Ordered an new idler pulley and belt for this dryer. The new idler pulley is differant with no deeper grove on one side. The belt jumps off when using it. If I install the old idler pulley it works fine but still sqeeks. Any sugestions?
Based on the model number of your dryer the idler pulley would be part number 37001144 which shows that it does have the groove that you are referring to on one side. If this is the part that you ordered then you may want to use a silicone grease to grease the idler roller shaft.
Best way to install tension pulley for dryer belt?
Answer Hello Jay. You will need to access the pulley are and remove the clip securing the pulley to the shaft. Then slide off the old one and slide the new pulley Y54414 onto the shaft of the unit.
