The key points to a complex repair:
Unplug the power cord and don't touch the plug conductors.. it's 220 VOLTS!!! Also I use safety glasses, just a thought.
Take the small cover off the back and make a drawing right on the back of the dryer or inside the cover of how the drive belt runs off the drum to the motor and around the idler pulley. When you put it back on don't put it around the back of the metal bracket. It goes between the bracket and the puley. When you get the front off and the drum out clean the lint out of the motor. The rollers go together dry no oil or grease. Don't leave the drive belt on the floor when you put the dryer back together. A wedge on the floor under the front panel will help lift it in place.
Good luck. And don't put your hands in the dryer when it's running.
