First I removed the two screws on the front cover near the bottom, pull the bottom out to about a forty five degree angle to release the clips from the top lid. Disconnect the door switch wires. Then you remove the four screws with the nut driver that hold the front drum support in place, the door switch wires are held to this with clips slide them off remove the drum support, slide new belt over the drum, replace front drum support . Turn the unit around remove the little door at the bottom right on the back panel ,take the small tension spring loose at the bottom plate, use the diagram that comes with the belt to thread the belt ,go back to the front and make sure the belt is not in the groove in the drum, then take the needle nose pliers and attach the spring back to the bottom plate. Go back to the front and rotate the drum slowly by hand to center the belt when this is good put the front back together and test run the drier.
