It hooks in the back 2 set of slots just under the motor assy, with the U- turn portion of the bracket facing to the right, so the belt will be fed through under the roller, and by applying pressure (pushing the roller to the right loop the belt around the motor shaft, and release. tension should now be applied to the belt assy and the idler will be locked in place

There was a pulley at least thats what it looks like laying on the bottom of my dryer how do I fix it to make my dryer spin

hello berna.... that pulley is the idler pulley which keeps tension on the belt which turns the dryer drum. It apparently came unattached or in some cases unbolted. It will have to be put back in position. The dryer belt may also be broken or worn. consiter replacing both the belt and the idler pulley. Joe

Can you show me a diagram of how the idler pulley is supposed to be installed?

Put the belt ribbed side in to drum make a loop and run it under the idler then bend up idler till you can put the loop over the motor pulley.

I'm trying to figure out where part #3346 goes on a roper REX5634. Pretty simple right? But I can't find it anywhere and no where looks obvious. help! Pleeez

if your part number is correct it would be the idler pulley tensioner for the drum belt and installs right next to the dryer motor inside the units lower area to keep belt tension on the drum belt

The belt fell off of the drum, i have the front off but i dont know where the disconnected pulley goes.

Unplug dryer or disconnect power.

Locate mounting slots in front of motor. (In some cabinets, there are two sets of slots for mounting the idler assembly. In this case, mount the idler assembly in the slots that line up under the grooves in the motor pulley.)

Install idler assembly into cabinet base by hooking mounting tab (A) into 1⁄4" wide mounting slots and setting mounting tabs (B) into the 3⁄16" wide mounting slot.

Make sure belt is around drum, with grooves down.

Route belt through the idler and around the motor pulley.

Idler pulley came loose and I need schematic so I can put it tog

the idler pulley fell out of its slot or it broke into pieces
if it just fell out of the slot you should take out the drum and just kind of play with it  depending on the dryer if you gave me your model i can take a look  and i dont know what kind of idler pulley you have so i am not much help AT ALL without it i;m sorry
