I lifted the top of the dryer by pulling out and up on the front end - over the two clips holding it to the front panel. The front cover was next. I removed this by removing the two screws holding it to the drum (located inside the door), then I lifted the front panel up and off the clips holding it at the bottom.
I then laid the dryer on it's back. This keeps the drum in place and makes it easier to install the new belt. I put the belt on, following the instructions provided with the belt. Very easy.
While it was disassembled I vacuumed out the insides and found about $5 worth of change.
I reassembled the dryer (working backwords from above) and fired it up with no problems.
