ok well your pull asm. has one part that fits in smaller slot and there should be two prong like things one bottom they sit in the other slot. if you go to you can see how the belt runs through pulley and around motor pulley. at top of page go to repair help and then dryer belt diagrams . yours should be diagram H and you can see where it sits in comparison to motor. hope this helps, like I said I do allot of these but you get so used to it you realy don't even pay attention to slots much. thanks again Bryan
