For Whirlpool Belt Tension Pulley (Part Number: AP4373393)

My dryer is squealing at start up. Is this a sign that it is the tension pulley or the belt that needs replaced? Is it that the pulley can be adjusted?

David for Model Number MDE9606AYW

ANSWER Hello David. You will need to remove the belt from the pulley 6-3700340 and see if it is bad. Turn the pulley by hand and see if the pulley drags on the shaft. Do not run the dryer before checking the pulley. if the pulley is tight on the shaft, you will need to replace the pulley. There is no way to adjust the tension on the belt. Hope this helps.
