Question about Kenmore 62622 Electric Dryer
I have the Kenmore series 80 Dryer and Ihave taken the face off and removed the Drum. I wanted to clean everything while relacing the belt. However I have stumbled....there is what appears to be a tensioner laying in the bottom of the casing. When I get the new belt is this tensioner to be used? I don't see how the belt fits through this,since its a sealed tensioner. I can fit it over the drum and the motor pulley only! Please advise and thank you.
To fit the new belt, you will need the idler pulley (tensioner)...
The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, pull it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).
If you still need help, I will try to provide you with a diagram shortly.

Place the idler in the floorboard with the pulley to the left. Ease the non twisted belt under the pulley inside the idler, raise up on the idler, loop the belt on the motor pulley and let the tension hold as shown HERE

I Was killin' myself over this. The thing on the bottom is the tensioner. If you pull a loop from the left to right through the hole in the tensioner it pulls the tensioner up and the two belt pieces seperate to form your tensioner. hope I explained a lil' better for you.
