Broken belt and bad idler pulley

I unplugged the power cord first of all. Then I pulled the dryer away from the wall so I could get behind it and take off the small vent cover that had two screws holding it. Then I reached in and grabbed the old, broken belt and pulled it out. I reached in and disconnected the idler pulley off of the metal stud that it slid onto and then disconnected the spring off of it. After receiving the new parts I took the new idler pulley and reattached the spring to it and then attached the metal housing to the metal stud where the slot was at. I went to the front of the dryer and took the screws out of the top of the door housing pried the door housing away from the top of the dryer about 8". Also I opened the door of the dryer where I took the new belt and put it around the dryer drum as far as I could get it towards the back. Then I went to the back of the dryer. I put my hand into the vent hole and grabbed ahold of the belt and pulled it all the way towards the back where the old belt used to ride on the dryer drum. Then I pulled all the slack and put the belt over on the pulley that was on the motor. After that I pulled the idler pulley back far enough to position the belt on the pulley and that caused tension on the belt. I then put the vent cover back in place on the back of the dryer and put the two screws in it to hold it. I went around to the front and closed the door on the dryer and put the front housing back into place. After that I put the screws into the top of the front housing. The job was complete so I plugged in the dryer to test it and everything worked fine.

Belt broke

Very easy install. Removed the top and front of dryer, and put new belt on drum. Also replaced Idler Pulley (altho didn't really need to.)
I've had the dryer more than 20 years, so I am really glad such a simple repair will keep it going!
Parts arrived very quickly - great service from PastSelect!

The idler pulley was screaming for years on this thing finally it gave up

the repair was easy enough, the idler pulley and bracket was 2 screws to access and one bolt to remove. the thing that amazed me was that Parts Select even had the items we needed, the lint trap was trashed for years as well and I'd looked for it a few times but never found it, When we found Parts Select we found every thing the old beast needed. Its much quieter around here now! that sucker used to howl!

Belt broke and the pulley broke.

I unplugged the dryer. Undid the top by taking out 2 screws and mounts on each side of the back. There were two screws in the front panel that had to be removed. One on each side. Then I took the two wires off the killer switch on the door. Marking which was top and which was bottom. Then I removed the front panel. Then I undid the drum which had 3 screws in. I took out the drum to find the problem. I replaced the drum putting the belt on. Then I took off the back panel at the bottom of the dryer to get at the idler arm. Took off the spring and unhooked the arm. I put the new arm on and replaced the spring. I then put the belt on to the pulley and closed up the back panel. I put back the front panel. I put the top back on. I plugged it back in and turned it on and it worked!
