Looks to be a great replacement for Samsung's poorly made idler assembly. Shame Samsung can't make a quality idler like almost every other Appliance Mfgr can.
I sent an email to them telling them what part I needed in my model number of my dryer and I got an email back within a day telling me what part I needed actually they sent a link,they are great thank you.
Item was just what i needed and came in a timely manner.
the part was exactly what we needed - my husband installed it and the dryer operates QUIETLY again! Good price and the part was shipped/arrived promptly. Thank you!
Great place to order your supplies..
corect part worked great
The pulley and mount worked fine. Came with a different screw which was required. Very satisified with the product and price.
This pulley is what samsung should have originally installed.
They are still using the fail prone design. Being an appliance repair service this has meant job security!
This part has a real ball bearing which should never fail.
If your Samsung Dryer is making a screeching noise, then this is more than likely your problem. The original Idler Pulley didn't have a ball bearing but had a wheel with a bushing and the grease lubricant would dry out creating friction and the wheel starts to freeze up. This is a replacement Idler Pulley from Samsung and it has been redesigned with a ball bearing that should last a lot longer than the original. I watched a video on YouTube that shows access from the back through the removal of the vent hose plate. I ordered from McCombs as I had ordered from them previously. They expedite the orders fairly rapidly, are well stocked, and reasonably priced. Our Samsung Dryer now sounds like it did when we bought it. You can't go wrong ordering from McCombs.
Our Samsung Dryer started to make an awful screeching sound and after some research, I believed it was the Idler Pulley. I saw a video on YouTube showing the replacement of the pulley and decided to order the replacement from McCombs. I have ordered from them previously and they proved to be reasonably priced with fairly quick expediting of their orders. The pulley is the new version from Samsung with an actual bearing that should last a lot longer than the original design. Needless to say, our dryer now sounds like it did when it was new. If your dryer is making the dreaded screeching noise, it's a very good chance that it's caused by the idler pulley. And McCombs is a great choice for a supplier.
It's a replacement Samsung part. As of writing this review the thing has not burst into flames or exploded like the original one in the dryer did.
