Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
The other day my boyfriend took the back off of the dryer to try and find his keys. They weren't there of course, but when he put it back together he didn't put all of the screws back in. I'm not sure if that had anything to do with it or not, but soon after when we tried to use the dryer the drum wouldn't turn. I decided to take it apart and see if i could figure it out. When I did I found one of the pulleys had fallen off somehow and was resting on the bottom. The belt is still intact and loosely resting around the drum, not attached to anything. I have found virtually nothing on the internet on the assembly of this model so if anyone could help me with putting this back together I'd really appreciate it.
here is an exploded view of the dyer, and you can see where the pulley came off.part number 24 are the pulleys.
another picture is for the belt and the tensioner
part number 53 is the tensioner and part number 56 is the belt.
it just tricky on how to put the belt.
first put the pulley back to its location then slowly insert the drum to the dryer while putting the belt around the drum with the grouve of the belt facing the drum.
have a helper hold unto the drum , in place, then lean underneath towards the motor and put the tensioner to its slot at the flooring, just like in the drawing, then insert part of the belt under the pulley of the tensioner then with your left hand, hold the tensioner pulley and with your right hand, grab the belt which you inserted under the pulley, and bend the tensioner towards the right with your left hand while the right hand is pulling the belt towards the motor until the belt loops to the motor's pulley.
i hope i was able to explain that one.
that is really tricky to put on.
tnx 4 using fixya,
