of the dryer's cabin.


Step 1

Remove the two screws on the top-rear corners of the dryer with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Slide the top panel toward the rear of the dryer and lift it from the unit. Set the top panel aside.
