Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! There is a push nut, shown as number 26 in the diagram at the link below, that keeps the idler pulley on the arm. It is part number 25-7957 if it is missing.
The spring should keep it in place. Is the spring attached as in the picture at the link below?
I hooks to the motor bracket, there is a small hole.
I am incorrect, I just looked on my own dryer. That model does go into the base of the machine, see the picture below. Sorry for the misinformation.
Are you sure you have the belt routed correctly? The belt tension and that spring should take all the play out of the idler assembly. See diagram F at the link below.
If it is overheating, check the blower wheel to be sure it not spinning freely on the motor shaft and that the vent line is clean.
Sounds good, enjoy your vacation!
