There was a video that showed exactly how to replace the belt which was awesome. First remove the screen filter and the two screws. Use puddy knife to release the top by inserting under the top about an inch or two from the front edge on the left and right side in front. The top should release and lift up. Secure the top so it does not fall forward or backwards. There are two screws about a third way down from the inside that you can see from the top. Remove them and the front panel will lift slighly and lay down. Remove the drum or just install the new belt around the drum as specified. Replae the tension pully as well as this usually is the reason the belt breaks. Reinstall and you're back in business. I recommend watching the video on how to replace the belt.
