I won't get into too much of the tear down, as others have already given, in great detail, that information. I will say if I had not read the other repair information, I would not have known to replace the tensioner wheel, otherwise called the Idler pulley wheel and bearing. After using some machine oil to grease the shaft, I replaced the Idler Pulley wheel and the belt, and rebuilt the dryer. Runs as good as new.
