I removed the two screws holding the lint trap to the top. I popped the lid up and leaned it back. The broken belt was lying on the bottom. I copied the model #. I found the belt onthe Internet and ordered it having it sent directly to the house where the dryer was. It arrived two days earlier than I anticipated. Since shipping was being tracked I knew it had arrived. After work I stopped there to fix it. I popped open the bottom panel, vacuumed out the inside, removed the two top screws holdin the front. Then I slipped the belt between the drum and the front. Inlaced the belt on the motor pulley and tensioner according to the drawing that came with the belt. Then I put the two top screws holding on the front. Then popped on the bottom and top panelsand put the two screws holding on the lint filter. All done, 15 minutes including ordering the belt.
