Replacing your clothes dryer belt

Question: I’m trying to replace the belt on my electric dryer. I am unsure of which way to thread it on the pulley/tensioner system. The piece that comes from the center of the motor is directly under the bigger piece attached to the spring which I believe is the tensioner.

The tensioner is on an inverted V shaped piece of metal with the spring on the left as viewed from the back of the dryer through the access place.

I don’t want to guess wrong as it looks like it could go either way, but I’m sure it must have a proper direction to go.

Answer: Here’s a handy diagram that shows different clothes dryer drum and belt configurations. Choose the one that looks right for your clothes dryer.
