I used the online examples at your site, the repair was quick. The down and dirty

1. remove screws from lint filter
2. remove 2 top left / right screws from the back
3. pop open front top edge of dryer. remove the top
4. remove inside top front left / right screws
5. disconnect wireing from front door. I had to use a very small screw driver to get the wiring clip to seperate. Both sides of the electrical plactic connector have a clip notch.
6. lift front dryer door up from bottom clips. flip dryer on it's back as it works best if dryer is laid on it's back for better access.
7. place new belt around dryer tub rubber groved side towards the dryer tumbler.
8. feed the belt through the tension pully and around the electric drive motor.
9. make sure tension pully is secured / clipped back to the dryer floor. It helps to slowly rotate the dryer tumbler/ tub to reposition the belt.
10 carefully move dryer back to upright position. helps to have a second pair of hands as you will need to hold the tunbler / tub while you reposition the front door on the lower clips.
11. pug in electrical wireing, replace front, back and lent filter screws.

Additional Info: You might want to remove the dryer hose from the back of the dryer as it will make it easier when you lay the dryer on it's back.

My wife and I completed the repair in 30 to 60 minutes.
