After unplugging the dryer and pulling it away from the wall, my husband and I removed the 2 screws in the lint remover on top of dryer. Then we lowered the dryer onto its back and removed the front panel. We had to remove the top two screws and then the lower part just slid out of the groove. We also had to disconnect the wire plug that was connected to the front panel. When we first put the belt around the drum, we thought it was too small and got the old belt to compare it. An exact match. So we re-looked at the instructions and noted that the spinner was positioned wrong. Once that was corrected, the belt went on fairly easily except for my husband's slightly squashed thumb! The dryer runs just fine now and we are finally caught up on the wash.
