Question about Dryers
I opened the DE550 electric dryer in order to clean it out . I took off the back cover ,loosened the drum and the belt in order blow out the loose fluff. The white belt tensioning pulley was then loose and so I removed it from its mounting on the motor base . Now after cleaning and refitting the drum in position I find that I am unable to refit the pulley as I can't see how the wire pulley support it is to be mounted onto the base of the motor. Can you help please........ Pensioner DIY Guy

Don, the drum on this model rotates on a bearing in back. This is most likely where the sqeeling is comming from. You will have to service this from the front. Should be 2 screws just above the door on each side. Remove them and the top will lift up. Slide the top off forward. Once the top is off, you will see a couple of screws holding the the front panel and door assy. on. One on each side inside front panel. Unplug the door harness and remove the front panel and door. Undo the belt and the drum should pull straight out. Watch out not to get the belt hung on the motor. Now you will see the rear bearing and shaft bracket that the drum rides on. It may need to be replaced or just lubed up real good. Catriver.

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.

To fit the new belt, you will need the idler pulley (tensioner)...
The idler pulley fits in the slots on the bottom of the cabinet (in front of the motor) with the wheel or glide facing the left side. Place the belt (grooves inward) around the drum. Pull the belt through the middle of the idler pulley from the left side. Once the belt is pulled through the idler pulley, pull it around the motor pulley (this should force the idler pulley to "open up" and add tension).
If you still need help, I will try to provide you with a diagram shortly.
