Question about Dryers
My old dryer belt snapped, so I went to Sears and bought a new one. The part number on the belt matches the old one exactly. I installed it correctly (which I've double checked about 15 times) and the belt seems to be just an inch or so too loose. It will move the drum some, but you can tell there's not enough tension. I measured the new belt to the old belt and it seems like it might be a shade smaller. Am I missing something or do I need to find another belt? Thanks!
Is the idler pulley have enough tension on it,the tensioner on these can get bad and not put enough tension on the belt,push on it,it should take some force to move it,if you can get your fingers under the belt around the drum without much effort then replace the idler pulley and tensioner
