Hello, my dryer needs the front glide and felt. I plan to use the rear bearing kit, too, as long as I have the machine torn down.
The machine seems to run okay, and is reasonably quiet, so I'm wondering about the likelihood of the idler assembly (131863007) having problems? That is, does the idler commonly fail--the machine is 10 years old--so I'm wondering about a preemptive strike, if necessary; if not, I would prefer not to incur the cost.
Thank you for your help, and informative web site.
Answer Hello Bob, Generally we would not change parts just to change them but since you would be in the unit it would not be a bad idea to check to see if there is any wear. If there is wear replace parts 131863007 Idler arm and 131601000 Idler Spring. I would recommend changing spring at the same time you change Arm
Just replaced drum bearing assembly still have a vibration after dryer runs for about an hour need to know if theres a spacer thats suppose to be on the idler arm pully it is a LEQ6000ES2 frigidaire dryer.
Answer Hello Bruce. Check and see if the front seal 134440200 is bad in the unit. If it is good, you will need to check and see if the blower wheel is loose or bad and if it is clogged with lint. If so, it will cause the issues you are having with the unit.
Is the pulley stationary on the arm? My pulley moves toward me if I pull on it. Is it supposed to be moving like that?
Answer Hello Jer. No, the pulley is not stationary on the idler arm assembly 131863007. It has to move or the belt would come off the unit. Hope this helps.
Where does the spring attach to the back of part number AP3886900?
Answer Hello Mort. The spring attaches inside the small hole in the picture, on the left side, above the large hole. Hope this helps.
