While I search my archives for the drawings you need to try tipping the unit and see if the rest of the tensioner is still rolling around inside. If it is it may still be useable.
I'll be back shortly
This question is still open to the other experts so if one of them have the pictures they can reply and get you going faster.
Ok here we go
To access the inside you need to first take the two screws out ot the lint filter. tThen use a putty kniife to pop the front of the top up from the chassis. Tilt tit back and then in the top of the units front are two screws that you loremove from the frnt panel to remove it. You can now remoove the drum and acccess thetentioner roller assembly.
If the unit has a thing dticking out the bacl that looks worn out you need to replace it and the casrrier assembly it rides in. This is the main support bearing for the drum.
While you are in there check the felt and replace as needed.
If the idler is not in there you need to get another,. The belt is installed over the motor pully and under the idler then brought up around the drum as you put it bacl in.
Reassemble in reverse order and thwere you are.

One minuit I maty have the wrong model
Ok does your unit have a lower panel in the front of it?
Ok The reason I seem a bit confused is because the unit you have is a rebranded Kelvinator OR a whirlpool. They do not specify which. So please bear with me. If I could see your unit it would be a no brainer but im sort of like the three blind men trying to describe the elephant to each other at the moment.
Ok front solid lint screen in door Gotcha Be right back.
I do have the belt routing diagram You may need it
Ok have a look at this drawing and see if it is the same door you have
Here is the rest of the breakdown
When you go to take the drum out you need to lift the drum off the mounting braket in the rear CAREFULLY! You dont want to damage the heater coils.
Ther rest of the directions are as posted above (except the lint screen)
Let me know if you have any more questions
Kelvinator frigidair Sorry
Link to the 417 code here
Also if the belt coming off was caused by the move you will most likely have a drum tat is off the main rear bearing and may have damaged the coils. See if you can spin the drum by hand. If not oy os off the bearing and complete removal of the drum will be needed.
That is definatly not good. Look at it carefully and see if it appears like it has been cut off at one end. Like someone used a file to trim it from a shaft it was attached to.
Never minfd ... that is part #5 in the main break down. The drum will have to come out.
