    I too have looked at this page and it does address this problem. The dryer is only showing one wheel. This diagram distinctly shows two wheels.

The piece you see is called the idler pulley. Here's a link to a good description of how to change a dryer belt. It should show you what you need to do set it all right.

How to replace the belt for a whirlpool ler5620kq1 dryer


It is a very tricky task to put this belt on but I think I can work you through it. When you get the belt around the drum and get to the idler, push the belt under the idler wheel and through the forks of the idler pully assy. attaching it to the pully on the motor. Tension should be on the idler pushing the wheel up toward the drum. Hope this helps.

Can't Put Belt On


You have to remove the front of the dryer to
access the drum. First unplug the dryer.There are screws at the bottom of the front to remove the lower section. Once you remove that you can get to the screws for the door section. The front of the drum rides on the inside of the front panel so when you remove the panel the drum will drop down. Try to keep the drum in place with something to hold it up. Remove the old belt and place the new belt around the drum. Slid the belt back to where the belt used to ride and then loop the belt around the motor and the tension wheel. Make sure the tension wheel is tightening the belt. Hold up the drum and put the front panel back on. You may need a helper to hold things while you do this. Rotate the drum by hand and make sure it moves smoothly. Plug it back in and give it a try. I hope this helps. Any questions feel free to ask. Please rate me so I know if I'm Helping. Thanks.

belts do not figure 8
they look something like this
f6516ed.jpg the front panel comes off, to access the drum without removing bearings etc, and the belt can be placed easily, around the drum and motor pulley.
then pull the tensioner hard against its spring, loop the belt around the tensioner and allow the spring to tension the belt.
