Product Description

Idler Pulley Assembly Specifications

This part provides the tension required for a multi-ribbed belt. It also helps the belt rotate the drum and attaches to the idler pulley wheel. If your dryer will not start or tumble, takes too long to dry, or is noisy during operation, you may need to replace the idler pulley assembly. Make sure to disconnect power before installing this part, and wear work gloves to protect your hands. While the dryer is disassembled for this repair, consider replacing the drive belt as well. You will need a putty knife, a Phillips screwdriver, and a 5/16 nut driver for this repair.

Where does part 28 go in dryer?
For model number NED5200TQ0
PartSelect logo
Hi Tom, Thank you for the question. The Idler Pulley is down by the motor and the belt. If you watch video on how to install the part it will show the location or this part. Hope this helps

Hi. I've replaced my belt but it seems to slip if there is more than just a little weight in the drum. My thought was to replace the idler also as perhaps it's fatigued from age. The replacement part has a wheel in the pic which seems better than mine which is just a half round solid piece which seems like it would cause more drag/friction. Could the replacement part be different than the original?
For model number LGR5636KQ1
PartSelect logo
Hello James, thank you for writing. This Idler Pulley Assembly is the correct replacement for your model, and may be the cause of what you describe. Replacement parts are sometimes updated by the manufacturer and may be different in appearance but will have the same functionality. We hope this helps.

My tensioner broke.Do i have to replace any relays or safety switches or heating elements?
For model number 77965100
PartSelect logo
Hello Edward, thank you for your question. If the idler pulley is the only part that broken, and it didn't damage the belt switch this is the only part you should have to replace. I hope this helps!

My dryer has a wear pad instead of a idler pulley
For model number Lgr3624jq2
PartSelect logo
Hello John, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has updated that wear pad and no longer has it available. They have changed the part to the idler pulley, and have advised it would work as a replacement for the original part. That part is PartSelect Number PS11743765. I hope this helps.

My dryer worked fine for about five minutes this morning. The tumbler stopped. I can hear a buzzing sound like it’s on. But when i push the start button, it will not tumble.
For model number LER5644AWO
PartSelect logo
Hello Cherry, thank you for your question. If the unit is turning on, but the drum is not tumbling we would recommend checking the belt PartSelect Number: PS346995. If the unit is not starting or tumbling you will want to test the start switch, timer, motor and fuse. I hope this helps.

Hi, this morning i tried throwing in a quick load of laundry but instead of just starting like usual a very loud banging/thumping noise is what i got from my dryer. I guess the best way to explain the sound is, like drying a pair of really heavy shoes.

Today when I started my dryer, it made a squeaking sound and the drum did not turn. I called up your website, since I have used it with two other repairs, to learn what the problem could be. It is not the belt, it is not broken. It is not the idler pulley because it is a fixed metal support with a groove for the drum belt and the drum moves freely when I turn it by hand. I don't know what to check next or how to test the part to determine if it not working. Any suggestions?

Hi Sue, Thank you for the question. This sounds like an issue with the Drive Motor with Pulley, PartSelect Number PS334304.Hope this helps!

Replaced the belt on our dryer and turned it on and it ran for a few seconds and cut off. Smelled like something was getting hot and took apart look to see that everything was lined up again and nothing looked like it was melting. Put back together and start it again and just like before ran for about 5 seconds and quit and again smelled like something getting hot. What could be the problem
For model number CEDS563SQO
PartSelect logo
Hi Kim, Thank you for the question. I suggest checking the belt to make sure it is not to tight. You can also check the idler pulley for the belt to ensure the pulley isn't bent or out of place. Sounds like something might be out of place. Hope this helps!

For model number 110.87562601
PartSelect logo
Hello Leann, thank you for reaching out. According to our research on model number 110.87562601, the problem appears to be with the Thermal Fuse, part number PS11741460. If that does not help then the issue is likely to be with the Door Catch Kit, part number PS334230. Customer service is always available to help you place an order if you are having trouble doing so. Good luck with your repair!

Belt was slipping, and having a hard time spinning the drum
First off, start by turning of the breaker to the dryer and confirming the power has been turned off. Next, remove the lint screen and two screws holding the lint screen housing to the lid. Remove the two side moldings on the control panel and the two screws holding doun the enclosure. Slide the control enclosure forward and lift up . Take a picture of the wiring for later reference and carefully unplug the wires and set the enclosure aside. Next, remove the two screws holding the rear lid retaining clips. Gently pry up on the front of the lid to realese hold doun clips, swing the lid up and remove it from the rear clips, set the lid aside. Remove the two screws on corners of front cover located near the top, unplug the door switch. Remove the front cover by lifting straight up, set aside. Now remove the belt from the motor by realeasing the tensioner and remove it from the drum. You can now remove the drum through the front. Now is a good time to check the condition of your drum rollers, clean them as needed or replace them. Clean the roller shafts and apply a quality grease. "Clean the roller groove on the drum" this is what makes the drum sound bumpy! Remove the rear seal and replace it as per the instructions that come with the seal. The glue dries quickly, so have the seal fully in place and apply glue to small areas replacing the seal fully before moving on. You can now reinstall the drum being careful not to damage the seal. Place the drum on the rollers, reach inside and work the seal into place. You can now replace the belt and work in reverse with the casings! It took me longer to type these instructions than it did to make this repair! Enjoy your like new machine!

Dryer was making all kinds of noises
After checking out the website and the videos posted to YouTube, I decided that I should take a chance and try and repair the problem myself. I am not in any way mechanical, and for me personally, this was a huge job. The instructions and the video were so clear that it made the job easy. Taking out the dryer drum was a concern, and although not heavy, I used a friend to hold it in place when I was putting it back together. My only small issue was when I was removing the rollers. I had some difficulty taking off the plastic locking washers but other than that, it was a breeze. The videos posted are great and very easy to follow. While doing the above job, I also replaced the dryer belt and heating element, both of which I followed instructions as per video. The dryer is running very smooth, and is the quietest it has been for many years. Very happy with all aspects of service advice and videos.
