This part fixes the following symptoms:
This dryer drum belt has four ridges, three grooves and is 1/4" wide.
The drum support rollers are not sold individually and are now available in a kit of 2. This kit contains the 2 rollers, four tri-rings and one palnut.
This part provides the tension required for a multi-ribbed belt. It also serves to help the belt to rotate the drum. This arm is what attaches to the idler pulley wheel.
I looked at the parts breakdown to see how it cam apart.I tore the dryer down, 1. removed the door 2. openned the top 3. removed front panel 4. removed fron bulkhead 5. removed belt and drum 6. removed back cover 7. removed the ductwork 8. removed the fan (this is the hardest part, it is very tight on the motor with left hand threads, there are flats on the (inside of the dryer)fan where the motor shaft goes into the fan for a wrench and you can put a socket on the front pulley on the motor. I ended up just knocking the center out of the fan and replacing it. 9. removed the motor and cleaned the entire unit 10. reinstalled everything in reverse order. Note:I went ahead and replaced the idler pulley and the rear wheels that support the drum, and put a new belt in (just about everything that could fail) I spent about $200 to keep a $1200 dryer in service at least another 7 years.

Purchased the dryer maintenqance repair kit. Very simple to do. Easy to follow instructions. Took less than an hour. Everything I needed was in th kit. Did not have to run to home depot for anything.
Followed simple instructions to replace two pulleys and belt. The Virtual Repairman helped me identify the cause in minutes. Took another 5 minutes to place the order and the part arrived two days later. Saved $125 at least. Thank you!john
1. Unplug unit, next disconnect vent then remove back cover. 2. replaced element (very easy) then 2 thermostats, then put cover back on. 3. Removed frt. cover by following directions that came with maint. kit this too was easy. The hardest part is getting belt on as your putting drum back in, and even that was only so hard. Just TAKE YOUR TIME, and you will get it.
Super easy to repair...I had to idea how to get started; but after watching the video from your site it was a breeze. Thanks for having "how to repair" videos on your site.Repair kit came in 2 days..fantastic..thank you so much....with new rollers, belt and tension roller she works like new

Removed rollers etc. Per the instructions. Cleaned inside of unit with a shop vac.Reassemble unit and test. Nice and quiet again and working well. Great service fro. Partselect.com.
Removed top cover. Removed front cover. Removed Drum. Located the broken belt. Found that there was no tensioner in the unit. Replaced drum rollers. Put in new tensioner. Repaced Drum with belt around it. Installed belt through tensioner and onto drive pully of motor. Supported Drum with wood block. Turned on dryer to insure drum turned without any problems. Removed wood block. Replaced front cover and top cover. Repair compete.
Used the maintenance kit....followed the movie tutorial. I also used an empty gallon plastic container to support the front of the drum while stretching the belt over the motor pulley. For the rear drum rollers, before sliding them on the shaft, I put a light grease film on the shaft. After the repair, the dryer runs quieter.
I had never tackled a job of this kind. It took me a little longer than it should because I was being very careful. Next time it will be easier and faster. The instructions that came with the parts was fantastic. I will be ordering from this site any time I have an appliance to repair. In the past I would have bought a new one. Saved a bunch of Bucks and works like new.
Watched the video, followed the printed instructions for reminder when necessary. Needed a second person briefly to hold the dryer tub when installing the new belt, and also when removing/replacing the front panel. Beyond that, it was straight forward and relataively easy to do. Solved the noise problems and it dries more evenly now as well. The one thing the instructions don't say is to check the rear canvas seal when the tub is re-inserted into place to assure it doesn't fold back on itself.
followed the enclosed instructions, used a balled up towel to support the drum while attaching the belt and tension pulley, took about 20 minutes
My son did the repairs it took less than 30 minutes it's an old dryer so glad to be able to get the parts. I do not like the new dryers because of all the pushbuttons thanks so much for the ports
follower the instructions from a you tube vid on whirlpool dryers. The connection of the motor to the blower is fairly tight be sure to turn it the correct direction, retaining clips for the motor are harder than is looks to reinstall. The new belt and rollers were a prenventive measure, If I had it apart I should just install the new belt and rollers.
Pretty much followed your great video: . Watching it gave me the confidence that I could accomplish the job myself.
