A missing idler pulley hiding in the dust bunnies

My Samsung dryer doesn’t spin

My dryer just quit working tonight. Its drum doesn’t spin. So, off to YouTube I went for repair advice. I immediately found a couple of helpful videos.

Huh, look at that: the idler pulley is missing! Oh there it is, hiding in the dust bunny in the lower right.

After another online search, I ordered the replacement part. It should arrive in a couple of days. With a little luck I’ll be able to do the repair without having to move the dryer any farther.

In the meantime, I’m going to round up some dust bunnies.
