I have a Crosley dryer.. The lint trap is in the door which puts the blower wheel on the bottom right in the front.. I recently tried to reattach the belt and the spring that attaches to the pully arm came...

Thank you for your inquiry, Mary D. Gage!

I understand that you are having a challenge with your Crosley dryer. From what you are describing it sounds like a possible problem with your pulley or shocks. I would recommend having a professional technician diagnosis your dryer and repair it. This can help avoid any unnecessary part purchases or future problems. -Matt

Needs to be hooked on to motor so there is lots of tension pulling on the motor.if i remember correctly there is a long thin bolt holding the motor together and this is the place to attach spring. Hope this helped Tim

As I was cleaning my crosley dryer modle cde600w I let the drive belt idler arm relax and the spring came off.Now how do you put it back in place?Can you HELP!!! Thank you.


The idler arm attaches to the base, and the spring attaches to the arm, and then the frame. You'll pull the arm past the belt, and then relax your tension, and transferring the tension to the belt.

Model CDE6500w\r\nI am having trouble reinstalling the belt over the tightener. Where is the tightener spring to be hooked to supply tdhe tension?

On these dryers it is best to have the dryer on a platform. Or a truck tail gate. Remove the brace. The ribs go towards the drum. Do not have the belt twisted or it will be cut in 2. Reach in with your left hand and grab the idler. Pull it right to left till it is under the motor pulley. Use your fingers to loop the belt over the idler and under the motor pulley and let is loose. The belt is held with the idler pulling back towards the right. Give the drum a few turns to make sure it ain't twisted. I have a camera now I can connect to my PC. One day my friends will bring one of there dryer over here and we will have some pictures my friend. If you have skinny arms you can get into the the right hand side to help hold that pesky idler whilst yall fit that belt all propah. best of luck to yall.

Crosley dryer Cdes563sq0 if i turn the timer on befor i push the start button the heat will start but the moter dose not start.even after the button is pushed.

It sounds like there is a problem with the motor/belt. If you can get the top up, mine you have to push in two clips between the lid and the body about two inches in from the right and left sides, you can look down into the machine to see if the belt is still on track or if the motor is turning. I had one dryer that the belt would come off the spring tensioned idler pulley. Best of luck

Belt tensioner/bar not enough tension

Check closely where the idler bracket was at and also the spring location.
You look for a worn area on the frame of the dryer and also the worn area on the idler arm bracket. Once you locate the right place for them to go, then put your spring on and check to see where it may hook up, there should be a small worn spot to look for...Just remember that the spring will be under tension when it is hooked up. So look for an area that would be worn with the spring stretched out somewhat.
I will send you a website to check also, they have schematics of dryers and they may be able to show you the approximate location of the bracket. or try this one...
Good Luck,
I hope this helps.

My belt came off my dryer, Help!

You should have a "tension pulley" that the belt goes around somewhere in the belt track. Usually a "wheel or pulley mounted on a spring" which looks like a flat piece if metal. Check to see if it has come out of its positon or the flat spring has broken. You can buy replacements if it has. Simply reposition the belt and push the tension pulley in such a way as to engage the belt correctly. That should fix it.
