They are called jockey wheels and live in the bottom next to the
motor. A little rod with a small black wheel on top on a spring.

Ive just had a look and cant see anything but the motor on its own sat
bottom, towards the centre back of the unit. definatly no jockey wheel
close to it or on it?? Its just a basic motor with a rod through the
center, one end for the metal fins and the other ribbed (presumably
for the ribbed belt to fit onto). Is there any way this thing dosnt
have a jockey wheel but and alternative way of pulling the belt tight?

The cheap &^%^s must have changed the design after I left.

The belt tightens when you put the front back on and re-engage the
door surround in the drum front. But without at least one jockey
wheel, I can't see how tension is supplied. Sorry.

Ok EricP thanks for your help - i`m at a loss now cos if this belt did
go around the front of the drum as alot of people are mentioning in
the posts then some hoe the belt has to make its way to the back to
align onto the motor. Hmm! looks like i`ll have to get a guy out and
pay the price (ouch)!
cheers mate

Some times the adjustment is from the motor, check that.

They did away with tensioners ages ago, the new belt is a stretch belt,
check the belt markings against your replacement you must have the wrong
one.
