After reading the other E-mails and checking the Schematics included with this website - I found the information extremely helpful. I decided to order a new belt (even though the old one looked acceptable), because mine is more than 10 years old. They send you information with order too that helps explain the process of replacement. I followed the procedures that everyone else recommended - therefore, It would be repetitive to do over again. I could not find an exact match with my model number, but some of the descriptions were close (unfortunately I do not have the model number with me right now).

People who attempt to replace their belt should be aware that replacing it is a trial and error thing. It took me a while when holding the tumbler up with my left hand and hooking the belt over the motor wheel and pulley wheel with my right hand, at the same time. You can not see what your doing and you are doing everything by touch. You have to twist it a certain way - not easy in tight quarters! The other thing that I discovered was the pulley wheel was difficult to turn. I had to spray alot of silicon spray and turn it by hand a number times to get it loose. Once it loosened up it turned over very easily.

I'm glad I did this procedure on my own. Its good to know that you are saving money by not calling a repairman and figuring it out on your own.

Thanks again Parts Select!
