Question about Dryers
Trying to replace belt. Arm tension thing with wheel on it lying on bottom of housing. Cannot find where it goes.
Shows how it goes. The lower right graphic has the Kenmore 70. There are slots in the bottom of the dryer to lock it in.
If you spin the drum by hand, only spin it counter-clockwise the same way the motor spins it. Mine kept coming off and found it was due to spinning it by hand clockwise. For some reason the belt slips to the side of the tensioner then off the lip... when spun clockwise.

Funny thing, I'm just now finding the same problem. The belt broke and when I looked inside this part was just lying on the bottom. The wheel had an obvious wear line from the belt, so it must have been somewhere. I think it should go near the motor shaft, but I don't see where, either. Good luck to us both.
