The dryer started to rattle very loudly

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.

Noise when tumbling

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.
