This sping connects to the pulley and a small hook or hole on the motor mount in order to keep tension on the drum belt

Dryer belt is loose, how to adjust tension in idler arm?


It sounds like you didn't install the belt onto the idler pulley in the correct S-shape. The idler pulley should always keep the belt tight under spring tension (no adjustment screws).
Here is a video, and tho it is a completely different model, almost all dryer belts/pulleys are installed in this manner. You can skip to the 2:30 to 2:45 time frames, where it then shows exactly how to re-install the belt on the idler pulley.

if you rapped the belt around the pulley and it's not tight enough then you popped the spring off of the pulley,you'll have to pull the drum again so you can see where the spring connects to the pulley,here's the sears site,put your model number in,click on cabinet parts and you'll see number 15 tention spring,this has to be connected to the pulley arm.http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Amana-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-NGD7200TW10/1268/0151200/W0712024/00002?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

The belt has come off the dryer and I can't figure out the configuration to put it back on, therefore the dryer wont turn


Some of the belts are counterintuitive to reinstall. although there are several different styles there are usually four - five components: Drum, belt, motor pulley and the spring pulley (sometimes there is a also a stationary pulley). Please double check but a lot of dryers have a diagram inside the dryer housing. If not, place the belt around the drum then the stationary pulley (if equipped) then the motor pulley and finally the spring pulley. Try to support the drum loosely if the spring pulley gives you a problem, on some models the motor mounts are adjustable, which you can use to reduce the strain. (You can always adjust it after the drum and pullies are secure) Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Hi.. I have a model FDE7970EW1. The three screws


It sounds like when it fell it hit the heating element in the back and shorted it out. I'm not sure what exactly would act to prevent an overcurrent situation in that case. This is a new one to me -- they don't usually just fall off! Anyway, I'd start with checking the thermostats and thermal fuses for continuity (with it unplugged, of course!) Also, the one power wire to the heating element runs through contacts in the motor. If they burned out, that could do it too. To see a schematic and parts list, go to www.appliancepartspros.com
Good luck.

Idler spring came off when belt broke, not sure correct placement for spring and idler pulley


Takes patients but can be done. First place idler arm in position then connect spring. Try and hold firmly while you place belt through pulley and fold around motor shaft. If installed right ,the pulley will maintain a constant pressure on the belt.

the best way i can tell you is open the back put the belt on the motor then visually pull the tension pulley back and put the belt on the tension back on the belt. if you are changing the belt you must touch the spring.let me know how it goes.

Replacing maytag dryer belt


looking at the back of the motor where the belt pulley is you would grasp belt coming down from the left side of drum then come across the top of belt pulley that is on motor shaft going clockwise around that pulley then continue back to your left and over the top of belt tension pulley going counterclockwise around that pulley this is when you will have to raise pulley against spring pressure to get belt on then release belt tension pulley make sure that belt is still in belt groove on the drum hope this helps ed

Belt tension


there is a spring-loaded belt tensioner pulley. make sure it is part of the belt loop. you will need to move the tensioner pulley against the spring force then place belt on tensioner pulley and then release the tensioner pulley and belt will now be tight.
