Although I'm mechanically inclined, you can do this repair if you've every used a screwdriver. I found a repair manual online and read through it just to make sure I was on the right path. I took the front panel(s) off, lifted the top up and out of the way, slipped the belt off the drum, and removed the drum. The rollers are easily replaced by taking a snap-ring off the end of the shaft. Clean the shafts and install the new rollers. The belt is easier to put on than replacing one on a car...actually, no tools required, just reach in and guide it over the motor pulley, pull the tension pulley back and slide the belt over it....line it up a little on the drum and that's it. Be careful putting the drum back in...that the felt guides are in place. Put the top and front parts back on and you're done.
