First and foremost, PartSelect is awesome! I placed the order on a Monday afternoon with regular shipping, and I had the belt Tuesday evening. Total repair involved removing several screws to open the top and front of the dryer, then installing the new belt. Pay close attention to the the dryer seal - make sure this is completely set. This was a very, very easy repair, and it cost me less than $20 for part and shipping! Also, the video on the PartSelect site shows exactly how to make this repair, and was very helpful.

Belt Broke

I watched the video to know how to change the belt. I removed the front panel and slid the belt over the tub (you will have to pick the tub up a little). Then I reached around with one hand and slid the belt over the pulley. Then I used the same one hand to push the tensioner back and slip the belt behind it. You will be doing most of the work by feeling not by vision but that's where their video is helpful. I paused the screen on my laptop where it shows how the tensioner goes around the belt. Also when you slide the belt over the tub look for the grove the previous belt left for alignment. It took me 10 minutes.

I followed the excellent video instructions for dryer drive belt replacement. The tensioner proved to be a little tricky. I also had to fiddle the drum back into position. Now that I've actually done the repair, it would take half as long if doing it over.
