I followed the instructions supplied with the belt. I've changed the belt before so was familiar with the repair. The toe panel clips for my model had changed so what was supplied was different than the originals. Although they, too, came with instructions, they did not fit my appliance. They were inexpensive so I scrapped them and used some self-adhesive Velcro fasteners I had in a junk box.

I came home from work to notice the dryer singing a different tune than usual. I opened the door and noticed that the tub wasnt turning. I popped the top of the dryer up to find a disentigrated belt. Fired up the computer and in a few minutes had ordered the $8 ($15 including shipping) replacement belt. 3 days later took the shopvac and cleaned up the lint and broken belt pieces. Installed the new belt and was back in business with my 8 year old dryer. ** The only complaint comes from my wife who got her hopes up for a new front load washer and dryer** Thanks PartSelect for saving my wallet in more than one way!
