First I unplugged the dryer and unhooked the vent hose. Next I took out two phillips screws out of the front cover and took off the front cover enough to take two wires off of the door switch. Then I took out the broken belt, took off the unit that holds the tumbling unit in place and checked the rollers. Next, I replaced the belt on the tumbling unit, took off the access panel on the back of the dryer and worked the belt around the belt tensioner. I installed the unit that holds the tumbling unit in place, doubled checked the belt placement and installed the two wires back on the switch and installed the front cover. Reattached the dryer vent hose, plugged the dryer back in and did a test run. Unit worked fine.

If you take the top off, make sure that you pay attention to alignment when you put it back together.
