Tumble Dryer Jockey Wheel Pulley

If your tumble dryer is making a terrible racket when it's on and just won't stay put, this jockey wheel may give you the noise reduction and stability you need. 

Genuine spare part suitable for select models of Ariston, Hotpoint and many more brands of tumble dryers.
Please check the list of suitable models to ensure that this spare part will fit your appliance.

Top Tip: Submitted by Dave, an eSpares customer and Fix-It Expert
If just changing the wheel, then you only need to remove the top & side panel of the tumble dryer, then it's a case of undoing the 2 bolts with a small spanner (or socket if you have one that small). Key advice is to use a piece of wire to apply tension to the belt (I tied the wire to a piece of wood that I then levered to be able to remove/refit the bolts).

    Putting on the jockey wheel is easy with the right tool. Get yourself an 8mm ratchet spanner. Turn machine on its side and remove the front bolt first and remove. Loosen the rear bolt and the bracket will swing back loosening the belt tension. When putting on the new jockey wheel tighten up the rear bolt first but do NOT fully tighten it. Allow the bracket to swing. Put the belt around the wheel and pull the bracket forward. You will notice there is a bit at the back on the bracket that will engage in motor aperture this will help locate the front hole to put the front bolt through. Then tighten front bolt and then rear bolt. Make sure that the belt is straight around the drum and on the motor. DO NOT FORCE THE BELT AROUND THE JOCKET WHEEL!!! You will risk damaging the drum bearings the drum and the jockey wheel.
  • Quite difficult to fit but good value & great service.

    Original part had disintegrated on my Hotpoint TCD980, so thought I'd replace it myself. Top & side panel removed easy enough, along with original part & motor fan cover. Took about 30 minutes of thinking, grunting & groaning to pull the belt over the Jockey wheel but got there in the end (used a length of 3 core cable to help pull the belt over the wheel). Tumble drier now much quieter and working well.
  • Better than the original

    Very good value and fixed drier very quickly. Good as new and saved cost of service man or new drier as I amsure many people would do. Tricky to reinstall rear bolt on refitting as I have large hands. Solved by making rear fixing hole on new part into a slot so that the bolt is easily fitted the droppingpart over rear bolt. Belt then easy to refit before installing front bolt and tightenning whole thing up. Pressure of belt works downwards against the slot so no fear of idler comming loose.
