I figured this one out...there are two pairs slots...the tab of the idler pulley goes in the right slot near the motor and the idler pulley goes off to the left.

First, assuming you have the drum out, there are two slots on the bottom plate of the dryer, hook the end of the idler pulley into the left slot with the angle as you look at it up and to the left. as you set the pulley in place the second slot will match the prongs of the idler pulley. With the idler in place, now put your belt around the drum (you should see a polished spot where the original belt rode and wore off the paint). Then use the belt to help guide the drum install. Set the drum on the rollers in back, keeping the drum level to the dryer. It helps if the whole dryer is tipped back against a wall at about a 45 degree angle to get the drum in place, but that makes your aligning the belt a pain at the same time. I suggest have the dryer at an angle to put the drum in then place it level to align the belt.
You'll need to use both hands to get the belt in place. First thread the belt under the idler pulley wheel in the opening under it. Next you'll need to push the idler wheel as far up and to the right as you can to get the tension all the way off as you hook the belt around the motor. Once on the motor, slowly let the idler down into place.
If everything is aligned correctly it will work just fine. Just make sure when you put the bulkhead in again that the drum rides on top of the slider pads and that the drum rotates freely with only the motor tension on it.
