The Parts Select instruction as to how to put the new belt in is a bit incomplete. All handy homeowners can ultimately figure out how to install the belt. The Parts Select video does not show a very important part of the project and that is-how one side of the belt from one side of the drum goes into the MOTOR PULLEY and which side of the belt goes into the IDLER PULLEY. A homeowner with no mechanical common sense would be frustrated because of 2 problems: 1) The belt would not be tight when the incorrect side is installed. 2) the belt would always be falling into the drum groove (which it should not).
