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.
