Question about Dryers
Taken it apart to replace the motor putting it back together dont know what colour goes to what for the heater
The fat red wires go to the heater in most cases. What is you model number? Can you post pictures? All dryers ain't the same. your ques needs clarification.

If this is a standard dryer with the idler pulley, place the pulley into the slots to the left of the motor pulley. Bring the belt through the idler so it is running on the flat side of the belt and place the belt around the motor. The idler should be placing down pressure on the belt keeping it tight. make sure there are no twists all the way around the drum or it will pop off.

SOURCE: Putting on belt
put it around drum,then around motor pulley, then idler pulley with spring attached to, move it forward and slip belt onto idler pulley and release and belt should become tight,then self align belt by manually turning drum before putting unit together

Here is a couple of websites that shows the breakdown and parts of dryers, maybe they will have your model to help show where the two springs go.
You could also try this website.
I hope this helps

If it is a usual door switch, it is simply OPEN or CLOSED (the switch im talking about ... not the door.) Translation, it doesnt make any difference. When the wires are connected in the switch, the machine thinks the door is closed. When they are apart, the machine thinks the door is open.
Two wires one switch it is a 'switch leg'
If I read this incorrectly, please tell me. (I answer the belt question all the time ... I usually remind people to be careful of the door switch ... )
