Question about Haier HLP140E Electric Portable Dryer
I NEED HELP TO PUT THE DRUM BELT BACK ON MY HAIER DRYER. THE REPAIR MAN I HAD COME IN GOT SO ANGRY AFTER A CALL FROM HIS EX, HE TOOK THE CHECK FOR WHAT WORK HE DID AND SAID 'I QUIT, NO MORE WORK MEANS NO MORE MONEY FOR THE EX'. LEAVING ME STRANDED TO PUT A BELT BACK ON, I KNOW THIS MUCH.....THE BLACK THINK BELT GOES AROUND THE DRUM...I CAN TRACE THE MARKS WHERE IT HAS BEEN...BUT I DO NOT KNOW HOW WHERE THE BELT GOES AFTER THAT.....THERE IS A WHILE PULLY AND A BLACK PULLY.I CAN SEE THAT ORANGE BELT I REPLACED IS ON THE BLACK PULLY....WHEN I PUT THE DRUM BELT OVER THE DRUM THEN AROUND THE WHITE PULLY THERE IS STILL SO MUCH SLACK....IS THERE SOMEWHERE ELSE THIS GOES AROUND ALSO LIKE ANOTHER PULLY? THANKS....I NEED THE HELP ASAP....PLEASE!!!!
There should be two pulleys and the drum. **I am not a certified appliance repairman. Please make sure you have disconnected the power source before servicing the unit** You should see a pulley that is attached to the electric motor that actually makes the belt spin and the drum turn. The motor will have electrical wiring attached that you shouldn't touch. The other pulley is called a tensioner pulley and should be spring loaded to add enough tension to the belt once it is routed properly. To work correctly, the belt has to go around the drum, around the motor's pulley, and then across or around the tensioner pulley so that there is no slack in the belt and enough tension to turn the drum. Does that make sense? It is hard to say the exact routing of the belt without seeing a picture but that is how it has worked on all the dryers I've ever repaired. Hope this helps!

The other pulley is spring loaded it puts tension on the belt.
Pull the pulley back and the belt will slip ight over then release the tension pulley and your done!
