Thank you for your question.

I do not think our terminology is the same. I believe you need to get access to the belt tensioner and the motor pulley. First, make sure to unplug the dryer. Then follow the instruction in the image below to open the dyer. I recommend wearing a pair of gloves because the edges on the panels are not finished and cut hands easily. The belt idler has a spring that attaches to the base to tension the belt. When you pull up on the idler arm, the spring will stretch.

The motor pulley screws onto the end of the motor shaft. To remove the motor pulley you have to hold the motor shaft with a pair of vise grips. Then turn the pulley with a large adjustable wrench. The factory has been known to use lock tite on the threads so it can be difficult to remove the pulley.

Please let me know if this was the information you needed by replying below.

Q:

Why won't my dryer motor continue to run even though I changed the PTS switch and the motor relay?

A:

The wiring diagram is shown in the image below. Your symptoms indicate one of two likely problems. You could have a problem with the Blue/Black wire connection on the Start Sense (P1-5) pin of the control board. If 120 volt AC voltage is not present or the connection of the wire to the control board is bad, then the Evenheat control board will not apply the 48 volt DC voltage through the Pink/Black wires to the motor relay to hold the relay contact closed and continue to supply the voltage to the drive motor. If you find no problems with the Start Sense circuit, then you likely have a failed Evenheat control board.

NOTE: I do not recommend checking live voltage readings on the dryer. You can check the continuity of the Start Sense circuit using a volt/ohm meter.
