Removed the front lower access panel. Determined main problem was broken drum drive belt. Ordered additional parts due to age of machine. Removed front, rear and top panels of the dryer, electronics panel, drum and lint duct. Also took the time to thoroughly vacuum the components, motors, exhaust and clean duct work. Did not change the drum rollers as those were in very good shape. Reassembled and it immediately started right up. Should be good for another 10 years and I am the wiser for the next project. BTW, did this without a manual. Figure I saved about $400.
