Opened top using flat blade screwdriver (pry open), it swings up on what is loosely a hinge on the back of the dryer. Removed 2 sheet metal screws on inside front panel, unplug door switch wiring on right front (looking at dryer), pry open front panel with flat blade screwdriver. Tilt front panel out and remove, may have to support drum, I did not. Slid new belt over drum. Remove access panel on lower right rear to gain access to motor, there is a idler wheel and spring that needs to be reattached, Slid belt over motor pully, idler rides on back of belt, spring to a hole on motor housing, don't remember which one, should be clear of any moving parts. Remove oud drum glide from front panal, follow cleaning directions. Install new drum glide with provided glue, suggest having some spring clamps or clothes pins to hold drum glide in place while glue sets up. Then reverse the steps, be careful when sliding drum back over the glide or you may dislodge the new drum glide. Remember to unplug the appliance before you start, before closing top and rear access panel give it a try.. Think that was about it.
