For Whirlpool Dryer Belt Tension Pulley Assembly (Part Number: AP4046792)

Answer or Comment

How can you tell if the pulley assembly is worn out? My looks generally fine except for a few niches on the very edge. I already replaced the rollers, and felt pads under glides. The glides looked used, but not worn so I did not replace them. The belt looks good too. But when I put the dryer back together it still sounds horrible, like metal grinding. What could I be missing?

ANSWER Hello Gretchen. You will need to check and make sure the drum felt 37001132 is good on the dryer. If not, it will cause the problem you are having. To check the tension pulley 37001287, you will check for it being to tight or to loose on the shaft, and look for groves cut into the roller by the belt. Hope this helps.
