Question about Dryers
Pulley on motor has grooves that must have the belt grooves in them. Make sure that the belt is not kinked but is smooth around drum. Spring tensioner with smooth pulley must take up the slack and keep the drum belt tight. sometimes back access panel is easier than reaching from in front.

After some mild swearing, I made sure that I had the belt around the drum aligned (in the same plane) as closely as I could with the drive pulley and tensioning wheel. I think this was partially achieved by placing the belt as close to that position as possible before lining up the front end of the drum with the cabinet opening, and then turning the drum from the front (through the open door) very slowly clockwise (the direction of its normal rotation) to give the belt "time" to align itself fully with the smaller pulleys. A short prayer and a few minutes later, the machine was humming away with all parts playing their "part" in beautiful harmony - without the dreaded sound of a thin black drive belt cluncking to the floor of the metal cabinet.
