This wheel is secured to the idler mechanism by a shaft bolt through the idler wheel and a nut,either the pulley center is oversize from age or the nut is missing from the bolt

Dryer belt is loose, how to adjust tension in idler arm?


It sounds like you didn't install the belt onto the idler pulley in the correct S-shape. The idler pulley should always keep the belt tight under spring tension (no adjustment screws).
Here is a video, and tho it is a completely different model, almost all dryer belts/pulleys are installed in this manner. You can skip to the 2:30 to 2:45 time frames, where it then shows exactly how to re-install the belt on the idler pulley.

There are many styles and different models of dryers but the one thing they all have in common is the dryer has a belt that turns the drum.In the procedure below we will show you how to take apart your dryer,change your belt,and show you the correct threading of your belt.

Each different model dryer also has a different lint trap location. This location will have a bearing on how your dryer is taken apart and how to change your belt.

Note the location of your lint trap and choose the correct video on how to take your dryer apart. There are two different locations,on top,and in the door.

My dryer has a loud squeaking noise it is a frigidaire dryer model num AEQB6000ES2


Hello there and welcme to fixya
This is a fairly common problem with these dryers
please check each of the following you will probably have to remove the outer shell to get axcess to these parts listed below
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. Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

Frigidaire dryer model # FDEB34RGS2 Squeaking


There is a tension pulley that holds pressure on the belt, as well as wheels that the drum sits on. A drop of oil on the bearing of each one should solve the problem, unless the wear has gotten too far, and need replacing.

Where can I locate the blown fuse/s of a frigidaire dryer?


There are no user servicable fuses in the machine, I believe they are talking about your breaker box.
A 220 dryer requires two 110 volt circuits to run the 220 volt heater
The motor and control circuits only require 110 and are run from only one of these two lines. If the other line blows the dryer will still run but there will be no heat.
Good Luck

Changing the belt on Frigidaire GLER642


ok here we go facing the drier take a putty knife come about 1-2 inches from the edge and push in should feel a spring clip depress in lift one side then the other look inside on the front panel and remove the two 5/16 inch screws grasp the front and snap it off give it a good tug then your ready to go be sure to un plug the drier and slide it out from the wall so you can tilt the top back before removing the front don't forget my 4 boxes and make sure the idler pulley is on the belt the the belt goes around the drum around the motor pulley then you pull the idler pulley back and put the belt on top of the idler pulley let it back against the belt to keep the belt tight you do not have to remove the drum for this can all be done from the front
