Disconnect power source remove front panel, lift drum off mounts, push old belt off the rear of the drum and remove drum from dryer cabinet. release tension on idler ass. and remove assembly idler was wrong depth so I had to remove the wheel from new assembly and replace it on the old mount (not a big deal, easier than returning it for a replacement 5 min. job)don't forget to vacuum out all the lint that accumalates in dry cabinet ( big fire hazard if left in there) lay new belt over drum, sneak it pass all obsticles and route it around idler which is the hardest part because of limited room for arms and hands. Make sure drum is snapped back into the rear seal and spin by hand to check proper belt alignment. Replace front panel and run.
