This Idler Pulley is an OEM part directly from GE for an electric dryer. The purpose of the idler pulley is to maintain the correct tension on the drive belt to spin the drum. The most common reason to replace this part is when the motor runs and the drum doesn't spin. This item is sold separately and is made of a high-quality plastic material. Remember to unplug your appliance before beginning any repair.

Idler Pulley - WE12X83
Felt - WE09X20441
Drum Slide - WE1M1067
Drum Bearing Slide - WE1M504
Repair Difficulty:
Time Spent Repairing:
1-2 hours
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, Pliers, Duct tape
Drum wouldn't turn
1 Slid dryer away from wall and removed duct pipe and unplugged dryer
2 Removed control panel, making sure to unplug all internal connections, top of dryer and front of dryer which included door.
3 Found drive belt broke, and while I had dryer apart replaced drum slides, slide bearings, rear bearing assy., door felt, and idler pulley because I had this dryer apart before several years ago and the same parts were wore out.
4 Also replaced drive belt and cleaned all lint from blower housing and duct work, and everywhere else I found inside the dryer.
5 Putting the drum belt on was hard because you have no room for 2 arms inside and you have to route the belt around the drum, idler pulley, and motor pulley, very tricky with one arm and one hand, patience.
6 Reassembled sheet metal and ran, very quiet now
