I took the top of the drier off by remoing two screws in back of drier. I also removed the two screws in the lint trap. Tnen i pushed the top in a little and lifted up the lidand leaned it on a 4x4 so it would not pull out the electrical wires, I then took the front of the drier off by removing the 2 screws from the inside of the drier. I held the drum up so it would not fall After pulling the front off, i put it to the side and stood the front panel up so I could take the drum off and put the replacement belt around the drum. I thenputh the drum back in the same place and pulled the belt thru the Idle pully and wrapped it arond the motor pulley. While you are putting on the belt, either cut a small 4x4 or have someone hold the drum up. Then put the front panel and the top back on. This was made easy by reading another repair story. Thank you and good luck.
