Idler Pulley
PartSelect Number PS334244
Manufacturer Part Number 279640
The idler pulley with tri-ring and gasket, also known as a dryer belt tension pulley wheel, is used in dryers. This part maintains the right amount of tension for the belt to rotate the drum. This effectively spins the drum. If your dryer is experiencing any of the following symptoms, it is best to replace this part: not rotating, does not start, making squealing noises when it is in use, or it does not tumble properly. For this repair project, the tools needed are a Phillips screwdriver, 1/4 inch nut driver, putty knife, small flat blade screw driver, and needle nose pliers. Refer to the manual provided by the manufacturer for installation instructions.

Idler Pulley Wheel with Bearing
PartSelect Number PS11757553
Manufacturer Part Number WPY54414
The idler pulley wheel helps the belt to rotate the drum in your dryer. If your dryer will not start, will not tumble, or is noisy during operation, the idler pulley wheel may need to be replaced. This part is located beneath the drum of the dryer, so the drum will need to be removed before you can access the idler pulley wheel. It is also recommended to remove the blower housing and motor from the dryer itself, for easier access to the idler pulley wheel. It is connected by a set of two 5/16 screws. This two-inch-wide idler pulley wheel is beige or black in color and is made of plastic. This pulley wheel comes with its own metallic bearing in its center. Be sure to shut off power to the dryer before beginning this repair.
