Remove the lint filter.
Access the belt by removing the top of the dryer cabinet. It is held on by clips that allow it to be pried off, no screws to deal with. I used a thin wooden wedge to avoid chipping the enamel.
Remove the wires from the door mounted switch, remove the screws that attach the front of the cabinet, and remove the front.
The dryer drum is unsupported after removing the front of the cabinet. This allows the new belt to be slipped over the drum.
With a broken belt it isn’t obvious how to route the belt through the tensioner, but 30 seconds of trial and error should yield the solution.
Reattach the wires to the door switch.
During reassembly notice the felt support bearing around the door opening and be sure to keep it smooth and flat as you join the front panel to the drum.
