So I changed a thermal fuse, as well as a finding a short in the idler switch in this god awful dryer.  I had to take the drum out for the last part, and should have paid better attention to how it was threaded as it seemed too simple.

However, now I can't get any tension back in this thing.  I was looking at this image i found online (not my dryer, but rather someone elses, strung perfectly (bastards):




But don't get how the pulley there has so much tension on it.

Here is a  picture of the drum and the pulley. Unfortunately you can't see the actual motor below.



As you can see the belt is in the right groove - what am I missing here?  How do I make this thing tight?

I've given way too much time to give up now....

Thanks,
Brett

PS It's GE, made by Camco (Canada) model number PBXR463EB2WW - basically just looking for any tips about getting the belt back on - wondering if its just been stretched...
