Since the belt broke, I had to put the cogged belt on the large driven pulley first, after loosening the four motor mount screws, and sliding the motor as close to the driven belt as I could. After several tries, I positioned the belt successfully on the driven pulley, then slipped it over the pulley on the motor. I pulled the motor as far away from the driven pulley to put proper tension on the belt without being excessive. I snugged the four motor mount bolts, tested the compactor and after a successful run, tightened the bolts on the motor mount. I then replaced the latch assembly, two screws and it was done.

Replaced the old latch knob and installed the new one by twisting it in by hand . That was easy. The part in the door itself was not holding the new latch knob. I tried unsuccessfully to take the door apart to install the new part that goes in the door and grabs the knob. When that didn't work, I stuck what looked like an alternative to replacing that part into the old part. It was a flexible part that was supposed to catch the knob. That worked for a while and then came out. Unfortunately, I'm back to putting a piece of cardboard between the door to make it stay up.
