SOURCE: Step by step instructions on how to install clothes dryer belt

First you take the top off by opening the door. There are two screws in the top part. Second there are two screws that hold the front on, on both sides. You take them out. Finally, this is a important step, remember how the belt goes back on. The Idler controls the tension on the belt. Next after the tension is remove the drum out. Put the new belt around the drum and then around the motor pulley. Then move the idler to the right I think and the move the belt past the idler and that will gain your tension.

Make sure the felt on the rim of the drum is secure and the plastic glides that the drum sits on are not worn down.

How to put belt back on drum on my dryer


You have to take the back off of the dryer and see the motor pully and the idler pully. slip the belt around the drum, around the mototr pully and usind a flat blade putty knife, work the belt over the idler pully so that it puts tension on the belt. you may have to loosen the idler pully housing bolts, but try it first with working it over the idler as that was set for optimum tension.

Dryer is making a loud noise when running. Sounds like it is coming from belt pully area.


your idler pulley near the motor area is bad,it keeps tension on the belt,usually either a spring steel rod or a bracket with a nylon pulley attached on the end

Loose belt


No, you have an idler pulley which keep tension on the belt. You may have a problem with the idler pully or the belt may be worn or the drive pully slipping.

The idler pulley on an older GE dryer does not tension the belt. The idler pulley is mounted on a spring rod, but the rod's neutral position does not tension the belt. The rod is attached to the bottom of...


Do not bend the rod you are not threading the belt right I had the same problem with one. Try searching the internet for how to thread the belt on a GE dryer. It has to go around the pullys a different way. Hope this helps.

Belt and pully


Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Fixing a gas dryer belt


That I believe is an older model GE with the idler bar instead of the short bar. I believe there is also a rear panel that you can remove to gain access to it. I dont remember for sure if it keeps tension up or down. Loop your belt around the motor pully, then find out which way it keeps tension on the belt, then loop the belt around the idler pully and release so that it keep tension on the belt itself. Let me know if you need further information.

Replaced idle pulley but drum wont spin when clothes are in it


Ok, when you removed the front cover to gain access to the idler pully, did you make sure that the drum didnt slip off one of the two roller wheels in the bottom rear of the dryer. If you get one of those roller wheels jammed and not in the track right, they will jam up. Look down at the bottom, grab the rollers, and pull them forward to be sure they are in the groove of the drum. Also, are you sure you relooped the belt correctly back around the idler pully? The best way to loop the belt is to place the idler pully in the correct position, then drop the belt down in front of it, loop the belt under the idler pully, push it back to tension everything, then take the loop and go over the motor pully (should be pretty tight). See if one of those solutions will help. Also be sure that you are properly getting the drum in the right position over the front seal (front should go on pretty easily, if not, reach your hand in the door, and lift up on the drum to center). Thanks and good luck!!!!
