Disconnect power & shut off gas. Repair entry is from the front, Remove clothes access door mark & remove all visable screws, push down on the front panel held up by two spring clips at the bottom of the panel. Remove the broken belt and make sure it matches the old belt. Remove left & right clips located at top left & right corners. This will release the control center panel top lid , flip up this hinged lid and secure it. Remove a secondary front panel that the tub rotates on. You can now install the new belt, ribs down on the tub & line it up on the marks left by the old belt make sure the belt is not twisted. Reach under the tub with your lelt and right hand , with your right hand flex the idler arm pulley to the left and lace the belt around the ribed motor pulley with your left hand. Reverse these steps By replacing the front secondary panel this is what the tub rotates. Then spin it, it will be a little stiff that is o.k. just as long it not binding. Replace all panels and door. Congratulations it's done. Plug in power & turn the gas on. Also replace that old plastic vent exhaust duct with a flex aluminum duct, it could be a fire hazzard.
