How do get to the idler pulley to replace it?
ANSWER Peter, You'll need to disconnect power to the dryer, remove the lower front access panel (two spring clips in the seam between the lower panel and upper front panel/door assembly) set the panel aside. You may want to lay a towel or pad on the front frame of the base. Push the idler arm towards the motor pulley and slip the belt off the motor. With a small flat blade screwdriver, pry the triangular plastic retainer clip off the end of the idler shaft, and remove the washers and pulley, clean the shaft with a wrag, lubricate the shaft with high speed oil( 3 in 1 oil works) and reverse the procedure. Thanks and Good Luck
