The belt has a self adjusting idler pully you can not adjust this to make the belt any tighter. just make sure the belt is properly attached.or replace the belt as needed

I need to know how to put the belt on the pulley system of a samsung dryer DV209AEW


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post, you have a Samsung dryer and the belt has come off.


I've seen this many, many times...though the belt usually doesn't break it just comes off. Very common for Samsung dryers for whatever reason.

**Unplug the unit before proceeding...safety first**...


The good news is if you can get to it from the back you can simply remove the small panel around the exhaust tube as shown here,

if it's not accessible from back you'll need to go from the front...that's do-able too, just a little more involved. Let me know.

Once in the back the belt should look like this when routed properly, with the "V" grooves towards the drum and motor pulley.

i.e.

Hope that moves you forward...or even better, fixed up.

Let me know what you find. I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Loose belt


No, you have an idler pulley which keep tension on the belt. You may have a problem with the idler pully or the belt may be worn or the drive pully slipping.

Fixing a gas dryer belt


That I believe is an older model GE with the idler bar instead of the short bar. I believe there is also a rear panel that you can remove to gain access to it. I dont remember for sure if it keeps tension up or down. Loop your belt around the motor pully, then find out which way it keeps tension on the belt, then loop the belt around the idler pully and release so that it keep tension on the belt itself. Let me know if you need further information.
