Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

How do I put the drive belt back on my yard man automatic riding lawn mower?


The v side of the belt goes in the v of the pullies and the flat side of the belt rides on the flat pullies. It looks like the flat idle pully is bent out of alinement. The one showing in video with no belt on it that is the last pully the belt runs on before returning to engine. The belt comes from the engine to a spring loaded flat pully, to v pully on right of mower ,to v pully on left, to flat idle pully // that looks to be bent // then back to engine. Put belt on all pullies saving the spring loaded pully for last.

1993 doge caravan belt replace


If you need to replace it, the diagram for the belt position should be under the hood near the radiator cap. You need to loosen the tensoiner pully using a socket wrench and and pull and hold the pully up and take the old belt off. To install the new one route the belt back through the pullys and pull the tensioner pully to slide the last part of the belt in place and let the pully down and it will hold the belt in place.

Serpintine belt routing for a 2002 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.9 l engine


this is farely easy to figure out from looking at your pullies. ribbed pullies normaly take the ribbed side of the belt and smooth pullies take the smooth side of the belt. i would start at the tentioner pully (which is smooth) the put the inside of the belt around the 2 nearest pullies and weave it alternating in and out of the rest of the pullies.

Want to fit fan belt cant find the proper way


You have to find the tension pully. using a 3/8 socket wrench. not the socke but the actual wrench. place the square end of the wrench into the notch on the pully and either push or pull (depends on the v-belt system) and it should move. place your v-belt around the pully's according to the diagram under your hood leaving your tension pully to be the last one the belt goes on. Move that tension pully as mentioned above and place it the belt on the pully. The diagram under the hood should also show you where that tension pully is located.

Diagram of pullies and belts on 86 toyota mr2


If you are talking the a/c pulley and alternator pulley, I am pretty sure the belts are different sizes (different number of ribs in the belt). So, you can just look carefully at the ribs and put the right belt on the right pully. from memory, the A/C belt goes on first and all the pullies towards the front of the car are used for that belt. The Alternator belt goes on next, and all the pullies from the crank shaft toward the back of the car (from the crank pulley) go to that. I could have those reversed, but the ribs on the belt will show you for sure. have fun!

Belt won't stay on the pulley


These belts are really sensitive. Try messing around with it. Making srue that the belt isnt coming off the big tub pully. You tub pully isnt loose is it. Make sure the bolt that hold the pully onto the tub is tight on. Make sure the pully isnt loose. Inspect it for any small craks where that boltt tightens up. If the pully check out ok. Check the small motor pully as well. Make sure that isnt loose or anything. Pull on it if if its loose then thats you problem.. Inspect both pullys good. I would assume belt is in good shape right? If both pullys check out ok, then i would try to get the belt on and just mess around with it, spin the pully and if you se the belt starting to slip off adjust it as you keep spinning the pully....hope this helps

The belt that runs the water pump on 1995 Auora


Looks like the belt got hot??? You mean there are shreds of belt material all over the place? If so you have a locked pully somepalce. Replacing the belt is easy, find the diagram of the belt system under your hood. Find the pully that is the tensionor pully. Fine the correct wrench, remove tension, slip of belt from one pulley. remove belt completely, then, since you have shredded belt material, spin each pulley and see which one isn't turning easily. All the pullies will spin easily execpt for the crank. If you have one that's not, well, that one is shot. Needs to be replaced. And if may not just be the pully, might be the accesory which the pulley sits on. Example, water pump, altenator, etc....
