Question about Frigidaire FDE216RE Dryer

Belt replacement - possible missing part

I need a diagram for proper belt installation at motor - I think I may have a part missing that keeps the belt tightened. It is a used dryer that's been in storage. My sister told me the only thing wrong with it was that the belt was slipping. There was a spring laying in the bottom under the motor but didn't appear to be anything to attach it to. She no longer has the manual so I have nothing to look at to attempt to repair it and replace the belt. Can you help?

There are some excellent exploded view illustrations you can use for a reference at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the link on the following page. There is also a zoom feature so you can get closer views if needed.

There are also helpful dryer belt diagrams listed at repairclinic.com. Just click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagram" link on the following page listed under "Special Features". The Fridgidaire diagrams are listed as C, B, and G. You will have to know the age of the appliance to make sure the diagram you are using is accurate. If you do not know the age, please post back with your SERIAL number and I can tell you how old it is. I hope you find this information helpful.

Can't get belt on dryer properly


The routing for the belt should be on a diagram somewhere inside the dryer. It sounds like the belt is not properly routed around the idler/tensioner pulley -- this is a very tricky routing -- without a diagram, it's a bunch of trial and error. Can you find the routing diagram?
