I bought my dryer belt dirrectly from Danby. They first gave me the name of a company to get it from, when I called them, I was told they no longer handled Danby. So I called Danby back, the woman I talked with was very helpful. She ordered the belt and sent instructions on how to change the belt out myself, and said if I had any problems with the installation, give them a call. It took me about two and a half hourse to replace the belt. But if I had to do it again I think I could do it in 30 to 45 min. By the way I'm a 60yr old woman.
