Question about Kenmore Elite Oasis ST 6807 Dryer
After taking front off to clean lint vent I found a belt and a small pulley like object unattached to anything. The drum belt is attached what could this go to
This belt and pulley are what spins the fan.Which explains why it is not pumping air.What you will need to do is take the whole front off flip up the top and remove the drum.at that point you will see a fan housing on the bottom directly under where the drum was.you need to screw that pulley you found back on to the fan shaft and run the belt that you found from the fan pulley to the front of the drive motor.Then reinstall the drum and drum belt and it's good as new.a good thing to do would be to use some loctite when screwing the fan pulley back on so it will not fall apart again.another little tip is that pulley has a reverse thread so you will need to screw it on counter clockwise.Also on most models with this type of fan you need to get to the drum belt from the back of the dryer to remove and install the drum belt

I figured this one out...there are two pairs slots...the tab of the idler pulley goes in the right slot near the motor and the idler pulley goes off to the left.

The belt has groves, right? Make sure the groves go over the motor pulley from the right. The idler pulley is spring loaded. Place the belt around the idling pulley with the smooth side of the belt on the pulley. This should work.

With the front cabinet panel off, place the drum against the back and on the rear rollers. The roller on the right will sometimes move toward the rear so reach from underneath and pull it forward. The rollers should sit in the groove. The drum will tilt forward but shouldn't fall off. Route the belt around drum, pulley and motor. Tilt the drum back and support it while placing the front panel back onto it's hooks. With the front panel on (don't screw it on yet), rotate the drum by hand to make sure the seal is not kinked and the belt won't slide off the pulley or motor. If all is well screw in the front panel and re-assemble the rest.
