I pulled off the front panel to access the motor and pulley systems underneath the tumbling cylinder. I disconnected the tension spring on the pulley assemble. Then after sliding the belt off the pulley, I removed the screw that held the pulley to the bracket. I put the new pulley on, slide the belt over the new pulley and attached the spring. Nothing difficult, just a little uncomfortable squeezing both hands into the bottom space.
First ordered belt and rollers Noise continued then orders tension roller. Better but still noise. Son thinks may be motor. Repair was easy just followed what you already had on line.
Take front panel off with 5/16 nut driver and reach in and get 3/8 socket to remove 1 bolt off and replace idler pulley
We had to take the dryer apart first to figure out what the problem was. Put it back together after determining what was the problem, order parts ,receive parts in the mail, tear dryer back apart install new parts, close dryer up, test run, Get Thank-you kiss from wife!!!
