There should be a 'locking screw or clamp' of some sort holding it in place, suspect this device has 'come loose or dropped off'.
Check and refit if this is the case.

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. You will need to disassembly dryer to check these. Some dryers use rollers in both the front and rear.

Belt

The Belt should be replaced if you hear any noise coming from it or if there is any cracking, glazing, or grooves worn out. Replace it along with the idler pulley.

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 it if necessary. Put hand inside drum near front and push up there should be no play.

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 it when they're worn. Put hand inside drum near rear and push up there should be no play.

Blower wheel

Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermosta ts, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it Many times the blower wheel is making the noise and it is commonly mistaken for the motor.

Motor

The motor may be making noise. The easy way to check is to remove the belt and turn the dryer on if it is noisy replace it

Why dose my washer keep throwing belt


It can be due to problems faced by poor alignment of the motor, pulley and shaft. Also it can be due to worn belt or tight spindle that makes the belt slip over. check the free movement of the spindle and pulley , if not the assembly must be reset.

We have a air flow problem but exaust tube is not clogged no air coming out of bottom of dryer


On this weird dryer the blower is not mounted to the motor. Instead a fancy blower is mounted away from the dryer and requires a second smaller belt to drive it. What goes wrong? The drive pulley for the blower often falls off the motor. Locktite is recommended to keep the blower pulley secure to the motor shaft or this will be the result:

Replacing the drum belt


Hi.
Ensure power is disconnevcted first!
  1. Locate the lid. On both left and right front of the lid you will find a cover. Remove covers and this will gain access to screws (probably will be star shaped heads so a normal philips screw driver wont work.) B&Q will sell them.
  2. slide top backwards. It might need a slight tap as its often tight. Push lid backwards and it should lift off.
  3. Now the drum spindle will be located at the back of the appliance. If the belt is still intact then you have a fault somewhere else. If belt has come off then you will need replacement belt, part number, 1603287
  4. Remove bottom plate, located at back of appliance. here you will see the motor spindle.
  5. This is now the tricky part. The belt is a stretch type so it will appear to be too short but the best way to do this is to put the belt around the motor spindle first. then place around one side of the drum spindle (normally black). If you have a extra pair of hands then as you stretch the belt over the spindle someone else can SLOWLY rotate the drum (by placing their hands inside the drum and holding on to the paddles) and you can then "thread" the belt round. You may need to do this a few times as sometimes the belt slips off.
Good luck.

Simple, there are two options:
1) buy a new pulley from any hardware or home improvement store.
2) If threads are stripped from pulley, either retap with next larger size tap, or redrill new hole and tap with same size as the current size. Note the best way to keep pulley on is to have a set screw over the key and another at 90 degrees from keyway. Note 2 - Are you sure current pulley does have two set screws?
