Removed two screws in lint screen area and lifted top panel. Took out two screws holding top of front panel to side panels. Removed front panel. I removed drum, but theoretically could have kept it in place to replace the belt. Took out the idle roller assembly and lubricated it with WD-40 to make sure it was spinning freely. After over 20 years, there was a lot of dust and dirt inside, so I also vacuumed. (Found a fair amount of loose change, too!) Should be good for another 10 -20 years...
