We discovered that the dial "skirt" had cracked so the "pointer" didn't line up. Got the new skirt, pulled the old one off, had to get pliers to pull one small broken part off. Slipped the new skirt on and the dryer works like new. All for less than $5.00. Christmas was saved!

belt tensioner pulley seized to shaft

  • Customer: Shane from Heber City, UT
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers, Wrench set
  • 2 of 2 people found this instruction helpful
At first I thought I could just replace the pulley, but on closer inspection I found that the pulley had become seized on the shaft. I ended up removing the entire bracket (which I should have purchased also) and cutting the shaft off. I manufactured a new shaft from a bolt of the appropriate size and tack welded it to the bracket. It took a little more time than I anticipated. My advice to anyone doing this would be to spend a little extra money and buy the entire bracket and pulley. That would make this about a 15 minute job.
