The traction tension idler spring on my Husky s/b is broken. I can see where it attaches to the idler bracket, but where does the other end of the new spring attach?

SOURCE: broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher


Please read our safety information before attempting any testing or repairs. Before repairing the door springs, unplug the dishwasher or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
The door opens and closes with the aid of springs. If the springs (or the cables that connect them on some dishwashers) break, the door will drop open hard. The door will also be heavier when closing. If the door drops open, it may also bend the door hinges out of shape resulting in a door that does not close properly and possibly leaks.

When replacing the springs or cables, all of them should be replaced at the same time.
To access the door springs and cables remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to get to the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
There are two common types of spring assemblies. One type connects the springs from a hook on the dishwasher cabinet of to a tang on the door hinge .

SOURCE: 609 yard machine tractor idler pulley spring broke

Here's a diagram, not a great copy, but it may help:

The spring hooks to the idler arm on the opposite end from where the pulley is mounted. The other end of the spring looks like it hooks to a raised tab on the deck, straight behind the left mower spindle. Hope this helps you, please rate my solution if so, thanks!

SOURCE: Broken manual clutch cable

You can go to and put you units model number in and order the cable yourself. They can ship it right to your house and you can swap the cable yourself with just simple hand tools.

You can see the details on the idler attachment in the parts schematic when you are ordering your new cable.

Good luck and be careful!

SOURCE: broken door spring on kitchenaid dishwasher

kitchenaid should be made to recall all of these dishwashers that have that string holding door since it could pose a hazzard to children. They should be made to put in a metal cable at no cost to the consumer

Replaced a broken auger control cable on my 536.881400 snow thrower, but now the auger engage lever cannot be fully pulled back.

possible that is the problem
see if you can move the end of the cable closer down the handle (control lever) to give it enough length
check how you fitted the cable and the spring may fit in a hole on the other side of where you put the cable end

Auger handle stays all the way down and does not work. I also noticed the bearings bracket is broken

The bracket that has the Idler Pulley is broken? Well that's why it doesn't work. Not sure what the real question is.
If the Bracket was intact, I would have guessed a Broken Spring that attaches to that bracket has broken

Mtd manual

MTD uses several different configurations. Electric PTO's are tensioned all the time by an idler pulley on a spring loaded bracket. Manual PTO's with an engagement lever have a movable bracket attached to the lever via a cable that will tension the belt when the lever is engaged. Another configuration is the deck engages when the deck is lowered with the deck height lever and disengaged when the deck is raised. In this case the belt is tensioned by a large spring from the rear deck support bracket to a mount on the transaxle and tension is released by a rod that pull the deck forward when it is raised.

Shu43 cycle runs normally but at the end it continues to fill - and then drain. continues to do that till inlet water is turned off.

underneath are 2 L-brackets with the springs attached. Pull those out (with the door closed) and tension will be released. Shorten the strings attached to the springs and reinsert the L-brackets.

The dryer turns on and heats up but the drum will not turn. the belt is on but I can pull it up about 6 inches. Why won't it work?

Your belt has slipped off of the idler pulley or the spring that puts tension on the idler pulley bracket is broken or came off of the bracket.
I will send you a link to a website to help you out on the routing of the belt.

Dryer is making a loud noise when running. Sounds like it is coming from belt pully area.

your idler pulley near the motor area is bad,it keeps tension on the belt,usually either a spring steel rod or a bracket with a nylon pulley attached on the end

Belt tensioner/bar not enough tension

Check closely where the idler bracket was at and also the spring location.
You look for a worn area on the frame of the dryer and also the worn area on the idler arm bracket. Once you locate the right place for them to go, then put your spring on and check to see where it may hook up, there should be a small worn spot to look for...Just remember that the spring will be under tension when it is hooked up. So look for an area that would be worn with the spring stretched out somewhat.
I will send you a website to check also, they have schematics of dryers and they may be able to show you the approximate location of the bracket. or try this one...
Good Luck,
I hope this helps.

I have tension spring that is disconected inside a toro 824 snowb

That spring will attach itself to just about anything available. So put some hand tension on the idler pulley of the tensioner, and make an arc with the end of the spring, and there should a tab or bolt or post that the spring could attach to.
