I pulled off the front panel to access the motor and pulley systems underneath the tumbling cylinder. I disconnected the tension spring on the pulley assemble. Then after sliding the belt off the pulley, I removed the screw that held the pulley to the bracket. I put the new pulley on, slide the belt over the new pulley and attached the spring. Nothing difficult, just a little uncomfortable squeezing both hands into the bottom space.
