Question about Dryers
IF IT IS A WHIRLPOOL DRYER, A FEW YEARS BACK THEY CHANGED THE IDLER PULLEY FROM A WHEEL DESIGN TO A TEFLON GLIDE. THIS DIDN'T WORK AND THEY HAVE GONE BACK TO THE PULLEY DESIGN. IC THE BELT BROKE OR BURNED IN TWO, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE BELT AND IDLER TOGETHER. GAIN ACCESS BY REMOVING TWO SCREWS UNDER THE LINT FILTER. LIFT OUP THE DRYER TOP AND REMOVE ONE SCREW FROM EACH FRONT CORNER HOLDING THE FRONT TO THE SIDES. THEN TILT THE FRONT OUT AND LIFT OFF OF THE BOTTOM SUPPORTS. NOW YOU HAVE ACCESS TO EVERYTHING.
REMOVE THE DRUM AND INSPECT THE IDLER. IT SETS BELOW THE MOTOR PULLEY AND KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT.
