Product Description

Idler Spring with Rubber Dampener Specifications

This part is the replacement idler spring and rubber dampener for your dryer. The package comes with both the spring and the dampener. The spring is made of metal and is approximately 4 inches long from end to end. The dampener is made of black rubber and is approximately 1 inch long and 1 inch in diameter. The idler spring puts tension on the belt, so the drum can turn. The main reason you would want to replace the idler spring is if your dryer is noisy and will not tumble, and you discover that the spring is broken. Be sure to disconnect your dryer from the power source before you begin this repair. This part is an authentic OEM part from the manufacturer.

    Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
    Squeeky dryer
    Okay, first of all, just let me say, if I can do this, ANYONE can. I am not very handy when it comes to things like this. I watched online videos and they will walk you through everything. I am so pleased with the results. Quiet as can be now. Before, we would have to shut the door when it was on because the scretching was so loud! The parts on this site were far more affordable than at my local repair store and they all came right to my doorstep. Overall it took me about 45 minutes and three beers :) Good luck!

    These were changed proactively while I had the dryer apart to replace the motor.
    I removed the control panel and front panel, then the brace holding in the drum. Then the drum came out easily.

    Replacing the rollers is easy, use circlip pliers to remove the old circlips, replace the rollers, and reinstall the circlips.

    After removing the idler pulley by removing one bolt and the spring, I replaced the idler roller, again with the circlip pliers. Then the idler arm bolts back to the motor mount, and the spring is replaced.

    Reinstalling is easy - place the drum, have someone support it while you install the drum brace, then replace the front panel, then the control panel.
