You must have the older style pulley that's all metal with no wheel.rap the belt around the drum,on the side where the pulley is pinch the belt together stick it under the half moon part of your metal pulley and stick the looped end around the motor shaft,if i were you i'd call the place where you bought the belt from give them the model number and order a belt kit,you get the belt,the rollers and the pulley with the wheel not that metal **** piece and replace it,you get all those parts for short money,cheaper than buying them seperate or use it for now until it starts getting noisy.let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help let me know

How to replace the belt for a whirlpool ler5620kq1 dryer

It is a very tricky task to put this belt on but I think I can work you through it. When you get the belt around the drum and get to the idler, push the belt under the idler wheel and through the forks of the idler pully assy. attaching it to the pully on the motor. Tension should be on the idler pushing the wheel up toward the drum. Hope this helps.

Show me how the belt should be run

Stick the idler in the floorboard, even with the motor pulley and have the idler wheel facing to the left of that motor pulley. Insert the non twisted belt into the idler between the cheapass metal idler pulley mount(have yer woman hold that drum up, make her proud to assist) and now yank back on the idler good nuff to get that belt looped over that motor pully. Then let that idler go so the tenshun on dat boy cause dat belt to stay all propah on dat pulley. Replace that front panel. 05cc3f4.jpg

Replaced idle pulley but drum wont spin when clothes are in it

Ok, when you removed the front cover to gain access to the idler pully, did you make sure that the drum didnt slip off one of the two roller wheels in the bottom rear of the dryer. If you get one of those roller wheels jammed and not in the track right, they will jam up. Look down at the bottom, grab the rollers, and pull them forward to be sure they are in the groove of the drum. Also, are you sure you relooped the belt correctly back around the idler pully? The best way to loop the belt is to place the idler pully in the correct position, then drop the belt down in front of it, loop the belt under the idler pully, push it back to tension everything, then take the loop and go over the motor pully (should be pretty tight). See if one of those solutions will help. Also be sure that you are properly getting the drum in the right position over the front seal (front should go on pretty easily, if not, reach your hand in the door, and lift up on the drum to center). Thanks and good luck!!!!
