Removed the front of the dryer and the vent assembly that held the drum in place. Removed the drum and cleaned the interior of the dryer with vaccum cleaner. I then oile the drum rollers which were starting to get dry and squeeky. Slipped new belt over drum and re-installed the drum vent assembly and then the fron of the dryer. Opened the rear access of the dryer and completed the installation oc the belt over the motor drive pully and idler wheel. Returned dryer to working location and tested - all was well. Note - the installation instruction that came with the belt are not clear on having to open the rear access panel. The directions made it sound like you can actually do everything from the front side - not likely unless you have 4 foot arms the size of broom sticks! Once I open the rear and could actually see the motor and idler pulley it was easy to finish.
